Surrounded by the hustle and bustle in the heart of Sandton, the new bigger venue opened its doors at Green Park Corner earlier this month.
And with the current global shift to an earlier lifestyle meets entertainment experience, this cosmopolitan and eclectic Restaurant and Lounge is set to attract both local and international patrons, thriving to provide the best experience in a new world.
Rooted in Sandton as a nightlife venue providing the ultimate high-end African Music Lounge experience since the late 1990s, this lifestyle business decided to adapt its offering at the end of 2021 by adding a restaurant service to its arsenal.
With a rich heritage of more than two decades, Sankayi Restaurant and Lounge has officially reopened its doors at a brand-new premium location and is set to take the Joburg nightlife scene by storm.
Sankayi, a celebration of African flavour
Inspired by Mediterranean cuisine infused with various African flavours, the menu is exceptional.
All meals are curated with local South African ingredients, specifically designed to tease every sensory experience imaginable, where traditional culinary arts are on show. Patrons are invited to come and experience African luxury with a touch of global aesthetics.
Get ready to groove
When it comes to music, Sankayi has everything worked out for you. Since its creation in 1998, Sankayi has made its blueprint as one of the best lounges in Johannesburg by offering the best musical experience to its patrons.
From Hip-hop and R&B to African, Caribbean, and Latin music. Throw in some Amapiano and the musical spell of our resident DJs will keep you moving to the rhythm while enjoying the vibe.
Popping Bottles the Sankayi way
An endless selection of premium drinks are available at the beautifully styled bar. This includes a vast range of champagnes, cocktails, premium spirits, beers, coolers, and ciders.
Sankayi Restaurant and Lounge has a strict no under 23’s policy after 20:00 with a Smart Casual dress code that will need to be adhered to.
The capacity of this premium hangout venue is 300 and offers tailormade options for lavish private and corporate events alike.
