Rivers Casino opens in Pittsburgh August 9

July 30, 2009

PITTSBURGH - The Rivers Casino will debut its 3,000 slot machines when it opens August 9th. The $780 million casino features a multistory glass facade overlooking the Ohio River, downtown Pittsburgh and Mt. Washington.

The outside amphitheater between the casino and the river will seat 1,200 for a grand-opening concert with Motown band Rare Earth followed by fireworks.

"It's a wonderful place. It's exceeded my expectation immensely," said CEO Greg Carlin of Holdings Acquisition Co. He said officials decided to open on a Sunday because fewer people would attend the event. "We want to make sure everyone has a good customer experience. We want to sort of ease into the opening."

There are nine restaurants and bars. The sports bar will open this fall and the ballroom will open next year. A night club is also planned for the future.

The restaurants will seat 1,100 diners and offer everything from pizza to hoagies and wings, as well as European-style bistro fare and an upscale menu at Andrew's. The all-you-can-eat Grand View Buffet overlooks the river will serve $15 lunches and $25 dinners including barbecue, Asian, Mongolian, American and Italian fares.
