DURANT, Okla., (May 26, 2021) – In anticipation for our summer expansion grand opening, Choctaw Casino & Resort-Durant is launching two of its many new amenities in June! The Reserve, an upscale craft cocktail bar and the first of two next-generation Starbucks® are exciting new luxury amenities offered for both residents and guests alike.

“Over the past two years, Choctaw Casino & Resort-Durant and our partners have been devoted to elevating the resort and casino experience to bring new offerings to southeastern Oklahoma,” states Bryan Prettyman, Regional Director of Marketing. “We’re excited for the opportunity to add many new amenities as we get ready to unveil our latest expansion project this August.”

The Reserve

Our new bar sets an inviting tone at Choctaw Casino & Resort-Durant. Located in the north casino, raise your glass for a one-of-a-kind experience at The Reserve.  The venue will include custom crafted cocktails, a vast array of select whiskeys and other libations that is sure to be a hit once open in June.


Choctaw Casino & Resort–Durant is excited to provide guests with two Starbucks® locations inside the property this summer. Both cafés will be the first and only locations currently located inside a casino in Oklahoma and the first in Durant, Okla. Each will feature next-generation store design and will offer hand-crafted beverages, premium teas and delectable treats. The first café will open in June, the second in August to coincide with the grand opening.

Following the grand opening, the casino & resort will bring a completely new level of fun and entertainment to our guests as we expand our gaming floor, add two new retail venues, two additional movie theaters and two new pools, making it one of the largest casinos in the southwest.
