Atlantic City will soon see an old face back on the boardwalk. Claridge hotel and casino, which was closed in 2002 and has been operating as part of the Ballys complex for a number of years, is set to reopen in its own right this May.
The new Claridge hotel, which will still be connected to the Bally resort via a second floor walkway, will once again operate as a stand alone hotel and casino.
The Florida based company which now owns the location made a statement recently with regards to the hotel’s relaunch, confirming that Claridge will be designed to capture the essence of the roaring 20’s. From the casino design to the aesthetics of the bars, clubs and restaurant areas in the hotel, the 1920’s theme will be a central focus.
Claridge will feature a small, intimate casino. This will bring the number of active casinos in Atlantic City back up to 12.
The hotel will open for business just in time for Memorial Day weekend. We are currently waiting for details about the new features, restaurants, shopping and entertainment facilities which will be included in this revived resort.
Stay tuned for more news about this grand reopening of one of the most famous hotels to have ever graced the AC. We will bring you more news and special features to celebrate the relaunch as they become available to us.
