Rocky Gap Casino Resort, the picturesque gambling getaway in the mountains of Western Maryland, has opened a multi-use event center that company officials hope will help generate corporate and other group bookings.
The 5,000-square-foot Allegheny Event Center can accommodate up to 300 people in various configurations for various events. One that’s already on the books: A New Year’s Eve concert by an Alabama tribute band.
“Rocky Gap is known as a destination for meetings and events, and with our recent renovations and expansion, we are pleased that we can once again host a variety of functions,” general manager Scott Just said in a news release.
The upscale resort, hard by Interstate 68, has 220 guest rooms, a full-service spa and an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, in addition to Maryland’s fourth, most modest casino: Through November, Rocky Gap Casino has generated $20.6 million in gross gambling revenue, according to the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.
