Comix Roadhouse at Mohegan Sun Opens

 Country music, mechanical bull riding, a Texas-style food menu, 30 craft beers on tap, a full bar and even line dancing!

No, we aren’t reviewing Treasure Island’s  Gilley’s on the Las Vegas Strip, we’re looking at the new Comix Roadhouse at Mohegan Sun.

What do you do with two once popular rooms of slots and video poker from the original 1990’s casino plan? – Turn it into a multi-faceted country & comedy venue unlike anything in southern New England. For almost a year, Mohegan Sun has been expanding the Comix Comedy Club, preparing it for the big opening this weekend. Mohegan’s newsroom reports it will be a “….state-of-the art venue presents a mix of regional country bands, local performers and entertainment on the new Roadhouse stage. The club will continue to offer its popular stand-up comedy and alternative entertainment in the Comix Comedy Club section of the venue.”

The menu will feature authentic Texas-style offerings such as smoked brisket, pulled pork and more with a focus on farm fresh ingredients delivered daily, along with Comix classics and local Craft beers.

“Because Mohegan Sun is a major tour stop for the top Country music artists like Keith Urban, Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney and so many others starting their careers in the Wolf Den, many then going on to play big arenas like ours, it’s such a perfect fit to welcome Comix Roadhouse, a new country attraction to our entertainment venues “, said Tom Cantone, Sr. Corp Vice President of Sports &  Entertainment of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.

Entertainment includes:

  •  #TBTKaraoke every Thursday
  • Live, local & regional country music every Friday & Saturday night
  • Mechanical bull riding, and Roadhouse dancers.
