The Gardens Casino announced the soft opening of its new US$90m facility a project that will be fully completed later this year. The state-of-the-art venue will be adding new game tables, enhanced amenities, a new events center, and an upscale bar and lounge with handcrafted cocktails, along with a premium casual restaurant with seating for more than 100 guests.
The key component of the new casino is the construction of a state-of-the-art 200,000 square foot venue housing up to 100 new card tables, which brings The Gardens Casino’s total capacity to more than 300 tables. The two-story building also features special amenities, including a 12,365 square foot meeting and events space where The Gardens Casino will host a variety of public and private events.
“Our business keeps growing, so this expansion was designed specifically for our guests so that we can provide the premier gaming and dining experience in Southern California,” said Ron Sarabi, The Gardens Casino general manager. “The new casino provides our guests with a truly elevated experience, including more space, state-of-the-art card tables and amenities, two designated VIP areas and a diverse restaurant and bar all within our new building.”
Prior to the opening of the new casino, The Gardens Casino welcomed 5,000 to 7,000 guests each day for gaming and dining experiences. The $90m renovation is expected to increase guest capacity by up to 50 percent. Additionally, The Gardens Casino plans to add 400 new jobs to its current workforce of more than 1,800 employees, serving as the largest employer in the City of Hawaiian Gardens and the surrounding area.
“With the opening of our new building, we hope to provide even more jobs and financial support to our local citizens, charities and community organisations,” added Sarabi. “With a population of approximately 15,000 residents, The Gardens Casino is pleased to sustain the majority of the City of Hawaiian Gardens’ annual budget. Showing our support both physically and fiscally to our local community is extremely important to The Gardens Casino and we value our strong working relationship with the City of Hawaiian Gardens.”
