Happy Birthday Horseshoe Casino Cleveland!

One year ago today, the Horseshoe Casino is downtown Cleveland opened its doors to the public.  It’s been a great year and by all indications business is good at The Shoe.   Congrats to everyone involved in bringing Cleveland another great landmark!

The High Limit Room at the Horseshoe

When the Horseshoe Casino came to downtown Cleveland the entire city was electric with excitement.  For weeks after it opened, the Horseshoe had lines out the door waiting to get in and still to this day I think its safe to say traffic is exceeding expectations.

I took this pic the first weekend the casino was open as I took a spin through the high limit room.  I’m thrilled to see that the Higbee building seems to be a perfect fit for the Shoe.

The casino was the subject of many debates for years prior to its arrival.  But regardless of if you voted for it or not, I think it’s safe to say that it’s added yet another jewel to the downtown area.
