If you want a little romance with your roulette and the chance to enjoy some haute cuisine as you play the casino, the Hotel Barriere could be a contender for your chip stack.
Located in Lille in the north of France, the Hotel Barriere is a stunning modern hotel opposite the town’s train station. The casino is the largest in the region, boasting more than 300 slots and 20 gaming tables, including rarely seen La Boule.
If you’re a keen casino player and like collecting new and national games, La Boule is definitely one for your list. The game is a simplified version of Roulette. The wheel still features 36 slots but only the numbers 1-9 which repeat four times. It’s worth a spin but be wary of a generous house edge!
As you would expect, the dining options are extraordinary. For fine dining, Les Hauts de Lille, under the patronage of head chef Michel Vico, serves up seasonal dishes on its popular market menu.
Overlooking the adjacent Parc des Dondaines, is the Terrasse du Parc. The 200-capacity brasserie has both an a la carte menu and buffet option for the hungry player.
Drinking options are also varied: Le Carre is a multi-screen sports bar, Le Boreal is all about cocktails and dancing, Escal ‘777 is perfect for a quick drink, and the star of the show is L’Ibar with its touch sensitive, fully interactive, bar counter (touch the bar and flowers appear).
Lille is widely considered to be one of France’s most underrated cities. In recent decades, this old industrial town has reinvented itself and is now renowned for its green credentials, beautiful city centre, and fine dining. All this and a world class casino to boot. Allez!
