US – Mohegan Sun spending $15m upgrades

By - 19 April 2022

$15m will be invested on various projects that are now underway and planned at Mohegan Sun and Mohegan Sun Golf Club. By the end of this year, a new 6,500 square-foot VIP Lounge & Bar in Casino of the Earth will open and major renovations to Mohegan Sun’s two most luxurious suites (The Royal Suites) will be completed. Over the stretch of 3-years, significant course improvements will also take place at the award-winning Mohegan Sun Golf Club. Additionally, key updates to Sachem Lounge and the outdoor patio at Summer Entrance will soon begin.

With the aim of launching by late fall of this year, Mohegan Sun has started work on a new VIP Lounge & Bar to be located in Casino of the Earth. World-class architects and longtime Mohegan Sun partners, Rockwell Group, are contracted for this new venue that will stretch 6,500 square-feet and feature dining, a full bar and an alluring fireplace at the center of the venue. Rockwell Group is also working with the Mohegan Tribal cultural department to incorporate Mohegan influenced designs and elements through this new space, located next to BALLO Italian Kitchen & Bar. When complete, the VIP Lounge & Bar will offer a dramatic and elegant atmosphere, creating the backdrop for the perfect night out for Mohegan Sun’s Momentum VIP members. An additional food & beverage offering in Casino of the Earth will also be developed, with more information to be announced soon.

Upon completion of this new Lounge & Bar in Casino of the Earth, Mohegan Sun’s Sachem Lounge will also begin work on a renovation that will refresh and liven up this luxury food & beverage area inside Casino of the Sky.

A full revamp is also underway inside the Royal Suites, which are the two largest and most spectacular suites at the heights of Mohegan Sun’s Sky Tower. More than $3m will be invested on these renovations that will undergo an extensive Fire & Water themed makeover. Both suites will be distinctively different to provide two unique luxury hotel experiences. Royal Suites at Mohegan Sun are 3,500 square-feet and home to two master bedrooms, two Jacuzzis, butler service, a large circular living room, panoramic views of the Thames River and more.

Major improvements are also coming to Mohegan Sun Golf Club (MSGC), the 18-hole Mohegan-owned championship golf course located in Baltic, CT and originally designed by the renowned Geoffrey Cornish. A 3-year multi-phase renovation will implement various redesigns and improvements across the course. More than $1m is also being spent on brand-new John Deere turf equipment, which along with the course renovations, will improve efficiencies on maintenance and labor. Phase 1 is currently focused on eliminating select bunkers, improving dozens more and engaging in selective tree removal to help preserve the integrity of cart paths and improve turf coverage and quality. Replacement trees will also be planted to create more strategic division amongst holes and to sustain the natural beauty of one of the most scenic and enjoyable courses in all of New England. An overarching goal of these renovations is to improve both pace-of-play and the overall golfing experience for all levels of play. Mohegan Sun Golf Club opens for the season on Friday, April 15th.

Furthermore, the partially covered patio outside at Mohegan Sun’s Summer Entrance, where tribute bands are booked throughout the summer as part of Hot Summer Fun, will undergo key upgrades this year and into 2023. Highlights of this project include the additions of a permanent outdoor bar, a deck, a music stage and a re-designed area dedicated to activities and lawn games.

Mohegan Sun will also soon announce exciting new additions to its lineup of restaurants, which currently consists of more than 40 offerings, including the popular TAO Asian Bistro & Lounge which opened last year.
