ELK GROVE, CA – The Humidor at Sky River Casino has opened, making Sky River the first casino in the Sacramento region to offer a dedicated bourbon and cigar lounge. With this latest addition, Sky River Casino is home to a total of 18 bars, restaurants, and lounge destinations as well as numerous options in The Market.

“In making our future growth and development plans, we are always looking for opportunities to further our goal of making Sky River Casino the premier entertainment destination in the Sacramento Valley,” said Jesus Tarango, Chairman of the Wilton Rancheria Tribe. “The first of its kind in the region, The Humidor, is a beautiful reflection of this outlook. We look forward to inviting our guests to enjoy rare and specialty bourbons alongside premium cigars from around the world in an elegant and refined setting.”

With a luxurious and welcoming décor highlighted by an impressive walk-in humidor, bourbon and whiskey drinkers can enjoy more than 50 rare and allocated spirits and popular brands from Macallan, Pappy Van Winkle Family, WhistlePig, and Louis XIII. For cigar enthusiasts, brands such as Davidoff Anniversary No. 2, Montecristo Platinum and E.P. Carillo Pledge are also offered at The Humidor. Tasting events, roll demos and special member events will take place periodically inside The Humidor.

Facenda, Sky River Casino President. “We pride ourselves on our wide range of elevated offerings highlighted by lively gaming, amazing culinary options, and relaxing environments so guests can play and savor new experiences.”
