This morning Facebook was abuzz with a photo offering some advice to Simba (from the Lion King) about Hatfield Square. For those of you who are not from Pretoria, Hatfield Square is one of popular party spots in the Capital City since it opened in 1996. It’s very central and is commonly referred to as “Die Vierkant” or “The Square” in Pretoria street lingo.
Drop Zone is to Pretoria what Billy the Bums is to Johannesburg. It’s the last place you want to end up at whilst out drinking in Hatfield Square. Students refer to Drop Zone as “Droppas” or “Mordor”. In case you did not know, Schivas is also known as “The Shire” (the other option if you’re on your way home from Hatfield Square).
The Square is definitely the place to be in Pretoria. There truly is something for everyone. It’s also walking distance from one of my favourite watering holes, Aandklas Hatfield.
I think most of you reading this who are regulars in Hatfield Square will find this extremely funny. This photo has been selected for the Funny Pictures section in the Humor category on Running Wolf’s Rant.
If you haven’t been to the square, make sure that you pull in one night. You will definitely have a good time. Mark my words. I can’t even begin to tell you stories about the good times that I’ve had there over the years.
