Full House Resorts, Inc. announced that it intends to open its newest gaming destination – The Temporary by American Place – on Friday, February 17, 2023, subject to customary regulatory approvals. The opening festivities are expected to begin with a private VIP reception at 5:00 p.m. At approximately 8:00 p.m., Chicagoland’s newest gaming destination will open to the public.
Conveniently located approximately 30 minutes north of O’Hare International Airport, The Temporary by American Place is the only casino in Lake County, Illinois. The property’s interior design draws inspiration from “a day at the lake,” with lush greenery and boat paddles above the approximately 1,000 slot machines and 50 table games in the casino. At the Canoe Bar, located at the center of the casino, guests can enjoy signature cocktails under a unique chandelier fashioned from actual canoes. The Temporary also features L’Américain, a restaurant that celebrates the diverse traditions of American cooking, and Asia-Azteca, offering Asian and Latin cuisine. North Shore Steaks & Seafood, opening in April, will offer a high-end dining experience. Within the casino, two modified Airstream trailers will offer craft beer brewed locally, salads, paninis, sandwiches, and custom coffee and espresso drinks. At night, projection mapping equipment will transform The Temporary’s exterior into a large-scale art display.
“We thank the Illinois Gaming Board and its staff for their assistance throughout The Temporary’s construction and preparation,” said Daniel R. Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Full House Resorts. “I also want to thank our own team of approximately 500 founding employees, who have worked diligently to prepare us for this exciting moment. We are eager to welcome Chicagoland residents to The Temporary beginning on February 17.”
