  • Braamfontein has come alive again! The Playground (previously Neighborgoods Market) has been completely revamped. It has a fresh and stylish new look. There's a variety of delicious food on offer, freshly squeezed lemonade, ice tea, old fashioned ginger beer, a huge bar, delectable cakes & desserts and much more. A new, clean bathroom is just what was needed. The entertainment line-up keeps it vibing
  • Feels like less variety than last time, but a more organised space, especially great with the bar. Thankful that they do cash only now.
