This is exactly what you’ll find at Steyn City. Best known as one of the most prestigious residential developments in Johannesburg, it’s also becoming one of the culinary hotspots in the city, thanks to its fine selection of restaurants, both old and new.
NINETEEN RESTAURANT AND CLUBHOUSE
You might opt to head over to Nineteen restaurant, which was named for its views over Steyn City’s Nicklaus-designed golf course. This is the place to visit if you’re in a more relaxed mood; watch the sun set while you sip on a delicious cocktail and catch up with colleagues, clients or friends, or turn it into a special occasion with your nearest and dearest over plates of delicious, bistro-style dishes. Nineteen is also the perfect place for a work lunch; in fact, the Clubhouse (which is home to Nineteen) also houses a small boardroom that’s ideal for meetings or a think-tank session with your team.
THE CLUB AT STEYN CITY
It would be a shame not to make use of Steyn City’s magnificent Nicklaus design championship course as it’s become one of the most sought-after courses in the country. The Club at Steyn City has been selected to host a number of international DP World tournaments, including the Jonsson Workwear Open and the Steyn City Championship, both of which are part of the European and Sunshine Tours.
The course, however, is just one element of the experience. The five-star service you’ll receive at The Club adds another dimension entirely. Look forward to extras like a personalised bag drop and porter service, complimentary snacks on the first tee box, a GPS system on the golf carts to indicate course distances, world-class locker rooms as well as an extensive selection of top-of-the-range apparel and equipment at the Pro Shop. The Club at Steyn City is open to non-residents and is a fabulous course for corporate golf days.
CAFÉ DEL SOL, STEYN CITY
While Steyn City’s golf course is all about peace and serenity, the mood at City Centre – the flagship apartment development – is a busy and bustling one.
Combining the exciting cosmopolitan air of the world’s greatest cities (a result of City Centre’s architecture and its pedestrianised design, which includes small villages clustered around several treed piazzas) with South Africans’ love of being outdoors, this fresh take on urban living is fast emerging as one of Joburg’s newest city hubs.
City Centre has something for everyone, but those who have an appetite for fine Italian cuisine will be delighted that award-winning restaurant brand, Café del Sol, has opened in the upper piazza. One of the best-loved restaurant names in Johannesburg, diners can expect signature dishes in a relaxed, yet vibrant setting as the ebb and flow of life passes by. Café del Sol has an extensive cocktail and wine list, which pair with signature dishes on the menu or antipasti to be shared among friends.
THE FARMHOUSE AT STEYN CITY
With its rolling lawns and play area, The Farmhouse is a hit with families and children and makes a great party venue. Adult celebrations such as baby showers or milestone birthdays can also be arranged at The Farmhouse – a private marquee and bespoke menus are also available.
Nineteen restaurant, The Club at Steyn City, Café del Sol Steyn City and The Farmhouse are all open to non-residents. For enquiries or to book, visit steyncity.co.za
