History

I have played for fun at Bay 101 for the past 15 years and love the nice family at Bay 101. The players here are so much fun. They challenge you but they are friendly about it and make you a better player. The food is a different style than found at most casinos and it’s better than can be found at most casinos too.

FounderSan Jose's Premier Card Club Has a Rich History.

Sutter’s Club was founded in 1929 by Joseph Sutter, Sr. It was originally located at Old Aviso Road and Highway 237 in Alviso, California. Through those early years, the Club was a very popular entertainment spot in the South Bay Area. When Mr. Sutter passed away in 1947, Joseph Sutter, Jr. took over the business. In 1961, Joseph Jr. added five poker tables and gaming was forever changed in San Jose.

Casino When the State began widening Highway 237 in 1992, the Alviso location closed and a new site was selected on Bering Drive, just off East Brokaw Road at Highway 101. Bay 101 Casino opened in September of 1994, and quickly earned recognition throughout the gaming community as one of the finest clubs on the West Coast.


Today Bay 101 Casino is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The 72,000-square-foot facility features 49 gaming tables, a sports bar and restaurant, a deli, and a beauty salon. Spacious, well-lit and staffed with pleasant, helpful folks.
