Menlyn’s Maine Attractions

The newest member of the Faircity family is the Faircity Junction, offering comfortable Pretoria accommodation in fully-serviced apartments, conveniently located in the leafy and upmarket suburb of Menlo Park. The other two hotels in Pretoria are Faircity Grosvenor Gardens and Faircity Roodevallei.

Just 3.5km down the road from Faircity Junction is Africa’s first green city, Menlyn Maine, an impressive mega development in Pretoria East. It is a walkable, liveable, mixed-use environment which includes offices, shopping, living and entertainment spaces. The developers are focusing on four major areas to design sustainable buildings: Energy consumption, Water Consumption, Transportation and Waste Management.

Central Square at Menlyn Maine offers shops, restaurants, an open air piazza and a Virgin Active Collection gym. Restaurants include tashas, Koi, Mythos, Turn ‘n Tender, Old Town and Ribs & Burgers. If a coffee fix is what you need, Starbucks is the perfect place to get it.

One of the biggest attractions at Menlyn Maine is Sun International’s Time Square which opened in April 2017. It is a modern architectural marvel and one of Africa’s largest casinos; with 2,000 slots and 100 tables stretching over 2 floors. A state-of-the-art arena is being built which will seat 8,500 people.

ans of Food Network’s Guy Fieri will be thrilled to know that his first restaurant in South Africa is at Time Square, complete with a mechanical bull for anyone wanting to work up an appetite for his flavour-packed American-Italian dishes. For something different, try Something’s Cooking by J’Something, a new concept kitchen headlined by Mi Casa vocalist Joao da Fonseca (aka J’Something).

Adults and children alike will be able to let loose at BOUNCE Trampoline Park. Trampolining releases endorphins, the feel-good brain chemicals, so you can literally jump yourself happier.

There is so much to do in the capital city, so book your accommodation at one of Faircity’s three hotels in Pretoria to begin your explorations: Faircity Grosvenor Gardens, Faircity Roodevallei or the recently opened serviced apartments, Faircity Junction.
