Thanks for that update VegasIsland. I was not successful watching the ResortsCam [I am guessing their server was overloaded as I was successful around sunset]. I did not notice any mention of it on the Philly news. But I did find an article on it here nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/07/margaritaville…

Woooh year round beach bar. Ballys and Trump should have done this years ago.

I'm curious what the yearround beachbar will be. Perhaps similar to Caesars Pier adirondack chairs, but with booze & food delivered by servers in swimsuits?

This will be interesting to see how they will complete this project on time. They are apparently rebuilding the old steeplechase pier for some of these bars. Talk about fast track permits, building a pier on the beach these days is normally no easy task permit wise. To have a year round beach bar it will have to be enclosed and most likely on the pier as winter storms frequently brings the ocean storm tides close to the boardwalk.

I hope this newest venture is a success for Resorts. I just don't know if the Margaritaville theme is popular enough to pack three or four bars/restaurants as well as stores.

What are your opinions, if you're in a resort town that has a Margaritaville bar is that on your must list to visit or do you only stop in if you're already walking by or do you not visit at all?

my decisions about where to dine and drink in casino towns are almost always made according to where i have RFB or comps.

i have eaten in the margaritaville at the flamingo in vegas, i have eaten at the one in mohegan sun. i played for several hours at the margaritaville-themed casino at the flamingo in vegas. but i've only once eaten at a non-casino affiliated magaritaville property. i would not personally seek out a magraritavile as a destination restaurant, even though all my experiences thus far have been pleasant.

outside of key west and waikiki, the atlantic city location seems the one most in tune with the margaritaviille concept. i think it will be a huge success. and, yes, i think the theme can be sustained over several locations within and adjacent to resorts. (typically a margaritaville complex includes a store, restaurant and bar... sometimes even a hotel and an airline!)

I think this is interesting and hope it works out.. I think the theme being spread out in several locations around Resorts will be good - it'll add a festive atmosphere..I hope its successful!
