Horseshoe Casino Cleveland is looking to merge the popularity of table games in Cleveland with the ease of slot machines with the creation of TAG Bar, a new 2,000 square foot virtual gaming center and lounge that will feature 35 electronic table games including blackjack, roulette and craps.
The electronic table games will allow gamblers to play traditional games using video touch screens and virtual dealers.
When the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland opened its doors two years ago this week it featured 94 table games and 2,083 slot machines. The casino quickly found, though, Cleveland was a stronger than expected table game market, so with space limited they upped the number of table games by 21 percent to 119 while lowering the number of slots by 22 percent to 1,609.
In March the casino posted its biggest table game month since opening May 14, 2012.
The TAG Bar will be located on the second floor of the casino near the new skywalk entrance.
“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.”
TAG Bar will be decorated in bold red and brown hues with plush lounge seating. 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.
TAG Bar, which is slated to open later this year, is only the second of its kind within Caesars Entertainment, which recently opened the first TAG Bar at The Quad in Las Vegas.
