New York City wears its nickname “The City That Never Sleeps” with pride. Yes, it is true that the Big Apple boasts plenty of attractions, entertainment venues, retailers and restaurants that cater to a late-night clientele, but when it comes to the “Never Sleeps” part of the epithet, most of these destinations call it a night by 2 a.m. at the latest. This can be frustrating for us night owls, because New Yorkers like to work hard and play even harder. After putting in anywhere from eight to 10 hours at the office, city dwellers yearn for a destination where late-night entertainment is always on offer.
Gotham’s only casino is home to an eclectic mix of entertainment, diverse dining and, of course, adrenaline-inducing gaming. So, if you want to keep the party going after the clubs let out, or just want to have some fun gaming, eating and drinking, you can always count on Resorts World Casino to have its lights on. Below is a guide to experiencing NYC’s No. 1 haven for the lovers of the after-dark scene.
Resorts World Casino is open from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m., which pretty much means you can get your game on from morning to night and back to morning again. More than 5,500 slots and electronic table games are stationed throughout the Times Square and Fifth Avenue casinos—two separate gaming destinations located inside the sprawling Queens’ attraction. If you think you have what it takes to hang with the high rollers or just want to play for fun, try your luck at electronic blackjack, roulette or craps. Baccarat more up your alley? Head to Table Games Square and take part in the card game for as little as $10.
After-Dark Entertainment for Clubgoers, Sports Fans & More
Bar 360, located in the Times Square Casino, is open until the early hours and hosts a wide range of events and musical acts. Essentially a sports bar, concert venue and nightclub all rolled into one, Bar 360 has an event to please any tastes seven days a week. During the week, visitors to the space—which features a full bar and center stage—don casual attire to rock out to lively cover bands and crowd-pleasing headliners. Entertainment is free, so go ahead and reserve a private booth to watch the action unfold like a VIP. Bar 360 is also a must-visit destination to watch your favorite sports team take home the win on the venue’s 16' x 28' screen, which features a rotating lineup of games throughout the year.
The area transforms into the nightclub, aptly called Club 360, Friday and Saturday nights. During the weekend, patrons dress to impress with their best club attire, celebrity DJs man the turntable and Club 360 dancers shake it on the dance floor. If you need a little liquid encouragement before busting a move, try one of the venue’s creative cocktails or order bottle service for you and 10 of your closest pals.
Non-stop gaming and dancing can definitely work up an appetite. If you’re in Resorts World in the early evening, satisfy carnivorous cravings at RW Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar. This classic chophouse—complete with dark wood accents, soft lighting, crisp white tablecloths and plush chairs—is the perfect setting to enjoy succulent seafood appetizers, melt-in-your-mouth steaks and hearty sides—giving you the pick-me-up needed to get back to the gaming table or dance floor.
