GrandWest Roxy Revenue Bar

6 September - 13 October 2007


Spring is upon us and GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World are once again giving you a really good reason to come and experience a grand time at GrandWest!


Showy, flashy, ostentatious, garish, sensational, vivid. These are all words that apply to piano maestro Liberace, the original ‘King of Bling’ and arguably the most flamboyant entertainer of the century.

Experience Liberace, his furs, his rings, his candelabra, and above all, his beautiful music in the tribute show Liberocco.

The musical line up includes the Warsaw Concerto, Rhapsody in Blue, Jealousy Tango, Moonlight Sonata, Chopsticks, the Tango from the film Scent of a Woman and many more appropriately ‘diamond draped’ Liberace tunes.

Popular pianist Rocco de Villiers has produced a superb script and musical arrangements complimented by direction from the ever professional Tobie Cronje and choreography by Elton Fortune.

GrandWest Expansion Project: The GrandWest Expansion is officially on track! The idea of a grander GrandWest includes not only a considerable expansion of the gambling facilities, but also additional restaurants, a 10-pin bowling alley and a 5 000-seat multi-purpose indoor arena.
GrandWest has reached capacity and the expansion project launched in May 2006 now leads to a doubling of slot machines to 2 500, with the completion of a new Smoking Casino and a Smoking Prive. The alterations to GrandWest Casino will continue and will include the multi purpose arena which will allow us to host live shows and productions at a larger scale, extended family entertainment, a larger parkade and a covered link walkway.

The main casino floor has been re arranged and has become completely non – smoking. GrandWest will also be creating attractive pause areas to enhance the gaming experience. The Magic Company boasts additional facilities, including a state of the art Bowling Alley and Video Arcade. To add, GrandWest plans to diversify and broaden the family experience.

Exciting times lie ahead for GrandWest and Johannesburg!
