A "luxury" new casino is set to open in Manchester, bringing 120 jobs to the city when it launches on September 24.
The £8m Napoleons Casino & Restaurant will open its doors on Portland Street complete with a "luxurious" private dining room, restaurant, and cocktail bar overlooking the gaming area.
The project for the 1,450sq m venue has been led by A&S Leisure Group in partnership with Chapman Taylor and contractor ISG, promising a "modern twist on the classic casino environment".
Tim Harvey, regional director at ISG, said: “Napoleons Casino & Restaurant is driving the gaming industry in Manchester, combining high-end facilities and luxurious interiors in a venue which is set to become a leading attraction to the city’s many visitors.
"The seamless completion of this project is testament to the strong working relationships developed.
"The A&S Leisure Group had an in-depth understanding of the fit out process, and we worked closely to deliver this modern, stylish casino.”
"It has been very enjoyable to collaborate with A&S Leisure and ISG and to see our design come to life so successfully.”
According to A&S Leisure group, the project has been years in the making - and marks a return to Manchester for chairman Dave Allen, who when he was younger regularly performed in the city with his band at the Ritz Ballroom on Oxford Street - before moving on to the business of nightclubs and casinos.
Steve Doran, contracts director for Gariff, ISG's sub-contractor for bespoke joinery on the scheme, said: “Napoleons Casino & Restaurant presented a unique opportunity for ourselves and a mix of local partners, to bring an all new state-of-the-art gaming facility to the streets of Manchester.
"Being a local supplier ourselves, it has been an honour to collaborate and work as part of a truly enigmatic team, led by ISG, to contribute to this stunning finished article.”
