Spectacular Party in the Sky

Tobi Jooste launched his 3rd book together with BLOSS’ 3rd anniversary. Three + Three = Party in the Sky

The clouds hang low while a light breeze blows hair across the faces of the guest celebrities, TV-personalities and Springbok rugby players.

We are up in the clouds at the pool deck of the Aurum Restaurant at the Leonardo Hotel, currently the tallest building in South Africa. We are celebrating the launch of singer and author, Tobi Jooste’s latest book, ‘Als is ‘n F*kop’. This is Tobi’s third book and we’re here to share this spectacular event with Bloss Magazine, on their third anniversary.

The Aurum Restaurant is located in the heart of Sandton on the 7th floor of the Leonardo Hotel. AURUM is a timeless, unique culinary experience beyond that of ordinary dining as was experienced by the suburb canapés served to the guests.

While guests enjoy the spectacular view from high up in the sky with designer Gin&Tonic’s from 20 TWENTY Gin, estate wines from L’Avenir and beers, the flashes of cameras from the media bounce back and forth from the 55-story building. The light breeze tickles the body while the sun sets over the city. Waiters arrive with canapés that explode in your mouth.

The AURUM is a portal through which one can experience refined dining.

A nostalgic journey fuses old-world elegance with new-world cuisine, each dish a modern interpretation of culinary supremacy melded with world-class service. AURUM is the place to be!
