"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. "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."
Horseshoe Baltimore will feature 2,500 video lottery terminals and more than 100 table games, plus a 25-seat World Series of Poker-branded poker room. The full-service casino will employ some 1,700 team members committed to providing the industry's best customer service.
In addition to the casino industry's best games, Horseshoe Baltimore will be home to two celebrity chef restaurants: Johnny Sanchez, a spirited taqueria that will be the first collaboration between renowned culinary masters John Besh and Aaron Sanchez; and Guy Fieri's Baltimore Kitchen & Bar, which will bring the signature style of the chef, restaurateur, Emmy Award winning host and New York Times bestselling author to Charm City.
The casino will feature a third premium dining venue, Jack Binion's Steakhouse, named for the gaming industry pioneer who made Horseshoe a nationally recognized casino brand. A staple of Horseshoe casinos throughout the country, Jack Binion's Steakhouse features a menu replete with prime steaks, seafood and pork chops – all freshly prepared and complemented by an extensive wine list with special reserve vintages.
Rounding out the casino's dining options are Ruby 8 Noodle and Sushi Bar, featuring authentic Asian dishes in a contemporary environment prepared under the supervision of Master Executive Chef Kai Lam; and the Baltimore Marketplace, a collection of several popular restaurant concepts operated by celebrated local restaurateurs that together will comprise the casino's casual dining experience.
Horseshoe Baltimore will also feature several nightlife options, including its signature 14forty Bar – the only bar in Charm City that will serve drinks around the clock, seven days a week. The multi-level venue will be home to live entertainment acts, a private VIP seating area offering bottle service, a two-story video board and a drink menu with a full array of handcrafted cocktails served by spirited "showtenders."
As with all Caesars-operated casinos, Horseshoe Baltimore will offer Total Rewards, the gaming industry's premier player loyalty program that features four distinct levels, or tiers. The more guests play and enjoy the entertainment options offered at the nearly 40 Total Rewards resorts and casinos, the more Tier Credits guests earn – and the more benefits they unlock.
"Horseshoe Baltimore is going to provide our guests with an experience unlike any other they've had in this area," Barnhill said. "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."
