Heraea restaurant opening 2nd US location at Horseshoe

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati will soon be home to Heraea, an upscale state-of-the-art sports restaurant and lounge whose menu and atmosphere appeal to both males and females.

Owned and operated by The ONE Group, Heraea, will be the third and final restaurant to open inside the downtown casino.

Inspired by the Heraean Games, the first athletic competition for women in ancient Greece, the restaurant shatters the common perception of a sports bar by creating a chic restaurant and lounge with a prominent DJ booth, great music and cutting-edge audio visuals.

"We're thrilled to be partnering with Horseshoe to open our unique sports-driven restaurant concept, especially in such a great sports city like Cincinnati," said Jonathan Segal, CEO of The ONE Group. "Heraea is perfect for people who are looking for a place to catch a game, a great meal or a fun night on the town."

The ONE Group curated a menu of classic American food with whimsical twists for Heraea. Playful game-day favorites like chili cheese fondue, pretzel wrapped hotdogs, sriracha brown butter chicken wings and crispy green beans can be found alongside salads and sliders. Great fish and meat dishes and mouthwatering desserts round out the Heraea menu.

Set to open in the fall, the outward facing restaurant will seat approximately 190 and will be located inside the casino adjacent to the casino's main entrance. Horseshoe Cincinnati is the restaurant's second location. The first Heraea opened inside the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas in February 2013.
