Mohegans, Arooga's plan groundbreaking

Published July 19. 2014 4:00AM

The Mohegan Tribe and Arooga's Grille House and Sports Bar, whose franchise agreement was announced last month, will break ground next week on the first of 15 New England restaurants.

A ceremony is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the building site at the corner of Sandy Desert Road and Route 32 in Uncasville.

The franchise agreement with the sports bar is part of the Mohegan Tribe's commitment to nongaming business diversification and job creation. Arooga's at Mohegan Sun will be a 9,000-square-foot restaurant with separate bar and restaurant areas, a large outdoor deck for dining, and firepits for social gatherings.
