So who’s come together to curate this festive experience? Chef Katlego Mlambo – you may recall he was once selected by Barack Obama to curate a dinner for the once-in-a-lifetime Mandela USA 100 Year tribute event; interior architect Tristan Du Plessis; D’USSÉ Cognac, property pioneers TJ and Louis Steyn of the Saxon Hotel and Steyn City; the Lalela Art Project – a groundbreaking initiative focused on at-risk youth; and Dale de Ruig, who established the evocatively elegant Marabi Club.

Francois Portier, area director for Bacardi in Sub-Saharan Africa, says, ‘D’USSÉ Cognac has distinguished itself as a premium offering that can be both traditional and iconic, as well as adventurous and bold.

‘The D’USSÉ Pop-Up Cocktail Bar at Hallmark House is an amazing representation of what the brand is about. The collaboration between seasoned, world-renowned players and vibrant new talent, working together to create a memorable experience that defines Joburg’s timeless energy, a space where incredible moments and timeless memories will be made.’
