To try your luck: Grosvenor Casino 

If you are looking for an evening which is relaxing but still gives a buzz, a trip to the Grosvenor Casino might be on your cards. Situated opposite the palace pier, the Grosvenor is jam packed with a variety of different card games to try your luck on. If you don’t fancy betting, you can always enjoy a meal in their restaurant, a cocktail at their bar or watch some sports in their entertainment lounge.

A night at the casino can be great fun and a great alternative to clubbing in Brighton. But please remember to gamble sensibly, bet what you can lose without getting yourself in financial difficulty. On a positive note – may the luck be on your side and you win!

  1. Hi, I visited Brighton in 2011 for a Hen-Do and have waited to go back ever since. Great night out and place to visit. We went to Lucky Voice and it was such a fun experience with friends. I’ve wanted to go to another Lucky Voice ever since but it seems I’m more of a karaoke fan than most people I know
