Kickapoo wanted to convert a non-performing 1,300 sf steak house into a warm and welcoming Mexican restaurant which kept customers close to the gaming floor.
Design & Planning
A floor-to-ceiling renovation upgraded every customer-facing area while adding a new dedicated bar to service the restaurant. The “Azul” motif was maintained throughout the venue, with integrated blue accent lighting and wall decor. Floating latilla-like decor brought new interest to the otherwise empty ceiling.
Build & Install
Onsite implementation included general conditions, oversite and coordination of site activity, and overall project management. The custom wall murals, lighting, and decor were produced offsite before being installed in the new venue. Dynamic lighting, integrated into the overhead decor structures, provided the ability to adjust the ambiance in the restaurant based on the time of day, holidays, or special events in the restaurant.
The project took just 6 weeks to execute before the venue was opened to casino customers and staff, and the completed casual dining venue is a great addition to the dining and gaming experience at Kickapoo Casino. The results at Azul have been excellent, in both the impact this project created for the property and in customer feedback.
