Golden Nugget

The Golden Nugget casino in Atlantic City.


ATLANTIC CITY — Golden Nugget Atlantic City will celebrate the completion of its $150 million makeover with a grand opening ceremony today headed by the casino’s owner, Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta.

Fertitta, owner of the Houston-based Landry’s Inc. casino, restaurant and entertainment empire, bought the former Trump Marina Hotel Casino last year for $38 million and rebranded it into the Golden Nugget.

Golden Nugget has spent the last 11 months remodeling the casino floor, refurbishing the hotel rooms and adding new restaurants, retail shops, lounges and an upscale spa. A 4 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony today will showcase the renovation project and kick off grand-opening festivities continuing through Sunday, including a fireworks display Friday and Saturday nights.
