Garces Events, with celebrity chef Jose Garces, will provide food and beverage offerings for all the restaurants at T Street, one portion of the pier.

Bonfire Entertainment from Philadelphia will bring in acts from virtually every music and entertainment genre for the seven venues at T Street, located on the pier’s first floor.

The Playground is the new name for what used to be The Pier Shops at Caesars. It’s slated to open June 26.
