The Hippodrome Casino is on the hunt for “Britain’s smallest bouncers” for its new entrance at Leicester Square.
The casino has placed adverts in newspapers to find “door dwarves” and is welcoming applications from those under 4ft 10 inches.
An advert in Metro read: “Door Dwarfs required for The Hippodrome Casino, London.
“The Hippodrome is seeking to create a team of Britain’s smallest bouncers – Door Dwarfs – for its new entrance in Cranbourn Street, Leicester Square.
“Duties include door control and customer relations.
“We welcome applications from those under 4ft 10 inches.”
Simon Thomas, the owner of the Hippodrome Casino, told the Daily Telegraph, that the applicants should be able to put a smile on the face of visitors.
“[…]Nobody messes with a dwarf, so in a way they are very good doormen.
“They can handle people much better than having a human eclipse on the door as some of the clubs do in London. Nobody is going to pick on someone who is below-average height. It’s not exactly a macho thing to do so it is a very good way of controlling the door.”
