Horseshoe Casino Cleveland announced plans today to expand its entertainment offerings by adding a new lounge focused on electronic gaming. The 2,000-square-foot virtual gaming center and lounge, dubbed TAG Bar, will feature more than 35 electronic table games including blackjack, roulette and craps.
The electronic table games, which allow gamblers to play traditional games using video touch screens and virtual dealers, will be in addition to the 89 classic table games already available at Horseshoe Cleveland.
“We continuously seek opportunities to delight our guests and, in our first two years, we have discovered how much Clevelanders love table games,” said Marcus Glover, general manager of Horseshoe Cleveland. “By redesigning the second floor, we’re able to bring the latest in table game action to Cleveland and provide additional entertainment space within the casino.”
Slated to open later this year, TAG Bar will greet guests as they enter Horseshoe Cleveland from the new skywalk, which links the casino’s Collection Auto Group Centre parking structure to the gaming floor on the second level.
TAG Bar will be decorated in bold red and brown hues with plush lounge seating, creating a vibrant, upscale, full-service sports bar. Electronic table games will be embedded in the bar top, allowing guests to watch sporting events on 16 flat screen TVs placed above the bar while continuing to play their favorite table games. An additional 20 flat screen TVs will fill the remainder of the lounge to provide guests access to a variety of entertainment channels while enjoying their experience throughout the lounge and gaming areas.
Horseshoe Cleveland’s second floor will come alive as one of the existing live table games pits is repositioned right outside TAG Bar, melding together the excitement of live and electronic table games. A small number of slot machines on the second floor will also be relocated to other parts of the casino in order to provide space for TAG Bar and the new Total Rewards center, which opened in the first quarter.
The second floor upgrade is the latest of planned amenities to become a reality at Horseshoe Cleveland, which opened as Ohio’s first casino in May 2012. Upon requests from guests, Horseshoe recently unveiled its $7 million skywalk and began providing food around the clock from Cleveland’s iconic Corky & Lenny’s deli, which is located in the Horseshoe food court on the second floor. Horseshoe also provides live entertainment Thursday – Saturday in its Vintage 51 bar on the second floor.
Horseshoe will debut the new technology on May 13 at a public party to be hosted at Vintage 51 bar from 4-6 p.m. The party will feature DJ Smoov, drink specials, Las Vegas-style showgirls and a demonstration electronic table game. All Total Rewards members will be invited to test their luck on the demonstration roulette game throughout the summer through a promotion called Roulette Mania.
The unique entertainment area, TAG, is only the second of its kind within Caesars Entertainment which recently opened the first TAG Bar at The Quad in Las Vegas.
“This is a new concept to Caesars and to Northeast Ohio, so we want our guests to be able to try out the electronic table game before its debut later this year,” Glover said. “We want them to feel comfortable with this exciting new type of gaming.”
For Roulette Mania, all guests are invited to swipe their Total Rewards card at a promotional kiosk inside the casino beginning at 3 p.m. on May 13. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays May 13 through July, 65 winners will be drawn each day to participate in Roulette Mania. Winning guests will then have the chance to take a spin on the roulette wheel to win various prizes. A complete set of rules is available at the Total Rewards desk.
