November 17, 2023

The venue now offers 20 dining locations within its casino space.

The Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma has opened five new restaurants in its Durant casino, according to a McAlester News-Capital report. Sky Casino will offer its guests a wide variety of dining options that range from flatbread pizzas to smoked pit BBQ and tacos.

As part of the casino dining updates, the Tribe has partnered with Dallas-based Velvet Taco to bring the restaurant to the venue. The Tribe will operate the other four new restaurants, which include South Hot Chicken, Slush’d, Italia Kitchen and The Pit.

Sky Casino is now home to 20 restaurants and 21 bars.

The Tribe has worked on planning and construction for the past two years. Choctaw Nation Director of Marketing Kaley Green told local news the Tribe is thrilled to debut its five new dining locations.

She commented, “We’re excited to open the five new venues here at the Sky Casino. It’s conveniently located to the parking garage, so you can come straight downstairs. It’s easy access.”

Casino Senior Director of Gaming and Hospitality Jeff Penz echoed similar sentiments and said the destination will continue to focus on providing quality dining to its patrons.

He shared with local news, “We are thrilled to announce the District Food Hall as part of Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant’s incredible dining and nightlife offerings.

“We are committed to continuing to elevate the experience for our guests with new food and drink options and look forward to our partnership with Velvet Taco.”

District Hall hours are 11AM to 10PM, Sunday through Thursday. The location will be open on Fridays and Saturdays from 11AM to midnight.
