The Race & Sports Book will also be home to a new Race & Sports Bar – a 49 person-capacity bar and lounge featuring 16 bar-top gaming machines and plenty of televisions surrounding the bar for fans to keep up with all the action.
Visual technology will greet guests from the moment they walk towards the Race & Sports Book with an expansive electronic ticker that runs through the bar and lounge, giving fans constant updates on sporting news. The focal point of the main sports book is a more than 55-foot customizable LED screen which can be split to show multiple games and events. The sports book will additionally house 80 HD televisions throughout the venue, including nine 60 inch monitors. Just to the side of the LED screen, technology will continue with the Odds board updating in real time.
The Race & Sports will be open daily at 6 a.m. In late fall, sports fans can grab a bite from the Clubhouse Deli, a casual eatery which is currently under construction adjacent to the Race & Sports Book.
The Race & Sports Book is one of many projects being developed or renovated by Rampart Casino and JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. Last year, the team welcomed Hawthorn Grill to their lineup of restaurants; unveiled Cascade as their new, modern special event space; and showcased a new vibe on the Shizen patio. More changes are expected this fall including new ventures and updates from the hotel, food and beverage, events/catering, and casino areas.
