The following is an excerpt from the original Baltimore Business Journal.
Horseshoe Casino Baltimore has become the latest venue in Maryland to embark on a transformation of its space ahead of the launch of sports betting in the state.
The South Baltimore casino announced Sept. 29 that it will convert the first floor of its building into an “immersive entertainment environment” that will combine a Caesars Sportsbook-branded retail sportsbook with a reconfigured table games area and a new brewpub concept. Horseshoe is a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment, which also recently announced a new sports betting partnership with the Baltimore Ravens.
A main feature of the sports betting area will be a new-to-Maryland dining concept called The Brew Brothers, which will offer local beer, handcrafted cocktails and a wide-ranging menu. Based on a concept with the same name at the Caesars-owned Eldorado Resort Casino in Reno, Nevada, The Brew Brothers will be able to seat a total of 250 people inside and on its outdoor patio and will also have two “fan caves” for private parties.
The menu will run the gamut from custom burgers, wings, ribs and specialty pizzas, to tacos, salads, pasta dishes and desserts. The casino has also partnered with four local breweries — DuClaw Brewing Co., Union Craft Brewing, Checkerspot Brewing Co. and Diamondback Brewing Co. — to offer 24 local draft beer options.
Baltimore-based Mahogany Inc. is the general contractor for both the restaurant and the sportsbook. Horseshoe also expects to hire 60 new employees to staff The Brew Brothers, including positions for cooks, waitstaff and bartenders. Hiring is ongoing and new hires will get a $500 signing bonus after 90 days.
