$442M Horseshoe Casino to Open in Baltimore This August
- Jun 28, 2014
Maryland is getting ready to welcome its newest casino. Executives of Horseshoe Casino Baltimore announced last week that the grand opening of the $442 million entertainment facility is scheduled for August 26, pending regulatory approval.
The project broke ground last year, on May 29. Horseshoe Baltimore is located along Russell Street on Baltimore’s south side. The two-story, 335,000-square-foot facility will have 2,500 video lottery terminals, more than 100 table games and a 25-table World Series of Poker-branded poker room.
“After more than two years of planning and construction, we’re excited to unveil our world-class casino—and Baltimore’s next great attraction—on August 26,” said Horseshoe Baltimore Senior Vice President and General Manager Chad Barnhill in a press statement. “Featuring 122,000 square feet of premier gaming space, two celebrity chef restaurants, innovative live entertainment venues, the industry’s best player loyalty program and Maryland’s only World Series of Poker Circuit tournaments, Horseshoe Baltimore will offer a truly exceptional gaming experience.”
In addition to the two celebrity chef restaurants, a Johnny Sanchez taqueria and a Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen & Bar, Horseshoe Baltimore will also feature a Jack Binion’s Steakhouse, a Ruby 8 Noodle and Sushi Bar and the Baltimore Marketplace. The casino also includes several nightlife options.
“Horseshoe Baltimore is going to provide our guests with an experience unlike any other they’ve had in this area,” Barnhill added. “In just several weeks, we’re going to change the way people in and around Maryland think of casino entertainment. We can’t wait to introduce Horseshoe’s legendary service to Charm City.”
CBAC Borrower, LLC, a consortium indirectly owned and controlled by Caesars Growth Partners, LLC, is the developer of the Horseshoe Baltimore. During construction, the $442 million project created 2,000 jobs. Once open, the full-service casino will employ 1,700 people.
