Atlantic City’s Newest Gem: The Revel

Last Tuesday, I had the opportunity of checking out the Revel in Atlantic City.  Here’s a tip if you plan on checking out this new destination…plan on staying at another casino and take advantage of the cheaper room rates.  I happened to have a comped room at Harrah’s which allowed me to save money on the room and gamble it away instead.  I took a taxi over to Revel so I could take advantage of the complimentary drinks while playing the slots and table games.

When walking in the door of the Revel, here’s what you see.

 

This crazy escalator is only the first set of three escalators spanning the floors of entertainment that await you.  The first floor is the casino floor as seen in the picture below.
There are extravagant light fixtures and furniture everywhere.  This is the preview to the grand opening over Memorial Day weekend so not everything is open and fully functioning.  There is a band that performs every night off to the side of the casino in what I’d like to call a mini auditorium.  I am looking forward to going to the burlesque club in the fall.  It was not open when I was there last week but the sign said that it was opening over Easter weekend.  If it is anything like what I’ve seen so far, I’m sure it is every bit as extravagant as the lounge in the movie Burlesque.  Who knows? Maybe Christina will perform there some day.
Those are the bathrooms!  It’s so pretty I had to take a picture.
Beyonce is performing three nights over Memorial Day weekend for the grand opening.  The tickets start at $95 and go up to $500.  Better save up if you plan on attending that concert.  I think I’ll just wait until September and take advantage of the off-season…Sorry Sasha Fierce!
