SUMMERTIME AND THE LIVING IS EASY AT FAIRWAY HOTEL’S ACOUSTIC SATURDAYS.

The Fairway Hotel calls their Cosmopolitan “Sex in the city, in a glass”.   For those in the know, this  claim to fame can only be enhanced by the live afternoon acoustic sounds planned for every first Saturday  of the month, starting in September, from 13:00 to 16:00.

Enjoy the relaxed sounds while savouring the golf course view along with a light lunch and drinks at Roundabout Bar. Justin Serrao  will be performing September, October and November. He may even bring a friend or two to do some duo songs. Lost & Found – a new and exciting Folk Rock duo consisting of Glen from the Parlotones and Jason from Van Coke Kartel and Black Cat Bones, will be performing in December.

Entrance is free for all, but bookings are essential to guarantee a table – bookings to please be directed to Balata Restaurant.
