Background and Context
Just a few miles east of Los Angeles International Airport, sits Hollywood Park, the former stomping grounds of the legendary racetrack and the largest undeveloped parcel of land in the Greater Los Angeles area. JCJ Architecture worked closely with developer Wilson Meany to bring the vision for the new Hollywood Park Casino to fruition. This is the first step in a much wider revitalization plan for Inglewood, championed by Mayor James Butts, the Stockwood Capital Group and L.A. Rams owner Stan Kroenke. The former racetrack grounds will serve as the site for the multi-billion dollar sports and entertainment complex, the City of Champions, home to the L.A. Rams.

Hollywood Park Casino is expected to attract both gaming and non-gaming visitors from the nearby Forum and The City of Champions. The floor plan allows guests to enjoy non-gaming amenities without the intimidation of a casino environment. The Food & Beverage environments - Raise Lounge, Century Bar & Grill and Peet’s Coffee, were specifically designed to meet the needs of the quickly shifting demographics of Inglewood, CA. Raise Lounge lives up to its name as it “raises” the bar for luxury, California card club settings. Century Bar & Grill features a large double-sided screen and multiple televisions, making it an ideal spot to catch the “big game.” And Peet’s Coffee has a casual grab and go design for casual, round the clock, dining.

The luxurious interior was inspired by mid-century modern fashion which was prevalent at the racetrack during Inglewood’s prime.
