The Sophiatown Jazz Encounter

This heritage centre in the historic neighbourhood of Sophiatown, the 1950's home of South Africa's Drum generation of artists, poets and musicians, also serves as an intimate jazz concert venue with Sophiatown Jazz Encounters usually taking place on the last Friday of each month and regularly starring some of the leading names in jazz in Johannesburg.

Guests are invited to bring their own drinks and snacks to the concert. The centre will provide glasses and ice. See the website for details on the latest events. Email or call +27 83 550 7130 or +27 11 447 3490 to book. Tickets cost R150 at the door.
