BLACK HAWK, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- Monarch Casino Black Hawk, the wholly owned subsidiary of Monarch Casino & Resort, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRI) (the "Company"), welcomed more than a hundred invited guests and local dignitaries at a ribbon cutting reception today marking completion of the first phase of an extensive casino redesign. Vibrantly designed wool carpet loomed in Ireland, rich wall coverings with mirrored accents and chandeliers with cascading rock crystals are prominent throughout the new casino. The sophisticated mountain décor complements Black Hawk's architecture and landscape.
Guests were greeted in the new glass foyer by a towering rough-hewn and polished stone fireplace that has a dramatic color-changing feature and stacked log inlays. The all-new 60' granite-top stage bar is anchored by a 211-inch high-definition video wall. Guests will enjoy playing their favorite video poker games while being entertained by popular musicians. The adjacent intimate lounge is framed by three-dimensional multi-colored wood planks and is a perfect hideaway to sit back and watch all of the action.
This phase of redesign follows the previous completion of Black Hawk's newest dining experience, The Buffet, featuring nightly Whole Maine Lobster, Crab, and USDA Prime Rib in addition to all new restrooms.
The city-approved master plan will create an unparalleled guest experience; including a 335-foot hotel tower with over 500 guest rooms and suites, full-service spa, roof-top swimming pool, new restaurants and bars, 7,500 square feet of banquet facilities and convention/meeting rooms and a ten-story parking garage.
