Francois van Coke’s new venture

March 1, 2019, Author: renate

Did you know that Francois van Coke and F*kofpolisiekar recently opened a bar right here in the City of Jacarandas? At 297 Lynnwood Road, to be exact. We asked Francois van Coke to complete a few sentences for us:

Owning a bar… is something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time. Great to do it with my best mates and I hope people from around the country will come and hang at our bar in Pretoria.

One day, while sitting in a bar… I thought I owned the place. It wasn’t mine, it was Perseverance Tavern in Cape Town. The oldest bar in the country.

Bars and music… are lekker man.

I wrote a song… today, ’cause I am working on a new album.

Two of my favourite things… are braai and rugby. Very South African.

Pretoria… is my favourite place to perform.

The F*kof Bar is… the coolest hang out in town.

My upcoming album is… going to be the best thing that I have done. It is going to be rocking and genre bending.

Francois van Coke & Vriende will be in Pretoria… because the previous one in Pretoria was the highlight of my career and I can’t wait to do it there again.

The Voice SAis a wonderful experience. I get to meet and work with people that I never would have if it wasn’t for the show.



When you’re at the F*kof Bar, take a selfie with your Hello Pretoria magazine, tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and stand a chance to win a 6-pack of F*kof Lagers! This includes a tote bag and a bottle opener.
