Hard Rock Casino Vancouver (formerly Boulevard Casino) in Coquitlam, British Columbia is the largest casino in the province of British Columbia by gaming space. The casino is open 24 hours a day, is owned by Great Canadian Gaming, and features:
- 80,000 sq ft (7,400 m2) casino
- 1000 slot machines
- 70 table games including blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, etc.
- Poker room (12 tables)
- High-limit room with 6 tables for baccarat
- 1,600-vehicle 6-level parkade
According to their 2006-07 annual report, Boulevard Casino was the third most profitable gaming venue in B.C., bringing in more than $158 million for the year (up $28.9 million over the previous year). The increase is attributed to the new show theatre, where the casino sees up to 5,000 guests on show nights.
The funding agreement with the province means the casino must give 10% of its net take to the city of Coquitlam. In 2010 Coquitlam received $8.2 million, which the city put into a community group fund and into major capital projects, such as the new Chimo Aquatic and Fitness Centre in 2008, the Percy Perry Stadium renovation in 2009, the Coquitlam Sports Centre renovation in 2010, and the new City Centre Public Library in 2011.
The casino announced they will be going under renovations while operating and will rebrand itself as Hard Rock Casino Vancouver by late 2013. The rebrand occurred on December 20, 2013.
As part of the 2006 expansion, the new 1,074-seat The Theatre was opened on-site. The casino features seven additional food and drink venues, including:
- Asylum (Bar/Restaurant with Stage)
- Unlisted (Lounge/Restaurant)
- Stake (Upscale Restaurant)
- Fu Express (QSR - Asian Cuisine)
- Chip's (QSR - Gourmet Sandwiches)
- Roadies' (QSR - Gourmet Burgers)
- Fuel Cafe (QSR - Coffee and Snacks)
