Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Grand Opening: July 12-15, 2018

July 6, 2018 Grand Portage MN – After years of intensive construction, Grand Portage Lodge and Casino is throwing open the doors to welcome guests to gorgeous new public spaces, refreshed lakeside dining area and lounge, elegantly renewed rooms and suites, new event center and meeting rooms, a new pool complex with direct access to Portage Bay, and of course, the new casino floor. A ribbon cutting is scheduled for 2:00pm on Thursday, July 12th 2018.

With a dramatic interior honoring the indigenous culture of Grand Portage, the new casino is a spectacular entertainment space featuring 425+ slot machines and exciting table games featuring Blackjack and Three Card Poker. Lodge and casino guests will find a casino deli, gift shop, and views through a three-story atrium offering gorgeous views of Lake Superior and the Northwoods.

“We are so glad that the dust has settled and the building phase is over,” says chairman Norman Deschampe. “The new Grand Portage Lodge and Casino offers guests excellent facilities to stay, play, eat, and host meetings and banquets right here on the North Shore. Our location is spectacular, our doors are open, and we want to share this wonderful place.”

The final renovations have transformed Antlers Lounge with an eight-tap draft system and big screen TVs, and rejuvenated the iconic Island View Dining Room while still offering excellent fare and big lake views. New banquet and meeting rooms are part of a complete overhaul of the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino event center where visitors can look forward to a schedule of weekend comedy and music.

“We’ve had bookings for family occasions, bridal and baby showers, weddings, birthday getaways, and many other celebrations,” says Frank Vecchio, Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Marketing Manager. “Everyone loves the new spaces, especially our beautiful pool complex with direct outdoor access to Portage Bay. I don’t think there’s a better place to stay and play on the North Shore.”
