– Abigail Donnelly, Editor and Awards judge, Eat Out

“A truly fantastic chef, … he has this ability of putting seemingly incongruent ingredients together in such a way that they work amazingly well – which is something close to my heart.” – Heston Blumenthal, The Fat Duck.

An Amazing Culinary Experience

Inspiration Space

From the decor to the choice of water glasses, The Shortmarket Club Johannesburg is the place for a unique and bespoke experience. Diners can expect elements such as rich deep tones, warm lighting, old fashioned touches and accents of leather, brass and fluted glass all artfully staged in a heritage brasserie and smoky cigar lounge type setting.

When it comes to art, inspiration was taken from the famous hand burnt butterfly installation by artist Mark Rautenbach seen in the Cape Town restaurant.”
– Sandalene Dale Roberts
