The staff does not attend to guests. The place is untidy and smells horrible. No manager in store. Worst bar restaurants. Don’t recommend if you love great taste.

This was my regular spot when I was in Joburg - good bartenders and great drink specials. Wonderful outdoor and indoor seating.

My friend and I stumbled upon this bar and met his local friend for an evening session. The place was packed with hip young locals relaxing to an excellent soundtrack of classic hip-hop and R&B, as well as some modern EDM and house mixed in...too. There were 2 for 1 deals on cocktails until 1900, which we certainly took advantage of! It was an awesome place to relax and soak in the local scene. The rear terrace is the place to be, but seating is limited so arrive early to get an area. The food menu also looked very appetising.More

Great Dane is a lovely place to let your hair down and dance till you drop! The decor is creative and fun. The music is always good. Drinks are well priced and staff are very friendly. I will forever love this spot.

Great Bar to have a crazy night out with friends. Go on a Thursday night if you can - they often have parties then. Famous for their Hot Dogs washed down with copious amounts of Tequila.

Great Dane has such an awesome vibe. It's a great spot to go for drinks. Situated in Braamfontein opposite Neighbourgoods the location could not be better. All drinks are reasonably priced. The winner for me is the outdoor courtyard at the back. Great spot to...chill with friends.More

Trendy little place with no sign outside, but ask anyone on the street and they will point you in the right direction. Famous for its use of recycled products. Floor is covered in copper coins, looks amazing. Hilarious lampshades outside, DJ booth is made from...businessman's briefcase, never knew there were so many dart board manufactures as artsy display on one wall. Also the place is famous for it's Hotdogs.More

This venue is awesome, different and unique. The Great Dane in Braamfontein brings back memories of the old Johannesburg, when you could go out and guarantee yourself a good night of food and partying. The crowd is a great mix of ages enjoying music that...takes you back in time. The patrons are friendly and gets rather busy and can be a squeeze to get a drink. The food is exciting with uniquehot dogs. So what is Great Dane, a restaurant or club, i just think the location in trendy and up and coming area in braamfontein can be called a restoclub. So if you loking to get away from the main stream and the norm of Jhb, i really recommend you check this place out. I can guarantee you a good time with friends and out of townersMore
