A little more than a year after the groundbreaking debut of the first sportsbook in a US professional sports venue, Caesars Entertainment plans to expand its 18,000-square-foot retail sportsbook at Capital One Arena. The expansion will feature the addition of 700 square feet of new betting space with 13 additional self-service sports betting kiosks, a brand-new entrance leading directly to the concourse of the arena, and a new culinary offering.
With this expansion, Caesars Sportsbook at Capital One Arena will also introduce celebrity chef Guy Fieri’s first full-service restaurant to Washington, D.C. with Guy Fieri’s Downtown D.C. Kitchen + Bar. Sports fans will soon enjoy an elevated culinary experience with scratch-made food, signature and classic drinks, and a large selection of beer and wine in addition to an industry-leading sports betting experience.
Along with brand new dishes, the menu will feature some of Fieri’s personal favorites including the award-winning Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger and the legendary Trash Can Nachos. This is the second culinary partnership between Caesars Sportsbook and Fieri following the recent opening of Guy Fieri’s Downtown Phoenix Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Monumental Sports & Entertainment and Caesars marked a major milestone in U.S. sports history with the opening of Caesars Sportsbook at MSE’s Capital One Arena. The sportsbook officially opened in May 2021, becoming the first-ever sports betting venue to open within a U.S. professional sports facility. As a first-of-its-kind, marquee destination for local, regional and global visitors, the two-story, 18,000 square-foot venue currently features 17 betting windows and 16 self-service betting kiosks, as well as Verizon 5G Wi-Fi capability so fans can place wagers on mobile devices.
Every wager placed with Caesars Sportsbook rewards the bettor with Tier Credits and Reward Credits that can be used to unlock unbeatable experiences within the Caesars portfolio of resorts and partnerships through Caesars’ industry-leading loyalty program, Caesars Rewards.
