An unprecedented outpouring of sadness and disbelief filled social media following the news of Coutroulis’ passing a week ago. The popular nightclub and hospitality mogul was a father to four children and was married to former Miss South Africa Vanessa Carreira. His nightclubs became synonymous with big names, having hosted a number of major events including the Maxim Top 100 and international celebrities like David Beckham, Black Coffee, and Drake to name a few.


The live stream for Chris Coutroulis’ funeral service can be viewed here or via YouTube directly:



Staff, friends, and socialites alike gathered outside Taboo in Sandton last night to pay their last respects at a candle-lit vigil, laying down roses in memory of Coutroulis and observing a moment of silence before releasing white balloons into the Sandton sunset. Some of the Taboo staff members paying their last respects had worked with Coutroulis for well over 15-years.
