Potawatomi Hotel & Casino will be undergoing a $100 million renovation project that will “revolutionize” the third-floor area of the casino.
The project will include over 120,000 square feet of space and provide guests with new gaming, dining, and entertainment options.
Said Property CEO and General Manager Dominic Ortiz:
“Since opening more than 30 years ago, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has made it a priority to evolve and meet the needs of our guests. Not only will this elevate the brand, but it will also further our long-standing status as the premier entertainment destination in the region as the market becomes significantly more competitive. This is just the beginning. Additional exciting changes and new amenities are in store. The best is truly yet to come.”
Milwaukee’s Greenfire Management Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Potawatomi Business Development Corporation, will team up with Gilbane Building Services as the general contractor for the project. Meanwhile, I-5 will serve as the project architect. Construction is expected to be completed by the Spring of 2023.
1,800 Slot Machine Stations
The renovated area will house a total of 1,800 slot machine stations, including a new bar with 28 bar-top slot seats and an array of 4K televisions. Guests will also find cashier stations and a Fire Keeper’s Club booth.
A new high-limit room is also in the pipeline. The room will incorporate upscale decor and top-notch service, a craft bar, stage, and a gourmet kitchen that will feature a brick oven. The casino’s skywalk and entry area will be given a modern look, with LED lighting, video walls, and a sound system throughout the third floor.
Two New Food and Beverage Options
Aside from the gaming upgrades, the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino will also have two new food and beverage options. Rock & Brews, a chain of restaurants founded by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of the legendary rock band KISS, will open its newest location near the casino’s skywalk, as guests enter the property.
A Starbucks Coffee outlet will also be housed by the casino, across Rock & Brews, off the skywalk entrance. It will be a full-service Starbucks branch with both beverage and food options. The casino will also open three “quick service” food and beverage options and a new gift and convenience shop.
