DOWNTOWN GRAND BRIEFS AND LISTINGS
Upcoming Events and Highlights of Downtown Grand and Downtown3rd
Introducing Street Dice, the brand-new twist on an age-old classic. This craps-style game is the brainchild of Downtown Grand CEO Seth Schorr, who envisioned a lively, crowd-pleasing outdoor gaming experience reminiscent of the back-alley dice games that flourished in urban centers during the Mob’s heyday. Inspired by the Downtown Grand’s proximity to The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, Street Dice is ONLY available at Downtown Grand. Played outdoors on a custom-designed table fronting Third Street and the Downtown3rd dining and community gathering space, it’s a quick version of a pass line bet in craps, in which a shooter rolls the dice once to set the point, then must hit the point within three subsequent rolls of the dice to win. The ground-level tub and gritty, brick-and-mortar table graphics were designed to recall the setting of real back-alley craps games, when dice were thrown onto the pavement only to bounce off the brick wall of a building.
Also this summer, experience Grand Style bottle service. For guests who stay one night or more, they will receive their choice of one bottle of SKY Vodka, Fireball Whiskey or Captain Morgan Rum with mixers at PICNIC*, Downtown Grand’s urban rooftop pool experience.
