40th Anniversary of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

Hara Resort Atlantic City celebrates its 40th anniversary this weekend, marking 40 years of achievements and milestones. Beloved across generations of three state regions, the premier Bayside resort destination has evolved to meet the ever-changing demand for new experiences and reach new customers. Over the years, Hara Resort has hosted hundreds of signature events and has welcomed guests, numerous celebrities, and many notable guests, making it a must-see hotel and casino in Atlantic City. In addition, this popular destination offers award-winning restaurants and offers stunning bay views, including the renovated Laguna Tower and waterfront tower.

Following the resort’s recent hotel renovation, newly formed Caesars Entertainment recently announced a total capital investment of $400 million over the next three years and a commitment to improvements at its Atlantic City resorts, Caesars, Tropicana and Hara resorts.

Last month, Harah’s Resort received a notable recognition in USA Today’s Top 10 Best Leaders vote by being named one of the top 10 casinos in the U.S. outside of Las Vegas. In addition, the Caesars Rewards ranked No. 1 for the nation’s top players’ club for the third consecutive year, bolstered by Atlantic City’s loosest slotted properties, providing the highest total slot recovery in a beachfront gaming town for the seventh consecutive year.

“With three premier resorts in the market, and as the largest employer in Atlantic County, Atlantic City is critical to the success of Caesars Entertainment,” said Steve Callender, Regional President for Caesars Entertainment. “Under the newly-formed Caesars Entertainment, we have over 60 million Caesars Rewards customers, many of whom live within driving distance of our properties. Having spent my entire career in the City, I have a special appreciation of this landmark 40th anniversary for Harrah’s Resort, the gaming industry and Atlantic City. 2020 has presented us with challenges unlike anything we have endured before over the past four decades. I am extremely grateful and proud of the teams at Harrah’s, Tropicana and Caesars, who continue to deliver first-class service to our guests, while putting health and safety at the forefront of the experience,” he added.

“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 & entertainment destination on the East Coast,” explained Ron Baumann, Senior Vice President & General Manager for Caesars & Harrah’s Resort. “But most importantly, however, is our dedication to helping make the community we serve a great place to both work and play. Through all the ebbs and flows this market has seen, including the unprecedented times we are living through right now, Harrah’s has continued to thrive over the last 40 years, and we attribute much of our success to our day-one employees who deliver top-notch service to our guests each day, and our loyal customers. While the celebration may look a bit different this year, we are unbelievably proud of our team members and thank our customers for their loyalty.”

A 40-Year Legacy

For the past 40 years, Harrah’s has hit many notable milestones; however, the destination is most proud to be home to 40 day one team members who have been with the company from the first day the resort opened its doors and are actively working right now. For more than four decades, these legacy team members have delivered superior customer service and a welcoming smile that Harrah’s loyal customers have come to know and love.

Known for delivering exceptional entertainment and dining, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City continues to offer guests curated experiences through an impressive roster of fine dining establishments. A notable restaurant is Gordon Ramsay Steak, celebrating two years as one of Atlantic City’s only two restaurants by a Michelin Star chef, and his only restaurants in the tri-state region. The celebrated television personality and 7-Michelin star chef opened his first steakhouse concept at Harrah’s in 2018.

“For me, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Harrah’s Resort has been one of the most exciting steak houses I’ve ever opened. Thank you to Caesars Entertainment for being a great partner, the team at Harrah’s helping bring this vision to life, and to our customers for their loyalty. I know this year has been difficult, but I can’t wait to get back to Harrah’s to help celebrate their 40th birthday.”- Gordon Ramsay

When Harrah’s doors reopened in July and outside dining was a premier amenity, the team found a creative way to give Gordon Ramsay Steak a “breath of fresh air” with a pop-up experience on the rooftop of the resort’s famed Pool, offering al fresco dining “Under The Stars.”

A 40-Year Commitment To The Community

Since opening its doors on 22 November 1980, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City has been committed to building a strong South Jersey community. In 2019, the resort supported hundreds of community organizations while empowering team members to do the same.

Caesars Entertainment and staff volunteers delivered over 40,000 pounds of food, including fresh dairy products, produce, canned food, and lunch meat, to people in need at the Southern New Jersey Community Food Bank, Salvation Army, and Atlantic City Rescue Mission Foods. To ensure nothing goes to waste, recently deceased items were donated to Fun Farm Animal Rescue in Mays Landing, New Jersey.

Recently, the company is focusing on fighting food insecurity in the region, where the pandemic has affected many residents across the Atlantic County, starting with a recent $5,527 donation.

Expanding their commitment to the community further, Hara Resort has delivered pre-made sandwiches to more than a dozen local organizations led by Hara’s cooking team every week. The sandwiches will be used for lunch to support the Boys and Girls Club’s new after-school programs and youth centers and to help local non-profit organizations fighting food insecurity and homelessness in Atlantic City. Recently, more than 180 sandwiches have been donated to Covenant House, which provides shelter for youth homelessness in the city, and 150 sandwiches have recently been delivered to Turning Point, an organization dedicated to fighting homelessness in the city, and will continue weekly as needed.
