London is a wonderful city which attracts around 30 million people around the world every year, making it one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet. There’s so much to see and do there. 

Superb restaurants, football matches, iconic sights, endless entertainment and arts offerings, an abundance of different cultures and thousands of warm, cosy pubs are just some of the things England’s capital city has to offer, alongside its impressive array of casinos for those of you who wish to turn the online video poker games into reality and test yourself against some of London’s best players. Casinos are fun places to visit and although London can’t compete with the likes of Las Vegas when it comes to its sheer number of casinos, it can compete with it in terms of the quality and overall feel of them. 

So, with that in mind, we thought we’d highlight some of the best casinos in London which you simply have to visit if you ever get the chance.  

Hippodrome Casino 

Located in the iconic Leicester Square, Hippodrome Casino is one of London’s most historic venues, with punters flocking to it for more than 100 years. It has a 180-seat theatre hosting a superb mixture of jazz, swing, soul, burlesque and cabaret, amongst a whole host of other genres. It also has six bars which accompany the all-important three floors of casino table games and slots. 

Grosvenor St Giles 

The Grosvenor St Giles is not only perfect for a flutter on some various casino games, but it also serves up delicious food and a selection of mouthwatering cocktails. A modern casino with incredibly attractive decor, the Grosvenor St Giles is located right next to the St Giles Hotel. You can’t miss it, really. 

The Palm Beach Casino 

Don’t let the name fool you, we are indeed still talking about London here. The Palm Beach Casino will give you a taste of luxury, all right. With its international-inspired cocktails in the Berkeley St Bar, Arabian themed nights which include belly dancing and a DJ, in addition to its street-food-style grub, this Mayfair casino is one of the best around.  

Empire Casino

A more down to earth, casual offering, Empire Casino is located in Leicester Square and features sports games on wall-to-wall giant screens, a Carlsberg sports bar, an Asian fusion restaurant and, of course, endless casino table games and slots. If you lose the will to game, you can dance the night away with a DJ set that lasts until 3am every Friday and Saturday night.

The Colony Club 

One of the most exclusive establishments in the city of London, The Colony Club is located in the wealthy area of Park Lane and serves up seasonal cocktails, a delicious meal from the global restaurant menu and – of course – an abundance of gaming options. A highly sophisticated and glamorous venue, The Colony Club is a real treat.

The Barracuda London

This Baker Street casino offers French, Arabic, Indian and Chinese cuisine in its restaurant which is open for 24-hours, alongside its sophisticated cocktails available from the bar. You certainly don’t need to be a high roller to rock up at this casino, which is perhaps a quality many other casinos around the world lack. If you’re after good, honest fun, then The Barracuda London is for you. 

Grosvenor Casino Rialto Piccadilly 

Housed in a Grade II-listed former Rialto cinema, the Grosvenor Casino Rialto Piccadilly has a beautiful bar which overlooks Leicester Square and a spectacular wrap-around bar which overlooks the casino floor. It really is a truly unique casino.
