9 Scholtz Road, Green Point

Your Neighbourhood

The Atlantic blue of the ocean washes towards the green expanses of the perfectly named Green Point, a metropolitan enclave linking the coastline to the city centre. Appropriately this is where NINEONS feels perfectly at ease, within a green belt surrounded by the modernity of an urban cityscape. After its leisure-centric activities have filled the day and the sun sinks into the endless blue, the firefly-bright lights of the myriad of restaurants, bars and nightspots start to sparkle into life, with tastes and sounds from every corner of the world who have also come here to settle in the neighbourhood you will make your own.
