Brand new casino, two luxury hotels to replace aging Edgewater Casino
Feeling lucky? The $600 million replacement for aging Edgewater Casino at the Plaza of Nations is well under construction and preparing to welcome gamblers, revelers and hotel guests early next year.
Parq Vancouver is adjacent to BC Place Stadium and will feature 600 slot machines and 75 table games spread over 75,000 sq. ft., making it the largest casino in Western Canada when it opens in early 2017.
There will also be five restaurants, three bars and lounges, event and conference space, gym, spa, cafe and two brand new hotels.
In June, the Vancouver Sun reported that Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, who are responsible for developing some of Las Vegas’ most successful restaurants, will be in charge of food and beverage at parq Vancouver. They’ve been responsible for food and beverage operations at the famous Bellagio, as well as the Wynn in Las Vegas.
The pair revealed that the flagship restaurant at the new casino will be a Chinese fine dining restaurant, similar to Wing Lei at the Wynn, the first Chinese food restaurant in the U.S. to be awarded a Michelin star.
There will also be a market, inspired by the night markets of Singapore, plus whiskey and tea lounge, an artisan coffee bar, and a cocktail lounge.
