24-hour city

From dawn till dusk, you'll always find something to do in Johannesburg. 

However the relentless pace slows in the evening, and some restaurant kitchens close at 10pm. Sunday nights are quiet, and many restaurants, galleries and museums are closed on Mondays. 

The city’s nightlife is scattered, so plan your night out in advance and call restaurants to check on kitchen closing times. 

Convenience stores at petrol stations are the most likely places to be open after hours if you need basics like airtime for your cellphone.
