New comedy club and bistro on Windermere Road.

Craft beers, top chef, best comedians from around SA

The Chairman - Bar and Jazz Lounge at 146 Mahatma Gandhi Road, Point.

The Point's cool factor has been kicked up a few notches...

Damnit.. I wish there were a few decent new places closer to Pinetown.. the whole drinking and driving thing kills the option of going out to these places during the weekend :(
Too damned expensive unfortunately :(...

I would love to be able to use one, but Pinetown into Morningside will cost me R230 one way, and mean i'd have no money to enjoy the evening.
These are the reasons we need to ensure our cities are more dense, walkable and mixed use.
Yup... agreed on this front....

Someone just needs to be brave and put up a trendy place in the Pinetown area.. or maybe Kloof (since its close enough to justify a taxi)

Maybe p-town will become hipster cool... Sadly don't see that... And kloof hillcrest people don't go out
P-Town is already hipster cool... if you are brave enough :p (although in saying that, from a property price perspective, I am seeing a massively different demographic starting to move into Pinetown and surrounds)

But yeah, Kloof/hillcrest people don't go out very much... unless its to stokers or the keg for the rugby.
I say with my umhlanga bias... :)

HAPPY HIPPO! love that place. That is where I always stay when visiting Durbs. You know what. Gonna book another stay right now!
Durban North's friendly rivalry with Morningside, Glenwood, and Umhlanga to establish itself as Durban's trendiest neighbourhood for eateries continues. SA's first dedicated Burrito Bar is about to open there. I must say that I am very impressed by the growth in eateries in Mackeurtan Ave and Broadway Ave (which are linked by Adelaide Tambo, which has eateries of its own). They're great assets to Durban's food scene.


South Africa’s first dedicated burrito bar opens in Durban this week

Monday, September 14th, 2015
by Nikita Buxton

Local entrepreneurs and Wakaberry founders Michele and Ken Fourie will open the doors to South Africa’s first burrito bar this Thursday. The new taqueria-style restaurant, named Four15, will be the latest eatery to hit Durban North’s growing foodie scene.

Four15 will purposely steer away from serving run-of-the-mill Mexican fare. An assortment of burritos will make up the core of the menu: giant tortillas filled with a mixture of Mission-style burrito ingredients such as beans, rice and meat as well as a range of more exotic and exciting combinations, including South African flavours of boerewors and chakalaka.

....Four15 opens its doors at 41 Mackeurtan Avenue on Thursday, 17 September 2015 at 11.30am. There will be various festivities throughout the day, including complimentary cocktails and exciting giveaways. To reserve a table, email [email protected].
