Atlantic City may have a reputation when it comes to clientele and quality of stay. However, newer resorts are breaking that mold and changing the way we think about “America’s Playground.”
The Ocean Casino Resort is modern, luxurious, family-friendly, and relatively new—as it’s currently celebrating its fifth birthday. Spanning 20 beachfront acres, Ocean towers over AC (literally) by holding the record for the tallest building in Atlantic City. Its name is appropriate as every suite has an ocean view with floor-to-ceiling windows and is within walking distance of the Observation Wheel.
To commemorate its fifth year of business, Ocean is celebrating all summer long. From Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day, anyone can visit their website to spin a digital slot machine for a chance to win millions in prizes. However, the fun doesn’t stop there.
The Birthday Bar Pop-Up Experience, a limited-time-only bar inside the casino decorated with balloons, streamers, and string lights, opened on June 30. This pop-up has birthday-themed cocktails, including a Birthday Cake Martini that’s filled with strawberry chocolate goodness. Guests can take advantage of several photo-op stations that have Instagram-worthy backdrops and excellent selfie lighting.

If missing the birthday party, don’t fret. Ocean offers high-end accommodations throughout the year. The most prevalent would of course be the casino itself, taking over an entire floor of the hotel. With around 2,000 slot machines and 125 table games, there’s a chance for everyone to scratch the gambling itch.
The Casino also hosts NOLA’s Bar & Lounge, Ocean’s nightclub that’s open until 3 a.m. on weekends and often hosts events, live music, and DJs. But the entertainment doesn’t stop there. Ovation Hall always has something exciting on deck like events including movie screenings, comedy shows, and live music.
HQ2 Nightclub and Beachclub is a unique two-in-one venue that combines a nightlife experience with a 45,000-square-foot beach club where the party lasts all day long. To relax after time spent partying, take advantage of the Exhale Spa + Bathhouse, voted the number one spa in New Jersey and named one of the Top 100 Spas of 2021 by Spas of America.
After a massage and facial, hide away in an oasis at The Cabanas at Ocean. With a private pool, lunch offerings, and cocktails—it’s highly likely you won’t want to leave.
It’s impressive how Ocean caters to all ages and interests. Kiddos can relax in the indoor/outdoor pool during the day before the adults take over the nightclubs. Events are continuous and cater to a wide range of viewers. Customers are guaranteed to find something of interest on the calendar.

Gastronomy is also diverse at Ocean. With fine dining options available like Amada, Ocean Steak, or Linguini By The Sea, there is plenty of room to have an upscale experience and even celebrate a special event. The District is a culinary haven behind the casino filled with more casual dining options. With sushi, southern comfort, and various happy hours—there’s no stone left unturned.
From the beach to betting, there’s zero chance of boredom. At Ocean, you can keep all members of the family entertained all day long. This peace of mind elevates the vacation experience, so be prepared to stay a while.
