Have you ever wondered what it was like to play inside of the 4,000 sq. ft. Jubao Palace at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa? Jubao Palace translates to “Ju Bao Ting” in Chinese which means “gathering hall for treasure”. The Vietnamese name Quán Tim Vàng, which is also displayed at the tri-lingual entrance sign means a “parlor for seeking gold”. We are here to give you all of the exclusive details, from a look at the quick service noodle bar to the 17 table games. The five table games playing include: Mini-Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Pai Gow Tiles, Asia Poker and Blackjack.
In addition, Jubao Palace offers a quick service 15-seat noodle bar that features high quality, authentic Asian cuisine with a Hard Rock spin. The design of the room features noodles elongated with movement which is a reference to prosperity. The bar counter and soffit above it are soft and have a shapely line that is a nod to the shape of noodles. Eight pendants within the soffit represent good luck and the change in height within the soffit is aspirational, reaching up to the sky.
