PAM ANDERSON PARX CASINO Hosting the Grand Opening of the club 360 THREE SIXTY
Saturday night brought a little glam sex kitten to our area as Actress Pamela Anderson arrive at Parx Casino, which opened last month at Philadelphia Park in Bensalem to rave reviews. Saturday night was the grand opening of 360, the lounge and nightclub located on the casino floor.Arriving fairly punctual at 9:10PM Pam spent a few minutes on the carpet before whisking off to the club. (I had a chance to use the ring flash I talked about all last week, one that she requested for the photographers. I have to say I love it and will be buying it instead of returning it as it was rented.)A destination itself, the upscale 360 lounge, a huge bar by day, that transfers into a nightclub at night, is situated right next to the property’s west entrance. Revelers can go to the club without ever passing a slot machine, but don’t worry inside the club there are about 8 machines if you choose to play them. Below is the entrance from the casino floor.
The club itself, with seating for 70 and a total capacity of 160, is a state-of-the-art facility with a 40-foot stage, a 40,000-watt sound system and three 108-inch LED TVs-and, of course, an LED lava-lit dance floor that pulsates to the beat of the music, whether it’s from the custom DJ booth (house DJ Maria Laina will be assisted by occasional visits from celebrity DJs) or a variety of live dance acts, tribute bands, cover bands and dance shows. (Thanks to Heather Yerrid for this shot, as I was busy uploading to the Philly Inquirer Pam shots for the paper the next day and missed the shots when the dance floor was empty)
There are booths for table service, which would be a great idea as the areas are roped off and spacious. (I like this article on the club and the casino.)

The club in full swing. The raised VIP lounge, which can only be accessed by a guarded secret door. The semi circle bar was a popular hang out as well as the multi colored floor. It was crowded, but still manageble. John Bolaris and Playboy Playmate/Megan Heaton/Miss Howard Stern TV November Megan Heaton.

NYC Party promoter Andretti, Pam Anderson and Richie Rich enjoy their spot in the VIP Lounge. Occasionally Pam would get up and dance a bit, but for the most part she mingled with a few peeps, but mostly dished the dirt with Richie. Pam was looking rather refreshed considering we both had a grueling day, she promoting her new perfume a Malibu at 2 different locations in the area, and me photographing her. I was tuckered out and left at 1AM, she I heard stayed a little longer, then went to the Q Lounge in Center City, then to the Zee Lounge on Spring Garden Street. She still caught her plane by 10AM and was back to LA. You go girl. (The Insider had a nice update of my weekend here) Another Girl with Stamina…
the real show was House DJ Maria Lainia, who you don’t want to miss when she’s in the house. I will update this with that information. i was mesmerized as was the crowd. She’s beautiful, talented and can get the party started. Sweet did I mention SWEET. I was a little scared after seeing her in this outfit, but I was wrong, so sweet and humble too. Check out Maria Laina as she hosts parties at 360 from Thursday through Saturday nights. Jerry Blavet is there on Wednesday from 5 – 7PM
So whether you like to gamble or not, the 360 Club and Lounge has to be on your agenda, you can’t lose.
