Baton Rouge Mayor-President Melvin 'Kip' Holden proclaimed September 1 st as L'Auberge Baton Rouge Day in an official proclamation presented during Saturday's opening ceremony. Mayor Holden said, "Pinnacle Entertainment chose to make this significant investment in East Baton Rouge Parish and we look forward to working with them and their employees as they become another great asset in promoting our city as a great place to live and visit."

The economic impact of L'Auberge will be immediate with more than 1,000 new jobs created and anticipated annual tax impact of more than $50 million. U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu said, "The opening of Pinnacle's fourth statewide location is exciting news for Baton Rouge and all of Louisiana." She adds, "Pinnacle has a strong record as a good community partner in this state. They have contributed millions to local charities, created thousands of permanent jobs and made strong investments in our economy. I welcome the arrival of L'Auberge Baton Rouge and thank Pinnacle for their continued commitment and support to the people of Louisiana."

Louisiana Lt. Governor Jay Dardenne, whose office oversees tourism in the State, voiced his support for the region's newest tourism destination. Dardenne said, "With the opening of L'Auberge comes more than 1,000 new hospitality jobs for Louisiana. We are happy to have L'Auberge as part of Louisiana's already burgeoning lodging and entertainment landscape." Pinnacle Entertainment now employs more than 5,000 team members statewide and has more than one billion dollars invested in Louisiana.

L'Auberge Baton Rouge provides a best-in-market casino entertainment complex featuring an expansive single-level, 74,000 square foot casino; nearly 1,500 slot machines; 50 table games, including a poker room; a 12-story hotel with 205 guest rooms and a rooftop pool; four dining outlets; a unique casino entertainment lounge with breathtaking views of the Mississippi River; 2,400 total parking spaces, including 800 in a covered parking garage; a multi-purpose event center with concert seating for over 1,500 people or banquet seating for up to 800 people; and outdoor festival grounds with capacity for up to 2,500.
