Nightlife in our city could be a lot different in the near future.
Penny Lane Entertainment has announced along with the construction of Cowboys Dance Hall, Melrose Cafe and Bar will join the highly anticipated Cowboys Casino located at 12th Avenue and Olympic Way southeast.
President Paul Vickers tells 660News this complex will be the first of its kind in Canada.
“If were going to do something, were going to do something that we can be proud of and were going to make a statement to the city of Calgary and the province of Alberta and in fact I think the country of Canada because nobody in Canada has a facility like this. I mean you can walk into Melrose with a beer, walk out of Melrose and into Cowboys with a beer,” Vickers says.
Cowboys Casino will also include Zen 8 grill and state of the art concert and corporate events venue.
Vickers says they are looking to hire 750 people for jobs like service staff, card dealers, marketing, accounting and management.
He also expects Cowboys and Melrose will be ready in time for the Calgary Stampede.
