Excitement. Elegance. Excellence.
Designed to appeal to both VIPs and casual players, the 75,000 square foot casino offers an array of gambling options in an intimate setting. With approximately 1,500 slot machines and 60 table games, the American Place casino will provide endless opportunities for gaming amusement.
Exclusivity is key.
The Mansion at American Place is an all-suite, 20-room hotel designed specifically for the casino’s VIP gamers and the region’s most discerning travelers. Similar in character to the most exclusive accommodations in Las Vegas, The Mansion will accommodate guests in private villas ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 square feet.
Butlers, room service, and spa services are available to ensure luxury and comfort. Guests staying in the high-end suites will also enjoy a lush, interior garden and private pool. The Italianate design, elegant décor, and luxurious amenities offer high-end players levels of comfort, privacy, and pampering that will make them repeat visitors.
American Place Entertainment Center
American Place’s state-of-the-art entertainment center will make guests feel like the performance is just for them, no matter where they are in the room. The tiered levels maximize the experience for all by providing an unobstructed view throughout the 1,500-seat venue. The versatile design of the multi-purpose venue allows the space to transform into a sought after place for conferences and private events, broadening the attraction across the Chicago and Milwaukee areas.
Richness you can taste.
American Place will feature a gourmet restaurant that will rival the finest restaurants in Chicago. The exquisite menu and curated wine pairings will create a must-visit amenity for guests at the Mansion and provide a unique experience for local-area residents seeking that special night out.
Additional dining options will include a casual restaurant adjoining the sports book and an Asian noodle bar near the Baccarat pit.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
The scale of this project will do much more for Waukegan than enhance the city's entertainment and lifestyle alternatives. It will significantly contribute to the economy by creating thousands of new jobs, supporting charities and local governments and help build awareness throughout the Chicago and Milwaukee area. Building such a destination in the Fountain Square area will also re-energize the local hotels that are currently operating and attract visitors from outside the state.
