Creamy Café doubles as coffee shop and club location

Creamy Café recently moved from Greenside to Illovo to expand its offering, and to cater for families and adults in two separate sections of the same premises.

Creamy Café is one of the most hidden hotspots in northern Johannesburg which offer far more than one would think when walking through the doors. Based in the Illovo Junction ground floor, it has a quintessential coffee shop aesthetic, with wooden walls and black finishes being a key element thereof. The café menus are posted on black boards and showcase a variety of hot drinks and light meals.

Also included at Creamy Café is a separate staircase that leads to a sizeable bar and lounge area. With an extensive drinks list and entertainment centre, adults are able to unwind at the discretely located space. The venue also leans towards a nightclub atmosphere in the evenings, as it closes at 23:00 in compliance with the rules and regulations of Alert Level 1.

Creamy Café was previously located in Greenside at a smaller premises, and only recently moved to Illovo in August 2020. With the easing of some restrictions in recent months, the café and bar has gained momentum since October 2020, with my people willing to return to the night-time social life.
