On September 17, Gun Lake Casino celebrated the completion of its recent $100 million expansion with a grand opening celebration. The Gun Lake Tribal Council and casino executives attended a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this morning.

The expansion includes 72,000 square feet of space, including additional gaming space, seating for live concerts and sporting events, a new outdoor fire-lit entertainment area, and three new restaurants: SHKODE Chophouse, Craft Bar Kitchen (CBK), and 131 Sportsbar & Lounge.

“This expansion reinforces Gun Lake Casino’s position as a premier entertainment and gaming destination in the Midwest. Each of these new venues blends the highest quality of dining with a unique entertainment experience that will resonate deeply with each guest,” said Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer of Gun Lake Casino. “We are very grateful of the Gun Lake Tribe’s continued commitment to the property and the team members that make Gun Lake Casino a true standard of excellence in service, hospitality and entertainment.”

The SHKODE Chophouse, the Pottawatomi word for fire, will offer locally-sourced ingredients, while the new CBK will offer over 100 beer options and farm-to-table dining. The 131 Sportsbar and Lounge will experience floor to ceiling video walls and 180 degree views while being able to place their favorite sports wagers. 

The grand opening of the new facilities will be followed with promotions and several performances from musicians, aerialists, and cirque-style performers on the nights of September 17 and September 18.

“As a Tribal Citizen and a member of this community, I am proud to watch the growth of Gun Lake Casino,” said Gun Lake Tribe Chairman Bob Peters. “With each new amenity and expansion, we increase our ability to contribute to the wellbeing of the community and our Tribal Citizens.”
