Inspired by its namesake, the Eastern Cape town of Alice, eDikeni is a uniquely Ubuntu-centric kitchen-bar-lounge tucked away in Africa’s commercial heart, Sandton, Johannesburg.
Its location, 11 Alice Lane, is no accident. It’s a vision come to life for Ubuntu champion Lereko Ntshona, who grew up in Alice. But it’s not only a nostalgic ode to Ntshona’s hometown. Because of Alice’s historic and symbolic meaning, this space resonates with a heritage we all share. Being at eDikeni, surrounded by high-rises and corporate giants, feels a lot like being watched over by our great leaders, who overcame the odds to graduate from Alice’s Fort Hare University before changing our nation’s story. In a sense, Alice might be home to us all.
