1. Fox Poker Club 93-107 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 5DY (Soho)

After purchasing one of the costly casino licenses first made legal in 2005, Fox bravely decided to eschew other more profitable games and focus only on cards; inspired by the unrepentant gambling of 18th century politician Charles Fox, the spacious, low-lit parlour boasts 20 tables with views overlooking Chinatown, plus a memorabilia-stocked library, whose science wing might reveal just how those dogs played without opposable thumbs.
