Dave Allen, chairman of The A&S Leisure Group, blamed Ecclesall Road being 'not what it used to be' when he announced the closure of the casino.
He said: "“After 42 years at Ecclesall Road it is a sad day, but time moves on and Ecclesall Road is not what it used to be.
"We’d like to thank everyone for their patronage over the years and do hope people will continue to enjoy the Napoleons experience at Napoleons Owlerton in Sheffield.
“We are also sorry to hear that Dave Baldwin is bringing his era to an end this year, when Baldwin’s Banqueting Suite will close in July.
"Over the years we have always seen a good deal of Baldwins’ business ending up in Napoleons and unfortunately that will no longer be the case.
“We must now look forward to the future and the exciting plans we have in place for the Owlerton and Manchester sites.”
