Harrah’s Atlantic City celebrates 40th anniversary CDC Gaming Reports · November 20, 2020 at 1:36 pm Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City celebrates its 40th anniversary this weekend, commemorating four decades of milestones. When the resort opened its doors on November 22, 1980, it was the fifth hotel-casino in Atlantic City, and 40 Day One team members have been with the company from that first day and are actively working right now. Recently, the Laguna and Coastal towers were renovated and Caesars Entertainment has announced a $400 million investment in capital investments and improvements at its Atlantic City resorts — Caesars, Tropicana, and Harrah’s — over the next three years. Among the restaurant at Harrah’s is Gordon Ramsay Steak, one of Atlantic City’s only two restaurants by a Michelin Star chef, and his only restaurants in the tri-state region. The steakhouse has sold nearly 90,000 steaks since it opened two years ago. Additionally, Harrah’s Code Green initiative, part of the company’s People, Planet, Play platform, provides an eco-friendly guestroom experience and LEED-certified $125 million Waterfront Conference Center. In 2019, the resort supported hundreds of community organizations while empowering team members to do the same. During the shutdown due to the pandemic, Caesars Entertainment donated over 95% of its perishable food to local organizations. “For almost half a century now, Harrah’s Resort has been committed to Atlantic City and has helped lead the way in positioning the city as a leading gaming and entertainment destination on the East Coast,” said Ron Baumann, Senior Vice President & General Manager for Caesars & Harrah’s Resort.
