Grosvenor Casino Hill Street 84 Hill Street
Grosvenor opened a second Birmingham casino in 2012 on the site of the former Gala Casino on Hill Street. After extensive refurbishments, this has quickly established itself as one of the best casinos in the West Midlands, offering blackjack, roulette and poker. Its 150-seat poker room also boasts a private room, which has hosted high profile professional poker tournaments. Poker tournaments are held daily, with monthly special events advertised in advance online. There’s also a grill restaurant, bar and smoking terrace.
Broadway Casino 1-4 Broadway Plaza
Situated in a listed building in the heart of Birmingham, Broadway is the largest casino in the city and the most popular independent casino. It’s a part of the Broadway leisure complex, which also consists of a bowling alley, multiplex cinema and several chain restaurants. The casino provides the usual range of games – including roulette and blackjack – but its main claim to fame is as one of the best poker destinations outside of London. The poker room can hold 120 players and hosts nightly tournaments. The feel is that of a major American casino and the restaurant is a cut above most others of its ilk.
