Southern Sun Rosebank Hotel Launches with New Grill House

One of Rosebank’s most iconic properties has relaunched as Southern Sun Rosebank and proudly houses what is destined to become Rosebank’s favourite grillhouse, The Grill Jichana

Dating back to 1924 when it opened as a residential house and then a two-storey hotel owned by SA Breweries in 1932, the Rosebank hotel has provided leisure and business travellers with a convenient, stylish base from which to explore and do business in Gauteng.

Tsogo Sun Hotels, through the Hospitality Property Fund, has proudly managed the property since 2009.

The public spaces have been rejuvenated to evolve the DNA of the hotel. From the reception area with a monotone graphic metallised map of Rosebank, to the many pieces of original, specially commissioned works of art, the hotel reflects on the proximity to Johannesburg’s ‘Art Mile’ and the inhabitants who have migrated to the city.

Three of The Grill Jichana’s most popular signature dishes are the famous Fillet with de Paris butter; roast confit duck leg and grilled breast with wok fried vegetables, egg noodles and cinnamon scented citrus jus, along with its signature spice; and a vegetarian delight: the haloumi stack with aubergine, black mushroom, red pepper, baby marrow ribbons, garlic buttered grilled polenta, savoury red lentils, saffron velouté and rocket pesto.

The second phase of the refurbishment, which will include all 318 rooms, will begin shortly and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

As part of the refurbishment, South Africa’s second Grill Jichana restaurant has opened in the hotel, to a deck that takes the restaurant into the outdoors. Jichana is Swahili slang for ‘eating good’.

Southern Sun operates in 24 locations across South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, the Seychelles and the UAE and is recognised for its quality and consistency.
