HOW IT STARTED

HOW IT STARTED

Bally’s Kansas City introduces an exclusive one-of-a-kind VIP gaming and lounge experience to the Midwest.

Celebrity Casino & Lounge, located on the second floor of the casino, offers over 30 slot machines ranging from pennies to $5 machines including video and reel, one blackjack table, one baccarat table, and a unique dining experience.

“When viewing this space, I immediately knew how we could attract premium players who thought our facility was not for them and hence Celebrity Casino & Lounge was created. Celebrity Casino & Lounge is a “casino within a casino” and is located in a premium space with views of the Kansas City skyline.  We are excited to introduce this unique concept to Bally’s Kansas City and to the market,” said Phil Juliano, Executive VP of Casino Operations & Chief Marketing Officer at Bally’s Corporation.

In addition to gaming, Celebrity Casino & Lounge features Jerry Longo’s Meatballs & Martinis: “Italian Soul Food” which is authentic and unpretentious Italian cuisine that focuses on the finest imported and freshest local ingredients, custom-crafted cocktails, and a refined wine selection.  Hand-crafted cocktails can be enjoyed at the beautifully designed bar.  Each week members will be introduced to a new menu featuring appetizers, entrées and desserts.  All served within an authentic, fun, energized environment that includes live music on Fridays and Saturdays.

"We believe Celebrity Casino & Lounge will be a great new amenity for our VIP players and will continue to add more reasons to visit the property,” said Michael Donovan, Regional Vice President & General Manager – Midwest at Bally's Kansas City.

Jerry Longo is a well-known casino player development executive and restaurateur who hosted the biggest casino players and celebrities in the business. Jerry is the creator of many once-in-a-lifetime special events featuring the cast of The Sopranos, Sophia Lauren, and Michael Jordan to name a few.  His idea to combine these private events with a menu filled with his grandmother and mother’s recipes and food from his roots in Rome and South Philly completed the perfect guest experience that was remembered for decades. 

Noted for his detail-oriented personalized service, his relationships with players and celebrities developed into lifelong friendships.  As a result, Jerry was invited and appeared in several episodes of The Sopranos and is often mentioned on Steve Schirripa and Michael Imperioli’s popular “Talking Sopranos” podcast. 

Jerry’s love and passion for food led him to develop the Longo brand and his meatballs are known all over the world, recognized by La Cucina Magazine, and mentioned on the Oprah Winfrey show by award-winning actor Richard Jenkins who regularly visits his establishments.

Longo Brand restaurants are headquartered in Rhode Island with its flagship operation in Westerly, RI with outlets located within Bally’s properties at Lincoln, RI, Atlantic City, NJ, and Dover, DE.
