The Local Culture is a trendy new restaurant in Greenside, Johannesburg. Started by brother and sister duo, Divan Coetzer van Buuren en Arlene Coetzer. These two siblings took inspiration from their Afrikaans heritage and gave it a modern Jozi twist. Serving up skilpadjies, pampoenkoekies and even deep fried paptert, deservedly called A-maize-balls.

With their larger-than-life personalities, they will make you feel right at home, while dishing up delicious meals and drinks. They try and source as much of the ingredients locally and in the process they have stumbled upon some great local brands. The designer bottled water, “Not Made In China” that comes in hipster flask, is one of the favourites. Then of course there is the Mirari Pink G&T on tap, a definite crowd pleaser made right here in Jozi.

The Local Culture has become more than a restaurant or a bar. It is a place were like minded people of Jozi meet, to catch up with old friends, make some new ones and enjoy great food with warm hospitality… true Jozi style. Our food is a collection of old favorites with a modern twist and there are some new creations that will make you wonder why you’ve never tasted this before! Inspired by the history, people and diversity of the City of Gold, the space is comfortable, modern and funky.

Bring friends and family, and you will soon find out why we are everyone’s local hangout.
