Buffett to perform in Tulsa in Jan 2017

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.

Margaritaville Tulsa to open on Thursday 8/25

From Tulsa World: “Margaritaville promises to be ‘big, really big’ for Tulsa

Just inside the Margaritaville hotel’s cavernous front lobby, with an elegant check-in desk on one side and a concierge station on the other, Pat Crofts was watching video footage on a giant TV screen — 50 feet across and 16 feet tall, from the floor to the ceiling.

It was showing glitzy images of London and the Rocky Mountains and other “travel destinations” around the world. But later this week, it will be showing newly edited shots of Tulsa. Because on Thursday, when the public gets to walk past this big screen for the first time, Tulsa is going to be the travel destination, pulling tourists from across the region if not across the country.

“Tulsa doesn’t know what’s about to hit it,” Crofts said, silhouetted against the screen’s flickering light. “I mean, this is going to be big. Really big.”

With a 27-story glass tower overlooking the Arkansas River near 81st Street, the finished resort will include a 483-room hotel with a tropical theme unlike anything else in Tulsa, featuring poolside cabanas, palm trees, fire pits and a Margaritaville “Tiki Bar.” Turn left from the main entrance, and the hallway leads to the existing River Spirit Casino. Turn right and it leads to the new 50,000-square-foot Margaritaville casino and restaurant with Jimmy Buffett’s “fun-in-the-sun” aesthetic — a volcano erupts lava into a giant blender while a seaplane swoops low over the dining room.

The hotel won’t open until December; the theater and the outdoor area next to the river won’t be ready until 2017.

“People are blown away by what they’ve seen already,” said Senior Program Manager Randall Hull, who led the tour. “But they haven’t seen everything yet. Just wait.”
