The Corner Bar is Pechanga’s latest guest enhancement after the March 2018 opening of its $300 million resort expansion. The 30-seat bar anchors the existing high limit gaming area and wraps around to be visible from the property’s Theater Box Office. The space, which previously housed a casino gift shop, takes inspiration from classic, turn of the 20th century dining and entertainment establishments. Designers used darker, heavier materials including dark stained oak, black granite with gold veining and a shimmering black glass overhang above the bar to reflect the dazzle of the casino lights. Each element contrasts with plush mohair and textured walls. The materials evoke the lustrous finishes of the often-exclusive restaurants and music halls of yesteryear.
“The vibe of the Corner Bar is different than any other at Pechanga,” said Jared Munoa, Pechanga development corporation president. “We incorporated a new motif with materials that aren’t so common throughout the property, giving it a very sophisticated yet casual feel. It’s a great place for people-watching and the guests are loving it so far.”
