The business was established in 2019, 8 Months before the onset of Covid 19. The business has successfully kept its doors open through this time and generated a profit while doing so.

The restaurant has a staff compliment of 20 people. 3 chefs, 3 cleaners, 7 waiters, 5 bartenders. and 2 managers. Most of our staff have been with us for over a year and we tend to have a low staff turnover which allows for consistency.
The business does have very involved owners, however the management team is very involved and runs the day to day operations of the business informing the owners on a daily basis.
There are currently 2 managing owners and 2 silent partners, however it can easily be run with one owner and the management team in place.
We have a loyal customer base that we have grown over the last 3 years using social media and being relevant in the Johannesburg night life scene.
The business works closely with Bacardi, RGBC , Pernod Ricard and Cape Brewing Company for stock deals.

The business usually has a Dj for the weekends and runs a quiz every Thursday night which usually has a great turnout as well as live music on a Sunday.
The business at this point is very plug and play and just requires owners who are passionate for hospitality and is looking to grow an already established business.
The building the business is situated in also has the potential to be split and sublet which allows for the rent to be reduced for the restaurant itself. The rental is quite competitive compared to the rest of the street.
The business also comes with all relevant licences and a liquor license which is hard to come by in Melville area.
The restaurant has a modern street food style menu as well as cocktail menu. We run a daily Gin and tonic special that is very popular and has become a staple of our shop.
