Nearly 160 Years of History

In fact, the official name for the building is Casino de Monte-Carlo. It’s actually an entertainment complex that includes a Ballet and an Opera! When it was built, in the 1850s and at the orders of the royal family, the building was actually quite an odd bet. In fact, the lack of roads and proper infrastructure in Monaco at the time didn’t promise much success for this venture. Yet, the casino eventually began to turn a profit. Then, it finally saw a major improvement with the takeover of François Blanc.

Today, the Monte Carlo casino is a part of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, founded by Blanc himself. They own several hotels, restaurants and casinos in Monaco. Some, like the iconic Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and the Hermitage Monte-Carlo, are right at the Place du Casino. However, some of them are seaside venues like The Monte-Carlo Beach or The Monte-Carlo Beach Resort.

Moreover, the Casino de Monte-Carlo is still one of the primary sources of income for both Grimaldi royal family and the entire Monaco economy!
