Golden Nugget Atlantic City? It’s Real!
More good news arrives for Atlantic City as Landry’s Inc, an international restaurant and gaming operator, has announced it will buy Trump Marina Hotel Casino for $38 million. Landry’s will put $150 million into their new casino investment for improvements, virtually the same way they resurrected the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas on Fremont.
In case you weren’t aware, the new Golden Nugget in Las Vegas is amazing, the extreme makeover converted a once tired casino into a state of the art attraction. The primary piece of the puzzle is “the Tank” an attraction featuring sharks as well as a three story water slide that wows visitors.
The amazing thing about this deal is that Landry’s already has a clear plan for it’s new Atlantic City acquisition. One of unique features of the Golden Nugget Atlantic City location will be H2O Pool and Lounge. H2O will introduce amazing fire pits and hot tubes into a year round experience at the Jersey Shore. Other plans include: Chart House Restaurant that will overlook the Frank S. Farley Marina, several restaurants like Vic and Anthony’s Steakhouse, Grotto Italian Restorante, Red Sushi, Lillie’s Asian & Noodle Bar and many more. The Rush Lounge will be a very cool nightlife experience for the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City.
