Red Hawk Casino has been one of the most popular casinos in Northern California ever since it opened in 2008. Both stylish and lively, this casino offers all the latest gaming favorites, but that's not all that it is known for. The Red Hawk Casino restaurants offer a divine range of dishes to suit virtually every taste, and complementing the restaurants are four different bars. One of the bars features an open environment that lends itself well to concerts, only adding to the Red Hawk Casino California entertainment options. There's no admission fee if you want to see a concert at the Stage Bar, which is reason enough to drop by when looking for area nightlife ideas.
At the Red Hawk Casino, visitors have 2,100 slot machines and 75 table games to choose from. The denominations on the slot machines range from a penny to $100, so you can go small or go big deciding on how lucky you feel. A special high-limits area is reserved for slot machine players who are interested in big time action. As for the table games, you can enjoy a variety of blackjack and poker games, not to mention other games, such as Mystery Card Roulette and Live Card Craps. The high-limits area also features table games for guests who are interested in placing bets of the larger variety. As is true at many California resorts, anyone who is interested in doing some gambling at the Red Hawk Casino can sign up for a free rewards card that offers all kinds of special rewards. The more you play, the more your free club membership will pay you back.
When a break from gambling is in order, you can indulge in the other Red Hawk Casino California entertainment options. The five Red Hawk Casino restaurants combine to offer a complete array of dining options. You can get a juicy steak at the upscale steakhouse, indulge in some Asian cuisine at one of the other eateries, enjoy American and Mexican food favorites at the Mexican-American restaurant, pick up a sandwich or a pastry at the café, or sample the more than 250 different selections at the all you can eat buffet. You can earn points through the casino rewards club that can be used for comps at the Red Hawk Casino restaurants. It is also worth noting that the Mexican-America restaurant offers enticing food and drink deals on Friday evenings between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Getting some drinks at one of the bars is also an option when it comes to Red Hawk Casino California entertainment. Weekend nights are when live music is typically offered in one of the bars. If you're looking for a different scene, the upscale bar at the steakhouse can be an excellent place to get a glass of wine or a cocktail, and sports fans can catch the big game and play some video poker at the sports bar. Rounding out the bars at the Red Hawk Casino is the bar in the high limits area. As you might imagine, you can get a premium cigar to go with your top shelf liquor at the high-limits bar. With entertainment options like these, it's not hard to see why many Sacramento area residents keep the Red Hawk Casino on the nightlife radar.
Unlike some of the other Northern California casinos, such as the Thunder Valley Casino, the Red Hawk Casino doesn't offer lodging. That being said, there are plenty of hotels in the area should you be looking for nearby accommodations. It's a short drive from Sacramento, so you can choose from the Sacramento hotels. Placerville hotels like the Best Western Placerville and the historic Cary House Hotel are even closer, and it's not far from the Lake Tahoe area and its outdoor attractions as well, such as Eldorado National Forest.
