Resorts Casino & Hotel’s tag line is “The Fun is Here” and let me say – that is an understatement!
There is so much to love about Resorts Casino, Atlantic City’s most gay friendly casino and home to the area’s only casino gay nightclub, Pro Bar!
RESORTS CASINO & HOTEL HISTORY:
Resorts Casino was the first casino hotel inside of Atlantic City, and the first legal casino outside of Nevada.
On May 26, 1978, with crowds of people lined up on the Boardwalk, Resorts International opened its doors for business!
Resorts has become synonymous with superior service, world-class casino gambling, luxurious accommodations, fine dining, and the biggest and brightest stars in entertainment.
Today, Resorts Casino Hotel is situated on 11 acres of land with approximately 310 feet of Boardwalk frontage overlooking the Atlantic Ocean!
Resorts offers guests 942 hotel rooms and suites in two hotel towers: the oceanfront 15-story Ocean tower, and the magnificent showpiece, the new $125 million, 27-story luxury Rendezvous Tower!
Resorts Casino has 99, 951-square foot casino, featuring non-stop excitement and action 24 hours a day at more than 80 table games and more than 2,500 slot machines.
In addition to the casino and hotel facilities, Resorts includes a 1,350-seat showroom, a 300-seat theater, six restaurants, two VIP slot and table player lounges, an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, Boogie Nights dance club, two lounges, a salon, a health club and spa and retail shops. Resorts also offers approximately 39,000 square feet of convention facilities, including seven meeting rooms and a 13,000 square foot ballroom.
Resorts Casino Hotel is located at the northern end of the famed Boardwalk in Atlantic City, along with eight other of Atlantic City’s 12 casinos. Neighboring Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and Showboat Hotel and Casino are connected to Resorts via enclosed pedestrian bridges, making it easy for guests to walk from property to property without going outdoors. These three properties have a total of approximately 3,900 hotel rooms, approximately 339,000 square feet of gaming space, and account for almost 30 percent or 8.7 million of the visitors to Atlantic City. Six additional Atlantic City casino hotels are located approximately .5 mile to 1.5 miles to the south on the boardwalk, with the remaining three in the Marina District of Atlantic City.

WHAT’S NEW at RESORTS CASINO & HOTEL?
As a HUGE Jimmy Buffett fan, and a self-professed parrothead, I was BEYOND excited when I learned about the Margaritaville Complex that opened at Resorts Casino & Hotel in May 2013!
The resort partnered with none other than Jimmy Buffett himself to bring the Margaritaville brand to Atlantic City.
The Margaritaville complex at Resorts completely embraces the lifestyle featuring a Margaritaville themed casino, Margaritaville restaurant, Five O’clock Somewhere Bar, retail stores, LandShark Bar and Grill, a year-round beach bar complex, and the first ever Margaritaville coffee shop.
Additionally, Resorts Boardwalk facade has been re-themed with the Margaritaville brand.
FINS, UP all my Jimmy fans!!

GAY & LESBIAN FACTOR: As mentioned earlier, Resorts Casino & Hotel is the only casino that is home to a LGBT nightclub, PRO BAR! Not only are they obviously lgbt welcoming, they are proactive in marketing to the LGBT community! In addition to Pro Bar, they are also home to a great show called “Diva’s Do AC“, a female and celebrity impersonator show. I can also say, from a personal standpoint, the staff at Resorts Casino & Hotel has been extremely hospitable and eager to work with Gay Travel Information. This is, hands down, the best option for LGBT nightlife in Atlantic City and a gay friendly atmosphere. I happily “OUT” Resorts Casino & Hotel as LGBT friendly and beyond worthy of our business.
Atlantic City as a whole is a FUN place to visit! It is a distinct destination with beautiful beaches and the world-famous boardwalk.
Resorts Casino & Hotel stands out by providing FUN for EVERYONE! They do so in a laid back, genuine, authentic atmosphere holding true to all that makes the Jersey shore so spectacular.
It is a MUST visit destination – any time of the year.
Bravo all around, Resorts!!! XOXO
