1. The London Hippodrome

For gambling enthusiasts, there is no physical casino establishment located in the capital of the United Kingdom quite like the London Hippodrome. Although many have been able to enjoy using a live casino in the UK, there is no doubt that this venue provides an experience that is unlike any other.

There are over five floors in this building, which house a total of three different casinos where players can enjoy a range of different games, including slots and table games. The casinos available are the ground-floor Grand Casino, Lola’s, and The Craybourn Club.

First opened as a music hall in 1900, it has also been a nightclub as well as a gambling venue, whilst it still features a 325-seat theatre and a top-class restaurant.

2. Fabric

Perhaps one of the biggest clubs in the world given its reputation, London is home to the iconic Fabric nightclub. Indeed, this is certainly one of the best nightlife hotspots to hit up in the capital when the city is being visited.

Opened in 1999, it features the best in drum and bass, dubstep, house, and techno music, and whilst that may not appeal to everyone as their cup of tea, there is no doubt that it would be an experience that would be hard to match elsewhere.
