What's Coming in the New Year? 7 Things to Look Forward to in 2023

New year, new resort! (That’s how the saying goes, right?)

We’re already getting jazzed up about turning the calendar to 2023 at French Lick Resort, because there’s a lot to look forward to in the new year. Here’s an early peek at 7 of them:

Concerts, Concerts and More Concerts

We know you love ‘em. So we’re giving you more of ‘em.

You can expect to see a significant expansion of live shows in 2023, and we’re wasting no time getting started. You can still grab tickets for Lonestar on January 21, and then it’s time to rock out with Bret Michaels on February 11 (only a few select seats remaining).

That’s just the start. We’ll be announcing several more live acts throughout the rest of 2023 and you can see all of them at the Exhibition Hall, our new venue for concerts. Stay tuned for more additions to our concert lineup — many more of your favorite acts to come!

Girl Playing Pickleball

Pickleball at the Resort

We hear you, pickleball fans.

You’ve been asking about it, and we're planning to have pickleball in place by springtime. Up to four pickleball courts will be added in the Event Center Plaza (in the rear of French Lick Springs

Hotel and the Event Center, just down the hill from Valley Links golf shop). This area is under cover outdoors, so no danger of a rainstorm washing out your game.

A Giveaway You Won’t Want to Miss

We can’t spill too many beans just yet. But trust us. This one’s really good.

We’ll be announcing a big giveaway soon, and, well, “big” is an understatement in this case. Huge, colossal, king-sized, ginormous — whatever you want to call it, this will be the BIGGEST giveaway in French Lick Resort history. (So big that the contest winner won’t be the only one who gets to enjoy it.) Look for the official announcement and all the details around the corner in early 2023.

More Options at Hagen’s

If you’ve been craving some of your old favorites at Hagen’s Club House Restaurant, you’re in luck. Hagen’s will be returning to its traditional operating hours, open to resort guests, golfers and the public for lunch and dinner during the golf season. Our mouths are already watering for those BBQ ribs, and several other classic Hagen’s entrees will be back on the menu as well.

A “Barn” New Event Venue

Got a group coming to French Lick Resort? We’re continuing to make improvements and putting some finishing touches on a historic structure that’ll soon be a great venue for group functions.

The historic barn, originally built near Springville in the mid-1800s, was deconstructed, transported about 35 miles to French Lick Resort, then rebuilt up near The Stables. It’ll soon be transformed into an indoor event venue to complement the outdoor venue at the nearby Stables Pavilion.

First things first, in case you missed it: the Spa at French Lick and the Spa at West Baden are now both open 7 days a week. If you’re needing to decompress after the holiday mayhem (we see your head nodding), any day can be a spa day.

A relaxing facial or soothing mani/pedi always hits the spot, but you can also explore some unique experiences. Such as the new bamboo massage now offered at the Spa at West Baden to loosen tight muscles and calm the spirit. We hope to be adding more treatments to our menu of spa offerings in 2023, so be on the lookout for the latest and greatest.
