California casino undergoing renovations

10 August 2011

SAN DIEGO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Renovations are under way at Sycuan Casino & Resort. With a full design overhaul in process, the casino is scheduled to have every inch of the interior revamped by Fall 2011. The casino remains open to the public as Sycuan’s design and architecture teams work in phases to renovate the casino gaming areas, create an all new non-smoking buffet, open a new sports bar & grill restaurant and install a one-of-a-kind specialty lighting fixture in the main lobby.

Hnedak Bobo Group (HBG) and Cleo Design, both renowned in the hospitality industry, have designed, built and decorated casinos and gaming spaces in Las Vegas and across the United States. Some of the upgrades and elements they will incorporate into Sycuan Casino include bold and beautiful carpets featuring a custom-designed pattern, new tile and stonework, rich wall coverings and woodwork and architectural ceilings making the casino its own work of art.

Due for completion on May 27, Paipa’s Buffet will be in a new location and will now be entirely non-smoking. Renovations to the buffet include a new kitchen, seating to fit 320 people, more specialty food stations and design elements aimed at making each guest’s dining experience new and enjoyable. Executive Chef Paul Schwab will complement the visual upgrades by incorporating fresh, new menu items including brick oven pizza, a fresh pasta station, freshly made tortillas, grilled steaks and an expansive new dessert bar.

On August 31, Sycuan Casino will reveal its most stunning new addition: a 15-foot in diameter, specialty lighting feature hung from the atrium ceiling. Programmable LED lights will spill color and light down to a video floor below giving the illusion of water, but no water will be used. The feature is the first of its kind in San Diego.

A component designed for sports fans is the brand new GameDay Sports Bar & Grill, also set to open on August 31. The sports bar will be an experience for football, baseball, basketball and hockey fans to meet with friends in an open, exciting environment with numerous high definition and projection TVs. The menu will feature more casual fare, including pizza and hardwood-smoked barbecue specialties.

Other renovations to Sycuan Casino include visual upgrades to the Poker Room, Off Track Betting Room, Bingo Pavilion, gift shop and the restrooms.
