IT’S the high-class venue for a stylish Saturday night out – and it reopens on July 24th.
The Embassy Grand Cafe and Late Lounge in Eastbourne Town Centre – owned by Gino Forte, 36 – is something very special.
It’s what he calls ‘the premium offer’ for that extra special Saturday evening, open from 10.30pm until 4am.
The amazing venue is on two floors with the VIP area upstairs. Capacity – reached every week – is around 400 and the emphasis is on content.
“It is a high end, luxury, selective nightclub, and we make the ‘night out of the week’ a very special one.
“We have a variety of DJs from London as content is so important to me”
“We invest heavily in premium live acts, US superstar Jason Derulo being one example, and we combine live PAs with exciting extras such as fire breathers and aerial artists”
“Our music is Urban and Commercial led, including R&B and Hip Hop.”
Gino bought the property on Pevensey Road in 2016 and opened The Embassy in 2017 after investing heavily into the venture. Lockdown means it had been closed since March 2020.
Clients have a choice of buying Standard admission or pay the extra to be upstairs in the VIP area which is served by its own VIP bar, dedicated hostess table service, with tables for up to 10 and an exclusive smoking terrace.
Gino says: “The Embassy is non-price sensitive because of what we offer here every Saturday evening.
“It may be on two floors but it’s also very intimate as well. Our people just love it and keep coming back.
“I went to St Andrew’s School and Eastbourne College, and I can always remember sitting on the school bus thinking ‘what’s that place all about’ as I passed.
“Well now I know what it’s all about, and I couldn’t be prouder.”
