The 1,900-capacity venue opens Sept. 14 with a Midtown Men concert and renovations to the hotel will wrap by the end of the year, according to the local Sun Herald.

A new casino is slated to open in the spring.

The barge was formerly the site of the Isle of Capri, which was destroyed during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
