Experience the high life at Highball Craft Bar

This “trendy artisanal craft bar” boasts one of the best views in Johannesburg, overlooking the first hole of the Randpark Golf Course.

The setting and décor of the place itself is classy and casual. You can opt for the couches or a formal dinner table or bar like setting with the stools against the walls.

The Highball serves a selection of local craft drinks including beers, gins, whiskeys, rums and vodkas. No SAB brands in sight! The selection is all quality spirits and they specialise in gin which is all the rage at the moment. They even had a delicious blueberry tonic which I have never seen before.

The Highball’s eclectic menu is made up from a tempting selection of crafted tapas, light bites, salads, sandwiches, sharing boards and daily specials prepared by a French chef all food is Asian French inspired a really great combo.

At the dine jozi style dinner we were offered a tapas style menu tasting of all the favourites it was a tough decision to pick a favourite but I highly recommend the sticky pork belly & broccoli. The pork belly was soft and delivered the just the right amount of flavour and throwing in the broccoli that is steamed makes it such a healthy option.

It is a great bar with great service to kick back and enjoy after a round of golf or a long day at work.
