Live! Casino Pittsburgh to launch new event this June
April 29, 2022
The mini satellite Live! Casino Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania is opening a new event and entertainment space called The Venue this June. The new extension will be 7,000 square feet wide. It is expected to accommodate up to 780 people at a time.
"We are setting a new standard for all meetings and events in the region with The Venue at Live! Casino," General Manager Sean Sullivan said.
"Led by a best-in-class team, this most recent investment is focused on making your experience unforgettable from the moment you step onto our property to the moment you leave."
The Venue will be on the second floor, near the restaurants and the poker room. It will be available for corporate functions, weddings, concerts, and special events.
The announcement initially began in December last year when the company outlined its plans to have a renovation done on the casino. It planned to add a seven-table poker room, a high-limit slots area, a Fanduel FanCave complete with a 173-inch television screen, and 20 electronic gaming tables.
Outdoor Summer Series
Alongside the new event space, Live! Casino Pittsburgh will also transform its parking lot into an outdoor entertainment area this summer. It is planning to host the Pro "Bulls & Barrels" Rodeo Concert, the casino's first-ever rodeo event.
The 2-day rodeo event on June 4-5 will be held simultaneously with the opening of The Venue indoor space that month.
"We are excited to announce our Outdoor Summer Series and to kick things off with our rodeo and concert weekend on June 4-5," Sullivan said.
"The Summer Series will be a fun time for all ages. Dust off your favorite pair of cowboy boots and join us."
The rodeo event will feature professional bull riding, barrel racing, trick ropers, rodeo clowns, and many more.
