Thunder Walker

The beautiful heritage building Somerset House on Gandhi Square, now known as the Thunder Walker, is a multi-functional space run by local tour company JoburgPlaces that takes advantage of the historic building’s many period features. The building on Gandhi Square is linked to the adjacent street by a unique early 20th Century tiled arcade and has been transformed with by JoburgPlaces in partnership with building owners Olitiziki Property Holdings and now hosts an underground bar, tasty cafe and a unique events venue.

Downstairs in the basement, the old bank vaults of the United Building Society have been turned into the Zwipi Underground Bar, a quirky space set amid hundreds of Edwardian safety deposit boxes and is the venue for Joburg Places' popular storytelling evenings. Meanwhile upstairs in the glorious arcade with its gleaming majolica tiles is the super-friendly Scatterlings cafe.
