Promos & Events
Rendezvous Casino Southend offers everything you need for a great night out all under the same roof. Along with their wide assortment of table games, slots, and dedicated poker lounge the venue also boasts regular live entertainment every weekend. Customers can also enjoy a meal at Elements Restaurant where you can expect fantastic food for great prices.
The only real downside is that their poker tournaments only take place twice a week. Still, the spacious venue certainly gives Grosvenor and Genting a run for their money and in our opinion is well worth checking out!
