Maybury Casino

A prominent B-listed building situated at the Maybury road junction in W Edinburgh, 1¼ miles (2 km) west of Corstorphine, the Maybury Casino (Gala Maybury Casino later the Grosvenor Maybury Casino) is one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in the city. Built as the Maybury Roadhouse and Diner in 1935, by architects William Patterson and James Broom, the white-painted building features black windows forming distinctive vertical and horizontal lines. It was intended as an attraction on the edge of the city for a car-owning middle class. Gifford, McWilliam and Walker, in The Buildings of Scotland (1991), describe the interior as "a ghastly memorial to inter-war taste". It was converted into a casino in the late 1990s.
