$15-Million Gaming Terrace Opens at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore

| December 5, 2019 | 0 Comments

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore hosted a grand opening today for its new 10,000 sq. ft. outdoor gaming space called The Terrace. The $15-million project started in April and hosted a soft opening last week.

The gaming terrace was built over the casino’s porte cochere. The Terrace features 174 slot machines, 16 live table games, 15 video poker machines, and a patio bar serving a full range of beverages, cigars, and cigarettes.

The Terrace has openings on the north and south ends and is covered on the other two sides. The space is heated for the winter months and has large fans for ventilation in the summer months.

Horseshoe Casino said The Terrace will create 100 new jobs and General Manager Randy Conroy said they are about halfway through that hiring process.

The existing smaller outdoor gaming decks with slot machines will continue to operate.

In addition to The Terrace, Horseshoe Baltimore recently opened its new Caesars Rewards Experience Center, which is a nearly $1-million renovation of the former rewards counter into a “high-tech interactive engagement space.”

“We’re thrilled to be introducing the market’s premier outdoor gaming facility and its best player loyalty experience center,” said Conroy in a press release. “These projects represent our commitment to continually reinvesting in the guest experience and providing new and unique entertainment opportunities to our visitors. They’re also a critical component in our broader investment in Baltimore, where we are transforming the Southern Gateway into a vibrant destination for fun-seekers from throughout the region.”

Horseshoe Casino is also currently undertaking a $1-million renovation of its first floor food court called Baltimore Marketplace. Currently open is Lenny’s Deli, Piezetta, and Guy’s Bar-B-Que Joint. Additional vendors will be joining the space. Conroy said announcements are expected in the next two weeks.

New entrances and walkways were installed in April so that families with kids could go to GDL Italian and Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen + Bar without entering the gaming floor.

CBAC, the ownership team of Horseshoe Casino, is also planing an entertainment-based, mixed-use development along Warner St. that connects the casino to M&T Bank Stadium. Already announced is Topgolf and music venue The Paramount Baltimore, both of which are expected to begin construction next year. CBAC is also eyeing a hotel and additional entertainment venues for this corridor.
