From Tulsa World “New Margaritaville in Tulsa a place to make people happy”
If you love the Margaritaville Casino in Las Vegas, the one that opened Thursday in Tulsa is bigger and better.
If you love Margaritaville Cafe, Landshark Bar and Grill or the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar, the ones opening in Tulsa are larger and more luxurious.
The Margaritaville Casino and Cafe, and many of the amenities that will eventually help serve guests of a 483-room hotel, opened during a star-studded grand opening on Thursday.
The only thing missing was Jimmy Buffett. And officials confirmed Buffett is tentatively scheduled to play the new Paradise Cove Theater at Margaritaville on Jan. 28.
Even though the ribbon has been cut for the casino and assorted bars and restaurants, still under construction are a 27-story hotel, 2,500-seat showroom and expansive pool deck with Margaritaville Tiki Bar and Landshark Landing Bar nestled along the Arkansas River. The “L” shaped pool will be surrounded by 120 loungers and 12 cabanas, and it will include a swim-up pool bar.
All of the resort is scheduled to be finished in January/February of 2017. That’s when Buffett, the music and lifestyle icon to millions of extremely loyal Parrotheads, is scheduled to come back to Tulsa for another ribbon-cutting, opening celebration.
