Fans React: Kitcheners Closure Marks The End Of An Era

By @SeptemberEleven on 03/27/2024 in News

Kitcheners Carvery Bar is a landmark in Braamfontein, an inclusive and progressive venue for music and parties that has hosted artists from different genres and outlook. 

Yesterday, after some speculation, Kitcheners shared the official announcement that the “pub by day and where the party’s at by night” was indeed closing down. 

“It is with heartbreak that we announce that due to economic circumstances the team behind Kitcheners will be moving on after 15 years of steering this ship through the choppy waters that is Joburg life,” the statement read. 

“We are incredibly proud to have been at the forefront of the city culture for the last decade and half. Through all the ups and down's we've helped launch the careers of countless Performers, DJ's, Comics and Promoters, made a huge positive impact on societal norms including perspectives on racism, gender and sexual equality, introduced wives to their husbands and most of all had a great time doing it.”

To exit in style, Kitcheners is hosting a 2-night extravaganza with a lineup of DJs who “have been instrumental in building the space over the years”. The event is taking place this weekend.
