The shopping pier at The Playground Caesars is a great place to relax after a day in the Casino, Some good restaurants and pubs along with upscale shops. Great views of the Ocean and AC skyline form the pier decks. Pier should be more active in the spring and summer. Worth the trip. Pete

I just visited yesterday after a long time and it looked like a "ghost mall". many shops are closed and I think almost all of the restaurants are gone as well. not sure if it gets better summer time but in...

The architecture of this building is superb . It's a shame there is not more stores. It was a nice place to walk around in the cold weather to walk off a great dinner.

My main reason for coming into this shopping mall is for the Lush store, but my fiance and I always stop to get lunch in the food court which is average and won't break your wallet. There are a few stores in here we don't have back home so its cool to walk around and see new things. The overall... More

We have been there every year for 10 years and it gets worse every year. Most of the stores are empty and many restaurants have left. I wonder if they pay the ones left to stay. I noticed this time the place is not as clean and getting run down. Sad. The best is the lawn chairs on the 3rd... More

Playground Pier Mall is a excellent place for up scale shopping. The food here is top of the line excellent. Stores here are out standing excellent. The person who designed this place do a out standing excellent job. Light show was excellent and very well done.

Lots of cool themed bars but not much business in any of them, some were even empty. I did see a dueling piano type show which was awesome but the whole place seems to close early. the website isnt much help to see what is going on in each bar either. There is a cool craft beer place that has... More

I visited in December, 2016 and a couple of the shops I liked had already closed, but, worse, I found out some other shops' leases were expiring at the end of the month and they would close, including Lush and the Starbucks with the amazing view of the beach. I will only go back for It's Sugar - as far... More

I hadn't been to the Playground at Ceasars for over 3 years (it used to be the Pier Shops at Ceasars) and what a difference that time has made! On a Saturday afternoon the mall was empty, more than half of the stores spaces are vacant and more than a 1/3 of the mall is completely closed off, which was... More
