Happy birthday is in order at Live! Casino & Hotel, the premier gaming, dining, and entertainment destination in the heart of the Stadium District in Philadelphia. It's hard to believe it's already been a year since the property opened. Even if you're not into games or gambling, there's much to admire at this new destination in Philadelphia. In addition to gaming and hotel accommodations, did you know that there are also several restaurants, eateries, and bars inside? Let's take a look at them.

Center Bar

Located in the heart of the casino floor is Center Bar, serving as a hub and offering guests 360° views of the gaming action, giant LED TV screens for sports viewing, communal tables, plush lounge seating, and live music.
