Showboat Atlantic City is a Mardi Gras themed casino located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. In 1998, the property was purchased by Harrah's Entertainment, now Caesars Entertainment, which has since sold off similar Showboat themed properties in other cities. Showboat Atlantic City contains the House of Blues restaurant and has suites under the House of Blues name. In May 2003, the Showboat hotel added a 544 room, $90 million hotel tower called the Orleans Tower. In 2007, the hotel remodeled its original tower, the Bourbon Tower.
In March 1987, the Showboat Hotel and Casino opened with 516 rooms and a 60,000 sq.ft. casino. It was built on property just north of the Trump Taj Mahal. The resort opened with a 60-lane bowling center that operated until 2002. Steelman Partners completed major renovation in 1995 that created the Mardi Gras theme. Showboat was the first casino in Atlantic City to open a simulcast area. In the past decade, the casino has seen many improvements, including the new hotel tower and a House of Blues on the boardwalk, along with a complete renovation of the boardwalk facade.
