Atlantic City's Borgata prepares for 26 July reopening

14 July 2020

The Borgata, Atlantic City’s most successful casino, will later this month become the last of the city’s nine resorts to reopen after the novel coronavirus lockdown.

The MGM Resorts International property will reopen to the general public on Sunday, 26 July following its closure earlier this year amidst the coronavirus crisis. The Borgata said in a statement that its amenity offerings initially will be limited, with plans to open more fully in the coming weeks and months.

The hotel, which has 2,000 guest rooms and suites and 106,000 square feet of event space, was the only property to not immediately reopen on 2 July, the first day that New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy allowed casinos to do so.

"Following the Governor’s directive to postpone indoor dining, we took a step back to reassess our reopening date to ensure we could give our guests the world-class experience they expect from us, safely," said Melonie Johnson, the Borgata’s president and chief operating officer.

"When we reopen, Borgata will introduce new outdoor dining experiences, as well as a convenient takeout programme from several of our fine and casual dining outlets. We appreciate our guests’ and employees’ patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming them back."
