The Crystal Bay Casino features two of the premier live music venues on the North Shore. Featuring national acts ranging from jam bands, reggae, rock ‘n’ roll, blues and funk, as well as regular comedy shows, the Crown Room always has some big-name band playing soon.

Add to that slot machines, table games and a sports book, and you’ve got plenty of entertainment options every night of the week.
Tahoe Biltmore Lodge and Casino
5 State Highway 28, Crystal Bay, Nev.
Located in Crystal Bay, The Biltmore is home to The Breeze Nightclub, which features a state of the art sound and lighting system and live entertainment most nights of the week. Just off from the expanse of slot machines and table games, The Tahoe Biltmore is the right spot for nightly excitement.
Cal Neva Lodge & Casino
2 Stateline Road, Crystal Bay, Nev.
The famous Circle Bar inside the Cal Neva hosts guests from all over the world who come to view the spectacular Crystal Dome that contains more than 7,000 pieces of hand-cut German crystal. Pair that with local acts performing live music and an intimate casino floor and you’ve got a great spot to start the evening. Also look out for bigger shows coming to the historic Frank Sinatra Celebrity Showroom on the other side of the casino as the management looks to recreate the glory days when Sinatra and his friends were regular performers at this classic Tahoe resort.
