The Bull Run

  Protea Hotel Balalaika, 20 Maude St, Sandton ,   Sandton          +27 11 884 1400     11 Dec 2018
created 03 Dec 2013
This elegant old building, attached to Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton, was once a countryside tea room back when Sandton was all rolling farmland. Today it retains the atmosphere of a relaxed oasis in the heart of Joburg's business district serving exceptional meat from the restaurant's in-house butchery.

Redesigned in winter 2018 to the tune of some R12 million by award-winning interior designer Tristan Du Plessis, the new look Bull Run now matches up mightily to the many glitzy restaurants which have opened up nearby in recent years. Alongside the revamp of the restaurant came the installation of a new bar, the Dollar Bar, with its unmistakable mural of Benjamin Franklin a cheeky nod to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange across the road, while on the street terrace an impressive bronze sculpture calls to mind the iconic Wall Street Bull in New York.
