The third casino operated by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians was opened last week in Cathedral City, California, in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City, the Coachella Valley’s newest casino, was originally expected to open by the end of the year, but opened last Tuesday with little forewarning and no fanfare.
Agua Caliente Casino comprises 30,000sq.ft of gaming space, including room for 530 slots and eight table games. An adjacent 12,000 square- foot outdoor pavilion is slated to host live entertainment, special events and other gatherings.
Several restaurants and bars also are planned for the property, although it was unclear how many were immediately open.
