New casino opening in prime downtown Cleveland location

From Flee to the Cle:

Downtown is changing. From the new Cleveland Medical Mart and Convention Center to the renovated theater district of PlayhouseSquare, Cleveland is reinventing its urban city center. The perfect example is the venerated old Higbee Building — once a legendary department store famous for its appearance in A Christmas Story. Today, it’s being re-imagined as the first casino in Ohio, creating another dot that connects entertainment with downtown’s increasingly vibrant core.

“Horseshoe Casino Cleveland is one of only a few truly urban casinos in the country and it’s located in the heart of downtown intentionally,” explains Jennifer Kulczycki, communications director at Rock Gaming LLC (the Midwest-based gaming partnership behind the project). “We are creating an environment that will encourage connectivity with area restaurants, clubs, cultural attractions, and sporting events.”

From a design perspective, Horseshoe Casino Cleveland (www.HorseshoeOhio.com) could very well become the epicenter of Cleveland’s entertainment resources (situated strategically to the Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field and bar and restaurant hubs like The Flats and East 4th Street). The $350 million casino is expected to attract 5 million visitors a year, exploring a 96,000-square foot gaming floor, VIP lounge, classy bar, buffet restaurant, and a food court. Gold sheers will hang in the windows allowing daylight to filter into the casino, providing passersby with a shadow of the excitement inside: 2,100 slot machines, 63 table games, a World Series of Poker room and excellent odds for fun.

The Horseshoe brand prides itself on a 60-year history of being home to the best odds, highest limits and biggest jackpots. “It is all about great service and great food in a comfortable and polished setting,” she explains. “Horseshoe is honored and proud to bring this experience to Ohio.”
