Rivers Casino Pittsburgh Adds and Updates Riverfront Ballrooms
Views you can use: new spaces, more amenities for conferences, weddings and special events

PITTSBURGH — July 2, 2024 — Rivers Casino Pittsburgh has recently completed a $6.6 million property refresh, which includes adding the new Bridges Ballroom, upgrading the existing Rivers Ballroom and adding amenities at the North Shore events and entertainment destination.

This renovation and reimagining brings over 50,000 total square feet of reservable and rentable event space into the property’s inventory, all under one roof. Rivers Casino opened in 2009 and celebrates its 15th anniversary in August.

“With the stadiums and other nearby attractions on the North Shore — not to mention our own full-service gaming floor, BetRivers Sportsbook and The Landing Hotel — our events calendar fills up quickly,” said Bud Green, general manager of Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “We’re happy to provide new spaces and more dates for hosting conferences, weddings and special events.”

Bridges Ballroom

In response to ongoing demand for event space, Rivers has unveiled the newly christened Bridges Ballroom, a 7,044-square-foot second-floor venue overlooking the Ohio River. The all-new ballroom offers a balcony and panoramic views of the riverfront, Mount Washington and the iconic Fort Pitt and West End bridges.

Bridges Ballroom, like all special occasion spaces at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, comes with comprehensive in-house event planning services. Of particular note, Rivers Casino’s executive chef and expert team of cooks and servers will deliver a custom-curated menu prepared on-site, accommodating everything from receptions to plated dinners, buffets and more.

Bridges Ballroom can be sectioned into three smaller spaces that can be individually reserved: the 1,844-square-foot West End Room, the 1,164-square-foot Fort Duquesne Room and the 4,036-square-foot Fort Pitt Room.

Meeting/Breakout Rooms

Four new private meeting rooms also make their debut as part of the Bridges Ballroom launch, including the 1,140-square-foot Clemente Room, the 472-square-foot Warhol Room, the 470-square-foot Carson Room and a 348-square-foot executive boardroom. These meeting rooms are available separately, combined or as prefunction areas for Bridges Ballroom events.

The Event Center and Rivers Ballroom

Just down the promenade from Bridges Ballroom are two other established venues, which are well known among concertgoers and event planners alike: The Event Center and Rivers Ballroom.

The Event Center, which opened in 2019 with its vast 25,000-square-foot grand hall, is a Western Pennsylvania favorite for both expos and ticketed shows. Boyz II Men; K.C. & The Sunshine Band; Theresa Caputo, the “Long Island Medium”; and many other headliners have performed multiple sold-out shows there.

Rivers Ballroom, which opened in 2011, also just got a makeover. The casino’s 7,873-square-foot inaugural banquet space has been refreshed and reappointed, with all-new carpet and finishings. It’s comprised of three spaces: the 2,764-square-foot Allegheny Room, the 2,533-square-foot Monongahela Room and the 2,576-square-foot Ohio Room. They are available separately or rolled into one. Rivers Ballroom offers a dedicated prefunction area, a balcony and breathtaking city and river views.

Starbucks and Black Card Room

The recent renovations kicked off last fall with the opening of a standalone, full-service Starbucks Coffee, located adjacent to Rivers’ arrival elevators. Additionally, the ultraexclusive Black Card Room, a dedicated lounge for Rush Rewards Players Club members who achieve the highest-tier status, opened just off the gaming floor at the end of last year.
