The Venue

Eyadini Lounge is one of KwaZulu-Natal’s most popular hangout venues and arguably, an important tourism hotspot for the province.

It’s easily the first place that many of us want to visit and experience when on holiday in Durban with much of its popularity attributed to viral social media images of people walking into the venue.

Over 400 Amazing Blocks

The property that Eyadini Lounge is built on was previously a scrap yard and this is why he decided to call the venue Eyadini – which when directly translated simply means “at the yard”.

The Food

Whether it takes the form of a distinctive blend of spices to go with their meat cuts or a variety of scrumptious dishes, or music or security for patrons, outlets are sparing no effort to keep customers coming back and gain new ones.
