The Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee this week announced new plans to do a $100 million renovation of the third floor of its facility, bringing new casino gaming experiences and food to patrons.

The renovation will bring more than 1,800 slot machines, a bar with 28 bar-top slot seats, various 4K TVs, cashier stations, club booths, and more. The project is expected to be completed by the spring of next year. Among the dining highlights will be a Starbucks as well as a restaurant named Rock & Brews, which is operated and owned by KISS band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.

The property is being designed by architectural firm I-5, and Gilbane Building Services will be serving as the site's contractor.

The resort currently boasts a large hotel, bingo room, poker room, more than 2,500 slots, and an off-track horseracing betting area.

Regarding the renovations, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino CEO Dominic Ortiz said, "Since opening more than 30 years ago, Potawatomi Hotel & Casino has made it a priority to evolve and meet the needs of our guests. Not only will this elevate the brand, it will further our long-standing status as the premier entertainment destination in the region as the market becomes significantly more competitive. This is just the beginning. Additional exciting changes and new amenities are in store. The best is truly yet to come."
