We always make plans to go out with our girlfriends, but something almost always comes up – either the babysitter cancels, your toddler starts throwing up or your hubby is working late.
But this is the weekend you should rally the troops and not let anything stand in the way of a fun night out with your friends – you deserve it!
And we have just the place for you.
The newly launched Rockets in Menlyn is where things will be happening this weekend! The restaurant is opening officially tonight – but we were lucky enough to get a little sneak peek of what’s to come last night – and we can assure you that you and your friends will have the time of your lives.
The décor is absolutely stunning, the food is delicious, the drinks are pretty and the vibe is just out of this world.
One of my favourite features of Rockets is the Champagne bar – and they have quite a selection available!
We also really love their Tapas menu – if you enjoy hot foods, you’ll love their ULTRA HOT chicken wings. The chicken satay skewers are also a winner and if you enjoy seafood you should definitely try the tempura prawns and salt & pepper calamari.
If you don’t feel like snacking, they also have burgers and pizzas on the menu.
If you can’t get a babysitter for Friday or Saturday, get your partner to watch the kids on Sunday for the #RocketsOnSunday launch. AKA and Ayanda Thabethe will be your hosts, and there’ll be DJ’s on deck throughout the evening to keep the party going.
