Maybe because it was mid-week in April, but it was deserted. Literally about 15 people were walking around and it made it feel very strange. The outdoor deck for ocean viewing was closed for some reason, so that was disappointing. There is a nice row...More

The playground is a pretty decent hangout spot and conveniently located between Caesars and Ballys. Decently priced.

I'm not sure if it's the economy or Atlantic City has just lost a lot of luster in the past few years but a lot of the shops have moved out and the place seems to be a lot less taken care of. This used...More

A nice break from the casino. It's a good mall and restaurant type area on a converted pier right outside of Caesars. Lots of clubs and bar type places to hang out too. It's clean and the clientele is decent.

It was a nice break to get inside. Cute stores and great views of the ocean. Check out the third floor. It's pretty neat.

The architecture of this building is superb . It's a shame there is not more stores. It was a nice place to walk around in the cold weather to walk off a great dinner.

Yes there is-at least that's what Starbucks website says. I just put the address of Caesars Playground into Starbucks website under store locator. So it says yes!!! You can have your delicious coffee!!!! Have fun!!!
I understand the Pier Shops is now called the Playground. Is that right? Is there anything that's honestly worth going in there to see and do? I don't high end shop. I use to sit on the upper floor and watch the ocean view. I enjoyed the Candy store too. Did they add entertainment venues yet? I heard a movie theater was going in and a bowling alley. I also heard there was to be numerous themed bars eventually. Can anyone fill me in with a quick synopsis of what there is? Thanks.

Good morning. It's correct: Pier Shop is Playground. To watch the ocean you can take a coffee to Starbucks and seat to watch. I think that Candy store is the best that you can find inside.

It appears as if the water show is no longer there is that correct? Also, there used to be an indoor beach viewing area with sand and Adirondack chairs is that still there?

The water show has been gone since at least October 2014, sadly. The sand on the 3rd floor is gone but the Adirondack chairs are still there and a great place for ocean gazing and people watching.
