The Manchester venue’s owner is the American company that currently runs Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Manchester235 is probably the closest you can get to a Las Vegas experience when we look at the local casinos. It is, after all, owned by Caesars, which is one of the world’s biggest entertainment companies.
The casino currently employs around 221 staff in the Great Northern Warehouse, boasts a cocktail bar, a James Martin restaurant, multiple gaming floors as well as a dedicated poker lounge, and a luxurious multi-use private event suite. Not to mention that it is open non-stop.
It occupies approximately 60,000 square feet; this venue has become more and more successful with the revenue and staff numbers rise with 10%, and is currently capitalising on Manchester’s growing drinks and food scene.
Mark Hands, the venue director, who came over from Caesars’ Nottingham around one year ago, stated that when they opened approximately ten years ago, the location was great. However, only in the recent years started to come to fruition.
He added that down the road they have Albert’s Schloss, Revolucion de Cuba, and BeAT Street. Moreover, that kind of offering has created a city, which has a European party and drinking culture, as well as footfall. He continued saying that it is great because before many years the Great Northern itself was a void, the footfall through it was not good. However, that has changed now.
Moreover, its American owners, who are currently behind 50 casinos located around the world tend to keep an eye on what is going on in Manchester.
