Replacing the iconic Grosvenor Casino on the seafront, Pier Nine will be a multistorey redevelopment with 24-hour bars, restaurants, work spaces, gaming areas and two casinos. Work on the £5.2 million project started earlier this month and is expected to continue until its launch in 2020.
In an effort to inject even more fun into the bustling Brighton area, Pier Nine will also feature social activities such as karaoke spaces and private cinemas without membership fees, so groups of after-work revellers and those celebrating special occasions can drop in whenever they please.
Leaders of the ambitious venture say the project will create over 60 new jobs for locals and, “bring a unique social experience to the city’s vibrant cultural scene”. For those hoping to make the most of the local landmark before it's transformed, you'll be pleased to hear The Grosvenor Casino will remain open throughout the refurbishment.
Pier Nine is expected to open early 2020 and will be located at 9 Grand Junction Road, Brighton BN1 1PP. It will be open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
