Renovation at The Gardens Casino Nears Completion

Renovation work at The Gardens Casino in Hawaiian Gardens, California is entering its final stages and it all shows that the gambling venue is soon to be reopened, local media reported. Initially announced as a $45-million upgrade, the project gradually proved to be a larger-scale one.

According to Ron Sarabi, General Manager at the casino, the amount of $90 million has been spent so far. The renovated Gardens Casino now spreads over a 200,000-square-foot site. The building has been designed so as to accommodate between 5,000 and 7,000 gambling customers. The venue would feature over 300 gaming tables and a number of other options.

Although the casino’s interior is almost complete, local media said after a Friday tour with The Gardens Casino General Manager, there is still certain construction work to be done outside the property. For instance, the venues’ parking lot is yet to be completed. An official opening date is also yet to be scheduled.

Commenting on the casino’s design, Mr. Sarabi explained that the venue now features natural and cool colors and provides patrons with more space at and around the gaming tables. Following the renovation, gambling customers will be able to compete in No-Limit Hold’em tournaments, and to also play blackjack, pai gow poker, EZ baccarat, and a number of other popular casino games.

Outside the casino floor, the renovated property will also feature numerous food and beverage options. Professional cooks are set to prepare international cuisine, including Mexican, Vietnamese, Italian, Vietnamese, and Chinese dishes. An oval-shaped bar will, too, be intended to entertain patrons. The Gardens Casino will also feature an events facility.

Formerly known as Hawaiian Gardens Casino, the gambling venue accommodated casino players under a white tent. The property was visited by California Governor Jerry Brown late in 2013 and the renovation project was greenlighted by the state’s top legislator.

The Gardens Casino has long been the largest employer in Hawaiian Gardens, the smallest city in the Los Angeles County. It has population of about 14,600 people. The casino has been providing much-needed tax revenue to the city and has been employing nearly 2,000 residents and people from surrounding cities. Upon visiting The Gardens Casino in 2013, Gov. Brown was informed that the facility provided up to 70% of the city’s general-fund revenues.
