Yes I love it, although we didn't gamble all night! A helpful security guard showed us to the small theatre as I'd won tickets to a Steve Brookstein concert from a local newspaper. The show was excellent even though I grew out of watching the X-Factor years ago. It's like a small, intimate cabaret theatre on the first floor of the casino.

Well, now the Hippodrome is all glitzy and glamourous! Ain't it!

3 floors and buzzing with energy. And they've tapped into the speakeasy trend ( down in the basement they have black and white film projections in the hallway. Scantily clad dancers with a 1920s style influence on their minimal clothing.

So, this place is quite a mix. Good fun and good times going on but it can also be very...more
