In-person sports betting is a multi-million dollar industry in Maryland. The state saw nearly $250 million in retail sports betting handle in FY 2023, according to the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency.

While this number pales in comparison to MD’s online sports betting handle (retail betting accounted for only 8.5% of the state’s total sports betting handle), it still remains a popular way to gamble. Venues like Sports & Social Bethesda are helping to fill that need.

In this piece, we’ll discuss what types of betting are available at Sports & Social Bethesda. We will also highlight the entertainment and dining options, as well as provide contact and visitor information for the betting bar.
