Best casino nights in and around Paso Robles
Forget the night clubs or the movie theaters. If you really want to enjoy a sophisticated night out and rock your tuxedo, or your little black dress as the case may be, there’s really no substitute for a night at the casino. Blackjack, roulette, 3-card poker and baccarat are all casino staples that are easy to play and don’t demand an immense bankroll as long as you stay clear of the high roller tables.
Best of all, there is a great choice of venues in and around Paso Robles where you can try your luck and be assured of a great night out, regardless of whether or not lady luck shines upon you.
Your armchair at home
Before we head out of the front door and either argue over who’s driving or spend money on a cab, take a seat and pull out your phone. Maybe the casino could come to you! Online casino gaming has never been more popular, and although there are no operators within California, there are dozens of offshore casino platforms that will welcome you.
For trouble-free and instantaneous transactions, a cash app casino gives you the opportunity to play using Bitcoin. It’s well worth considering, as let’s face it, if you should be lucky enough to score a big win, you don’t want to be waiting around for days before you can withdraw it!
Paso Robles Casino
Back in the physical world, Paso Robles casino on Black Oak Drive just to the west of Route 101 is a small, friendly brew pub that guarantees a warm welcome, great food, imaginative cocktails and a range of casino games.
It’s not the Bellagio, so don’t expect lines and lines of slot games, but all the best table games are there, including blackjack, Texas Holdem and three card poker. There are regular tournaments pitched at all skill levels, so whether you’re a complete novice or the next Daniel Negreanu, there will be something to suit.
Central Coast Casino
A 45 minute drive takes you from downtown Paso Robles to the resort town of Grover Beach. Central Coast casino is on West Grand Avenue, and while it might not look particularly salubrious from the outside, you will be wowed by the friendly welcome and a fantastic gaming experience.
The facility is owned by former WSOP star David Stearns and his wife Theresa, so it should come as no surprise that Texas Holdem and Pot Limit Omaha are the orders of the day. Theresa also comes up with some fabulous creations in the kitchen, which are served to players free of charge. What’s not to love?
Outlaws Card Parlor
Closer to home, Outlaws is in Atascadero, a 15 minute drive from Paso Robles south on Route 101. Blackjack and poker are both available, and tournaments are regular events. The attached restaurant serves the most amazing steaks, so remember to bring your appetite along. There’s also a light bites menu and a well-stocked bar.
