Joburgers, celebrate – Luke Dale-Roberts’ Pot Luck Club is set to open in downtown Johannesburg from the 6th of July until the end of September. And as it’s a pop-up restaurant, it’ll have a new name – the Pop Luck Club! Its Johannesburg home will be the brand-new Marabi Club at Hallmark House in Joburg’s Maboneng district. Hallmark House has been designed by acclaimed Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjaye, and the Marabi Club is set to be a little different than other establishments in the area.

“There are a handful of venues in Johannesburg offering live music and food, but none doing it at a level that we’ve been seeing internationally, to a point where the food, music, service and décor can all stand alone,” explains Dale de Ruig, co-owner of The Marabi Club. “For The Marabi Club we want to make sure both the music and the food have their own spotlight, and I believe bringing Luke and his team on board closes the circle.”

On the menu, there’ll be a selection of classics from The Pot Luck Club: the likes of panko-crusted octopus with doenjang mayonnaise, pickled cucumber and octopus teriyaki; alongside the delectable smoked beef fillet in truffle café au lait sauce. The beef tataki with hoisin dressing, coriander pesto and ponzu mayo is also a must.

“But we’ve also created a few dishes that will be unique to The Marabi Club,” says Dale-Roberts. While soaking up the music, diners can tuck into bespoke dishes such as duck spring rolls in hoisin dressing, and Dale-Roberts’ matchless take on a classic Cuban sandwich.

Both Luke Dale-Roberts and Frederico Dias, Head Chef at The Pot Luck Club in Cape Town, will be on hand from day one to ensure the restaurant gets off to a smooth start.  Along with serving dinner three nights a week (Thursday through to Saturday), The Pop Luck Club will also open for Sunday Lunch.
