Spicing up Windhoek’s night life

10 March 2019 | Business

A group of young entrepreneurs have embarked on a business to bring life into the city after hours following the opening of Pelican Café last week.

At the launch, managing partner Simon Samuel stressed the importance of creating a healthy social life that allows the youth and working class to network and create job opportunities for start-ups.

“We are proud to say that we currently employ 28 staff members who are hungry for the job market. This varies from ground staff, chefs, waitrons and managers. We look forward to creating a home away from home experience for those that come here.”

Samuel added that a unique menu has been crafted for mainly meat and traditional food lovers. “What would good music be without food? That’s why we had a tasting session recently to get feedback from the public. We take customer service seriously and believe that customers are always right,” he said.

At the event, founder of Poiyah Media Ilke Platt, said that when her company was approached to handle public relations and communications for Pelican Café, they grabbed the opportunity to partner up. “This joint venture allows our business personalities to have their own residence. We currently manage Sunny Boy, Top Cheri, Leather Mein and Boss Madam alongside DJ K Boz and King Tee Dee. What better way to rope them in and allow them to take ownership of their own events?”

She said that these artists perform at other people’s events so often, that it’s about time that they act like business professionals and host their own shows. “This partnership was inevitable and in the best interest for all parties involved,” she said.

At the opening, well-known personality Che Ulenga said, “We need more collaboration to help each other grow. That’s why we are here; to celebrate Namibian entrepreneurs’ through arts, food, fashion, lifestyle and good music.”

The variety of music and the niche environment setup, set Pelican Café aside from the rest. With selected business personalities making use of this venue as their in-house stage, it is certainly destined for success.

Pelican Café is situated in Hochland Park above Woermann Brock.
