Sports & Social expands into Maryland bringing the ultimate sports viewing, gaming and dining experience to the region.

Live! Casino & Hotel Maryland announced the grand opening of Sports & Social Maryland, the property’s newest dining and entertainment venue. The one-of-a-kind restaurant, gaming and social lounge offers sports fans the ultimate viewing experience, located in the heart of the casino floor.

 

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 $15 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. 

 

The 212-seat, 13,775-square-foot Sports & Social Maryland is now home to the most exhilarating place for diehard Maryland and D.C. sports fans to cheer on their teams. Outfitted with a state-of-the-art AV system featuring more than 100 linear feet of LED screens, including a giant, 47-foot wide main screen, fans can watch multiple games and sporting events at once

 

“Adding the nationally-recognized Sports & Social to Live! is an extension of our commitment to providing our guests with unparalleled and unforgettable dining and entertainment,” said Rob Norton, President of Cordish Gaming Group. “Everyone that comes in is blown away by the visual and audio sports viewing experience. Combined with the extensive culinary menu and variety of games, Sports and Social is a must-see for anyone living or visiting this region.”

 

Guests can also enjoy a wide variety of interactive social games, including mini-bowling and oversized foosball. Dining at Sports & Social includes a Classic American Grill menu perfect for watching the game or a night out, in addition to two main bars, tiered sports viewing lounge chairs and luxurious VIP lounges.

 

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 Group, 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. 

 

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 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.
