TONKAWA — A groundbreaking ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon at the Tonkawa Hotel and Casino on I-35 in Kay County for a new HUB Entertainment Center.
The HUB will feature bowling, an arcade room, e-gaming lounge, movies, meeting rooms for parties and events and a sports bar. The entertainment center will be connected to the current casino off exit 214 in Tonkawa.
The HUB plans to open in the spring of 2021. Phillip Glass, CEO of Tonkawa Enterprises, is thrilled with the expansion. “We are excited to bring more entertainment to the northern Oklahoma community.”
“We are proud to expand the enterprises for the Tonkawa Tribe, as well as bring more jobs to the area. The HUB will be a great place for kids, adults and families,” said Glass.
Glass said the HUB will offer bowling leagues, kid and adult birthday parties, adult or corporate meeting space, e-gaming tournaments and a place to grab a bite to eat while watching sports.
The casino currently offers over 500 electronic games, the Buffalo Grill and Lounge and a hotel with an outdoor pool.
