Give Dad a cool, refreshing mountain experience this Father’s Day at Monarch Casino Resort Spa

Jun 17, 2021

Searching for a Father’s Day gift this year doesn’t have to be a headache: ditch the doldrums of golf! Give up on the gift cards! This year, give Dad an experience he’ll never forget and let your Father’s Day take flight at Monarch Casino Resort Spa! 

Begin in Black Hawk’s newest poker room, located on the first floor with a convenient Main Street entrance, where you can finally settle who has the best poker face in the family! Something tells us it won’t take Dad long to get the feel for the felt and take down a few big pots playing no-limit Texas Hold Em’, Omaha Hi-Lo or Stud.   

After Dad’s big hand, place a wager on his favorite baseball team with the BetMonarch mobile app or in person at the Monarch sports betting desk, featuring Colorado’s only in-house-owned sportsbook.  Once his bets are placed, TwentyFour-7 is the place to be to enjoy some of Colorado’s best craft beer while cheering on his favorite team. 

Answer the question “Where do we take Dad for a great meal?” Easy, it’s the Monarch Buffet, winner of Westword Readers Choice Best bottomless brunch award. Whether it’s brunch or dinner, tempt Dad’s tastebuds with cuisine inspired by the rustic coast of New England, Far East Asia, Europe and the classic comfort flavors of home too! 

Or, treat Dad to this year’s top-shelf experience at the Monarch Chophouse. This is that place that bagged five stars on TripAdvisor and landed Denver Westword Readers choice for best steakhouse and hotel restaurant. Even the pickiest pops will be impressed by the refined menu of craft cocktails, including a tobacco-infused old-fashioned, and the tableside-prepared Steak Diane.

Whether Dad wants to stay all weekend or just play for the afternoon, Monarch Casino Resort Spa is a short and easy 45-minute drive west of Denver through Colorado’s breathtaking and refreshingly cool high country. He will get a VIP experience from the moment you self-park in Monarch’s state-of-the-art parking garage and start planning your next trip back to Colorado’s premier gaming resort destination.
