Cito’s City Hits – For the Fans!
He is known throughout South Africa as the handsome and energetic frontman of rock band Wonderboom, but gained even more fans playing the role of Jesus in the local production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
This is what Cito had to say about some of his favourite brands and places in Joburg & Cape Town:
“I love wearing bluecollarwhitecollar shirts. Designers and business partners, Paul Van Der Spuy (who is a living inspiration and loves bikes, like I do) and Adrian Heneke head this custom men’s shirt label and have outlets in Kloof Street, Cape Town and The Zone, Rosebank, Joburg. The designs and quality of fabric are beautiful and stand out above the rest!
They also sell at The Old Biscuit Mill,during the Organic Market on Saturdays, which is also great! Delicious organic food and drink, bustling with vibe and energy. And at The Old Biscuit Mill, there just happens to be my favourite coffee shop and microroasters, Espressolab which is run, hands-on, by an amazing Portuguese-Swedish couple and cool barista team. I even have their coffee beans sent up to Joburg; that’s how good it is!
Next door to the shop is a sweet delicatessen called Saucisse. I usually order my sandwich there and have it sent next door almost every day when I’m in Cape Town! They all know me there…
For hanging out with friends and maybe catching an intimate live session, Julep Bar, on Long Street, Cape Town.
One of my best finds the past year has to be The Maboneng Precinct, in downtown Joburg! Arts On Main (also great organic market on Sundays!) and 12 Decades Hotel Rooftop are the best thing that has happened to Joburg and I get a kick riding into town with my wife on my bike to hang out there.
Been doing a monthly lawn bowls date at Zoo Lake Bowling Club, which has been so much fun! My favourite portuguese restaurant, Cesco’s, in Strydom Park has the most delicious, authentic feel-good food.”
