TAHLEQUAH – The Cherokee Nation is nearing a construction milestone at the new Cherokee Casino Tahlequah, located at Cherokee Springs Plaza. A topping-out ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. on Oct. 1 to celebrate the placing of the final beam.

The tribe broke ground in March and plans to open the new casino next spring.

The 92,000-square-foot facility will feature 525 electronic games, a 144-seat restaurant, a grab-and-go cafe, a live music venue, a full-service bar and complimentary nonalcoholic beverages. The property includes 33,000 square feet of convention and meeting space that accommodates up to 1,000 people.

Cherokee Nation Entertainment is the wholly owned gaming, hospitality, retail and tourism entity of the CN. The company currently operates Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa; nine Cherokee Casinos, including a horse racing track; three hotels; three golf courses; and other retail operations.
