Caesars Entertainment Inc has officially opened the Caesars Sportsbook at Chase Field as part of its partnership with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Located adjacent to Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix, the two-story, 22,300 square-foot sportsbook is combined with a full-service restaurant, Guy Fieri’s DTPHX Kitchen + Bar. It is the largest freestanding sportsbook in Arizona and the largest retail sportsbook to open in partnership with a major sports stadium in the US.
On June 21, an opening event for the sportsbook and restaurant took place, with representatives from Caesars and D-backs sampling menu items and making ceremonial first bets, as well as a donation of $20,000 by Caesars to the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation.
“We’re extremely proud to bring Caesars Sportsbook and Guy Fieri’s Kitchen + Bar to Chase Field and Downtown Phoenix,” commented Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital.
“This destination provides sports bettors and non-sports bettors, locals, and visitors alike, with an experience they can’t find anywhere else. Thank you to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Guy Fieri for making this possible.”
The sportsbook features nine betting windows, 13 self-service betting kiosks, wall-to-wall flatscreen televisions, patio space, and table and plush lounge-style seating on both floors with a total capacity of over 425. Private space is also available to rent.
D-backs President & CEO, Derrick Hall, added: “What an incredible day for our fans, sports enthusiasts, guests, and especially for our organization. We are proud to partner with Caesars Entertainment and Guy Fieri, to bring a year-round first-class sportsbook, restaurant, and event space to downtown Phoenix.
“Everything about this dynamic venue, from the food to the design to the service, has been meticulously planned for an unmatched guest experience.”
The opening of Guy Fieri’s DTPHX Kitchen + Bar at Caesars Sportsbook marks the chef’s first-ever full-service restaurant in Arizona.
In partnership with Fieri and led locally by Executive Chef Kayla Laasko, Guy Fieri’s DTPHX Kitchen + Bar offers scratch-made food, signature and classic cocktails, and an extensive beer and wine menu. The menu features new recipes and Fieri’s personal favorites including Trash Can Nachos and the Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger.
Fieri stated: “I’ve worked with the Caesars team for nearly a decade opening restaurants all over the country together. They are the best of the best.
“The idea of bringing this next-level restaurant concept to Arizona, a place where I have showcased more than 30 restaurants through ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ over the years, was a no-brainer for me. Thank you to the D-backs and Caesars for making it happen.”
Bloc9 Architecture served as architect on the project in partnership with Borisoff Design Studio, while The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company served as a general contractor.
