Wined and Dined: Harrah’s has plenty of choices when it comes down to what to eat. Some could cost you your winnings, but others will keep the chips in your pockets. You just have to know where to look, because a lot of them are new.
Bluepoint: Part of The Steakhouse, Bluepoint is a raw bar that’s perfect to start your evening. They specialize in seafood, shellfish and martinis. The best part is you don’t have to do the fishing yourself!
McCormick & Schmick’s: This seafood chain features more than 30 seafood varieties with more than 80 different preparations. With steaks to choose from, too, it may not be the best place to bring someone indecisive.
The Steakhouse: Specializing in, what else? Steak! Choose your cut and they’ll make it to order and pair it with a vintage wine from its glass-enclosed cellar that you can see inside of from the dining room.
Dos Caminos: A new restaurant from the New York-based BR Guest, and the first Mexican restaurant in an Atlantic City casino, Dos Caminos brings all of the south-of-the-border flavor you’ve come to love. Enjoy everything from quesadillas to tacos and fajitas. Fresh guacamole is made table-side and is amazing. No passport necessary.
Luke Palladino: One of the newer restaurants at Harrah’s, Chef Luke Palladino brings his signature Italian cuisine to Atlantic City. The chef also does his part for the local economy and the environment by using fresh local farm foods and making handcrafted pasta, made fresh daily with organic eggs. Plus, you get all the sauce - er, gravy - you need.
Cafe Tazza: If caffeine is what you need, head here for gourmet coffee, cappuccino and espresso, not to mention some homemade soups, bistro-style sandwiches and pastries. Please note, a double espresso does not increase your chances of winning at the tables.
Taste of the Shore Food Court: If your pockets are running on empty after a night of gambling, drinking and we won’t ask what else, head here to have all the cheap eats you need. Find Walt’s Original Primo Pizza, Sack O’Subs, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Philly Soft Pretzels and Starbucks.
Temptations: What’s that? You have a hankering for chocolate and you don’t know where to turn? Fear not! Temptations has all the chocolate you need with some gourmet flair from New York’s Jacques Torres and cupcakes from New York’s Crumbs. Chocolate candies and chocolate drinks pair well with their espresso, wines and champagne. Keep in mind, the furniture and employees are not made of chocolate.
Waterfront Buffet: Maybe you’re indecisive, maybe you’re just starving. Head to the Waterfront Buffet, where you don’t have to decide and you can get a little bit of everything: American, Italian, Asian wok and Mongolian barbecue, seafood, rodizio, sushi and dim sum.
Bill’s Bar and Burger: Sometimes a burger is all you need for it to feel like summer. Pair that with one of their milkshakes, and some would consider it the American dream. Except in this American dream, you can add alcohol to your milkshakes. From BR Guest.
Sammy D’s: BR Guest’s new café by Chef Sammy DeMarco of New York and Las Vegas fame brings a creative twist to food. Try the lollipop Buffalo wings or the pretzel-crusted mac and cheese. The best part is, it’s open 24 hours on Saturdays, so when you’re getting out of the clubs early Saturday morning, this will end your evening on a high note. A great, creative breakfast, lunch and dinner spot with an awesome bar. It’s the kind of food you would find on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”
Party Rocking at Harrah’s:
Eden Lounge: The perfect place to go at Harrah’s if you want to kick back, relax, listen to some live music and play some video poker. And the best part is, nothing is forbidden in this part of Eden. Offers some of the best cover bands the city has to offer.
The Pool After Dark: Rated one of the best nightclubs in the country, you’ll understand why once you walk in. The Pool is 172,000 square feet of entertainment. Apart from the giant pool in the center of it all, private cabanas and hot tubs line the outer rim and a glass dome ceiling offers a view of Harrah’s tower and whatever stars are out that night. There is even The Loft, where blackjack tables and a separate bar fill the space and overlook the party downstairs. It’s the only Atlantic City club with gaming tables inside. Few people actually ever get in the pool and hot tubs at night, which is probably a good thing considering the alcohol specials.
Xhibition Bar: If you feel like partying, but another night on your heels sounds impossible, head here, where a circular bar in the middle of the casino floor gives you a prime seat for people-watching and catching games on 50-inch plasmas. Too shy for face-to-face interaction? The bar offers Microsoft surfaces where you can use a flirt application and order drinks. It’s like the adult version of poking someone on Facebook.
Look sexy, feel sexy:
Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa: One of the city’s best spas, Red Door gives you everything you need to feel pampered, including luxury suites on the 44th floor that include treatment rooms. Some people’s homes aren’t as big. In the spa, get all the treatments you need, from massages to skincare, hair design and more. You can also get poolside massages in a cabana at The Pool. At least you don’t have to worry about them spoiling you.
Fitness Center: If spending an entire night dancing at The Pool isn’t enough exercise, head here to find all the equipment you need to keep your daily routine of gym, tanning and laundry.
The Pool: Looking to get some sun? By day, The Pool becomes an 82-degree oasis of sunbathing and swimming and the perfect place to reflect on everything you did at the club the night before.
Waterfront Shops: Located in the Waterfront Tower, you can find Swatch, Destinations, Pandora, Park Place Jewelers, Top Drawer and Studio Shoes. Everything you need to make up for any lost luggage during your trip.
So much room for activities:
Viking Cooking School: Want a more hands-on approach to your wining and dining experience at Harrah’s? Head to the Viking Cooking School, where you can take a professional course on creating a full-course menu. Then you get to relax in the dining room and feast on the dishes you created along with wine and cocktails.
Concert Venue: Seating 1,205 guests in its newly renovated venue, Harrah’s is up to par with the rest of Atlantic City when it comes to seeing the hottest acts in show business.
Family Fun Center: If you brought your kids to Atlantic City or you just feel like acting like a kid for a while, head here, where you can play on 25 arcade games and earn enough credits to take something home from the prize redemption center. You can also enjoy a family pool and hot tub, 18 holes of miniature golf, outdoor tanning deck area, the Water Wars water balloon game, shuffleboard, music and a beverage bar. Who needs a casino?
Gaming: Harrah’s features more than 3,800 slot and video poker machines on its casino floor as well as all the table games you’ll ever need
