The Rooftop unplugged


DESPITE the harsh economic environment, some people are able to see exciting opportunities in the midst of the turmoil.


This is the case with The Rooftop Restaurant situated at Coal House at the corner of Nelson Mandela and Leopold Takawira streets in Harare, where people can wine and dine as well as be entertained while they have a view of all corners of the central business district (CBD).

In a bid to revive the rooftop spark and create a unique, yet comfortable hangout restaurant in the CBD, restaurant manager, Audrey Tofara Nyoni said: “I always had a vision to create such a place for people and when I came to view this rooftop it was dirty and littered, but I knew something good could come out of the mess for the people of Harare.”

Nyoni said she had no idea that the response would be so amazing in only two weeks hence she was grateful that entertainers had found the place to be a perfect spot to relax and dine while having a bird’s eye view of the city centre.

The joint, which was opened two weeks ago, will tonight host its first performance by female musician Selmor Mtukudzi.

“We are hoping to have more artistes coming to perform in future for the guests that have been coming in each day and many others that are yet to know and visit us here,” she said.

Nyoni said they offered corporate and personal catering services to individuals requiring.

“Whether one is at work or in the comfort of their homes, we offer our clients a home delivery service of their most preferred dishes,” she said.
