R94 Million spent on the Redevelopment of the spectacular new Emporium at Emperors Palace

19 August 2009

The time for change has arrived to the perennially popular Emporium at Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention Resort. In the usual Emperors Palace style, they have done it in grand fashion, spending R94 Million on redeveloping the area with the best restaurants and entertainment facilities in Africa, including the continent’s ultimate cinema experience.

One of the highlights of redevelopment of the Emporium at Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention Resort is the opening of a spectacular state of the art movie theatre experience by Nu Metro which will house one of the largest cinemas on the African Continent, seating over 500 people.

There will be six movie theatres including two ultra-modern digital cinemas using a combination of Christie digital and 35mm projectors, as well as a permanent 3D cinema.

A family movie theatre will utilize a combination of beanbag & top-end seating to accommodate a fun-filled informal experience while another screen will feature plush seating and private bar facilities.

The acoustics are being especially designed to provide the clearest, most realist sound possible using only the best equipment available on the market today.

The extensive redevelopment project will complete in stages and is designed to transform The Emporium into a destination entertainment venue, catering extensively for families and complimenting the four hotels, gaming facilities and convention business of the resort.

The magnificent replica statue of David, standing an impressive 5.7 metres high underneath the ever blue sky will now oversee a feast of fine restaurants - some, old favourites and many, new and exciting additions. Highlights include the expansion of Tribes, the chic Africa steakhouse, Platia, a traditional Greek taverna, the popular Portuguese eatery Braza and exotic Taste of Mumbai. Best cocktail bar for 10 years running and best pick up spot News Café is a recent addition, as is the Betting World, offering an extensive variety of betting facilities. Not forgetting the young ‘un of the family, a brand new Childcare facility, managed by a qualified and experienced childcare expert, will offer a safe, secure and stimulating environment for younger children.  A new games arcade operated by the Magic Company will cater for the teens with the latest video and arcade games.

The new Emporium at Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention Resort will offer a unique experience with fine food, great entertainment, superior child care facilities and of course safe, secure and extensive parking.
