We enjoyed a great show at Niki's by the trumpeter Lwanda Gogwana and his group. This place is cozy but is a throwback to the great jazz venues of the past. Service is good and everything is reasonably priced. If you are looking for jazz...in Jozi put this place on your list.More

We were staying a night at the Newtown City Lodge and decided to have a nightcap at Niki's after reading about it. It is a short walk from the hotel and if you want to experience the true feeling of the old Sophiatown, then this...is the place for you. Don't be put off by the look of the venue, you are there for the Jazz after all. And you will get great Jazz. Just a word of caution - we were charged a cover charge on entry of R50 , but on receiving our drinks bill we had been changed another R100 cover charge. But overall a truly wonderful way to finish off an eveningMore

If you want to experience the vibe of old Sophiatown with a contemporary Jozi twist with a warm friendly hostess serving food like momma made it then this is the place. Kick back and catch some jazzy tunes on a weekend or catch up with...local gossipMore

Depending what you looking for Niki's could be an experience all by itself. For live music and catching up with the arts scene in Jozie Nikis is a great venue. It has heart and soul and lots of energy. We only ever visited Niki's to...watch a show and I am not sure what the venue is like without live music. The food is basic bar food. Not sure if they updated their menu since we last visited. Its always great to experience the city of Jozie in its most authentic form and Niki's is steeped in tradition and a must experience at least once. For more perspective Niki's is just across the road from Market Theatre, City Lodge and Newtown Junction right by Mary Fitz Gerald squareMore

Niki's Oasis is a special Johannesburg gem - you go for the fantastic jazz music. I went on Friday 29th January 2016 and was swept away by the music of Feya Faku. The restaurant has been running for years - but really the reason you...go is for the people and the music. This was my second visit - parking is easy but even easier if you use Uber's great Johannesburg service. Service was good and very attentive. Management was always around and helpful without being intrusive. It is real heart of Johannesburg. The decor is unpretentious but comfortable. We didn't eat but went for the music. We had drinks and along the way shared a huge plate of french fries which were perfect. if you are looking for some soul in Johannesburg - this is the place to comeMore
