Fodor's Expert Review Showboat Atlantic City
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Showboat is one of the northernmost casinos on the Boardwalk, located just south of the Garden Pier. Filled with hypercolor murals that offer no place for weary eyes to rest, it spins the Mardi Gras theme into an almost psychedelic experience. The main attraction here is the local outlet of The House of Blues, which hosts national touring acts from all genres of popular music. A connecting fireside lounge known as The Foundation Room used to be a member's only club, but recently opened their doors to everyone, giving the casino a one-two punch of concerts and cocktails.
