The Convo

Hip,Trendy Pot Luck Club

1 January 2013

As the weather gets colder and we can take a breath after a crazy season, we’ve started to explore exciting new venues that we think you should visit on your next trip to Cape Town. These are restaurants, bars, nightclubs etc that we can thoroughly recommend as a good night out!

The Pot Luck club situated 6 storeys up with spectacular 360 degree views of Cape Town, in a disused grain silo in Woodstock, is the latest sensation! Voted as one of the best restaurants in Cape Town the Pot Luck club is hip, trendy, sophisticated and the food is world class!

It’s the latest restaurant by local food guru Luke Dale- Roberts lauded as South Africa’s best chef. Conceived as a place for young creative chefs to try out new recipes, it means that the menu is constantly changing and new tastes being introduced.

The Pot Luck Club is situated within The Biscuit Mill, which, as the name suggests, is a converted Biscuit Mill, and is now home to some of the hippest interior, design and décor boutique stores. Saturdays are wild there with awesome live music, market stalls and an organic food market that will blow your socks off. No mass produced items here – everything is local, handmade and of exceptional quality. Next time in Cape Town it’s a MUST!!
