House of Blues Atlantic City
Atlantic City, New Jersey
The new House of Blues on the Atlantic City boardwalk hearkens back to the city's 1930s and '40s heyday, when it was known as the "world's favorite playground." Gensler renovated the 118,000-square-foot interior and boardwalk facade of the existing Showboat Casino in Streamline Moderne, a popular architectural style of the time. The project consists of a 2,000-person music hall, a "members only" room, a restaurant and nightclub, a poker room and a re-branded gaming area in the existing casino.
