A Doubleheader Served Straight Up At The Tulalip Resort Casino

Newly Opened Draft Sports Bar and Destination Lounge, Serving Traditional Fare and Handcrafted Cocktails
Tulalip, Washington — The Tulalip Resort Casino has recently added a doubleheader of food and beverage venues. Guests can now enjoy sports themed dishes at “The Draft Sports Bar and Grill” and handcrafted shaken cocktails at the Resort’s “Destination Lounge”.The Draft Sports Bar and Grill

Located adjacent to the hotel lobby, this modern sports themed getaway features a selection of hearty stadium food, specialty craft beers, signature drinks and a deep list of wine offerings.  Natural woods accented with electric blue, yellow and black, frame a 161” x 91” wall matrix of video screens.  An array of smaller flat panel TVs surround the bar, and multi-zoned audio brings to life the full-on action experiences.  The viewer feels placed in the middle of every huddle, scrum, face off, and jump ball.  

Guests can kick off game day with dishes like Curve Ball Shrimp and the Formula 500 Walla Walla Onion Tower. Signature plates include Grand Slam Chili; The Hook Crispy Mahi Mahi Filets and Fries; TKO Mac and Cheese Skillets; and a juicy BBQ Hog Handwich.  No sports bar would be complete without a juicy Hall of Fame Cheeseburger, 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 Fried Seasonal Pie served in an iron skillet with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream; or the Overkill Sundae with peanut butter ice cream, sliced banana, milk chocolate magic shell, rice crispy treat nuggets and toasted peanuts.  Also available is a “Quick Picks” menu which will offer nine signature items from The Draft, for take-out.

The Draft is open Sunday – Saturday from 4pm – 2am, serving the full menu from 4pm – 10pm, and a late night menu from 10pm – 1am.  Quick Picks take-out will be offered daily from 11am – 11pm, starting October 7th.  For more information, visit www.tulalipresort.com.  To make reservations, call The Draft at 360-716-6333, or for Quick Picks to go option call 360-716-633.

Destination Lounge
Candle light and fire inspired the Resort’s new hotel lobby bar “Destination Lounge”.  The atmosphere plays on light through motion and reflection. Small niches are filled with antique mirrors, clustered candles and sconces — which illuminate through gold petals.  A large peninsula three sided fireplace adds movement and echoes a layer of warmth throughout the space.  Large comfortable, high-back banquettes, which line the wall, are adorned with sexy, shimmery gold upholstery and flame red lounge chairs bring the space to life.  Behind the glow of the knife-edged stone bar, is a custom etched antique mirror with a red Salish graphic.  Rich espresso stained wood walls and the herringbone patterned floor wrap the space, while jazz musicians hold center stage on the four high definition televisions.

Resort guests can relax over handcrafted cocktails like the Spicy Cucumber, Moonshine Special, Geo-Mandarin Strawberry, Polka Dot or a new twist on the classic Sazerac.  The appetizer menu features dishes such as Shrimp Thai Basil Pesto Spring Rolls, Cedar Wrapped Salmon Bites and Herb Polenta French Fries.

Destination Lounge is open seven days a week from 4pm – 10pm, offering seasonal appetizers, handcrafted cocktails, and an extensive wine selection by the glass or bottle.  For more information, visit www.tulalipresort.com, or call (360) 716-6000.
