Best New Attraction 

Horseshoe Casino

Dan Gilbert's palace of gambling in the historic Higbee Building on Public Square may have opened its doors to bettors in 2012, but Clevelanders are still wild for one of downtown's newest attractions. And why not? The Horseshoe's poker room is without comparison in the area, boasting regular low-dollar action for the average Joe and plenty of tournaments to satisfy your dreams of acting like those guys on ESPN. Table games are in ample supply and (for most of the week) reasonably priced with minimum bets that won't leave you scrambling for the ATM. Dealers are friendly, the atmosphere is sleek and clean, and where else can you find food from Michael Symon, Rocco Whalen and Corky & Lenny's all in one convenient location, not to mention a stellar jackpot of a buffet.

100 Public Square, 216-297-4777,
