Grosvenor Casinos have unveiled their plans to transform previous club venue, The Haunt, into a 24/7 entertainment hub.

A press release announced the company was excited to transform the former Art Deco cinema on Grand Junction Road into a 24/7 entertainment hub.

It said: “The venue which will be known as Pier Nine will renovate the existing Grosvenor Casino Brighton into a vibrant leisure, entertainment and gaming destination located on the city’s buzzing sea front.”

The renovation, which will create sixty jobs, is expected to cost £5.2 million and construction is currently underway.

Set over three floors, the new Grosvenor Casino pledges in the statement, released Tuesday August 26, to have been designed for modern work, rest and play in mind with space to work and meet friends or colleagues in stylish bars and modern eateries, offering fun and competitive socializing games, as well as a private cinema and karaoke space to hire.

Bob Bowry, General Manager of Grosvenor Casino Brighton said: “This is a major investment in a well-loved building on the sea front, creating new jobs in the local leisure and entertainment sector as well as a destination for the changing habits of those in search of memorable experiences under one roof.”

“The variety of fantastic food and drink on offer, as well as retro gaming and the excitement of traditional casino games will make Pier Nine a leisure and entertainment destination for all to enjoy.”

Work on Pier Nine is expected to finish in December this year with an official launch planned for early 2020.

The casino will remain open throughout construction and urges customers to gamble responsibly.
