This plush Portland Street venue is reopening for world-class dining, drinks and gaming

Napoleons Casino & Restaurant offers a night out that's all-inclusive - fun, music, drinks and dining all under one roof

Napoleons Casino & Restaurant opened last autumn on Portland Street, following an £8 million investment.

Sadly the plush new venue had to close soon after opening in line with lockdown restrictions – but soon it will be back, and it’s a top choice for the big night out we’ve all missed so much.

As well as state-of-the-art gaming, the elegant venue, combining high-end facilities and luxurious detailing throughout, also has a stunning restaurant and a beautiful curved gold cocktail bar which provides a striking focal point.

The bar menu is dressed to impress – from an extensive list of wines and spirits to creative cocktails.

The restaurant, which features plush green booth seating and marble tables down one wall, overlooks the gaming area so you can keep an eye on the action.

A luxurious dining experience boasting at-seat hospitality, it’s all part of a night out that’s all-inclusive – fun, music, drinks and dining all under one roof.

From, roasted rack of lamb with seared Provencal vegetables, crispy sage and tomato jus or butternut squash risotto cake with spiced chargrilled halloumi, toasted hazelnuts, peas and harissa yoghurt, to a Wagyu burger on a pretzel bun, there’s something for everyone – and you can book online.

Or if it’s casual dining you have planned, you’ll want to check out their bar food deals, including three small plates for just £10 – perfect for sharing.

Choices include the likes of Moroccan style lamb koftas with mint yoghurt, tempura king prawns with coconut and coriander crème fraiche, crispy salt and pepper squid with sriracha sauce, or crisp golden garlic mushroom and shallot arancini with spiced tomato pesto.

There’s also crispy spiced chicken wings with BBQ sauce, mini duck and hoisin spring rolls, and classic warm nachos topped with melted cheese, jalapeños and salsa with guacamole and sour cream.

It’s all part of the first class hospitality experience, whether you want a full three-course meal or just some snacks and a cocktail.

And, of course, they offer visitors the ultimate in casino tables and Vegas favourites, from roulette wheels to card tables and slots.

The Napoleons team has made a few changes to their casino experience to help adjust to social distancing rules. For example, the £5 bet as part of the Dine in Style package is currently available as a £5 slots voucher, and they’ve also launched a 3Bs package – from just £12 per head, you can enjoy a beer, a burger and a slots bet (value £5). 

They’ve been working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that they can provide a safe, fun experience for all of their guests – and we can’t wait to be back for the ultimate night out.

Napoleons Casino & Restaurant at 57 Portland Street is planning to open on 17th May in line with government restrictions easing. Because of some of the content of this page, it is our duty to remind you to be gamble aware. For more information please visit
