Jozi Boasts A New 5 Star Man Cave For 5 Star Rugby Fans

August 2014: Loud bars or even the couch at home in boxers and socks is how many die-hard rugby fans prefer their Currie Cup and Test fixes.

But a wood-panelled man cave with sumptuous leather sofas and a personal butler is how you do it if you and your mates want to watch your favourite teams in action in the style to which you’re accustomed.

African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel has realised this dream for sophisticated rugby fans and turned its super-luxurious Sound Room into the ultimate man cave for every Springbok Test match for the remainder of this year, as well as for those Currie Cup fixtures that don’t clash with Test dates.

The Sound Room is an exclusive gentlemen’s club-type venue that can accommodate only six people. It has an HD wide screen TV with crystal-clear surround sound, which means fans won’t miss a second of the action.
And if the level of your glass is getting low, your very own butler is on hand to make sure you never run out of your favourite tipple or snacks, because rugby isn’t rugby unless there’s biltong involved!
The stylish African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel’s rugby man cave heaven can be hired for R490 per match, which includes the venue, half a dozen local beers and a selection of snacks such as biltong and nuts.
