There's plenty of history to this famous Leicester Square spot - more than 110 years of it, in fact. Its oft-illustrious past includes performances from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Dusty Springfield and Judy Garland. It was also once owned by Peter Stringfellow. Still, you can't have everything.
Today, it proves a West End draw. The three-floor casino offers electronic games and slots, plus table gaming including roulette, blackjack, baccarat, pai gow, three card poker and dice. In addition to the gaming there's Heliot Steak House and an entertainment space - Hippodrome Live - hosting live music, cabaret, magic and more.

Blanc De Blanc
Don’t be fooled: while there is some circus in here, ‘Blanc de Blanc’ is more burlesque than big top. This show, with its spray of nudity, revels in the single entrende, the filthiness of a popping Champagne cork. With choreography by Kevin Maher, who...Circuses Until Sunday August 28 2016Read more

I'm almost not keen to write a review on the Hippodrome as it's my secret 'weapon' when I have friends visiting. It's always spotlessly clean, has different areas to either gamble or just have a drink, live bands, beautiful dancing showgirls any my all time favorite indoor but outdoors patio. Unfortunately they no longer do the hubbly bubbly (water pipes) on the patio but I'm hoping they bring them back soon!!
An absolute gem in Leicester Square, housed in beautiful building. Fantastic that you do not need to register with a passport etc. Just turn up (over 18) and have some fun in the casino or on the slots; suiting all budgets. The intimate cabaret room offers various acts and live music. Also offering great food at reasonable prices including the Heliot steakhouse with the added benefit of a trendy cocktail bar / lounge bars. If you are stretched there are plenty of cheap eats in the vicinity beforehand.
Not forgetting all the wonderful helpful staff!
Great place for everyone over 18! If you love a flutter, its all here under one roof, from low min machines and tables to the very serious PokerStars level. The building is stunning, great place for dinner, a show and cocktails. I've been there loads, sometimes I play some BlackJack sometimes I don't gamble at all!
