Ocean Casino Resort will unveil $85 million worth of property updates July 1 — including 460 renovated rooms and suites and a new players lounge — the facility announced Monday.
“Ocean is committed to providing the best guest experience in Atlantic City,” Ocean General Manager Bill Callahan said. “Between our new hotel product, the addition of the Gallery Bar Book & Games, and various new food and beverage outlets, there will be more reasons than ever to come to Ocean this summer.”
The new Gallery Bar Book & Games will feature a 100-foot elevated bar and lounge, video poker, blackjack and roulette tables, and 140 feet of LED walls.
Ocean officials hope the Gallery, located in the center of the casino floor, will set the stage for social betting and unforgettable after-hours experiences. A 17-foot open-air staircase will connect to Balcony Bar, a mezzanine bar and lounge where guests will enjoy the ultimate VIP sportsbook experience.
Then, there are the rooms.
Ocean officials say the new 463-square-foot Contemporary Blu rooms draw inspiration from the colors and patterns of the shoreline. The beach-inspired flooring and wallcoverings aim to create a calming atmosphere, while the soft-touch fabrics mimic the style and forms reminiscent of the building.
Continuing the beach-scape aesthetic, the newly built suites offer elevated interior finishes and additional amenities such as a dining area, wet bar and generous lounge seating for guests to host small gatherings. The Social Suite is the perfect pied-a-terre for a getaway vacation, Ocean officials said.
The casino also is planning a number of updates to its eating options.
On June 1, the iconic Serendipity3 will open, offering its famed Frrrozen Hot Chocolate.
Ocean will be home to the newest and most picturesque Starbucks in Atlantic City when it makes its debut later this summer. Situated next to Topgolf Swing Suites, Ocean’s Starbucks will feature awe-inspiring views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Ocean recently completed an expansion of its casual Asian restaurant, Zhen Bang, adding 60 seats and almost 1,000 square feet of supplementary dining space.
New for the summer, guests also can explore the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk with bike rentals located directly outside in Ocean’s Porte Cochere.
