Melville Residents' Association

Dear Melville Community,

An application was lodged as advised earlier:

The application is for a restaurant at 27 Boxes – GAB & GRILLS.

The MRA will, as is the practice, lodge an objection – in this instance specifically as the application is flawed, the lease agreement of 27 Boxes (which is owned by the CoJ via the Johannesburg Property Company) does not allow for liquor licenced premises.

Please ensure to lodge the objection latest on 24 March 2022.

Please review the application and if you feel it deems an objection please do so in your personal capacity.


Those wishing to object must do so in writing, addressed to the Gauteng Liquor Board and not the Melville Residents’ Association. The draft objection of the MRA in respect of GAB & GRILLS can be found here

You can also download a copy directly from our website


  • Ensure that you supply your details correctly and
  • that the objection is signed and dated

In view of COVID-19, please email your objection to the Liquor Board latest 24 March 2022 to and and refer to the relevant application GAB & GRILLS: Application GLB 7000015091.

Please copy the agent Maria da Silva of Silver Star Brokers on and the MRA on
