Hotel Eldorado Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day Birthday Bash

Kelowna’s Hotel Eldorado will celebrate its Irish roots and 23rd birthday with a St. Patrick’s Day bash today.

Guests are invited to celebrate with brunch from 10 to 2 pm or enjoy Irish merriment in the recently renovated lounge and lakeside restaurant later that day. The night kicks off at 5 pm with Celtic dancing performed by dancers from the Blakey School of Irish Dance. Birthday specials include an El Burger and Beer for $14.95 and complimentary birthday cake for all.

St. Patrick’s Day is no ordinary day at the El. Owner Jim Dixon was born in Tempo, a small village at the foot of Brougher Mountain in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. In honour of his Irish roots, Jim opened the Hotel Eldorado on St. Patrick's Day 1990. The original Eldorado Arms was built in 1926. Jim saved the Eldorado Arms from demolition and moved it by barge to its current location. Shortly after coming ashore, arson struck and burned the original building to the ground. Undaunted, Jim set out to rebuild Kelowna's favourite hotel and opened as the 19-room Hotel Eldorado on March 17, 1990. In 2004, 36 additional guest rooms were added. These guest rooms are featured now through April 30 in the El's $99 romance package.

Manager Brad Sieben suggests St. Patrick’s Day partiers make a night of it. “Check in, enjoy the Irish Dance performance, and reserve a table in our lakeside dining room for dinner. It all makes for a romantic evening.”

The EL is a family owned business located on the shores of Okanagan Lake just steps away from Kelowna's sunny beaches and the Mission Creek Greenway walking and running trails. It’s only a short distance from award-winning wineries and some of the best golfing in North America. For details visit their website at www.hoteleldoradokelowna.com or call 1-866-608-7500.
