Club One Casino and cardroom in Fresno will reopen in a new location after 16 months of closure.
US.- Club One Casino and Cardroom in Fresno, California, will reopen in a new location after being closed for 16 months.
The casino was located on Van Ness Avenue, next to the Radisson Hotel, for more than 25 years. It’s now moving to a location formerly occupied by Club Imperio nightclub at Granite Park.
The new location offers 33,000 square feet of space and is currently being revamped. A temporary 13,000 square feet space for a cardroom will allow space for 25 card tables, a bar, and a dining area.
Once renovations to the entire building are completed, the card room will be moved, and the temporary space will be converted into a restaurant and events centre.
Kyle Kirkland, owner of Club One Casino said: “We came in and said ‘the whole building is 33,000 square feet—we have AC, we have power, we have plumbing, we have a kitchen—we can figure out how to get the cardroom in here temporarily, and build out the rest of the building, and ultimately move the cardroom in there”.
The cost to complete the renovations and the land options is estimated at between $10m to $12m. Once the building is renovated, Kirkland hopes to have 51 card tables at Club One.
He said: “The key for us is to get up and going, get people back to work, and start paying the city again. We didn’t expect to be closed for about 16 months.”
