Billiard rooms. 1810-1824. Stucco. Roof obscured by parapet. One storey over basement. The elevation is symmetrical about a broad, round-arched entrance. There is a flat-arched, tripartite window to either side. Greek Revival Style. The entrance has a keystone and a panelled lintel with fanlight above. Its jambs are rebated and given a quarter-round chamfer. The aedicule surrounding the entrance consists of a pair of Tuscan pilasters with incised key panels. An identical pilaster can be found at each party wall. The wall surface running between pilasters and windows is rendered as banded rustication. The windows have a moulded sill band, which has been interrupted on the right by the insertion of a broad entrance of C20 date. Across the top of the elevation runs a broad entablature which sets forward above each pilaster; each of these projecting imposts is ornamented with a single laurel wreath. INTERIOR: not inspected. By 1824 this was one of 4 billiard rooms in Brighton. Between 1920 and 1927 it served as the Brighton Boys' Club.
