Bicycle Casino Review
The Bicycle Casino is affectionately known as “The Bike”. This LA style casino card room can be found in Bell Gardens, California - close to Los Angeles. It has played a major role in the development of card games in this city for the last twenty-nine years, and is famous for hosting big brand franchised poker events. They are one of the top employers in Bell Gardens, CA, and are intimately involved with having a positive impact on the community. A newly planned (for 2015) Five Star hotel will offer seven storeys of fun, elegant accommodations in guestrooms and suites, a spa, state-of-the-art fitness centre, night club and elevated swimming pool.
One of the claims to fame of the Bicycle Casino is its massive smoke-free card room. The biggest in North America at over 100,000 square feet, and definitely THE place to play poker when in LA! From a friendly hand of Texas Hold ‘em, or Omaha, to Legends of Poker, the World Poker Tour®, and the World Series of Poker Circuit - the Bike has seen it all.
The California Gambling Control Commission lists 34 owners for the casino including Haig T Kelegian Sr and Haig T Kelegian Jr.

Poker at Bicycle Casino
The Bicycle Casino is one of the largest and, we think, best poker rooms in the country. The room is located directly off the 710 freeway in Los Angeles and is easily accessible from downtown LA, the Westside and Orange County. The Bike has undergone extensive renovation in recent years and is now one of the finest rooms in the world with a full range of modern amenities and non-stop poker action. This is a must-play room for any amateur or serious poker player.
The Bike spreads games of all varieties (hold'em, stud, Omaha, horse, razz, pineapple, etc.) and size, including some of the larger games in the LA area. The Bike also offers regular daily tournaments (Nooners) drawing over 200 entrants and hosts a number of larger tournament series throughout the year (see the schedule in the items of interest), including the Legends of Poker, a WPT televised event.
As for game quality, lower limit games ($3/6 and below) can be a free-for-all with 4-6 players to a flop. Higher limit games tend to be nittier than at crosstown rival, Commerce Casino. Given the array of games and tables, wait times are usually <15 minutes. Waitlists are posted on huge electronic screens and visible from all corners of the main room.
The dealers and floor staff are friendly and professional and the food and beverage staff very responsive to players. We think the food at the Bike is the best of any of the LA area cardrooms. Tableside food, the deli and Yoshi's sushi restaurant are all first rate.
