Showboat reopens guest rooms in celebration of Atlantic City's rebirth

21 June 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Showboat is excited about the openings of its neighbors, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Atlantic City and Ocean Resort Casino. So much so that owner Bart Blatstein announced today he is re-opening all of the hotel's rooms.

When he reopened the hotel in July of 2016 he reopened with 852 oceanfront rooms and suites. Now all 1,331 rooms and suites will be open just in time for the two new casino openings on 28 June. Blatstein is confident that the resurrection of the former Taj Mahal and Revel properties, along with Stockton's new Atlantic City campus, will enliven the boardwalk and attract new guests to Atlantic City.

“This is an exciting time for us – Tower Investments has embraced the opportunity of investing in Atlantic City and we've expressed faith in the resort's renaissance when other investors were running away," said Blastein, President and CEO of Tower Investments. "We're thrilled to bring the Showboat back to life. So far we've been extremely successful in hosting meetings and conventions and now look forward to welcoming more guests to this iconic hotel."

Along with opening more rooms, the Showboat is excited to announce new food and entertainment management and venues, including:

Nobil On The Ocean – Nobil Catering owners Norm Imber and Bill McGinnity, and Lou Freedman, owner of the well-known local Margate restaurant, Bocca, have formed Nobil On The Ocean. The team is revamping the 11,300 square foot dining restaurant ACE (Atlantic City Eatery) along with Worship Surf Bar and 12 Bar. Laid-back and family-friendly, all three concepts will serve appetizers, pizzas and other casual eats along with cocktails, beer and wine. Worship Surf Bar is also now serving alcohol on the boardwalk. The restaurant and bars are intended to bring back life to the northern end of the boardwalk offering food and fun to visitors and casino workers.

Starcade – The brand new 3,200 square foot indoor vintage arcade is sure to delight videogame lovers of all ages. The arcade will include pinball machines, console games, pool tables and more.

Lynx Fitness – With 14,000 square feet of health and wellness amenities, Lynx Fitness will be the largest fitness facility in Atlantic City. It will be open to the public and members will have access to free parking.

Glowgolf – The already established Glowgolf has expanded by another 18 holes! The indoor miniature gold and laser challenge is also now accepting private parties for all occasions.

AC Deli – Owned by John Sentner, who has been in the family-owned business for over 40 years and has experience with food trucks in Atlantic City and a restaurant in Pennsylvania, this deli specializes in gourmet hoagies. The roast beef and roast pork are homemade, along with salads, wraps and paninis for a quick on-the-go meal.

Fruiggie – A healthy lifestyle is made easy with Fruiggie, the new juice and smoothie bar at Showboat. Owner Michael Tartaglia believes in using pure and natural ingredients in his products, making it simple to incorporate fruits and veggies into an everyday diet. The juices and smoothies are made fresh on premises to ensure deliciousness in every drink.
