Horseshoe Casino

Updated: Monday, August 25 2014, 11:31 AM EDT
Last week, I was invited to a press preview tour of the new Horseshoe Casino downtown, built near M&T Stadium. Parking is easily available in the adjoining parking deck, and an enclosed walkway on the second level allows easy access directly into the casino. The interiors are plush and sharply designed, with dramatic lighting and carpeting throughout that features interlocking horseshoe emblems. The space inside feels somewhat vertical, with two floors of gaming, and a mezzanine level in between that opens onto an atrium-like space in the center of the casino. This area houses the nightclub/lounge 14Forty. Aside from all of the table games and slot machines you'd expect, the casino offers several options for dining and drinking, including larger establishments such as Guy Fieri's Baltimore Kitchen Bar, Johnny Sanchez (a collaboration between celebrity chefs John Besh and Aaron Sanchez), Jack Binion Steak and Ruby 8 Noodles & Sushi. An area designated as Baltimore Marketplace houses walk-up establishments including outposts of local favorites like Heavy Seas Burgers, Tark's at the 'Shoe, Lenny's Deli, B'more Beers and the Mallow Bar. It was fun to get to wander around the floor and sample some of the restaurants' fare before the place is packed with gamblers. But that will come this week, as the Horseshoe holds its grand opening celebration and opens to the public.
