Although the surrounding neighbourhoods have seen better days, this historic pub, which traces its history back to 1929 when it opened as a tea room and illicit shebeen, still brims with warmth and character. Every Friday and Saturday there are energetic live jazz and blues gigs, and the eclectic decor and motley crew of regulars propping up the bar only add to The Radium's unique charm. A memorable one-of-a-kind spot with plenty of history, located in the middle of what is an otherwise gritty row of downmarket shops.
Open 10:00–24:00, Sun 11:00–17:00.
Admission R100–R120 on Saturday nights.
