At Rocket, Parkhurst, the African-inspired décor is chic and simple.
Some might even call it minimalist as it is not overly busy with neutral colours bedecking the walls and just a few token pictures to break up the flow.
This store, as with the Rivonia branch, offers both an indoor area and a large terrace from which to watch the passing parade, drink in hand on a warm Highveld day.
