Casino Renovation, Restaurants
Twenty-five years after designing the original properties, Cuningham Group returned to make significant property enhancements to improve the overall guest experience.
The gaming floors will receive floor-to-ceiling renovations. In addition, a new pool area at Grand Casino Hinckley will help to extend the amenities beyond the casino floor.
The 24-hour Stories Diner at Hinckley has a timeless, modern bistro feel with open dining seating overlooking the gaming floor. The Brand Burger Bar (B3) at Mille Lacs draws inspiration from sporting activities with a massive LED-changing ceiling light inspired by a dart board; a basketball hoop-inspired rope wall surrounding a seating area; dimpled walls portray golf; fabric on the back of booths resembles athletic shoe material; and porcelain planked flooring represent a football field.
The phased renovation allows the casinos to remain operational during design and construction.
