As you may already be aware, Sydney now has a new casino that was formerly named Star City and is now called The Star. What do you think about the new casino that opened in September 2011? Do you like it or do you loathe it, and why?
The renovations have made the establishment look more like a casino as opposed to an RSL Club. The re-development has made way for some good eateries and a trendy food court and shopping area outside of the casino gaming area itself, although the gaming area has a bit of a facelift; it has not changed that much despite a few things being re-arranged including the gaming tables, and I guess it is one of those things with casinos: either you like them or you don't.
The ambience is definitely trendier and The Star is trying to position itself more as a new entertainment destination for Sydney rather than perceived as merely being a casino. I am considering trying out the day spa at The Darling, The Star's newest hotel.
