Golden Nugget Casino IS Opening Despite Murphy Ban on Indoor Dining


ATLANTIC CITY, NJ –  Earlier incorrect reports cited Phil Murphy’s indoor dining ban as a signal that could be bad news for the casino industry in New Jersey, but the Golden Nugget today announced they WILL be opening as scheduled on July 2nd.

Here’s a release from the casino:

Golden Nugget Atlantic City will be reopening our doors on Thursday July 2, at 6:01a, pending final DGE approval. Over the past few months, in conjunction with our sister properties in other jurisdictions, as well as the “CANJ”, we have developed a health and sanitation plan that makes the health and well-being of our Team Members and Guests our #1 priority.

Under State order, all guests, and team members will be required to wear masks. The full details of out Health and Sanitation plan will be made available online and at the Front Desk.

Here are details regarding our reopening:

Our Casino Floor will reopen at 6:01a on July 2nd. Slots will operate 24 hours a day. Table Games will close from 4a to 12p daily.

On Friday July 3, 2020, the Deck will be open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. B – 8a to 12p, L/D 12p to 8p (Sun – Thu) and 12p to 10p Fri and Sat. The Deck will also be available for “To Go” orders. Depending on demand and capacity limitations, we may need to implement Open Table to allow guests to make reservations. We will send a notification if this is implemented.

Since Food and Beverage is not allowed to be consumed indoors in a public space, coffee will be made available for sale at The Deck.

Room Service will be available for our Hotel Guests from 12p to 12a daily (modified menu).

Essentials, located across from the front desk, will be open 24 hours. Essentials will offer packaged liquor and “To Go” food items for guests to take to their room, or off property.

24 Karat will be open Thu 12p to 8p; Fri and Sat 1p to 11p; Sun and Mon 12p to 8p. The Casino Cage will handle all 24 Karat transactions when the 24 Karat is closed.

Unfortunately, Valet will be closed at this time. Valet may be used for drop off and pick up only. We will continue to offer Free Self Parking for all of our guests.

I understand there will be a million questions. As always, please send any questions that you might have, and I will do my best to answer everything I can, given the information I have at this time.

The entire Golden Nugget family thank you for your patient and understanding during these unprecedented times. We look forward to seeing you soon at Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
