Following a successful four year run, premium Rosebank nightclub HUSH today announced its official closure, hosting its final party this Friday night. The popular night spot having hosted some of the biggest local and international artists over the past few years including Chris Brown, Usher, J Cole, D’Banj, Ciara, Miguel, Wizkid, AKA and P Squared, will open its doors for the final night this weekend. The venue has represented some of the most premium branded events over the past 48 months including the Big Brother Africa series, the South African Music Awards launch night, Hennessey Nites, MTVBase Nites and the infamous Playboy Bunny Parties series to name a few.
Following the Soccer World Cup, HUSH was launched in September 2010, catering to a premium clientele and remained decidedly celebrity-focused to date, home to Africa’s entertainment industry. HUSH has been one of the first venues to introduce and popularize African music to an SA audience for the past few years and remained true to its market throughout their season.
The official shuttering and closure of HUSH is the ultimate result of the venue making way for a new nightlife concept due to open mid September 2014. HUSH owner Stephane Cohen and his team today announced the opening of a new and exciting concept to be launched in the next 3 months, ‘We are blessed to be able to evolve with the ever changing market and proud to be launching something exciting and very relevant for the times. It’s going to be a lot more premium than its predecessor which aims to change the face of the SA nightlife taking it to another level’.
