Hippodrome: "Hippodrome at Leicester Square" London Nightlife Tip by redhotwax

London Nightlife: 1,220 reviews and 1,286 photos

Well.. what can you say about the 'world famous' Hippodrome? I would say it's a place you'd want to avoid!

Overpriced cover charge, we paid 14 pounds to get in and another 2 for the coat check. And that's just getting in! The drinks are massively overpriced, at about 6 pounds for a bottle of beer. The music choice is most fitting for 16 year olds, and that's pretty much the crowd you'll find! Very young crowd, at least it was on the Saturday night we visited.

Try Fabric instead, especially if you're over 18.

Dress Code: Dress code seems to be slightly trendy/casual. Seems like an easy going door policy, as long as you're not boozed up and/or annoying, or incredibely bad dressed.

Address: Leicester Square
Theme: Nightclub
