AKRAFO STORE at THE COSMOPOLITAN, Johannesburg
THE WELLNESS GOURMET AFRO-EPICERIE
September 2016 - Akrafo's first store opened in the heritage building THE COSMOPOLITAN in Maboneng "Place of Light", Johannesburg (South Africa).
The Cosmopolitan is a heritage building, built in 1899 and situated in the heart of the vibrant and avant-garde neighborhood, Maboneng Precinct, directly opposite The Museum of African Design (MOAD).
The building is as architecturally unique to Johannesburg as it is beautiful, and forms part of the historical narrative of the city.
The Cosmopolitan has been transformed into a high-end retail emporium with multiple stores that include fashion, grooming and home as well as the revival of the historic ‘Lion Bar’ and the introduction of a restaurant and lounge that service the large inner courtyard. All the brands involved are exquisitely curated to create a one of a kind luxury experience in the city.
