There is an old building in Maboneng called The Cosmopolitan which I have always looked at from the outside and thought what an amazing piece of old architecture, it’s so beautiful and it makes me so happy to know that it has now been restored and turned into a really awesome space that contains not one but two great restaurants. A few shops that sell very cool curated goods like Crystal Birch hats, Margot Molyneux clothing etc, as well as an impressive art collection that is all for sale.
The restaurants inside are the ever impressive Cube which has moved from Parktown North to this location and then The Cosmopolitan Bar, owned and run by the same people, so you know the food is going to look as good as it tastes.
Shane and I visited The Cosmopolitan Bar on Saturday and had such a nice afternoon. The restaurant is simply laid out and is surrounded by the building’s original exposed brick walls and big wooden framed windows which let in the most amazing light – great for photos not so great for Shane who had to wait for me to take pictures of his meal before he could tuck in.
