The Grand Casino in Southport is set to be brought back to life

One of Southport’s most iconic landmarks, The Grand Casino, sitting proudly on Lord Street is set to be brought back to its former glory by The Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Group, creating more than 100 jobs.

The building which, of recent, has fallen into disrepair, was reconstructed as The Grand Cinema in 1938, formerly Richard Woodhead’s car Showroom dating from 1923 will be brought back to life by Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Group.

Andrew Mikhail, Chairman of Mikhail Hotel & Leisure Group, said of this exciting venture: “Bringing fabulous buildings back to life is such a rewarding feeling and a building as stunning as The Grand Casino deserves to be enjoyed by the people of Southport and beyond.

The Grand is both Southport and Lord Street’s jewel in the crown.” He adds, “It was a sensible decision having already invested millions into our current developments in Southport’s Northern Quarter.”

The Group already own some of Southport’s most striking and favourite venues including The Bold Hotel, Lord Street Hotel, Punch Tarmey’s Irish Pub, Lord Street Sports Bar and is also the operator of the fabulous new development at Southport Market.

Andrew continues, “The plan is to create much needed 5 Star Hotel rooms, a wedding venue, Southport’s very own Brewery and a new and exciting fun themed bar for all age groups incorporating entertainment for families during the day with a wide variety of gaming, pool-tables, shuffle boards, golf and football simulators, tenpin bowling, darts plus much more. After 9pm each evening, the venue will be strictly for over 18s only, making The Grand the perfect place for a date night or a fun night out with friends”.

At the rear of The Grand we will see a much needed car park for Lord Street’s Northern Quarter.

The Mikhail Group don’t just stop there, they have eager ambitions in bringing to Southport one of Europe’s largest Sky Bars.

Andrew Mikhail goes on to say: “I can’t thank Sefton Council enough, especially Stuart Barnes and his teams, for all their help in achieving the first two phases of investment which has given me the confidence to carry on and we are looking forward to sitting down with all the relevant parties at Sefton Council and getting this final and largest phase over the line.

“These are very exciBng Bmes for Southport town centre again.”
