Heavy Seas will have its name in lights at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore, the casino under construction on Russell Street.

On Friday, Horseshoe announced that a Heavy Seas tavern will be among five Maryland-based vendors in its first-floor casual-dining area, which it's calling the Baltimore Marketplace.

The casino said the other Baltimore Marketplace vendors would include Lenny's Deli, which has locations in Harborplace, on Lombard Street and in Owings Mills; the Greenspring Station restaurant Tark's Grill, which will be represented at the casino by a casual bistro named Tark's at the 'Shoe; the Towson-based pizza-by-the-slice chain Mamma Ilardo's, which will introduce a new personal-size pizza concept named Pie-Zetta; and the Mallow Bar, a "crispy treat dessert cafe" specializing in homemade marshmallow treats.

Heavy Seas, the flagship of the Halethorpe-based Clipper City Brewing Co., expanded its brand in 2012 with a tavern concept, Heavy Seas Alehouse, which now includes the original Little Italy restaurant and a second in Rossyln, Va., which opened in February.

The Horseshoe is a casino brand of Caesars Entertainment, the lead investor of the consortium that will be operating the Baltimore casino.

The casino previously announced that “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” host Guy Fieri would open a restaurant named Guy Fieri’s Baltimore Kitchen & Bar, and the chefs John Besh and Aaron Sanchez will collaborate on a Mexican restaurant at Horseshoe called Johnny Sanchez.
