Ponte City Apartments, entrance off Joe Slovo Dr (turn off at Abel Rd and Lily Ave), Berea
For an only-in-Joburg kind of Valentine's date, pull up a seat at 5101, a quirky events space on the top floor of the sky-high Ponte City building, run by community tour company Dlala Nje. For Valentine's Day, Dlala Nje brings the tastes of the community to you, providing a three-course spread of pan-African cuisine from local suppliers, including Ethiopian starters, Cameroonian-style grilled fish with vetkoek balls and a surprise dessert. You can enjoy this delicious feast while taking in the awesome view of the city skyline and listen to the sounds of SammySax playing smooth jazz on the saxophone. After the meal, you will descend into the inner 'core' of the tube-shaped Ponte tower for a secret movie screening, in a setting unlike any 'movie theatre' you've experienced before!
Space is limited to 30 people, so reserve your spot early.
