College basketball fans can enjoy the action of all of the games this March at the new Plaza Event Center, a nearly 5,000 sq. ft. special event space at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, which is celebrating its official grand opening with a March Mania Viewing Party Thursday, March 16 through Sunday, March 19.
Located adjacent to the casino floor, the Plaza Event Center offers 18 large screen HD televisions, two projectors and a state-of-the-art sound system to offer the ultimate sports event party location and one of the best viewing experiences in the city. For the March Mania Viewing Party, guests will enjoy stadium style food and drinks with comfortable seating options so groups, large and small, can mix and mingle while watching the basketball games.
The new Plaza Event Center is a multipurpose space that can accommodate approximately 200 guests in a variety of flexible seating options. With two stages, the Plaza Event Center will also host live entertainment for audiences of up to 300 people.
Available for private parties, such as conferences and corporate events, the space compliments the Plaza’s existing 30,000 sq. ft. of ballroom and meeting space. Food and beverage options are provided by the Plaza’s in-house catering team.
“The Plaza continues to welcome more groups and special events,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “The new Plaza Event Center allows us to offer a fun, flexible space for smaller events, like viewing parties and live entertainment, and supplements our existing convention space providing larger groups who want to take over the entire property with another venue for their programs. The Plaza continues to diversify its amenities and offerings to meet the needs of its customers, and the Plaza Event Center is just the latest addition that will enhance the overall guest experience.”
Admission to the Plaza’s March Mania Viewing Party is $15 for a One-Day Pass or $40 for a Four-Day Pass (plus taxes and fees). Each admission pass includes a commemorative shirt and one complimentary drink and food item per day. Tickets are on sale at www.plazahotelcasino.com/entertainment/march-mania/, at the Casino Box Office, or by calling 702-386-2507.
