Tribal Chairman Bill Sterud may have summed it up best, "It's a pretty exciting time for us."
Coming December 2019, The Emerald Queen Casino will proudly open the doors of its new home! Our new location will rival our counterparts not only within the region but to Las Vegas and beyond.
The newly constructed casino will run parallel to our existing I-5 Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma location, alongside Portland Avenue while sprawling from East 29th Street all the way down to East R Street.
Featuring a footprint of a whopping 310,000 Square feet, this new location will facilitate more than just premier gambling & entertainment within the region. Inside patrons will find an area bar & buffet along with a 24-hour cafe, sports bar & deli. This permanent facility will also feature a 21,000 square foot event center that will serve as a host venue for premier acts & events visiting the northwest, with a total seating capacity of 2,000 guest! There will be no need to sweat parking the night of the big event as our twin parking garages will have a total capacity of over 1,300 vehicles.
In the words of General Manager Frank Wright "It is going to be fantastic!"
Capped in a black and grey textile roof inspired by designs on traditional tribal baskets this venue will capture some of the most picturesque views in the south sound region. Featuring views of not only Mt. Rainier but the downtown Tacoma area as well, thanks to its various lookout points found throughout the casino. These lookout points will also provide natural lighting in the building which will help highlight the various wood carving & natural element features found throughout the casino floor.
After the completion of the casino building, we will enter phase III of our newly established home. Slated to open December 2020 our casino we will add a 150-200 room hotel & spa. Included in this plan is the addition of not only additional conference room space but also a rooftop restaurant!
