FOOD & BEVERAGES
If you have visited other Genting Casinos in the UK, you will not be surprised to learn that the restaurant here is called Fahrenheit. That name is used for most Genting Casinos but the similarities do not end there as you will get the same high-quality dining experience that you do from all of the rest.
The Fahrenheit Restaurant opens at 7 pm and closes at midnight from Thursday to Sunday. Offering freshly prepared cuisine with a menu that has been designed to suit the tastes of all, you will be impressed with both the quality and the price of food on offer.
A Late Bar is also on hand to keep the refreshments of choice flowing through your body. Cocktails, wines, beers and spirits are all available for when the time comes to take a bit of a relaxing break from the gaming floor of the casino.
The Genting Casino in Edgbaston has held numerous legs of the Genting Poker Series over the years and this is one of the most popular poker tours in the UK. As for other events, unless it is a holiday period such as Christmas or New Year, there really isn’t too much else on offer in terms of live entertainment.
That said, the Late Bar does broadcast all of the sporting action that usually requires a subscription on big screens. Also, you can host your own parties at the casino and in the bar by making a group booking.
