The new restaurants and venues are part of a $100 million expansion that has been underway at the casino. The new venues include CBK, Shkodé Chophouse, & a revamped 131 Sportsbar & Lounge.

The lounge will be home to live music moving forward and local superstars and national recording artist Wayland will help christen the venue with two live performances on the 17th. The first performance will be an acoustic show at 6pm and a full electric set later that night at 9pm.

Both shows are free but you must register in advance and can do so here:

The tribal casino announced the two new dining concepts and entertainment space back in April.

Shkodé will be a high end seafood and steakhouse concept. Artisan cocktails will compliment the locally sourced menu.

Shkodé, the Pottawatomi word for fire, honors Gun Lake Casino’s heritage through its attention to flavor and quality with locally sourced and freshly harvested ingredients. Indulge your senses with our flame-grilled steak and seafood or our fresh take on American cuisine. Enjoy one of our artisan-crafted cocktails or a selection from our thoughtfully curated wine list as you soak in the vibrant atmosphere of Shkodé. The place you’ve been waiting for.

CBK (Craft, Bar, Kitchen) will fit in nicely with the West Michigan beer scene and feel much like the high-end breweries you usually have to travel into downtown Grand Rapids to enjoy.

Grab a pint, or two, of some of the best locally crafted beer at CBK. With over 100 different brews stacked in our mighty keg cave, you’re sure to find the perfect blend of malt and hops. We don’t just serve beer though, we specialize in craft cocktails, gourmet burgers, homemade sausage, and farm-to-table dishes. So pour yourself a pint and join us around our outdoor fire pit for good bites and great times.

131 Sports Bar & Lounge is the place to catch a game after placing a couple of bets at the sportsbook. The venue will also be home to live DJs and performances.

Whether you have money on the big game or are just enjoying a few drinks with your friends, our upbeat and lively atmosphere at 131 Sports Bar & Lounge is your place to unwind and get in on all the sporting action! Feel like you’re on the sidelines with our floor-to-ceiling LED video walls and 180° panoramic views. With over 28 million pixels and 1,000 square feet of HD viewing surface, live entertainment, margs on tap, and our modern twist to bar food and bites, we’re your place for nonstop action, great food, and unforgettable nights out.
