The Casino went on to be regularly renovated, modified and redecorated over the years and from one generation to another further enhancing its reputation for enjoyment and relaxation. However, the last renovation dating from 1988 took great pains to preserve its treasures, including its stained-glass windows, charming theatre and, above all, magnificent dome decorated with sumptuous Salviati mosaics.
With its gambling tables and 222 slot machines, the Casino Grand Cercle boasts one of the largest fleets of gambling equipment in France. It is also a venue for numerous musical and theatrical performances, one-man shows and, of course, poker tournaments… The building also houses the “Brasserie du Casino” serving typical French cuisine. The Casino is open to visitors.
