Construction progresses on Cherokee Casino Grove

Tribal officials joined the local community today to celebrate as crews placed one of the final beams on the new Cherokee Casino Grove, marking completion of the structural phase in construction. Cherokee Nation Entertainment, the tribe's gaming and hospitality company, broke ground on the new entertainment destination in March and plans to open this winter.

Cherokee Casino Grove is bringing 175 jobs to the Grand Lake region while enhancing the thriving tourism market.

"It's a significant day for the Cherokee Nation and for Delaware County," said Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. "A quality job is one of the key foundations to a healthy family. I am so proud we are creating opportunities for citizens to improve their lives through employment. Our business expansion around the Grove community means more Cherokees will be working and contributing to the local economy."

The $23 million, 39,000-square-foot facility will be the tribe's 10th casino location. The destination features 400 electronic games, a restaurant, a full-service bar, a live music venue, a dance floor and complimentary non-alcoholic drinks. The rustic, lodge-style venue will offer event space for hosting private and community events and an outdoor patio.

"We are the market leader in entertainment and hospitality, and we anticipate bringing that experience to Grove," said Shawn Slaton, chief executive officer for Cherokee Nation Businesses. "This new casino will feature the very best in gaming, nightlife and dining. We couldn't be more pleased to become a part of this community and have the opportunity to help grow the region’s economy."

CNE is building the casino at Highway 59 and East 250 Road, near Tom Cat Corner and close to the popular Shangri-La Golf Club, marina and resort at Monkey Island.

The company currently operates Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa; eight Cherokee Casinos, including a horse racing track; three hotels; three golf courses; and other retail operations.

Cherokee Nation and its businesses have a $1.55 billion impact on Oklahoma's economy.
