Project Cypress is the new plan announced by the Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel to complete $20 million in renovations and expansion to the casino gaming and hotel property. Over the next year, the property will see updates to the gaming floor, restaurant dining and shopping venues.
The Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel General Manager and CEO, Anthony Patrone, stated that the opportunity for expansion and renovation will spring them forward to the next level and give the property the ability to offer the same level of quality but with a newer and modern feel. 70% of the project will be spent in the region, helping the casino to invest in the local economy.
With the new renovations, the casino will be adding a new dining experience at Café Delphines, which will be replacing Café Bayou. A new gift shop will be added, titled Bizzute’s and an additional dining facility called Mabel’s will offer quick service dining including sandwiches, salads and hamburgers. The casino floor will include updates to the gaming floor as well as a high limit area added. With the property’s hotel, there will be an expansion with the hotel pool which will include a bar, lazy river and cabanas poolside.
The Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana is the owner and operator of the property, with Chairman O’Neil Darden, stating that the tribe is proud of the growth of the enterprises. The Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel has proven to be a business that provides jobs for Acadiana residents and the tribe is excited about the expansion. Darden stated that the continued growth of the casino allows the tribe to give back to the community, something the tribe looks forward to doing for many years to come.
