Situated neatly in the heart of Southern California, San Manuel Casino has been enticing thrillseeking locals and tourists since its doors opened in 1986. On May 29 this year, San Manuel became even more alluring when they opened their new luxurious, high-limit gambling space: The Vault Gaming and Provisions.

The space is nestled behind an elevator on the second floor of the casino. The Vault’s arrestingly beautiful steampunk decor orients you within another time and space, while also cleverly acknowledging its physical orientation within the casino. The clandestine location, industrial decor and exclusivity of the space work together to make The Vault feel like a contemporary speakeasy.

Inside, among the gears, wheels and back-lit piping, there are 185 high-limit slot machines and eight gaming tables. Bets on slot machines range from $25 to $500, while bets on the gaming tables range from $300 to $10,000.

In an effort to cater to guests and players seeking a more tailored VIP experience, The Vault also features its own onsite concierge and VIP gaming salon with even higher stakes gambling. Limits in the VIP area can reach $15,000. The VIP salon, which can be partitioned into two separate spaces, provides guests with a more intimate gaming experience and features amenities like individual lockers, private bathrooms and superlative service. Because the VIP salon is designed to offer a more exclusive experience to visitors, guests should make arrangements with the concierge or their casino host if they want to take advantage of this space during their visit.

The opulence of The Vault pours over its main floor, too. Within its confines, you can order handcrafted cocktails, fine spirits, probiotic sodas and gourmet food created by San Manuel’s Executive Chef Jerrold Brooks. The Vault’s new tapas-style menu features many delicious offerings including mini Wagyu burgers, scotch eggs, chicken satay and Alaskan king crab and shrimp ceviche. San Manuel Casino Speakeasy

To wash it all down and embellish this one-of-a-kind experience, The Vault offers an array of wine, cocktails, and high-end spirits. Their menu features drinks inspired by classic cocktails like the Fashion Forward, Cachaca Sour and The Vaulted Man Tai. Their bar boasts an exceptional rare spirits collection that features Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve, Patrón en Lalique and Balvenie 50-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whiskey. If cocktails and fine spirits aren’t really your speed, their wine list features impeccable choices including a 100 point 2010 Screaming Eagle Cabernet.


The Vault’s opening gives San Manuel’s visitors more options when it comes to curating their gaming experience when they come to their resort. The addition of this high-limit gaming area and the luxurious amenities within its reaches give you the opportunity to live out your dreams of being a high-roller in a one-of-a-kind space that will be hard to forget.
