Red Parrot Lounge

As part of the total property remodel for Casino Pauma, I-5 Design was asked to create a lounge design that would bring a new personality to the gaming floor. The Casino was looking to create an intimate area within the gaming floor where patrons can step away from the action to relax.

Our Approach


I-5's team continued the property's overall theme in the Red Parrot Lounge design, using an orange grove motif for décor accents. Other consistent materials were also employed, including stone and wood veneers. The new beam elements created a dramatic entrance to the lounge, and featured tapered, stone columns and an impressive structure of arching wood beams overhead. A new double-sided, internally illuminated back bar integrated specialty etched metal, finished in jewel-tone red which made the lounge unmistakably visible from all sides of the gaming floor.


As part of the signage structure, two flanking stained glass-style windows, depicting orange trees were internally illuminated for maximum impact. Programmable color-changing LED lighting hidden in the new ceiling structure, washes a vivid purple-hue over the entire area. The lighting, when combined with the amber glow of the chandeliers, creates a comfortable, intimate ambience. The custom designed and fabricated chandeliers are constructed with two-toned mica panels inset into an old world iron style frame. Rounded steps with decorative railings at the entrance of the Lounge gracefully lift the venue from the rest of the gaming area.


As part of the overall decor package, the Red Parrot Lounge was designed, manufactured and installed by I-5 Design.


 I-5′s ability to produce precision-engineered elements in-house, working in tandem with the design team, provided a major advantage in delivering the project on schedule for the client. All pieces were fabricated exactly to specifications, ensuring a smooth installation on-site. I-5 managed all implementation, resulting in a seamless process from design through completion.


Red Parrot Lounge was completed as part of a facility-wide renovation, and creates a low-key, highly sophisticated venue for patrons to step away from the excitement of the gaming floor, while remaining immersed in the welcoming ambience of Casino Pauma.

This project was performed in sequence with the new Triple Seven Bar, a Noodle Bar area, an all new Buffet and Cafe, overall upgrades to the Gaming Floor, and an all-new Port Cochere. Each component was compelted ahead of schedule and on-budget for Casino Pauma.


Casino Pauma is a highly satisfied I-5 customer, witnessing a dramatic resurgence in guest traffic upon completion of its stunning property-wide renovation. Visit the Casino Pauma portfolio page to see the entire Casino Remodel.
