Coming late summer 2013: Tulalip Resort Casino’s The Draft Sports Bar & Grill, a premiere sports bar destination to grab a drink, great American food and watch major sporting events from all over the world on large screen HDTVs. Located adjacent to the hotel lobby, this comfortable and modern sports getaway will feature a selection of craft beers, wines by the glass and signature cocktails along with hearty, flavorful food to pair with it.
The Draft will “sport” stepped natural woods accented with electric blue, gold and black, creating a dramatic backdrop for the 161 x 91 wall matrix of video screens. Other smaller video arrays will also surround the bar, and audio will be multi-zoned, providing a live action experience that places the viewer in the middle of every huddle, scrum, face-off, and jump ball.
While guests relax and unwind with friends, they can enjoy The Draft Jumbo Wing Board (select from among six dipping sauces) or one of four “Torpedo” sandwiches like the Uli’s Jagerwurst Sausage. Signature The Draft dishes will include the Grand Slam Chili; hand-filled, bacon wrapped, jalapeno “Poppers;” Mahi Mahi Fish and Chips; TKO Mac and Cheese Skillets (offering 3 cheesy options); and a juicy BBQ Hog “Handwich.” Of course, no sports bar would be complete without a juicy half-pound chuck burger and Executive Chef Perry Mascitti will offer the “Construction Site,” where guests design their own. When both the finish line and the finish of the meal are in sight, fans can cruise the “Sweet Victory” dessert menu of bold, sassy confections, sure to make everyone feel like a winner.
“Consider yourself drafted!” said Director of Food & Beverage, Lisa Severn. “That’s how you will feel when you experience Tulalip Resort Casino’s newest venue with its large custom collage paintings, celebrating our Northwest teams and legends. The Draft feels like an urban pub, infused with new technology that reaches beyond the expectations of a common sports bar. We can’t wait to welcome guests in, so they can bask in the complete experience.”
The Draft Sports Bar & Grill will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Guests will be able to order from the late night menu after 10 p.m. until closing. For those needing to dine on the go, The Draft will also offer the “Quick Picks” option.
Additionally on the Resort’s culinary horizon is the Lobby Bar; Journeys East restaurant featuring time honored traditional Asian recipes; and a new steakhouse menu at Tulalip Bay.
