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!
