Exactly 109 days after it opened its doors to the public, Café 49 is set to officially open on Good Friday, April 19th 2019. After giving dominant hangouts a run for their money, Jinja’s newest entrant is set to officially roll.
On it’s grand opening that is expected to be a VIP affair, we are yet to know what attractions will be up that day but we can confirm from inside sources that the restaurant section of the hangout will be fully functional to complete the ‘café’ in the name.
“We are nearly done with the kitchen and are now working to finish restaurant. This should be ready before we open up on 19th April… it’ll be Good Friday,” intimated a top manager at the hangout.
Located on Plot 49 Nile Crescent (you now know where the name comes from), opposite former Club Velvet, Café 49, which temporarily opened to the public on Monday December 31st 2018, was setup as a bar, outdoor lounge, restaurant and coffee shop. It’s uniqueness in ambiance tops the list of reasons partiers offer to patronize the place over established hangouts.
With veteran disc spinner DJ Freshman as the house DJ, the hangout has featured Jinja’s crème deejays, a move that has driven almost all partiers to the newbie. BABA TV’s DJ Wickie plays on Wednesdays and occasionally on Fridays while DJ Csilla comes in once in a while on Saturdays.
