Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino To Permanantly Close Its Beach Bar
“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.
The beach bar at the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino will be closing down permanently due to competition from nonunion beach bars at
other Atlantic City casinos. The bar's last day of operations will be September 16.
According to Trump Plaza officials, the bar can no longer compete with nonunion beach bars such as the one at Revel and the Margaritaville beach bar that will be opening next year at Resorts Casino Hotel. There are also non-union beach bars at Bally’s and The Atlantic Club.
