Eldorado Reno is a hotel and casino in Reno, Nevada. It anchors a network of connected hotel-casinos in the downtown Reno core that included Circus Circus Reno and Silver Legacy Reno and are owned and operated by Eldorado Resorts.[1]

History[edit]

Don Carano opened the Eldorado in 1973 with 282 guest rooms, two restaurants and 10,000 square feet of gaming space with 200 slots and 12 table games. The Eldorado of 1973 included a lobby, registration area, coffee shop, cocktail lounge, specialty dinner house and gaming area. Also incorporated into the property were a convention room accommodating up to 600 people, a swimming pool and executive suites.[2]

In 1979, the success of the Eldorado Resort Casino prompted what would be the first of many expansions and improvements. Guestrooms were brought to a total of 411 with a further expansion completed in September 1985 adding 20,000 square feet of gaming area and four new restaurants. By 1989 the Eldorado had grown to 817 hotel rooms and boasted its own on-site bakery, pasta and gelato shop and butcher shop. In 1992, the Eldorado added a 10 story parking garage for added convenience to guests.

The completion of another dramatic transformation for the Eldorado happened in 1995. Coinciding with the construction of the Silver Legacy Reno, a 50/50 joint venture between Eldorado Resorts and MGM Resorts International, the Eldorado added a crossover to the new downtown property connected by the first ever micro-brewery in a casino, The Brew Brothers. The exclusive Spa Tower was created, adding 10 floors of luxury accommodations; a 10,175 square foot convention center was opened as well as a 580-seat Broadway-style showroom. A coffee roasting company was added to the list of on-site services and the casino now totaled 78,987 square feet with more than 1,500 slot machines, 55 table games, a keno lounge, full service state-of-the-art race and sportsbook and poker room.[3]

Eldorado Theatre[edit]

The theatre seats 580 and has rotating productions.[4]

The Brew Brothers[edit]

The casino houses an on-site microbrewery, The Brew Brothers, which also operates as a music venue and night club. A second Brew Brothers is planned for Scioto Downs Racino in Columbus, Ohio.[5]
