2 HQ2 The original HQ was arguably the most popular daylife scene in Atlantic City back when Revel was still around. It featured big name DJs from around the world, armies of hot bodied 20-somethings and just for the fun of it, a wildly overpriced $18 fruit salad. It has now reopened as HQ2, part of the brand new Ocean Resort and is in the process of reclaiming its throne as the best daylife scene in town with its giant pool and sexy crowd. No word on the return of the fruit salad. Ocean Resort is located at 500 Boardwalk in Atlantic City. Go to TheOceanAC.com for more info.
