Napoleons Casino & Restaurant – Bradford Review
If you are a truly wonderful night out in Bradford, you will not be going wrong by paying a visit to the Napoleons Casino & Restaurant. A fantastic combination of casino action, live entertainment and superb food, you will not find many other places that can compete with the enjoyment experienced here.
As the only casino in Bradford, you can imagine that business is always good and that is certainly the case. On weekends especially, this casino & restaurant is packed with players, diners and others that are just there to enjoy a few drinks and some music.
Located at 37 Bolton Road and open 24/7 throughout the week, you will be able to enjoy table games such as Roulette, Blackjack and 3-Card Poker as well as electronic Roulette terminals, slot machines and a dedicated poker room that serves up regular cash games and tournaments.
NAPOLEONS CASINO & RESTAURANT GAMES
The gaming floor at the Napoleons Casino & Restaurant is far from the biggest that you will see at a casino. All in all, it delivers more than enough in terms of gaming options as you will be able to enjoy 8 live casino gaming tables, 14 slot machines and a selection of 22 state-of-the-art roulette terminals.
CASINO GAMING OPTIONS:
- 4 Tables of American Roulette (50p – £50)
- 3 tables of Blackjack (£1 – £500)
- A table of Three Card Poker (£2 – £100)
- 22 Roulette/Gaming Terminals (10p up to £20)
- £10,000 Jackpot Slot Machines
There is also a small poker room at Napoleons Casino & Restaurant which has four tables seating a maximum of ten players on each. This means that if you wanted to take part in their daily cash games from 10 pm or in their tournaments which are held six days a week, it might be best to phone in advance to book yourself a seat.
The official Napoleons website is where you will find the most up to date schedule of their upcoming tournaments across all their casinos in the UK.
NAPOLEONS CASINO & RESTAURANT DRESS CODE
Napoleons Casino & Restaurant in Bradford and at all of their venues, in fact, adopt a smart/casual dress code policy. Football shirts, sportswear, offensive tattoos and caps will be turned away at the door. Trainers and jeans will be allowed in as long as the person looks fairly smart.
It should also be noted that if you are fortunate enough to look 21-years of age or under, you will be asked for proof of age. This is just to ensure that nobody under the age of 18 manages to get inside the casino.
FOOD & BEVERAGES
What really makes the Napoleons Casino & Restaurant a really special night out is their superb restaurant. Seating as many as 120-guests at a time, for some, the restaurant alone is a big reason to come here.
Open from 6 pm for most of the week and at 8 pm on Sundays, guests will be able to enjoy the main menu from the restaurant until 10.30 pm. A late menu is then served afterward until 2.45 am each morning. Both menus are made up primarily of British favourites but when you consider the fantastic quality and even better prices, there really isn’t a better restaurant in Bradford right now.
Your menu will, of course, be accompanied by a drinks menu and you will have no trouble finding the wine, spirit, beer or cocktail that is your preference for washing down the tasty food you have been served. Additionally, the bar at the casino is open from 11 am to 4 am and will certainly ensure that you always have the ability to grab your favourite drinks when needed.
Live music and entertainment is something that Napoleons loves to provide for their visitors. Weekends, in particular, are always given an injection of entertainment to help players get in the mood whether that is via live music, comedy acts or karaoke nights.
One special event that they are currently running once a month is that of their Cabaret Dinners. For just £27 per person, you will get a 4-course meal, drink and a £5 gaming chip as well as being able to enjoy the scheduled tribute act. Boy George, Robbie Williams, Cher, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse are just some of the musicians that are paid tribute to here and from the reviews, we have read, many of these tribute acts really go down a storm.
