"It's incredibly exciting for The Cordish Companies to continue advancing this game-changing project with our partners at Caesars Entertainment," said Blake Cordish, Principal of The Cordish Companies. "The Pomp represents one of the most dynamic opportunities for placemaking in the United States. There is no comparable development in South Florida that combines casino gaming with best-in-class entertainment, retail, dining, hotel, residential, office and lifestyle amenities into one dynamic destination. With Live! as an anchor, we are creating a high-energy dining and entertainment hub that will attract millions of new visitors from across the region and beyond."
The development's name, The Pomp, honors the local history and pays homage to the beloved former Pompano Park racetrack located on the project site. With the newly remodeled and rebranded Harrah's Pompano Beach and Live! entertainment anchor at its core, The Pomp will feature 1.3 million square feet of retail and entertainment space, 4,000 luxury residential units, two hotels and 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space upon completion.
"We are completely reimagining what this area of South Florida looks like for residents and visitors to Pompano Beach with The Pomp and Live! through our partnership with The Cordish Companies," said Anthony Carano, President and COO of Caesars Entertainment. "Building off the success of our newly remodeled and rebranded Harrah's Pompano Beach casino, we are committed to delivering a one-of-a-kind entertainment and lifestyle destination, unlike anything in South Florida, that will provide the best in gaming, world-class amenities and attract new visitors to the dynamic area."
For over a century, The Cordish Companies has created and managed an extraordinary portfolio of upscale mixed-use, entertainment and casino resort destinations throughout the United States. Its Live! brand, which will anchor the development's entertainment and dining component as Live! at The Pomp, is regarded as one of the premier entertainment brands in the U.S., welcoming over 55 million visitors each year to its dining, entertainment, hotel, casino resort and music venues across the country. For over two decades, Live! has dramatically changed the entertainment experience, creating one-of-a kind destinations that offer a curated year-round calendar of special events, premier dining venues, first-class hospitality, and the best of local, regional and national entertainment.
"The City of Pompano Beach is delighted to have Caesars and Cordish partner on this incredible project," said Pompano Beach Mayor Rex Hardin. "Caesars is known for their energetic gaming destinations, and Cordish has a successful track record of developing and operating dynamic mixed-use properties that spur community revitalization. The Pomp and Live! will not only attract millions of visitors to our city annually, it will also create thousands of jobs for Pompano Beach and South Florida residents, leaving a lasting positive impact on our city and region."
Encompassing multiple dining concepts, Live! at The Pomp will showcase over 25,000 square feet of premier food and beverage venues including nationally acclaimed concepts Sports & Social and PBR Cowboy Bar. The venues will open onto a sprawling central plaza that will create a free flowing gathering space for local, regional and national live music and entertainment, family-friendly events, cultural celebrations, festivals, new-to-market special events, social activities and experiences, additional dining options, and more.
Sports & Social and PBR Cowboy Bar are two powerhouse names in dining and entertainment and among the fastest growing concepts in the United States. The concepts can be found at the front door of professional sports stadiums, high-profile entertainment and lifestyle districts, and world-class casino resort destinations including The Battery adjacent to Truist Park in Atlanta, GA; Ballpark Village adjacent to Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO; Texas Live! in the heart of the Arlington Entertainment District; Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia in Philadelphia's Stadium Complex and Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland in the Baltimore/Washington Corridor.
Offering guests an immersive sports entertainment atmosphere that is the next best game watching experience outside of a stadium or arena, Sports & Social will feature multiple digital media experiences including a state-of-the-art LED media wall, that allows guests to watch multiple games and sporting events at once. The 18,000-square-foot space will feature an electric environment with elements such as emcees and DJs, live fan-cams, competitions and games, and industry-leading audio and visual displays including music and light effects. Curated by James Beard Award Nominee Chef John Suley, Sports & Social's menu features an elevated selection from its made-from-scratch kitchen for lunch, dinner, and a can't-miss brunch experience on the weekends. The bar's beverage program includes creative craft cocktails, specialty drinks, and an extensive line-up of brews on tap.
Born from the toughest sport on dirt, the iconic PBR Cowboy Bar lives up to its legendary namesake, Professional Bull Riders, which embodies toughness, determination, and a true spirit of independence. PBR Cowboy Bars fuse that spirit with first-class hospitality, bringing an authentic country western experience that marries an electric combination of "cowboy cool" and big-time entertainment. The 7,000-square-foot venue will offer high-energy music, expansive bars, private VIP tables, industry-leading sound and lighting, and a mechanical bull. The soul of PBR Cowboy Bars comes alive through its great entertainment, the best in country music, and its rich traditions, including Freedom Friday, a night of appreciation once a month for all military personnel, veterans, first responders and public service members. PBR Cowboy Bars have welcomed some of the biggest names in country music including Luke Bryan, Old Dominion, and Justin Moore.
Along with Live! at The Pomp and Harrah's Pompano Beach, recently announced Topgolf will also anchor the Pompano Beach development with their eighth Florida location. The future Topgolf venue will invite players to enjoy the brand's technology-driven modern golf experience to play point-scoring golf games in an energetic and fun environment. The venue will feature 102 outdoor climate-controlled hitting bays equipped with Topgolf's signature ball-tracking technology, along with a full-service restaurant, top-shelf drinks, rooftop terrace, a patio, music, private event space and year-round family-friendly programming. Currently under construction, Topgolf is expected to open late 2023.
In Florida, Cordish was the original development partner of the Seminole Tribe of Florida for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, two of the most successful casino entertainment resorts in the world. Further demonstrating their strong commitment to the State of Florida, Cordish has several other developments in progress including Vivo! Dolphin Mall, a 62,000-square-foot dining and entertainment district currently under construction in Miami, and a 36,000-square-foot immersive dining and entertainment experience at The Pointe Orlando, near major theme parks and across the street from the Orange County Convention Center.
More information on The Pomp will be shared in the coming months.
