Pinnacle announces B.R. casino will open Aug. 29
As part of a quarterly report released this morning, Pinnacle Entertainment announced it's planning to officially open the doors of its $368 million L'Auberge Casino & Hotel in Baton Rouge at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 29. Pinnacle says the grand opening will "feature memorable entertainment, dining experiences and an unveiling ceremony capped off with a stunning fireworks display." Details on entertainment specifics were not released, but are expected as the opening date nears. L'Auberge Baton Rouge will feature a single-level gaming floor measuring 74,000 square feet, with nearly 1,500 slot machines, 50 table games and poker room. The hotel is 12 stories, and has 205 guest rooms and a rooftop pool. There are four dining outlets throughout the complex, as well as a casino bar with views of the Mississippi River, a multi-purpose events center and outdoor festival grounds. The covered parking garage encompasses 800 of the 2,400 total parking spots on site. "We are so proud of our talented team members' hard work to date and are thrilled to share the premier casino in the region with our guests and the Baton Rouge community; including its vibrant casino, breathtaking riverfront views and distinct dining experiences," says L'Auberge Baton Rouge Vice President and General Manager Mickey Parenton.
Today's poll question: Do you think the Baton Rouge market can sustain three casinos, as it will have once L'Auberge opens?
