Openings & Launches

Palm Beach Bar & Kitchen

With the UK gaming laws having been relaxed to allow anyone casino access, we can expect a new raft of 24/7 dining options to accompany the international jet set lifestyle. Later this month, glamorous Mayfair gaming spot, The Palm Beach Casino, is launching The Palm Beach Bar & Kitchen. Open 24/7, food service starts at 7.30am for breakfast and finishes at 4am. Lunch and afternoon tea are more civilised affairs and after 5pm, the space evolves into an intimate lounge bar with a DJ playing laid back sounds alongside light bites of chicken satay, prawn tempura and mini baked potatoes.

The bar is open til 1am Mon-Thurs and til 3am at […]
