    Arizona Room Patio Grill™ Marks the Completion of Property’s Renovation Project

    SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Ariz. (March 13, 2013) Casino Arizona, an enterprise of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, is proud to announce the opening of the new Arizona Room Patio Grill on March 12. It marks the completion of an overall renovation project that has been underway since December 2011. The revamped lounge opens with a sizable food and drink menu, new décor and a state-of-the-art media wall.

    “We are so excited to welcome guests to the Arizona Room Patio Grill and to the refreshed Casino Arizona,” said Ramon Martinez, director of public relations of Casino Arizona. “The renovation was phased so as not to impact our guests too much. Though, they have demonstrated much patience as they waited for everything to be done. We know they will love the finished product as much as we do.”

    For its part of the project, the Arizona Room Patio Grill has been totally overhauled. Starting as an indoor/outdoor piano lounge, the outlet has transformed into a Southwestern cantina, ideal for watching live music or sports entertainment. The grill is outfitted with a stage, where musical acts will be featured nightly. It also has more than 30 television monitors throughout including a 24-screen media wall showcasing current sporting events.

    The warm, yet modern décor of the new restaurant has seating for more than 60, comprised of hi and low-top tables, lounge and patio seating as well as a main and back bar. The room’s hardwood floor will serve as a perfect dance floor complementing its full-size stage. With performance lighting and sound capabilities, the stage will play host to a variety of musical acts and styles.

    Casino Arizona’s talented chefs have crafted a menu with bold flavors. Guests will delight in the Machaca Beef and Mojo Chicken Street Tacos, Pork Green Chili Stew and Fiery Romesco Burger and Red Chili Chicken Posole. Desserts on the roster include Churros and Sopapillas with desert honey. Moreover, Arizona Room Patio Grill’s bar offers a wide-selection of specialty cocktails from the likes of a Pineapple Margarita to Prairie Fire, a Fireball Whiskey with a dash of Tabasco. Wines and craft beers from local breweries including Four Peaks and San Tan also are available.

    The Arizona Room Patio Grill will be open daily from 11am-2am. For more information on the eatery and to see the complete menu, visit
