Speaking to KTUL, John Shaw, the General Manager of Osage Casino & Hotel – Bartlesville, said: “It’s been a long time coming. We actually started construction, you know, a little over two years ago and because of COVID and different things, it took a lot longer than normal.”
Principal Chief of the Osage Nation Geoffrey Standing Bear, added: “This will greatly benefit, not only the Osage Nation but also the entertainment industry in Bartlesville and the surrounding area. Anyone wanting to experience premiere gaming, dining and entertainment will have a convenient location to do so right here in Bartlesville. We are grateful for the hard work and perseverance by Osage Casino and Hotel leadership, employees, and our partners in construction to get this new location up and running.”
Osage Casinos Chief Executive Officer Kimberly Pearson added: “Bartlesville is an economic driver for our state. This new casino helps us support our Nation as well as the thriving business community in the area. We are grateful for our partners along the way that helped create an entertainment venue that will be a hub for business and fun in Bartlesville.”
Osage Casino and Hotel recently opened in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, with 47 hotel rooms, a full-service restaurant, 259 slot machines, and over 3,000 square feet of event space.
