A mate and I popped into Lucky's Pub & Grill in Phokeng, locally this style of Pub and Grill is know as "Shisa nyama". This is one of the famous local entertainment places in Phokeng, the town surrounding the Royal Bafokeng Stadium. By the end of this Soccer World Cup, the world will know about it and would've experienced the hospitality township style.



Forget about your local pub like the Knight & Swan this is something completely different. Basically on offer is meat and drinks. You go to the butchery purchase your own meat and take it outside to the barbeque area. Here you can cook it yourself or you can get someone to do it for you. Although any self respecting man will be in charge of his own meat on the "braai" or barbeque. You can sit outside in the pleasant winter sun and just pop into the bar for a few cold ones of your choice. Inside there are TV's so you can follow other games while waiting for your match to start.


How to get there? Take the N4 (west) from Rustenburg follow the World Cup stadium signs, take the stadium/Sun City turn off and pass the park and ride facilities. Travel along the new R565 towards Sun City, take the Morgenzon/Phokeng off-ramp. Turn right towards Phokeng town, travel down Ratshufi for about 1.5km, turn left into Magatathebe, Lucky's on your left! It's gonna get busy so arrive early.
