While numerous braai spots are alive during the day, the merrymaking slowly dies down as daylight fades away.

Catering for different tastes, this is one of the few places where the young and mature mix and mingle without a fuss or complaints.
This has also become a hub for celebrities and socialites, with many hosting their birthday parties at this event. Occasionally, there are surprise performances from some of the country’s top artistes. Free entry into the venue and reasonable pricing of beverages is also another aspect that is keeping the place attractive.
