Joziburg Lane homepage



One Eloff is a property, developed and operated by Molten Black, comprising residential apartments, office space and two retail areas: the Joziurg Lane and the E1 Traders Market.

Joziburg Lane is an alleyway of bespoke retail and food outlets as well as artist studios on the side of the One Eloff building. Most prominent along the lane is Hangout Jozi – a tasting bar, braai-eatery and deli-foodhall. Other lane shops are still under development but with several already trading such as Cramers Coffee, Africa Wonderful Embroidery, The Nut Crunch,  Zaris Espresso Bar and Noni’s Foods.

The E1 Traders Market is an indoor, bargain shopping mall and market area, also with an office component (currently under construction).

Hangout Jozi includes JoburgPlaces  (both are brands of Anchorco Pty Ltd which is essentially a tourism and activations business). The secret gem of Hangout Jozi is its events venue at the culmination of the lane. Hangout Jozi provides a destination from where JoburgPlaces tours start and end – and where JoburgPlaces customers can ‘hang-out’ enjoying food, drinks and shopping as part of their city explorations. It essentially is a lounge space to inner-city residents and office workers and, in turn, a great place for travellers to mingle with locals, experiencing the mesmerising real Joburg.


Hangout Jozi Tasting Bar, Braai-eatery and deli-foodhall
Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 5pm
(bar stays open into the evening) plus Friday nights everything stays open till 10pm.

Apart from our own craft bar, South African deli and braai-platter menu, Jeff’s Eats offers South African-Indian foods from an independent stall. For special occasions like ‘Hangout Weekend” at the end of January, we also bring in many additional pop-up food and craft traders.

Events Hall
The jewel in our crown is an massive events space that can host large gatherings (parties, festivals, exhibitions, conferences and more). The venue can be booked for private events. We are ready to host you with an exceptional space, bar and catering service.

Individual shops
The shopping mix along the Joziburg Lane is still under development but stores such as Cramers Coffee, African Wonderful Embroidery, Noni’s Food and Zaris Espresso Bar are already trading along the lane. While their operating hours generally coincide with that of the bar, braai-eatery and deli-foodhall mentioned above, shops determine their own trading hours. You may find some open on Mondays too and at different hours as the anchor venue.

A mammoth yellow-and-blue structure in south-central Johannesburg is fast becoming an icon of the city’s reinvention. Reminiscent of an Art Deco cruise ship anchored in a large city port, this gigantic building was once at the heart of Joburg’s Motor Town. Home to swanky cars in the 1950s and later to OK Bazaars, this city landmark fell upon hard times eventually, standing derelict and vacant on the edge of the city.

However, downtown is rising once again. The giant of south-central Johannesburg is now known as One Eloff, home to 320  loft-style rental apartments in what used the be empty parking garages just over a year ago. And with the new energy brought by residents, the ground-floor of One Eloff is morphing into the heart of the urban hustle and home of the grind. Under construction are several office and retail projects, tapping into the frenetic culture of Joburg’s retail entrepreneurs.

Amidst this bustle, the Joziburg Lane offers respite – here Joburg’s people gather to lounge in the sun and to tantalize their taste buds. The Joziburg Lane is a hidden gem – an alleyway that runs along the side of One Eloff, lined with bespoke shops, eateries, artist spaces and culminating in the Hangout Jozi tasting bar, braai-eatery, deli-foodhall and events venue.
