JA Nugget Undergoes $50 Million in Renovations

Posted: Updated:

John Ascuaga's Nugget is one of the largest employers in Sparks and they say they plan to become even bigger and better.

Construction walls went up this week and they aren't wasting any time moving forward.

They're using about 50 local subcontractors now and plan to expand their current staff for their new projects; they say Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall and Bar-B-Que alone will need 50-70 employees.

Gilley's will open June first and their other renovations like the sports book will be open in August.

And if you're worried about the pan roast in the Oyster Bar - don't be! "Lots of folks are worried about changes at the Oyster Bar, we are changing the carpet, but the pan roast will be the same!" says Nugget President & CEO Carlton Geer.

Two days ago casino officials announced it would close Basque and Mediterranean restaurant, Restaurante Orozko, this Sunday night.

The Steakhouse Grill and The Rotisserie Buffet will now be open 7 days a week.

John Ascuaga's Nugget was sold to Global Gaming & Hospitality last fall.
