Horseshoe Las Vegas Celebrates Grand Opening on the Las Vegas Strip

Horseshoe Las Vegas celebrated the culmination of a year-long transformation during its official grand opening on March 24. To commemorate the occasion and to bring great luck, gaming icon Jack Binion, whose family opened the original Horseshoe in downtown Las Vegas, presented a horseshoe from his family’s ranch to Caesars Entertainment leadership. The celebration also included showgirls adorned in original costumes from Jubilee! and confetti cannons signifying the next chapter for Horseshoe.

The festivities continued with a special reception for invited guests at Jack Binion’s Steak. Led by Jack Effel, VP of the World Series of Poker (WSOP), the event included a Q&A session with notables in the industry, such as Binion, sports bettor and philanthropist Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale and Poker Hall of Fame inductee Doyle Brunson.

The refreshed resort has new exterior signage, including a 180-foot-tall marquee by Branded Cities at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. Design elements at the property include tooled leather, dramatic colors and the signature gold horseshoe iconography throughout the casino floor and public areas.

The Arcade at Horseshoe Las Vegas is a 7,000-square-foot venue, offering a multi-sensory experience for all ages and skill levels. The attraction comprises over 80 supersized games, including classics like Skee-Ball, air hockey, Rock the Rim and an epic claw machine, Big One Extreme. Players are transported into immersive adventures via virtual reality with games such as King Kong and Mission Impossible, a four-player interactive gaming experience.

Eateries include Jack Binion’s Steak, the namesake restaurant of Las Vegas icon and gaming legend Jack Binion and part of the history of Horseshoe. Horseshoe Las Vegas welcomes James Beard Award winner and public television star Chef Martin Yan and his first Las Vegas restaurant, M.Y. Asia. The chef’s restaurant brings elements of his decades-long career and extensive travels together, giving diners a unique culinary experience. In addition, Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Sports Kitchen will open this summer. Guests can watch sporting events while enjoying Fieri’s signature American cuisine. The 6,540-square-foot space will seat up to 279 throughout the bar, main dining area and rotunda. The restaurant will offer a 360-degree island bar with decorative liquor displays and LED screens. Tip: Guests can enjoy a more intimate space in the MVP lounge on game day or for a special occasion.

Additionally, Horseshoe Las Vegas houses a first-of-its-kind WSOP Hall of Fame Poker Room. Adjacent to the resort’s front entrance near the Lobby Bar, the 4,900-square-foot space offers 18 poker tables with refreshed furniture and equipment. Following the biggest WSOP on The Strip for the first time, the new poker room offers tournament-style poker year-round. Legendary players will be featured in the Hall of Fame exhibit, which will be added to the space in the coming months.

Good to know: The “World Series of Poker” returns to Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas May 30–July 18. The 54th annual edition of the tournament builds onto the legacy of Caesars Entertainment’s WSOP, as the first tournament was played at the original Horseshoe Las Vegas in 1970. The 2022 tournament saw 197,626 entrants from over 100 countries with a record-breaking $347.9 million total prize pool.

The Horseshoe Casino was started by a gambler for gamblers in 1951. Caesars Entertainment now operates 10 Horseshoe properties throughout North America.
