London Hippodrome to host new casino

Tuesday, 4 November 2008

A £15 million investment will see the Grade II listed building in Central London restored back to its former glory updating it with entertainment and dining facilities. Following the renovation, it will be re-launched in late 2010 to meet the demand for London’s first ever leisure casino, dining and entertainment venue - we like those.

The Hippodrome Casino will house a restaurant on the first floor balcony, as well as a Piano Bar and a dedicated cabaret area seating 150 in front of the new beautiful stage which will once again see first class cabaret and famous names back at the Hippodrome. The casino area will be on the ground floor, with 20 gaming tables spaciously arranged under the 60ft atrium and the Minstrels gallery high above. In the basement, there will be a dedicated poker room as well as a large members’ sports bar and lounge, which will also be available for private parties, film premieres, product launches and much more.

Simon Thomas, Chairman of Hippodrome Casino ltd, adds: ‘The Hippodrome will offer a modern multi-purpose leisure casino where Londoners and tourists can go for a whole night’s entertainment and enjoy fabulous live cabaret, a state of the art casino, a gastronomic restaurant in spacious luxurious surroundings and much more, something not available in any casino in London. When tourists come to London they will once again go home saying “…and we visited the famous London Hippodrome!”’
