Since the smoking ban, that venerable London tradition of the cigar lounge is proving rather hard to come by. So, it’s always a boon to discover a new venue for your puffing pleasure. Welcome to the Red Room, the exclusive members’ club located beneath renowned casino, Les Ambassardeurs Club.
Open to a stagger-inducing 4am (or 6am by private appointment), there’s live music at the weekend, classic cocktails and a light international menu prepared by order by the Red Room’s chefs.
However, the real draw of membership is that no holes barred direct access to the casino’s spectacular open-air gaming and smoking terrace – the only one of its kind in the UK.
So for a gamble definitely worth taking, it’s time to get your name on the list!
