Land-based casinos have had to overcome a number of obstacles in recent years.

It’s not just unprecedented global situations that land based casinos have struggled with too ─ the competition from the online sector has been a major challenge as well.

Prior to 2020 huge swathes of people were opting to spend their money at an online at a casino rather than brick-and-mortar venues. With 18 months spent inside that trend has been accelerated, leaving land-based casinos needing to try harder than ever before to attract business.

One way to get more players into their casinos is by offering enticing entertainment options ─ like a great cocktail menu. In this article we take a look at the casinos offering the best Manhattans, Long Island Iced Teas and Negronis.

The Hippodrome Casino

Where? Cranbourn Street, London, England

In the shadow of the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace sits the Hippodrome Casino, the largest and perhaps most popular casino in the UK.

The venue first opened its doors in 1900 to rave reviews from the local and national press who dubbed it ‘Britain’s premier entertainment venue’. Throughout the decades the Hippodrome hosted various plays and theatre productions and even hosted Harry Houdini.

In the late noughties the venue rebranded briefly as a nightclub under the stewardship of Peter Stringfellow before, on 13th July 2012, it was transformed into a casino. Over the course of the following years it has gone on to establish itself as the best in the country.

It’s away from the gaming tables that the Hippodrome excels though. As well as having three floors of gaming and a dedicated poker hall, the venue also boasts and award-winning steak house and a number of bars, in which you can sample the sumptuous cocktail menu.

Known around the capital as one of the best places to sip cocktails, the menu has all the staples you’d expect from a reputable bar. The highlights though are the Make Me Blush cocktail that has a delicious lychee leader and the Strawberry Cupcake that comes alive with strawberry puree and the unexpected hit of fresh mint.
