Casinos and Gaming
If you’re looking for entertainment in Vancouver, the city’s casinos are a sure bet. Along with gaming, you’ll find everything from live concerts and shows, to swanky lounges to upscale restaurants. So whether you’re feeling lucky or just want to a one-stop destination for the night, these spots are worth checking out.
With two levels of gaming – including a high-end slot lounge and VIP salons – Parq Vancouver appeals to players of every skill level. Monthly promotions, slot tournaments, and giveaways make this a must-visit in downtown Vancouver’s entertainment district. The 72,000-square-foot casino links Parq’s two hotels, the luxury JW Marriott Parq Vancouver and boutique lifestyle resort the DOUGLAS, an Autograph Collection Hotel. Getting from your room to the casino floor is just an elevator ride away, and if you’re hungry, Parq Vancouver is home to five restaurants staffed by internationally and regionally acclaimed chefs. The centerpiece attraction is just a few levels above the casino – the sixth-floor outdoor park (appropriately named The Parq) featuring walking trails, more than 200 native pines, and outdoor dining and drinking at D/6 Bar & Lounge and The Victor.
River Rock Casino
Located in nearby Richmond, River Rock Casino is so much more than just a place to play the tables. A four-star resort and casino, visitors are likely to be lured to River Rock by the biggest names in music and comedy that regularly grace the stage at the Show Theatre (think Gipsy Kings, Culture Club and Amy Schumer), and the free live entertainment at Lulu’s Lounge and Curve. On the gaming floor, you’ll find all your favourite table games, more than 1,100 slots, and a dedicated Poker room. If you win big, celebrate at the high-end Tramonto or Sea Harbour; if not, hit The Buffet or the food court. Not ready to head home? Retire to a room in one of the two hotels attached to the casino.
