Belgian casino group Ardent will open the Circus Club in Paris having received a licence from the Minister of the Interior.
The Circus Club will be located on Murat Boulevard. The opening date of this second Parisian club has not been decided yet. Circus is the commercial brand of Ardent Group in France which already operates three casinos under this name. The Circus Club’s file had been examined at the meeting of the Advisory Committee on Circles and Casino Games (CCJCC) back in April. The operator requested permission to operate 31 gaming tables, 18 Texas hold’em poker and Omaha poker, 2 stud poker, 4 Punto Banco, 1 hold’em poker casino, two Ultimate poker, one poker three cards and finally three Poker 21 tables. It will employ 100 people within the club.
Tranchant group opened Paris Elysees Club with 30 gaming tables on April 26 but Raineau who wanted to open the Imperial Club had its plan rejected.
The Barrière Club will open 33 tables at Fouquet’s on the Champs-Elysées, in the former premises of the well-known Parisian circle, the Aviation Club de France, which has been closed since September 2014.
