There’s a brand new entertainment and gambling destination coming to South Florida this weekend. Casino Miami has officially set the date for the grand opening of Club Rio. The entertainment and gambling destination will open its doors on Friday for a soft-launch hosted by DJ Paul E, followed by the highly anticipated grand opening on Saturday, September 13th. Club Rio is kicking off the launch with a massive viewing party for the title-bearing Mayweahther vs. Maidana boxing match.
Local nightlife enthusiasts will also enjoy bottle service and access to a new line-up of popular casino gambling amusements. Club Rio will have electronic blackjack tables, roulette tables and even live poker action occurring alongside the exclusive entertainment venue. And of course, there’s always the 40,000 square foot casino floor already located within Casino Miami for those who want to focus more on wagering.
The Chief Executive Officer of Casino Miami, Dave Jonas, was enthusiastic in his interpretation of what the club will bring to its new and loyal patrons. “Miami’s nightlife reputation is well deserved and we are excited to be a part of it,” said Jonas. He then went on to explain, “Nowhere else in Miami can guests play their favorite table game, enjoy great bottle service and listen to Miami’s hottest DJ’s all under the same roof – CLUB RIO delivers that unique experience.”
Located adjacent to Casino Miami’s live poker room, Club Rio is expecting a huge turn-out for its official grand opening this Saturday. To kick off the party, they will host a viewing party for the highly anticipated WBA and WBC welterweight title boxing match between Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. and Marcos “Chino” Maidana. The fight will be broadcast live via pay-per-view from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV where Mayweather is looking to defend his WBC championship against the younger and arguably more agile Maidala for the second time in four months. In their previous match, Mayweather snagged the WBA title that he’ll also be defending this weekend.
The boxing match viewing party will being at 8:00pm on Saturday, followed by the entertainment of DJ Vinni Soul until 3:00am.
