Melville is an artistic suburb of Johannesburg, popular amongst students from the nearby University of Johannesburg. This is the location of many trendy restaurants and bars.

In 1896, the suburb was named after land suveyor Edward Melville. In the public sale notice, the suburb was described as a "picturesque and healthy spot in the vicinity of Johannesburg with a magnificent view of the wooded country to the north with the blue Pretoria ranges stretching like lines of steel against the horizon".
