If you want to have nice weekend evening in Sandton. Than Hard Rock would be a good option. Based at Mandela Square and very spacious. Nice music, lighting and drinks. You can enjoy the evening with reasonable cost. One must try if you are in Johannesburg.

The usual what you would expect from a HRC.
The location is perfect if you are staying at one of the surrounding hotels, easy access.
Service was great and of course the selection was plentiful.
Worth a visit for a quick one, one for the road or a late nighter.
