Address: 5 Hamilton Pl, W1J 7ED

Set Up:

Sean Connery is introduced to the world as James Bond at the Chemin De Fer table in Dr No. (1962).

Les Ambassadeurs Casino – The interiors were filmed at Pinewood due to budget constraints, but the set was modeled on the casino in the club itself. I asked the doorman whilst taking the photo if they really filmed Dr No inside, and he replied ‘yes they filmed inside’.

This conflicts with every other version I’ve heard surrounding this location. I have emailed the club for more info although they haven’t responded.

Note on Les Ambassadeurs:

They have various photos of the film Dr. No peppered around the private members club. Alas when I was there for an event with Mason & Sons, I neglected to take any photos. I welcome any contributions to this post with either information or photos from inside to publish here. With many thanks.
