GENTING CASINO – READING DRESS CODE
Like the majority of Genting Casinos in the UK, the Genting in Reading adopts a smart casual dress code. This essentially means that as long as you are relatively smartly dressed and are clean, you will be allowed entry.

Reservations can be made in advance for the ability to enjoy anything from a single dish right up to full three-course meal.
No night out would be complete without at least a couple of drinks and this can be done by popping into the Late Bar at the casino. Here you can order from a large selection of beers, lagers, wines, spirits and cocktails while also enjoying a graze and play menu that will help to keep hunger at bay.
As well as a lively bar, entertainment can also be found in a dedicated entertainment area. Here you will be able to enjoy a live DJ on Friday and Saturday evenings, live shows, tribute acts, karaoke nights and a whole host of other scheduled events.
