For the past year, the events co-ordinator for the Treasure Cove Casino and Hotel has been steadily building a repertoire of acts and events to rival any other venue in the city. Sequestered from the blinking lights and ringing slot machines, the casino’s Show Lounge is a fully kitted out performance space capable of offering unique entertainment experiences. What people may not realize is that Treasure Cove is more than just a place to gamble. “It’s a night out. It’s an entertainment facility, whether your gamble or not,” said Chandler. The offerings have come a long way since she first started working at the gaming facility in 1997, back when it was smoke-filled room in the rear of the Ramada hotel. “You’ve got the restaurant on site, it’s basically a one-stop shop. You can come in, you can have dinner, you can grab a beer, see a show. If you are into gambling you can play. It’s a great social atmosphere.” The show lounge, which can seat 180 for dinner or up to 200 with a theatre-style set up, is already a key spot on the comedy circuit – Brent Butt and Pauly Shore have also both played the room. It can host live bands, such as Econoline Crush and popular tribute acts, murder mysteries and fundraising dinners.
