Great Party Spots to Check Out in Atlantic City, NJ
As the weather begins to turn colder, and the beach is no longer our main source of extracurricular activities, you may want to check out the party scene close to home. You might be surprised to find the incredibly diverse options for every age and lifestyle.
For those who want to relive the dance club days of the ‘70s and ‘80s, there's a cool club in the Tropicana called Boogie Nights. Every Friday and Saturday night, the club features music from the ‘70s and ‘80s, along with celebrity impersonators who intermingle with guests, a light-up dance floor (think Saturday Night Fever), and a great crowd. Boogie Nights is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
If you're looking for a club that appeals to a bit of a younger crowd, you might want to check out HQ2 Nightclub in the Ocean Casino. The music is loud and the party, hardcore. Each week, HQ2 plays host to world-renowned DJs who keep the pulsating sounds of the day playing non-stop. HQ2 is open Thursday through Sunday.
The parties at the clubs are fun, but sometimes we want to get a group of friends for some adult beverages and good conversation. Resorts hosts Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, home of the Late-Night Happy Hour 8p til close, 7 days a week. The drink specials include $5 domestic drafts as well as $5 house wine. They offer food specials as well.
These days, we can all use a good laugh. The Music Box is located in the Borgata Resort and Casino. It plays host to some of the biggest names in comedy. Jerry Seinfeld, Lewis Black, and Whitney Cummings are just some of the names who have taken the stage at the Music Box. In addition to comedy, they also host great bands there.
Finally, there are the concerts. If you've never been to a concert in AC, you might be surprised to see how intimate some of these shows are. Every seat in the house is a good one. Here's a sampling of some upcoming shows:
