Grand Z Casino Hotel History

The Grand Z Casino Hotel at Central City is the newest of the three Z-branded casinos opened by CC Gaming LLC, which was acquired by Maverick Gaming LLC in late 2019.

The property is based in the location of the former Reserve Hotel & Casino, which was purchased and renovated by CC Gaming in 2017. The renovation was a dramatic makeover which revitalized the entire property including the hotel complex.

The 119-room hotel accommodates patrons of the Grand Z Casino Hotel, but is also offered as an option to customers of its two sister properties nearby: Johnny Z’s Casino, also in Central City and The Z Casino in Black Hawk.

Their gaming area is open 24/7 with a huge range of slot machines and table games – complete with Blackjack, Three-Card Poker, roulette, and craps. 

There are a variety of dining options on the property, including two restaurants and a café:

  • Grand Bistro: This is their flagship fine-dining restaurant which features fresh fish, hand-cut steaks, as well as a range of great appetizers and desserts. It is open at 5 p.m. Thursday through Sunday
  • The Grill: A full-service restaurant which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Grill offers a varied menu and is well-known for its Prime Rib
  • Z Café: Each of the “Z” properties has its very own Z Café which features Starbucks beverages and an assortment of grab-and-go options including sandwiches, pizza and ice cream.

One of the highlights of The Grand Z Casino Hotel is its “Mile High Room” – an entertainment lounge featuring regularly-scheduled live music from local and touring artists. It contains a dance floor and state-of-the-art sound system.
