The 2,000-room Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City will invest more than $50 million to enhance the property in 2016. Plans call for an additional 25,000 square feet of conference space on two levels, and will include a 7,000-square-foot ballroom, four meeting rooms, a boardroom, an office and prefunction space on each level.

The property also is adding the Premier Nightclub, an 18,000-square-foot venue designed by Josh Held, who also designed Marquee NYC, TAO Las Vegas and Voyeur Los Angeles. A new restaurant by celebrity chef Michael Symon will be built, as well. A new outdoor pool and entertainment grounds will debut this year with more than 400 chaise lounges, daybeds and cabanas; a full-service canopied bar; an entertainment stage, and a variety of lawn games and activities, all centered around a 3,200-square-foot Roman-style pool. The 1,000-capacity space will transform from hotel pool into entertainment hotspot throughout the course of the summer. 

Borgata will partner with restaurateur and real estate developer George Siganos this spring to unveil The Marketplace Eatery, a casual dining experience located below Borgata's Poker Room and The Racebook. Supplanting the space currently occupied by The Cafeteria, The Marketplace will offer an array of fresh, quick-service fare.

The property currently has more than 87,000 square feet of meeting space.
