The original Back o’ the Moon was a famous shebeen in the historic Sophiatown of the 1950’s. It was a special place where rich and poor, the elite and the ordinary folk alike would meet in their Sunday best and enjoy music and great food. Some of the early legends of the South African music scene plied their trade at the Back o’ the Moon.

Back o’ the Moon was immortalised by Miriam Makeba in the late 50’s stage play, King Kong in which she sang the song Back o’ the Moon – a tribute to the rich history of Sophiatown of the late 50’s.

Today, our own Back o’ the Moon is a feast for the senses. It is the complete dining experience, offering an exquisite menu, impeccable service and great entertainment in a lavish and contemporary environment. Sit back, relax and enjoy the experience.
