There are so many incredible venues at Ocean Casino Resort that we’re honestly having a hard time picking just six must-try hot spots. The gorgeous property has something for everyone, from the casino floor to restaurants like Wahlburgers and Distrito, to Ovation Hall, known far and wide as the best concert venue in all of South Jersey. Here, we’ve got a few other things to round out your list.

1 High Water Wine Bar. Located on the Mezzanine Level, the High Water Wine Bar looks over the casino floor and is steps away from Ovation Hall. Get to this gem of a bar on Friday for live music with Jon Pruitt; on Saturday for live music with Kristina Pruitt; on Sundays for Sangria Sundays (sangria specials and half-off tap wines from 4 to 7 p.m.); and on Wednesdays for Wine Down Wednesdays (half-off tap wines from 5 to 7 p.m.).

2 Amada. Hungry for the very best? Head to Amada, the culinary masterpiece of Chef Jose Garces, complete with ocean views, Mediterranean details, and a menu worth drooling over, with items such as lobster paella, filet mignon, and a wide variety of traditional tapas. Get there for Sunday brunches from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or for Sunset happy hour which includes cocktail, wine, beer and tapas specials from 5 to 7 p.m. every Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Want music with your meal? Live music takes place on Fridays and Saturdays. This week’s live performances are from Spanish guitarists, The Herreras.

3 William Hill Sportsbook. If the stakes of the casino floor aren’t enough for you, head to William Hill Sportsbook, where you can bet on all of your favorite sporting events. With cushioned seats and couches and a center bar for drinking and dining, as well as ample opportunities to place your bets, it’s a must-stop in the heart of the casino. Get there on Friday and Saturday nights for entertainment from Almost Angels and a DJ.

4 Topgolf Swing Suite. We weren’t kidding when we said there was something for everyone. Head to Topgolf Swing Suite for an immersive experience in virtual games, complete with a comfy lounge and cocktails. Really, what could be more fun? Not a golfer? Not to worry. Games include golf (of course) but also baseball, football, hockey, carnival classics and our personal favorite, Zombie Dodgeball.

5 Villain & Saint. Part rock ‘n’ roll music hall, part gastropub Villain & Saint is located in the heart of Ocean Casino. Maybe you head to Ocean for a concert at Ovation Hall, but you’ll stay for the nightlife here. Get there this Friday for Indelible Groove Duo and Stellar Mojo, and Five Times Famous and John McNutt on Saturday. Don’t just go to dance though — be sure to dine. With a menu that includes Korean fried chicken wings, grilled hanger steak and crispy fried Brussels sprouts, your stomach will thank you.

6 HQ2 Nightclub. The recipient of A.C. Weekly’s 2019 “Nightclub of the Year Award,” HQ2 Nightclub is where you want to be if you want a want top-notch DJ entertainment, performers and celebrity appearances. Head there this week for DMX at 10 p.m. Friday, and Lost Kings at 10 p.m. Saturday.
