The Casino @ Dania Beach Heating Up This Summer

The Casino @ Dania Beach Heating Up This Summer

Top entertainment, Jai-Alai and great food bringing in record crowds

Dania Beach - Sometimes not jumping out to the lead in any race can pay off in the end.

Take The Casino @ Dania Beach as a prime example. While the facility has had its ups and downs through the years - battling the competition for that shrinking entertainment dollar - what has been unfolding since re-opening its doors over the past year plus is impressive.

Taking the best of all worlds, the longtime landmark has finally played on a tremendous location, great weather and the craze that happens to be top flight entertainment and great food.

Featuring 900 Las Vegas style slot machines, a 24 table card room, nationally known recording artists and comedians, simulcast lounge and sports bar, multiple dining options and live Jai-Alai, the Casino @ Dania Beach offers a gaming and entertainment experience like no other in a friendly and fun environment!

“We have been coming here since it was just a jai alai fronton back in the 80’s and 90’s,” Dania Beach resident Colleen Matthews said. “It was tough to watch things go downhill when jai alai was not popular anymore. They tried many ideas, but I have to feel that this is the right combination.”

Indeed, the right combination still includes jai alai and casino gaming, but the emphasis has now been placed on entertainment, food and food trucks. That is something that really has made a splash.

One of the major differences you will find at The Casino @ Dania Beach is the emphasis on food - and plenty of it. The finest buffet, the most talented mixologists, the best burgers and sandwiches in South Florida are under one roof.

Enjoy a spectacular buffet style dining experience in an elegant and tasteful environment. Luxe features a wide selection of delicious specialties meticulously prepared.

Offering a delicious array of burgers, sandwiches and more, The Orange Bear Grill features signature hand-cut fries and smash burgers that are guaranteed to make your mouth water. Plus, there are a full range of appetizers and desserts!

Meet some new friends as well as getting together with sports fans to watch the big games, there is the Sunrise Bar, which offers all your favorite cocktails.

In addition, there is the Sports Bar & Lounge, located on Level 2, behind the Card Room. Whether you want to catch a game or just relax in a beautiful area, this is the spot for you.

Some of the elite headliners include Emmy nominated comic Jon Lovitz, who will be headed to Dania Beach on Saturday, July 15 (8 p.m.) for a show at the Stage 954. The Saturday Night Live veteran is known for his timeless characters including, “Master Thespian,” “Hanukkah Harry,” and “the Devil.” The show is presented in partnership with Full House Entertainment.

“It’s a pleasure to present master comic Jon Lovitz from Stage 954,” said Scott Savin, Chief Executive Officer of The Casino @ Dania Beach. “You know his voice, you know his face. Jon’s talents are un-paralleled. It’s no wonder why Jon Lovitz has been a fixture in comedy for the last thirty years! Get ready for a night of side-splitting fun.”

In addition to his brilliant comic talents showcased on Saturday Night Live for more than five years, Jon Lovitz has also found success on the big screen with roles in blockbuster hits, including “Big,” “The Wedding Singer,” “Rat Race,” “The Producers,” and “Grown Ups 2.” He is also a gifted voice-over actor. He plays the lead voice for “Jay Sherman” in the cult cartoon series, The Critic, and plays multiple characters on The Simpsons. Jon’s numerous appearances on highly rated shows, such as Friends, Seinfeld, Hot in Cleveland, Two and a Half Men and New Girl! have further cemented his place in pop culture.

The comedy show is 21 and over. Tickets start at $20. VIP tables are available for $500 and include seating for four. For more details, visit or call 844.234.SHOW.
