The hidden London gem

For those who like to dress up smart, eat some beautiful food and mingle with fun and friendly people there is a Garden of Eden for the combat sports fan hidden in Russel Square, London. The Grosvenor Casino in Russel Square has been a long time venue for those seeking to watch the UFC and big time boxing events.

Located in the heart of Bloomsbury, the venue has had huge success when showing live UFC events and recently was sold out for UFC 214 where Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier had their highly anticipated rematch.

Fans, celebrities and sporting journalists are among those who rub shoulders during one of these stunning events inside the Grosvenor. With not many places for the average combat fan to spend a night out watching the fight, this venue is the perfect place to enjoy a beer, burger and bet.

From the comfort of your couch or buzz of a venue where ever you choose to watch Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor fight, you will be in good hands.
