The casino now boasts a sophisticated décor of black and gold throughout, creating a modern, boutique feel and a stylish gaming environment for customers to enjoy.

Located at 45 Cromwell Road in the heart of South Kensington, and overlooking the Natural History Museum, Forty-Five Kensington has made significant improvement to its gaming offering. The main gaming floor has been fully refurbished and new tables have been added including Poker Blackjack and American Roulette.

As part of the venue’s makeover the newly expanded E-Lounge has welcomed 20 hi-tech slot machines and top of the range Hydra e-tables. Customers can enjoy a more personalised gaming experience in the E-Lounge thanks to the introduction of a slot host, who is on hand to support customers with any questions, queries or to help them learn how to play any of the extensive range of electronic games on offer.

For those customers wanting to game away from the main floor, the venue has added a separate high stakes gaming room, The Queensberry Room. This room is suitable for guests looking for a more tailored player experience and there will be American Roulette, Blackjack and Baccarat on offer.

The large and spacious room has large bay windows at the front of the room that allows natural light in during the day giving the room a bright and inviting feel.

As part of the new venues focus on hospitality, Forty-Five Kensington’s restaurant and bar have also received a full makeover. Situated away from the gaming floor, the restaurant offers an a la carte menu with a truly cosmopolitan feel and the bar serves a wide and varied range of wines, gins, whiskies, cocktails and soft drinks.

Gary Moore, Director at Forty Five Kensington said: “The high-end casino market is extremely competitive and our customers want a premium venue to enjoy a premium experience, without losing that personal touch.

“The new Forty Five Kensington delivers just that. Whether customers want to enjoy our high-quality gaming, or if they want to enjoy the tastes of our a la carte menu, or relax in our newly created bar, Forty Five Kensington has something everyone will enjoy.”
