Building on its legacy of four decades of success in the Atlantic City market, the Marina District's first casino-hotel, Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, announced recently it will debut five new offerings this spring that introduce a brand-new spa and four new dining, nightlife and entertainment concepts for guests to enjoy.

Harrah's Resort Atlantic City

Following the excitement of Caesars Entertainment's recently-announced commitment of $400 million in capital investment and improvements into its Atlantic City resorts over the next three years, which includes upgrades to guestrooms and suites in Harrah's Atrium Tower, Harrah's Resort will additionally unveil five new offerings that will further complement the new guestroom renovations. These enhancements to the overall resort include: 

·      The Spa at Harrah's Resort - a first-class spa experience conveniently situated adjacent to The Pool, Fitness Center, and The Waterfront Conference Center 

·      The Lobby Bar - an expanded and upgraded bar experience that will serve as the ultimate pre and post destination for an evening out at the resort with top-shelf selections, craft cocktails, and over 70 variations of whiskey and spirits

·      The Baywalk at Harrah's - an outdoor, bayside container bar with dining and live music

·      Rum Point Crab House - a fresh crab and seafood restaurant with scenic sunsets and water views 

·      A new dining and nightlife experience at the resort's famous Pool at Harrah's.

"Harrah's Resort was the very first casino to open in the Marina District more than 40 years ago. It helped transform the area into a sophisticated resort destination within the market," said Gregg Klein, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. "Four decades later, we are continuing to evolve and introduce brand-new amenities and first-to-market experiences here in Atlantic City. Building on our recently-announced room enhancements to our Atrium hotel tower, these five new concepts will further position our resort as the ultimate summer destination with something for everyone under one roof."

All five new offerings will open in time for Memorial Day weekend, with the first phase of the Atrium Tower project completed by Summer 2021.
