LIVE! Casino & Hotel Maryland Announces April 29 Grand Opening Date For Sports & Social

DMV’s Ultimate Sports Viewing, Entertainment & Dining Experience Will Debut This Month

Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland is excited to announce that SPORTS & SOCIAL MARYLAND, the property’s newest dining and entertainment venue, will open to the public on Thursday, April 29. The one-of-a-kind restaurant, gaming and social lounge will debut in the heart of the casino floor within the space formerly occupied by Live! Center Stage.

Sports & Social is a national powerhouse concept located in high-profile entertainment districts, world-class casino resort destinations, and at the front door of professional sports stadiums around the country. The $12 million project created by ICRAVE, an internationally acclaimed award-winning strategy, design and development firm, is the first Sports & Social venue to open in Maryland. Sports & Social recently opened new locations in Ballpark Village adjacent to Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis, Live! Casino Pittsburgh and Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia in the heart of the South Philadelphia Stadium District. A second Maryland location will also open at Bethesda’s Pike & Rose neighborhood this fall.

The 212-seat venue will become the most exhilarating place for diehard Maryland and D.C. sports fans to cheer on their teams and watch multiple games and sporting events simultaneously. Sports & Social Maryland will feature a state-of-the-art AV system with more than 100 linear feet of LED screens, including a giant, 47-foot wide main screen. Every guest will be able to watch at least 10 games at once. In addition, Sports & Social will feature two main bars, luxurious VIP lounges, tiered sports viewing lounge chairs, casino games such as blackjack and roulette, as well as an assortment of interactive social games including mini-bowling and oversized foosball. Located in the heart of the casino floor, Sports & Social is designed to bring the energy of the casino into the venue.

“We can’t wait to introduce this nationally-recognized fan favorite venue and give our guests an unforgettable experience,” said Anthony Faranca, General Manager of Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland. “Sports & Social Maryland will extend the energy and excitement from the casino floor into this exhilarating space and take Live! to the next level as the state’s top gaming and entertainment destination.”

Sports & Social is also designed to seamlessly incorporate and launch sports betting in the venue once Maryland lawmakers finalize legislation, thereby expanding the gaming and entertainment options available to its guests. Through its partnership with FanDuel, and pending regulatory approval, the venue will provide guests with multiple options to wager, including self-service kiosks and retail windows, all within sight of the big game.

The safety and well-being of employees and guests remains a top priority at Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland. Sports & Social will ensure a safe and socially distanced experience for guests in accordance with Live!’s COVID-19 safety protocols outline in the property’s Play it Safe program.
