Grosvenor Sheffield to create £1.5m innovative club experience


Grosvenor Casino Sheffield is investing more than £1.5million to become the most innovative gaming and entertainment destination in South Yorkshire.

Construction is underway to transform the Duchess Road club which once complete will be the only casino outside of London to offer an exhilarating range of new interactive gaming experiences.

Set to launch this summer, the major refurbishment will see the creation of state-of-the-art electronic gaming with an Interblock Arena, an exciting new sports bar and lounge sponsored by Rich Energy with a five metre HD TV wall screen, a sophisticated poker room as well as a stylish new restaurant and range of delicious menus.

Taking place over an ten-week period, Grosvenor Casino Sheffield expects the refurbishment to attract new audiences to the club and will create 25 jobs which offer applicants a mixture of full time and part time roles.
