Cape Town - Jozi food lovers and enthusiasts get ready to eat your hearts out as celebrity chef Luke Dale-Roberts, of The Test Kitchen and Master Chef fame, is launching his popular Pop Luck Club at a venue near you.

Set to open on Wednesday, 05 July, the pop-up will be at Hallmark House’s brand new Marabi Jazz Bar in Johannesburg’s edgy Maboneng Precinct.

“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,” says Dale de Ruig, co-owner of The Marabi Club.

Dale-Roberts says although the menu will include some of the classic foods from the original pop-up in Cape Town, they have also created a few dishes that will be unique to The Marabi Club.

“Because it’s a pop-up we want to fit within the venue and adapt to the space that we’re in,” says Dale-Roberts. “And as with any pop-up we start with a certain menu, then the chefs involved will work together and develop it going forward to give it a unique identity."

Together with head chef Freddie Dias leading the kitchen, The Pot Luck Club will host pop-up dinners from Wednesdays to Saturdays as well as the restaurant’s famous Sunday brunches until 17 September.
