D’USSÉ Cognac Takes Over Jozi This Festive Season
4 December 2019
Imagine six weeks of amazing cocktails, city vibes, tantalizing food, and art? What more can we Likers of Things ask for this festive season? Bring on the D’USSÉ Pop Up Cocktail Bar!
Conceived as a six-week experience, the D’USSÉ Cocktail Bar at Hallmark House will live as a weekend rooftop gallery and cocktail bar, open on Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as Sunday mornings for an all-day brunch offering. From the 13th of December 2019, the venue will offer Jozi stay-cationers the classic Joburg festive experience – appetizing cocktails, great food, amazing music, gorgeous views and sheer, unadulterated ambiance.
The names behind the initiative read like a collaboration between Jozi and the world’s finest. Chef Katlego Mlambo was once selected by Barack Obama to curate a dinner for the once-in-a-lifetime Mandela USA 100 Year tribute event and recently won the Rising Star award at The Eat Out Awards. Interior architect Tristan Du Plessis’ list of awards includes 2019 Restaurant and Bar design awards in London, Hotel of the Year at the 2019 AHEAD Awards (Middle East & Africa).
D’USSÉ Cognac – a byproduct of a partnership between supernova hip hop artist Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter and Bacardi Limited. Add to this top-ranking mix, property pioneers TJ and Louis Steyn of the Saxon Hotel and Steyn City, the Lalela Art Project – a groundbreaking initiative focused on at-risk youth, and Dale de Ruig, who established the evocatively elegant Marabi Club. Collectively, they have come together to curate an experience that will doubtless enhance how Joburgers do festive.
Dates: 13 December 2019 – 12 January 2020
Times: Friday and Saturday evenings + Sunday mornings from 11 am
Venue: Hallmark House, 54 Siemert Rd, New Doornfontein, Johannesburg
The experience certainly promises to deliver festive season essentials. D’USSÉ Cognac’s most delectable cocktails, elegantly paired up with Chef Katlego’s flavorsome culinary offerings, all set in an exquisitely designed rooftop space – the perfect setting to ring in the new decade!
