The words "Atlantic City" and "entertainment venues" go together as well as peanut butter and jelly. And with the demand to keep up with modernization and the latest and greatest hotel features, this entertainment mecca is updating some of its most popular event spaces.

Among the latest news from this storied destination: Caesars Entertainment is pouring $56 million into a renovation of the 507 rooms and suites in the Harbour Tower at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City Hotel & Casino. When the project ends by midyear, the Harbour Tower will be renamed the Coastal Tower. 

But that's not all! A number of iconic locales in this New Jersey destination are getting a revamp. Following are just a few of the renovations you can expect. These updated A.C. sites will offer great prospects as your next meeting space. 

New Event Venues and Meeting Space in Atlantic City

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has undertaken an $11 million project to expand its sportsbook and integrate it with a "destination bar." 

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City

 

Already new on the scene, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City debuted in 2018. Formerly the Trump Taj Mahal, the property underwent a $500 million, head-to-toe transformation into a shrine to rock art and memorabilia. New hotel features include 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space. The Mark G. Etess Arena, a holdover from the Taj Mahal days, has been expanded to seat 7,700.

Ocean Resort Casino

Luxor Capital Group, a New York City-based hedge fund, has purchased the Ocean Resort Casino. The property, which began its life as the Revel and had been closed since 2014, was acquired by Bruce Deifik early in 2018 and reopened that June.

Sitting pretty on 20 acres of beachfront, the resort hosts groups in 160,000 square feet of indoor event space and 90,000 square feet of outdoor venue. Ocean Resort amenities include: 

Luxor is initiating a $70 million revamp that will include wrapping up incomplete work that had been underway on 12 floors in the hotel tower, which will add 500 guest rooms to the existing count of 1,399. 

Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City

Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City has expanded its room count to 2,730 following parent company Tropicana International's purchase of the Chelsea Hotel across the street.

A pedestrian skybridge links the two properties, and the addition is now known as the Chelsea Tower at Tropicana Atlantic City.
