In the eastern American state of Connecticut and the Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment enterprise of the federally-recognized Mohegan Tribe has announced that it is to invest some $15 million into its giant Mohegan Sun property over the course of the next three years.
The casino operator used an official Thursday press release to detail that this cash will be used to fund a range of projects including the debut of a new 6,500 sq ft VIP lounge and bar within its Casino of the Earth area. The enterprise stated that this fresh section being designed by Rockwell Group is expected to open in the autumn complete with a dining element, a full bar and an ‘alluring fireplace.’
Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment noted that it is working with Rockwell Group in hopes of incorporating ‘Mohegan-influenced designs and elements’ into this coming space, which will be situated next to the venue’s already-popular Ballo Italian Kitchen and Bar and be subsequently joined by a non-VIP food and beverage offering. When finished, it asserted that the amenity is to ‘offer a dramatic and elegant atmosphere’ that is certain to create ‘the backdrop for the perfect night out’ for members of its Momentum Club loyalty program.
Upon completion of this new offering and Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment explained that it intends to begin work on renovating the Sachem Lounge food and beverage area within the adjacent Casino of the Sky zone. The operator disclosed that this will be joined by a $3 million fire and water-themed makeover of the two 3,500 sq ft Royal Suites situated inside Mohegan Sun’s iconic Sky Tower.

As if all of this wasn’t enough and Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment pronounced that it plans to splash the cash on bringing ‘major improvements’ to its Mohegan Sun Golf Club, which is located some 14 miles north of Mohegan Sun near the small Connecticut community of Baltic. The operator divulged that this 18-hole facility originally designed by Geoffrey Cornish will be put through a three-year program of ‘various redesigns and improvements’ encompassing the purchase of new turf equipment costing at least $1 million and a range of course renovations.
