For many of us, memories of the restful December holidays have faded and been replaced by the stresses and strains of daily life. Luckily, the period between March and May is awash with public holidays and simply by being smart about when you take your leave, you can maximize the amount of time you’ll have off to replenish your relaxation reserves.

One way of ensuring that you relax to the max is by spending this time at Hemingways Casino. With live entertainment, casino gaming, big screen blockbuster movies, delicious dining and shopping ‘til you drop, it’s no wonder this is East London’s number one entertainment destination.

Unwind with entertaining events

Catch concerts, exhibitions, live music and more at The Venue – East London’s leading events location. Keep an eye out to see which of South Africa’s best-loved artists will be gracing The Venue next.

Kick back in the casino

Home to 507 slot machines and a wide selection of table games, the casino is always a hive of excitement. Be sure to stop by and try your luck.

Mellow out with a movie

With movies@Hemingways having the largest screen in the Eastern Cape, seeing the latest releases in both 2D and 3D here is an unparalleled movie-going experience.

Relax at a range of restaurants

Hemingways has something to suit every dining taste at its three eateries. Visit Café Felix for delicious family favourites with garden views or, for a more sophisticated dining experience, stop in at the Key Largo Restaurant for its extensive buffet breakfast and thoughtfully prepared meals and snacks. Alternatively, Latitudes Action Bar offers mouth-watering meals, live entertainment and big screen sport action for your enjoyment.

Saunter around the shopping centre

With 180 stores ranging from clothing boutiques, jewellery stores and stationers, to music retailers, furniture shops and banking facilities, Hemingways Mall has it all. There’s also an entertainment centre complete with ten pin bowling, go-karting, 4D simulators, arcade games, kiddies rides and bumper cars.

After an entertainment-packed day, stay at the nearby Southern Sun Hemingways and see why it has been rated as the top hotel in East London by TripAdvisor. It is also the perfect base from which to explore East London and its abundance of attractions.

“With gaming, shopping, movies and more, Hemingways Casino is the perfect place for the whole family to unwind over the upcoming public holiday period,” says Hemingways Casino Marketing Manager Neville Austin.
