Durban’s magnificent Gateway Theatre of Shopping is a unique retail and entertainment complex filled with over 400 outlets, offering anything and everything a shopper could want. Numerous options are available for shoppers, ranging from clothing and accessories to high-tech equipment, restaurants, jewellers and a host of entertainment facilities.
Situated in Umhlanga, a mere 20 minutes from Durban’s Golden Mile, Gateway is the largest shopping destination in South Africa. There is so much on offer for families at this entertainment hub.
While you are shopping up a storm at one of the department stores, which include Checkers Hyper, Super Spar, Game, Edgars, Woolworths and Clicks to name but a few, let the kids enjoy some fun and entertainment ranging from Action Bowling, Video Arcade, Formula Dodgems, Tree House Party Zone to the Science Centre, Wave House and Expo Explore.
You will also find a variety of stores offering fashion, arts and crafts, stationery, electronics, books, and a whole lot more. Other features include banking facilities, hair and beauty salons, jewellery stores, travel services, a pharmacy, car wash facility, post office, and Virgin Active Gym.
You’ll definitely have worked up an appetite after all that, so thankfully the Food Court offers a wide range of options to fill the gap. Some of the favourites include Barcelos Flame Grilled Chicken, Beluga, Cape Town Fish Market, Col’Cacchio and Dros Restaurant & Wine Cellar. If you’re after something a little more casual and quick, head to Nando’s, McDonalds, Ocean Basket, Panarottis, Spur or Wimpy.
Gateway is a one-stop entertainment venue with activities for all ages. Rope family and friends in for a day of bowling and go-karting, enjoy a game of pool, chill out and watch a movie or experience the Barnyard – a dinner theatre that will have tapping your feet and rolling in the aisles.
Whatever it is you feel like, you’ll find Gateway has it all!
