Icon Balcony Bar

The Icon Balcony Bar is part of the Casino at the Empire complex. The candlelit cocktail lounge, with a balcony overlooking Leicester Square, is decorated in a style reminiscent of a French boudoir, with chandeliers, antique wallpaper, exposed brickwork and opulent crimson furnishings.

The bar has an eclectic drinks list including boutique beers from around the world, plus a decent wine selection. Classic cocktails also feature – think black russians, mojitos, cosmopolitans, Champagne cocktails and old fashioneds.

Icon Balcony Bar says it in the name. The bar boasts a nice balcony overlooking Leicester Square so you can take in the infectious atmosphere above the crowds. The bar is small, clean and a relaxed atmosphere. If you sign up to the casino reception to become a member you'll also receive a free drink voucher so you'll receive your first drink free of charge. If your in the area it's definitely worth a visit.
