In Pictures, Emalaydini Tavern underage children pictures get Mzansi outraged, everything you need to know about the viral spot.


Emalaydini Tavern, a Gqeberha (formerly known as Port Elizabeth) based recreational facility, took Mzansi by storm and set tongues wagging after social media pictures went viral. Emalaydini hogged the headlines for allowing underage children on New Year’s Eve.

Where is Emalaydini Tavern located?

Having opened its doors in November 2018, Emalaydini tavern is located at Number 17 Zinyoka, Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth). It started as an average hideout to have refreshments and relax till they introduced famous Djs and celebrity nights.

Underage children spotted in the Tavern.

The tavern management angered Mzansi after images showing a score of underage children at the tavern drinking alcoholic beverages. According to South African law, businesses cannot sell alcohol to children under 18 years. The tavern management responded to critics by removing the images of underage children from their Facebook page and issued an apology.

Their apology revealed that the New Year’s Eve event was a free entrance meant to give back to the community, and security details failed to control the crowd.

To whom it may concern

We want to release this statement and extend our apologies to the families offended by the event we recently had here at Emalaydini Tavern.


Firstly the purpose of the event was to give back to our community and a free New Years Eve Entrance event; we have bouncers at the tavern, and underage people are not allowed in the tavern. However, we acknowledge the pictures posted by our Events manager, and we apologize.


I write this statement with a heavy heart because I am a parent, and looking at how things turned out tarnished the event’s purpose.


Moving forward, we will be removing images on our page that shouldn’t be on our page and of underage people whom we are not quite sure how they ended up at the tavern. However, I’m sure everyone was in a jolly New Years Eve mood that led to such.


Our humble apologies


Emalaydini Tavern Management
