Affordability, luxury, fine cuisine and star-studded entertainment makes Pinnacle Entertainment’s River City Casino’s new Event Center and Hotel a sure bet.

Not since the days when riverboats plied the Mississippi has South St Louis County had such a destination. So it’s no surprise designers of this 82-million dollar addition project took its cue from history to create River City’s New Age Victorian steamboat-dÈcor style, a style that’s bodacious and opulent that doesn’t skip on the needs of discerning 21st century visitors.

River City Event Center and new River City Hotel, which officially opened September 15 is a dynamite duo - where a concert or event can be rolled into an overnight escape or weekend getaway.  River City’s Hotel lavishly appointed rooms equipped with pillow-top mattresses, 42-inch HD TVs, WIFI, overhead rain showers and claw foot soaking tubs will spoil you. Traveler Tip: check out the garden patio rooms. Spacious well-appointed, each with its own private garden patio niche that’s perfect to lounge and catch either sunrays or moonbeams while sipping your favorite libation.

Visitors may want to check in early to allow ample time to chill out and enjoy the room before strolling the gaming floor or indulging those culinary cravings at one of River City’s five signature restaurants as the1904 Steakhouse,renown for prime streaks and seafood or Lewy Nine’s CafÈ, a retro diner theme named in honor of St Louis’ namesake, King Louis IX.

If you’re lucky, the special event you’re attending could include food. Lucky indeed, so prepare to partake in sumptuous gourmet fare as Mustard –glazed Missouri Lamb Chops, Red Lentil Miso crusted Sea bass or Pinnacle Prime beef on menus created by Event Center Chef Chris Lee and his culinary team.

Beyond the plate – River City’s Event Center is outfitted with the latest and best acoustics and lighting effects found anywhere in St Louis. The result, a concert experience that’s memorable.
