Cooking studio and spa are coming attractions at Wind Creek casino complex at Atmore
The casino and hotel, which opened last month, are central to Wind Creek, a 17-story glass structure on a 35-acre site off I-65 in Atmore.
But plans, management says, include much more than fine dining and a first-class place to rest your head after playing one of 1,600 electronic gaming machines in a 225,000-square-foot casino.
The Cooking Studio at Wind Creek, featuring Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, is scheduled to open in July, and will offer cooking demonstrations and hands-on classes from Wind Creek chefs. You can book the cooking studio for an event, as well, with a chef as your host.
The 2,000-seat Amphitheater at Wind Creek, which will overlook a “lake feature,” is scheduled to open in July, too. The Spa at Wind Creek, “where you can lose yourself in treatments that are `comfort food’ for the body and mind,” should be ready for business then as well. And they’re not kidding about the food part. Spa offerings will include chocolate body wraps, vanilla butter massages and Cabernet Sauvignon baths.
The hotel includes 236 rooms, with down duvets, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi, as well as 42 to-die-for suites and villas (with nine-head showers).
All of which is transforming this southern Alabama town.
“I was born and raised here,” says Lori Sawyer, a tribe member and advertising and public relations director for PCI gaming, which operates Wind Creek. “I moved away for three years, lived in D.C. Now I can live here and have meaningful employment.”
