"Caesars New York exemplifies the high-growth opportunities that Caesars Growth Partners was established to pursue," said Mitch Garber, CEO of Caesars Acquisition Company. "We are excited about the opportunity to develop in Woodbury."
The proposed resort, situated on a wooded 115-acre site in Woodbury, will include approximately 300 luxury hotel rooms, suites and villas, 2,560 state-of-the-art slot machines, 190 table games and 50 poker tables. The poker room will carry the World Series of Poker brand and become a leading East Coast home to the WSOP and its events, many of which are broadcast on ESPN. Caesars New York will include a flexible entertainment space, ideally suited for business meetings, celebrations, entertainment and WSOP circuit events.
The resort will also add a world-class dining program to the Hudson Valley, potentially including restaurants from some of the celebrity chefs who work with Caesars across its network of properties. The six planned restaurants include a range of concepts from fine dining to a Streets of New York food hall concept featuring cuisine from local restaurateurs. Caesars has successfully showcased local operators in many of its properties around the country. Among those who have expressed interest in developing a restaurant at Caesars New York are Gordon Ramsay and Nobu Matsuhisa. Caesars New York will also include a luxury spa and fitness center.
