Monte-Carlo casino group Société des Bains de Mer has inaugurated a new Place du Casino alongside the re-opening of the iconic Brasserie du Café de Paris Monte-Carlo, which was closed during the health crisis.
The famous circular grass bank of Casino Square is gone, replaced with a multi-functional concrete square. The restructuring of the Boulingrins Gardens has taken it back to the landscaping aesthetics they enjoyed in the 1930s.The operator said the ambition behind this plan is to make Monte-Carlo Societé des Bains de Mer the most exclusive destination in Europe.
Keeping up with initiatives in large cities around the world while retaining its own unique characteristics, the new Place du Casino is structured around three objectives. Firstly it aims to give pedestrians priority and allow people to stroll around in complete serenity and safety. The second aim is to preserve the race course of the famous Formula 1 Grand Prix . Finally it aims to address comments from the Monte-Carlo Société Group’s VIP customers, whose vehicles, which are often exceptional, can be parked in the square. A stage where life in Monaco unfolds, the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo also enjoys a double celebration as the first establishment in the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group to re-open its doors on June 2 2020.
The event was attended by H.S.H. Prince Albert II and Princess Charlène, de H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie and Her children, Camille Gottlieb and Pauline Ducruet, Mr and Miss Louis Ducruet, Mr and Miss Andrea Casiraghi, Mr Pierre Casiraghi, Mr Gareth Wittstock and monegasque authorities.
The gaming rooms at Casino de MonteCarlo and Casino Café de Paris reopened on June 5. Gaming floors have a new customer path, a reorganisation of the rooms, tables and machines. Restaurants and bars have had to change their layout and the way they welcome customers.
Jean-Luc Biamonti, Chief Executive Officer of Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer Group said: “The resumption of our gaming, hotel, restaurant, well-being, shopping and entertainment activities is a longawaited moment for the Group. Our absolute priority is the health and safety of our customers and our employees. For the most exclusive destination in Europe to also be the safest, we have taken all necessary measures, in compliance with government directives, for the serenity of our customers.”
