LAS VEGAS—Station Casinos LLC will invest $20 million over the next year in Green Valley Ranch Resort by introducing a new lineup of four restaurant and bar concepts, as well as enhancing other venues and amenities within the property, which is located in Henderson, NV. New concepts include Mercadito, Tippling Hall, Pizza Rock and Tony’s Slice House.
The news comes on the heels of Station Casinos recent announcement that its other luxury resort, Red Rock Resort, will undergo a $35 million investment, bringing a total of $55 million in capital improvements and new offerings to both resorts.
Highlights of the $20 million reinvestment include Mercadito Green Valley Ranch, from the Sandoval brothers, which will offer Mexican cuisine to both Green Valley Ranch Resort and Red Rock Resort. In addition, Tippling Hall, a part of Mercadito Hospitality, will be the second location from Tad Carducci and Paul Tanguay—the Tippling Bros.—following the debut in Chicago this summer. Tony Gemignani’s Pizza Rock will feature classic Italian entrees, pasta and gourmet pizzas in a variety of styles. And Slice House by Tony Gemignani will be a casual venue with New York, Sicilian and California style pizzas along with calzones, strombolis, paninis, baked ziti, seasonal salads, meatball subs, sausages and peppers.
The reno also includes a new marquee featuring a 30-ft. electronic LED screen as well as a six-ft. LED message ticker that has replaced the static marquee facing the Clark County 215 beltway. Additionally, a 16-seat live Keno lounge by the Grand Café with Keno boards placed throughout the casino recently opened.
Additional enhancements will include the addition of a wedding suite, as well as refreshes to nearly 300 guestrooms that comprise the resort’s East Tower, the 30,000-sq.-ft. Spa at Green Valley Ranch Resort, some banquet space, the high limit gaming room and updates and additional seating at the Feast Buffet. Additionally, 33 of the resort’s VIP suites ranging from 950 to 4,000 sq. ft. will be upgraded.
Construction will commence soon and be completed by spring 2015.
