Emperors Palace recently renovated their Entertainment Emporium at a cost of over R120 million to create what is now surely the ultimate entertainment destination of choice in Gauteng. There are a host of great new restaurants to dine at, including the incredible Portuguese eatery Braza, Greek Tavern Platia and Indian restaurant Taste of Mumbai to name but a few. The Emporium also includes the stylish entertainment venue 64 @ The Palace (formerly Monsoon Lagoon) as well as the new state-of-the-art 3D Nu Metro Cinema Complex.
Two highlights in the Entertainment Emporium are sports bar Sportsville and trendy News Cafe who opened their doors in December 2009. News Cafe offers unique international décor and style, setting it apart as the ideal social setting. Over the years News Cafe has established itself as a hotspot for South Africa’s young and fashionable set. The vibrant restaurant and meeting venue is a place to see and be seen, so it’s no surprise that the brand has opened at Gauteng’s ultimate entertainment destination, Emperors Palace. Voted best cocktail bar for ten years running, it’s so much more than just a place to get fabulous food and drinks; it’s a place where beautiful people can come together and mingle in a relaxed and stylish setting.
Sportsville has been hailed as “the next best thing to live” and arrives just in time for the 2010 FIFA World Cup – the biggest sports event in the world! Sportsville’s official launch party at the close of last year, set the standard for future celebrations with celebrities and the public cheering for their local teams, creating a vibe matching that of being at the live game.
Sportsville will give sports fans an exceptional multi-sensory sports experience that is the next best thing to being at the game itself; offering guests first class TV sports viewing in a comfortable and entertaining environment, with a well-priced, fully serviced bar. The venue also boasts a “sports food” menu with a mouth-watering assortment of grills, spicy ribs, burgers and “Sportsville baskets”, perfect for snacking during the game.
Sportsville takes the sports venue experience to the limit 44 TV screens including a monster 3mx3m screen – with a dual purpose application for presentations – erected all around the venue. The covered outdoor braai and bar area is ideal for hot summer days; with match day braai’s hosted for many of the major sporting events.
News Cafe is a destination of choice for Joburg’s trend setters who are looking for a great evening out with friends whereas sport fans and players can get down to Sportsville to watch live sporting events, a unique viewing experience.
