Bred from the burbs of mother Brynston, Rockets is the playground for the elite, classy, exclusive, and uniquely in a league of its own kind. Looking all diamond sparkly like the majestic sky, I went all Michael J with my outfit. I organized a friends outing at the posh Menlyn Rockets restaurant to experience the living that is on everyone’s lips, the hype, the vibe, and oh boy, did we live it up.
Situated at the heart of Menlyn Maine on the rooftop, this Rockets branch is everything, a game-changer, a melting point for all walks of life, fusing them together creating one big extraordinary lifestyle. Opening a branch in this area was a genius move. As we arrived the aura of the place was simply magical from the red carpet warm welcome at the entrance, the gorgeous deco, the Sublime food, live DJs with a great music vibe for all the guests dressed to the nines tied in perfectly together.
Table for 6 on a rustic, vintage feel table that spoke volumes! We were sat facing the middle where the stage was. More like the front row at an award show. Different DJs were playing on that night and had everyone dancing along. Heated hits warming us up for the cold winter months ahead. My first visit and already felt like home. As a lover of anything and everything artistic my heart was taken by this beautiful drawing of a woman above the DJ decks, impressive, one of a kind bringing a seductive touch to the place.
Housing Celebrities like the ever-gorgeous Buhle Samuels, sassy and super sexy no wonder why it is the place to be. Who wouldn’t want to rub shoulders with these ones of a kind breeds #onelovebuhle
The succulent salmon starter I had was sublime, Lee insisted on the Tempura prawns and the rest of the girls had pizza and volcano hot chicken wings that had Brenda on fire lol. Cocktails that spoke foreign, “island feel vibe” kept flowing igniting the dancers in us. We let loose, loads of selfies and clicking of more pics and vids “Instagram” and partied the night away.
We enjoyed every moment of our visit and most definitely now a favorite hot spot for me and my friends. Rockets is on another level as its name suggests. This is one place that needs to be added to everyone’s bucket list, the place to be seen, the place to experience. Indeed this is living. Rockets!
