Foxwoods Resort Casino announced Wednesday another round of renovation projects on the heels of last month’s pivotal 30th Anniversary, with plans that include a new VIP Players Lounge located in the former Veranda Café.
Also, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe‘s property anticipated the opening of a Sushi Bar by Bou restaurant; the re-opening of Wingstop; CardVault, a retail experience for sports cards and collectibles; and an expansive employee only food court.
The Veranda Café will be transformed into a brand-new exclusive VIP Players Lounge. Eligible guests will experience a completely reimagined space with over 225 seats, a new buffet line with a variety of offerings and a 15-seat bar. This location will be the go to spot for players and overlooks the woods of southeastern Connecticut. This new lounge will be a true upgrade for Foxwoods’ loyal guests and will open in summer 2022.
“Foxwoods’ newest dining option, Sushi By Bou will delight guests with a uniquely designed dining space on the concourse, as well as offer a private sushi dining experience with its Sushi Suite, a luxe addition slated for a completely reimagined hotel suite in the Great Cedar Hotel. Using only the finest quality fish in the world, Sushi By Bou specializes in serving a high quality traditional Omakase dining experience, using traditional techniques to craft memorable and delicious dishes. Sushi By Bou will also offer an extensive list of hand-crafted cocktails, imported sakes and Japanese beers”, the resort described.
The quintessential destination for wings, Wingstop, will also be reopening at the Great Cedar food court as of March 22.
Foxwoods also announced the opening of CardVault, a first-of-its-kind retail experience designed for buying, selling, trading, grading and consigning sports cards and collectibles.
The venue will feature a walk-in steel vault, housing cards displayed in expansive see-through cases. Fans will be able to buy, trade and sell cards from various sports leagues, including the NFL, MLB, NHL, as well as purchase premium sports collectibles and unique artwork.
Additionally, designs for a new employee-only dining area and café are also underway. Set to open this Thursday morning, this brand-new food-court style dining area can host up to 325 staff members and will feature dining options for staff to enjoy, including specialty entrees, healthy choices, fresh-made sandwiches and salads, pizza, burgers and more.
“As we continue to trailblaze and redefine what it means to be a resort casino, our priority is continuing to provide innovative and high-quality experiences for everyone that walks through our halls – not just our guests, but our team members, as well. These new openings signify another wave of enhancements to show our appreciation for all that have supported us over the past thirty years. We are just getting started”, the company described.
For International Women’s Month, Foxwoods celebrated future female leaders by hosting troop members from both Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England and Connecticut at Sugar Factory. Both councils received a $15,000 donation each as part of this year’s 30th anniversary celebrations, where Foxwoods has pledged $30,000 a month to local community organizations.
In February, Foxwoods celebrated its 30th milestone anniversary with a lineup of announcements including the addition of Great Wolf Lodge at Mashantucket, a new Rainmaker Expo Center and a High Stakes Bingo Hall.
