Lounge
If you want the perfect compliment to your Magic Mike Live experience, book a table at our new lounge ‘Permission.’ With lite bites, hand-crafted cocktails and live music curated by Magic Mike, there’s really no reason to go anywhere else. Bookings before the show get skip the line privileges into the theater. Oh, and did we mention our cast loves to hang out in the lounge post-show?

Permission is only for those over 18. If you are fortunate enough to look under 25 please ensure you bring a physical photo ID, either a passport or full driving licence.

    An unbelievable night celebrating my daughters 21st at Magic Mike, our waiter Jamie could not have done enough to ensure the night went well. A credit to the hippodrome. Oh Magic Mike wasn't too bad either (let's just leave it at that)... 110% recommend Permission and will be back!

    Regular Boozy Tea room user disappointed after booking a table for 4 for Sunday and order taken. Was then told the normal menu isn't on offer because of the American football on in Lolas an American menu was the only thing we could order from. I'm sure everything on the menu would have been nice but not what i wanted to order. Went elsewhere.

    Unfortunately I was accidentally served chicken instead of vegetable noodles and as I thought it was a large mushroom, I actually put meat in my mouth for the first time in 35 years, so it wasn’t a great memory, but the server was very apologetic, although I think they could have offered a complimentary drink or desert, but I thing forthcoming.. It is a lovely venue though and perfect to meet up with friends.

    Amazing staff and outstanding food, I was expecting to pay a price that was at least double the amount that I payed considering how great the service was. The food was just perfect, there’s no other way to describe it. I’d recommend it to everyone I know!!

    Though I booked a reserved table and inside was completely empty was put on the table by the open fire. Slightly disappointing when there was nobody else on the inside of the boozy tea room which is the reason I booked the table. Food was as good as always

    Might have gone a little early to this part of the casino as it was very quiet but the music was great. The service was slow but I put this down to the fact we ordered cocktails that might take longer to make. Overall it was okay, but might be better the later you go.
