Mexican Fiesta | Katy’s Sunday Lunch


Katy’s Sunday Lunches have become a legendary, monthly meeting, where friends and family collect for good food, live music, skyline views and African sunsets.

We decided to mix things up in February and throw a Mexican Fiesta to launch Katy’s Sunday Lunches for 2016! Can you say… arrribbbaaaa! Talk about tequila taking over your usual Sunday siesta! We couldn’t help dancing off our Corona, tacos, chili con carne and lamb barbacoa when Tona (possibly the world’s greatest Mariachi band) started playing.

If you missed out, or if you joined in, it’s time to rewind into our Mexican Fiesta!

What’s On at 6 Desmond

There’s no better place to be the first Sunday of every month than 6 Desmond Street – Katy’s Palace is alive with Beukes & Delaney’s Irish Boere-Blues and the mesmerising smell of Fresh‘s chicken curry and roast lamb and of course nobody can ignore Katy’s epic wraparound view. Sir James is full of old-school and new-school vinyl traders and collectors flipping through boxes of LPs, sipping on drafts (even at 10am) and enjoying the scratchy, authentic sound of the vinyl. Milk Bar, the newest kid on the block, is the ultimate stop for a good cappuccino and sit-down brunch by the fireside. And of course, Amatuli – three levels of retail adventure. You could get lost for hours in the maze of antique furniture, African art and one of a kind pieces.

Beukes and Delaney Katys Palace Bar

If you’ve been to Katy’s Palace for Sunday Lunch, you’ve probably experienced this eccentric, eclectic and extremely talented duo’s tunes.

We chatted to Christoff Beukes and David Delaney about music, their debut album, “Good to be Alive”, career highs and lows and animals on carousels – of course!
