7 Cedars sets remodel, new restaurant

With the start of a new year, 7 Cedars Casino has begun a major remodel of its lobby, gift shop and specific dining venue areas. Construction will include the relocation of the gift shop, new floor tile, new unisex bathrooms and a new private dining area available for larger groups and gatherings.

The existing Salish Room Restaurant will be transformed in to the casino’s newest dining venue, The House of Seven Brothers. Construction is slated to be completed by late spring 2018.

During construction, all other dining venues — the Totem Bar & Grille, Napolis Stone-Fired Cuisine & Deli and The RainForest Bar — as well as all gaming and entertainment venues will remain open.

After nearly 23 years of food service, the Salish Room Restaurant closed Dec. 31.
