Hippodrome Casino London Leicester Square

Hippodrome Casino London

Well its finally open, after many many months of refurbishment and  hype the Hippodrome Casino has opened its doors. It once was a destination,  a venue, probably iconic over its many years of history of famous people, household names who have either been or appeared there. Will todays modern day celebrities take to it as there local gaming haunt?. There certainly is enough space and rooms to be seen or not to be seen if you are of a more discerning nature. There is also the “LIVE AT” in the Hippodrome Casino, live shows which are small cosy and a rather personal affair with some rather spectacular performers. Wait there is more ! The Heliot Restaurant looks like it may well be worth a visit on its own and of course the building, lovingly and lavishly restored to its former glory. Some would say that more money has been spent resurrecting this magnificent building than makes financial sense, but you yourselves should be the judge of the results.I do like visiting the Hippodrome and well worth a visit

.The pleasure of Dining in The Heliot Restaurant in The Hippodrome Casino has not happened as yet but I definitely will as the choice looks appetising and tantalising.The only difficulty is firstly when as all to often dinner is rushed and I certainly do not want that to happen. London is a busy old town with lots to see and do,then once I do have enough time to enjoy what would one choose. I have had the pleasure of plenty of the snacky food they serve at gatherings and parties.
