If you’re looking for the perfect event space for this year’s holiday party or maybe you have a special event on the horizon in 2016, you should start considering the Empire City Casino. Sure, the casino is known for record-breaking jackpots in New York (a player just hit big, turning his $20 bet into a $1,473,503 million), but tucked between those slot machines are these hidden gems—from chic lounge spaces to retro-style red rooms—that will leave your guests feeling like a winner.
