Plans Unveiled to Transform Iconic Brighton Landmark into £5.2m Entertainment Hub


Tuesday 27 August: Grosvenor Casinos has today unveiled its exciting vision to transform the former Art Deco cinema on Grand Junction Road into a 24/7 entertainment hub.

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.

Construction is now underway at the £5.2 million venue which will be set over three floors. Pier Nine has been designed for modern work, rest and play and will include space to work and meet with friends and colleagues, stylish bars, modern eateries, two classic casinos, a variety of fun and competitive socialising games, as well as a private cinema and karaoke space to hire. 

Bob Bowry, General Manager of Grosvenor Casino Brighton said: “We’re excited to share our vision for Pier Nine with the Brighton community and our existing customers which once complete will bring a unique social experience to the city’s vibrant cultural scene.

“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.

Pier Nine will be a 24/7 venue for work, rest and play and will be open to everyone who enjoys a vibrant atmosphere without the need for membership fees. 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 set to complete this December with an official launch in early 2020. The project will create 60 jobs and will offer applicants a mixture of full time and part time roles once complete.  Grosvenor Casino Brighton will remain operational throughout the refurbishment.
