The McBride Company, a creative concept and design firm specializing in hospitality and leisure destinations, has completed the design of the Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant at River Spirit Casino Resort in Oklahoma. The new 60,000-square-foot Margaritaville venue opened to the public in August 2016.
River Spirit Casino Resort engaged The McBride Company to design the Margaritaville Casino and Restaurant as part of the Tulsa destination’s ongoing expansion project. The design firm’s work included Margaritaville brand and art direction, the interior design, signage and graphics and specialty feature design of the casino and restaurant.
The new Margaritaville Casino represents one of the largest casino build-outs completed under the Margaritaville brand to date. The unique design allows natural light into the casino and offers a view of the Arkansas River.
Highlights of the casino interior design include white-washed millwork and orange palm leaf wall covering, as well as sections of LED backlit panels separated by mullions to suggest a tropical environment outdoors. The LED panels feature palm tree graphics designed by The McBride Company as part of the extensive signage and graphics program.
The McBride Company also designed several signature Margaritaville elements, including a “volcano stage,” which features running water and a volcano show that triggers every hour with A/V and sound effects.
For more than 30 years, The McBride Company has cultivated experiences that become hospitality and leisure destinations enjoyed by millions. The McBride Company provides a wide range of services including conceptual design, architecture, interior design, graphic design, special feature design, art direction, and strategic planning.
