The Sands Casino Resort was built on the land of the old Bethlehem Steel Company and is managed by the Las Vegas-based Sands corporation. Since it’s $26 million expansion in 2009, the Casino now features tons of gaming options including a 30-table poker room, 200 table games, and over 3,000 slot machines. Guests can also enjoy Craps, Baccarat, Pai Gow, Big Six, Casino War, and much more, so you have tons of chances to win big!
After you’ve enjoyed some risk-taking, feel free to relax and explore Sand’s expansive shopping and dining options. The Outlets at Sands are connected to the property and offer more than 30 luxury-brand stores for guests to peruse. In addition, gourmet restaurants including Chef Emeril Lagasse’s Italian Table, Burgers and More by Emeril, and Emeril’s Chop House are perfect for a delicious meal. Chopstick Restaurant offers a fresh take on classic Asian dishes, and Steelworks Buffet & Grill features interactive live-action cooking. There’s also Carnegie Deli (perfect for a taste of authentic New York cuisine) and Croissanterie and Joli Bakery & Cafe, serving up French artisan breads and pastries. Yum!
For even more after-hours fun, head to one of the casino’s nightlife hotspots and enjoy a few drinks and live music. Four lounges and bars can be found on the property, including Coil Lounge, Infusion Lounge, Molten Lounge, and Vision Bar, and each has its own unique feel and atmosphere.
