Update on Openings


There’s nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our visitors. Under the direction of New Jersey Governor’s Restart and Recovery Commission, Atlantic City is taking a responsible, multi-phased approach to reopening. Atlantic City is now in Phase 2 of the city’s reopening plan, which is focused on cautiously reopening some businesses like restaurants offering outdoor dining and non-essential retail for in-store shopping, while maintaining abundant social distancing and encouraging the use of face coverings. We are pleased to announce the reopening of Atlantic City casino hotels and resorts on or after July 2. For more information on casino reopening plans click here.
