There isn’t one right way to do a St. Patrick’s Day ‘LepreCon’ crawl, nor is there just one place to do it. We’ve rounded up three ways to get your sham-rock on. Each one is a bar crawl unto itself, but they can be combined into one massive Atlantic County trek for the truly ambitious. Eithe… Read more

1. Pre-game the parade. The Hard Rock Cafe in Atlantic City will help you get “Sham-ROCKed” before the big parade. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 11, enjoy an a la carte brunch menu with happy hour pricing at the bar and a live acoustic performance by Bill Caterini. The Hard Rock is c… Read more

1. It’s the best place to find live, original music. It’s no wonder that the Boneyard won the A.C. Weekly Nightlife Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Place to Listen to Original Music,” as it is the only place in Atlantic City that regularly features local bands playing their own tunes. Friday… Read more

1. It’s not just a nightclub. It’s a destination. Dusk Nightclub is actually just one of the three venues that makes up the Dusk Complex at Caesars. In addition to Dusk Nightclub, Dusk Complex houses Retro’s, a dance club with a distinctive ’80s vibe; as well as The Backyard Bar, and indoor/… Read more

If you have plans to watch Super Bowl LI, there’s no shortage of places to go, as pretty much every bar in the area will have the game on. But some ways do game day better than others. Here, fi… Read more

1. You have probably never heard of it. And while there are a bunch of reasons that this is true — it’s new, it was part of a major renovation, and it’s part of the Atlantic City Country Club, which used to be privately owned but is now open to the public. We don’t expect it to be true for l… Read more

When setting out to form a tribute band, most folks plan it carefully, considering a variety of potential groups to pay tribute to, combing the classified ads and pestering old contacts to find the perfect musicians and finally fine tuning everything to be stage ready. Tuesday’s Gone, who wi… Read more

When celebrating the people who make Atlantic City such a stylish place to party, one must follow suit with a stylish party of one’s own. With this in mind, we joined forces with the team at Tropicana Atlantic City to throw a Nightlife Awards so grand that it would be worthy of the A.C. roya… Read more

The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort has been one of the top venues in the Atlantic City nightlife scene for many years, having sported regular appearances from big name celebrities as well as the hottest DJs around.

The year 2016 may not have been the most popular year in recent memory, but as bad as it was, we all still went out and had some seriously fun times at bars, clubs, concerts and shows. The truth of the matter is, regardless of what is going on in the world, it’s still nearly impossible to no… Read more

1. It’s the last gay bar in town. It’s crazy that in a tourist town like Atlantic City, there’s only one gay bar. With that said, The Rainbow Room is it — the last gay bar standing. Fortunately, it’s a great divey kind of neighborhood place where the staff is friendly, the drinks flow and ev… Read more

Fans of ‘80s music had some hard blows in 2016. The passings of Prince and David Bowie were about all we could take. But alas, the gods were not friendly and also took pop icon George Michael on Christmas Day. Read more

Atlantic City has had its ups and down over the years, but there is one thing about this town that will never change — when it comes to nightlife, it’s “top of the heap” (or maybe “A Number 1” depending on which Frank Sinatra line you prefer to reference). Read more

1. It’s a “hidden” gem. If not for a keen eye and a noticeable tingling of your hipster spidey-sense, you might not even know The Iron Room existed. After all, the front door of this unassuming building opens into the rather unassuming Atlantic City Bottle Company, a liquor store for wine af… Read more

Have ya heard? Atlantic City has opened its first distillery since Prohibition days. Little Water, a craft whiskey and rum distillery, opened earlier this month in the town’s Northeast Inlet. Launched just last week at various outlets such as The Iron Room, Passion Vines and Joe Canal’s to n… Read more

1. It’s chock-full of history. The whole look of Ram’s Head Inn seems right out of another time and that’s because it is. The bar/restaurant has gone through multiple changes over the years — it was a roadhouse in the ’30s and ’40s, and a family-style Dutch-themed restaurant until the mid-’7… Read more

1. It’s right out of an old painting. Everything about Oyster Creek Inn screams charm. Perhaps the truest sea shack you will find anywhere on the Jersey shore, it’s located deep in the foreboding pine barrens of Leeds Point, right where the trees meet the marsh. It sits amid a quaint and tat… Read more

Thanksgiving Eve — it’s pretty epic. Not only is everybody back in town and ready to hang out, but the night is followed up by Thanksgiving itself, an enormous meal full of comfort foods that happen to double as hangover remedies. The biggest unofficial party night of the year is finally her… Read more

1. It’s all about the atmosphere. Most bars and restaurants make some effort to try and produce a pleasant atmosphere in which to relax and wind down, but once you pass through the incredible carved wood doors that lead into Sofia, you begin to realize that in comparison, most fall short.
