Morongo's 65,000-sq-ft expansion passes halfway point

October 1, 2019

Morongo Casino Expansion 2020

Last January Morongo Casino Resort and Spa broke ground for its massive casino expansion and renovation project. After nine months the project has passed its midpoint on the way to completion next summer.

New construction is adding 65,000 square feet which will increase the existing gaming floor by more than 30 percent. The new space will accomodate 800 more slot machines, more table games, and a new bar and lounge.

"We are completely renovating almost every millimeter of the existing casino floor in some way, from new carpet to elegant lighting and new ceiling and wall treatments," says Simon Farmer, Executive Marketing Director at Morongo. "We have put together an all-star team of incredible designers, contractors and craftsmen, and the results are going to spectacular."

Curtains in the existing casino hide the total renovation work from Morongo guests. Restaurants on the first floor are being redesigned and upgraded one at a time. A 750-space vehicle parking garage with valet service is also under construction.

Morongo Casino opens 2 new restaurants

May 15, 2019

Morongo has made significant changes to its dining options. Two new restaurants were opened this month and three were closed to make new space for the future.

The new restaurants are the Good Times Cafe, a full-service gastropub, and Pink Coffee, an upscale coffeehouse. Both are opened 24 hours and located adjacent to each other.

The closed restaurants are the Natural 9 Noodle Company, Tacos & Tequila and Cafe Serrano. The Cafe Serrano will be replaced by a future Asian restaurant. Both the Pink Coffee and the Good Times Cafe are part of the current expansion and renovation project that increased the casino floor by 30% and reopened the old Casino Morongo.

Pink Coffee has a bright and energetic decor which feels like a Parisian street cafe. It offers a variety of coffee drinks and light European pastries. Jean-Marie Verhoeven, a Belgian pastry chef, helped develop the restaurant and train employees.

The adjacent Good Times Cafe serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night snacks. You can choose from 16 craft beers on tap and a menu of burgers, pizza and salads. Most items are $15-$20 and some are higher.

October 25, 2018

Artist rendering after 2020 renovation

PROJECT SUMMARY

  • A 65,000-square-foot addition will increase the gaming floor by one third and add 800 more slots and table games.
  • Several restaurants will be replaced or renovated.
  • Construction of 750-space parking structure.
  • The current Morongo Bingo Hall will be modified to house 300 slot machines during construction.

On Tuesday, October 30 a meeting will be held to discuss the planned expansion and renovation project at the Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa. The public is invited to learn more about the project and submit comments on their concerns during the meeting.

The current casino is 150,000 square feet. 65,000 square feet will be added to the casino under the project expansion. This space will allow for the accommodation of 800 additional slot machines. More game tables will also be added. The dining venues at the entertainment venue will be renovated or replaced. There will also be a valet garage added. The new parking area will offer 750 spaces for vehicles. Valet parking services will be free to guests.

Located across the parking lot is the original Casino Morongo. It is the home of the Morongo Bingo Hall and the Canyon Lanes Bowling Alley. Some of the gaming machines will be relocated here during the renovation. This is being done so that guests can still play their favorite games while the project is going on.

The construction is scheduled to begin in October. It is expected to take 18 months to complete. 425 new jobs will be created by the project.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on the casino's second floor in the Morongo Grand Ballroom. It will be hosted by the Morongo Band of Mission Indians.

The location of the Morongo Casino, Resort & Casino is near Cabazon at 495000 Seminole Drive.
