Harrah’s just announced: “Beginning today, Harrah's ™Cherokee Casino and Hotel is serving wine and beer in its restaurants and lounge, and through room service.
“As the hotel undergoes a $633 million expansion, the service of alcohol is a critical next step and a welcome amenity. The recent passage of the alcohol referendum by the Eastern Band of Cherokees, owners of the property, was the first major step in providing alcohol service to Harrah's™ Cherokee guests.
“Wine and beer is now being served at Sycamores on the Creek, Selu Garden, Seven Sisters Lounge, and in guest room accommodations.”
