Les Ambassadeurs Club Mayfair

If you’re going to call your casino “Les Ambassadeurs Club”, you’ll need to ensure that the venue itself oozes the kind of prestige and grandeur that kind of name evokes. In the case of this venue in Mayfair, London – that aim has most certainly been achieved. A casino that attracts celebrities and royals through its doors, Les Ambassadeur Club is swathed in luxury from top to bottom – boasting a gaming room, private lounge, smoking garden, and even its very own exclusive library.

It’s one of the more beautiful casinos you’re ever likely to visit, although membership is extremely exclusive and the stakes on the gaming floor are very high. It’s a venue for the cultural elite and proud of it, and that certainly isn’t something that will necessarily appeal to everyone. Les Ambassadeur Club actually featured in the James Bond movie Dr No – and that kind of tells you everything you need to know about it.

The gaming also extends into the smoking garden too, offering the rare modern day luxury of allowing you to puff away on a cigarette or cigar whilst you play games of cards.

Poker

Three Card Poker is the only form of poker available on a regular basis at Les Ambassadeurs Club, although there are occasional tournaments held from time to time. The casino keeps this sort of information rather hushed in an attempt to retain an exclusive, private members-like atmosphere, so if you ever find yourself in the venue and wish to join a tournament, simply ask the very helpful staff at the reception area.

A gorgeous restaurant and outdoor terrace can be found within the confines of Les Ambassadeurs Club, serving up some succulent food cooked by some of the best chefs in the area. There’s a nice array of dishes from which to choose, with a range of specialist chefs cooking cuisines from around the world. The food on offer on our visit was simply divine and comparable to the best restaurants in the West End. The outdoor terrace is a wonderful place to sit when the weather’s good, offering remarkable views of Hyde Park and Park Lane.
