Casino Club Colonial celebrates 30th Anniversary
In 1982, when Costa Rica’s casino industry was just being born, Casino Club Colonial set up operations in the center of San José, where it still operates today, in a complex known as “Casa Colonial.”
In 1996, the casino expanded its facilities, offering guests a bigger space and plenty of new entertainment options, including poker tables, slot machines, two bars and Magnolia Restaurant.
One year earlier, the company opened the Hotel Paseo Las Damas. Organized under the collective Grupo Colonial, all of these services continue operating today, as the company celebrates its 30th anniversary.
In late September, Grupo Colonial celebrated with a huge party that included buffet dinner, live music, raffle prizes and the chance to win a Kia Sportage 2012, which will be given away on Dec. 8.
For more information or to help Casino Club Colonial celebrate its anniversary, call 2258-2807 or visit www.casinoclubcolonial.com. Casino Club Colonial is located in downtown San José, on Avenida 1, between Calles 9 and 11.
