“We would love to continue operating the Beach Bar; it’s just economics,” said Trump spokesman Brian Cahill. “Revel opened their nonunion beach operations late this year, but they will be open all season next summer. Margaritaville, also nonunion, will be open Memorial Day weekend,” Cahill continued. “The truth is that union wages and severance funds do not allow us to compete against the nonunion beach bars like Revel and Margaritaville.”
Trump officials are currently looking to sell the Plaza and other properties in order to focus more time and money on its flagship Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort.
