Chinatown's Four Seasons is to launch a new 'contemporary Chinese restaurant' this summer at The Hippodrome Casino in London's Leicester Square.

Chop Chop by Four Seasons will open on the lower ground floor of The Hippodrome in July, adding to the group's already large presence in the area.

The interiors, designed by Rachel O’Toole, will nod to old Hong Kong, with a menu featuring dishes such as Four Seasons’ renowned roast duck.

A selection of dim sum, including a range of vegan options, will also be available. 

“We are delighted to be partnering with The Hippodrome to bring our globally recognised Chinese food to a broader demographic within such a historic venue,” says Kwan Lam, chief executive of Four Seasons, which operates three restaurants in London's Chinatown as well as a further site in Bayswater. 

“The Hippodrome’s ethos perfectly matches our own and we are looking forward to a long and successful collaboration.”

Chop Chop by Four Seasons is one of three new dining and drinking concepts set to launch at The Hippodrome this year as part of a £3m investment by the casino that has seen it acquire an additional 2,400 sq ft space on Leicester Square’s Cranbourn Street.

Also confirmed to take up residence is café brand CrêpeAffaire, which will launch in July.

A third concept, described as 'a hidden subterranean cocktail bar', is expected to open later this year.

The Hippodrome says the acquisitions and redevelopment form part of its wider growth and lifestyle-focused strategy.

“The Hippodrome has long led the way in the casino landscape, and the next phase of our development strategy is focused on elevating our position as a competitive lifestyle brand by enhancing the guest experience,” says Simon Thomas, executive chairman of The Hippodrome.

“Entertainment and hospitality are at the center of everything we do at The Hippodrome, and we can’t wait to add these three new concepts to our already extensive hospitality offering. We’re delighted to be kicking off with the opening of CrêpeAffaire at The Hippodrome, and look forward to working closely with their creative team on this very exciting new project.”

As well as its restaurants in London, Four Seasons also operates a single venue in Leicester.
