Black Oak Casino Resort, an enterprise owned and operated by The Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians, recently hosted a three-day celebration marking the grand opening of its new Willow Creek Lounge. This latest renovation offers guests an expanded space for nightlife and for weekly live entertainment at the property.

“All renovations at Black Oak Casino Resort are done with our guests in mind as we strive to enhance their experience. The all-new Willow Creek Lounge does that,” said Ron Patel, CEO of Black Oak Casino Resort. “It also further solidifies our position as the foremost entertainment destination in the region.”

Located inside Black Oak Casino Resort, to the right of its main Casino entrance, the new Willow Creek Lounge is a 5000 square foot extension with a 299-person capacity. The lounge’s modern design is accented with elements of dark wood mixed with stone and enhanced with soft blue tones. LED lighting throughout the room highlights its seating, which includes eight booths and 32 short tables. Guests must have a Players Club card for access. It’s free and easy to join.

In addition to the expansive seating, the lounge is outfitted with plenty of space to host the live entertainment for which the property has become known. A large dance floor is flanked by a full stage with state-of-the-art lighting and audio equipment.

The Willow Creek pre-lounge area also includes five party pit table games, as well as many new themed slots. The pre-lounge is also home to guests’ favorite video slots.
