DAER Nightclub at The Hard Rock Atlantic City Grand Opening

By the end of this month, Atlantic City, New Jersey will have upped its ante of entertainment 100x with the grand opening of DAER Nightclub – introducing an entire new world of talent, music, and performance to the East Coast. Making its debut on June 28th, DAER is kicking things off alongside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City’s opening weekend festivities, broadcasting a roster of song and dance champions including Pitbull and Carrie Underwood live in concert at the Etess Arena.

Opening up with a bang, DAER scored Black Panther and Creed star Michael B. Jordan to reign in excited crowds as the night commences into a full evening and weekend of radiant musical experience. Entrance into this new world which explores depths of innovation, production, and globally renowned artists is only the beginning of surprises DAER is ready to explode with. Iconic DJ Mel Debarge has rhythms locked down on Thursday, June 28th as well as a special live performance this epic opening night. As if the atmosphere of DAER isn’t already booming with energy and thrill, legendary DJ/Producer Tiësto will take the stage on Friday, June 29 to keep the ball rolling with another ever-mesmerizing set. Closing out this monumental series of events is Fast and the Furious star and Grammy Award winner, Ludacris to play in tandem with the always rowdy DJ/Producer TJR – all in all, shaping up to be on hell of a weekend.

With an ideal location on the northern end of Atlantic City’s world-famous boardwalk, DAER is set to transform South Jersey’s nightlife scene not only this summer, but far beyond the season’s confines and into full on future takeover mode. Serving as Atlantic City’s fresh premiere nightlife destination, DAER features only the best of the best when it comes to every aspect in design, atmosphere, sound, technology, production, and experience. Within its monstrous arsenal includes an 8000-watt Funktion One sound system as well as a 30-foot state-of-the-art LED centerpiece with over 50 synchronized moving fixtures – only two of DAER’s signature features that are bound to blow the roof off of Atlantic City in the most amazing way possible.

The club’s top of the line audio-visuals are truly kicking it up a notch and just may be fan’s favorite aspect as it sends crowds into 360 degrees of blood-pumping dance floor experience and all-immersive euphoria. Specialized cannon blasters, confetti cannons, smoke, lasers, lights, the whole shabang, all follow in line to create an unparalleled spellbinding state of mind, body, and the beautiful reason for it all: music.

Best Beach and Pool Bars in Atlantic City – Summer 2018

Summer is not only the perfect time of year to head outdoors to a beach or pool bar, it’s the only time of year to really do so around here. So take advantage of the sunshine and relax at these hot spots.

Bungalow Beach Bar

A bit of South Beach in South Jersey. Picture crisp, white beach umbrellas and sleek lounge chairs with a trendy vibe. Located in A.C. at the beach at California Avenue, palm trees sway in the breeze as you chill in the warm rays with a cocktail or hookah. At night Bungalow turns into a chic nightclub with two levels for partying, plus a spot to dance to the hottest DJs.

Bikini Beach Bar

Bally’s Atlantic City has consistently had one of the top outdoor spaces around. It’s easy to see why at their Bikini Beach Bar, where specialty drinks flow all day served by an army of bikini-clad waitresses. They also feature a mix of munchies such as chicken fingers, burgers and Boardwalk fries. At night, you can expect some of the area’s top DJs and local bands, plus a variety of theme nights.

The Pool at Harrah’s

Don’t fear Mother Nature. It’s always a balmy 82 degrees at this sleek, glass-enclosed indoor pool with cocktail and food service. Once the sun goes down, this is REALLY the place to be. The party gets heated with big name DJs and celebrity hosts. There are also weekly events such as Wet ’n Wild Wednesdays, Thursday Night Swim, Aqua Fridays and Epic Saturdays.

Cabana Five Bar & Pool Deck

The pool at Trop’s Chelsea Tower in A.C. just received a facelift thanks to some new furniture and this 21 and over spot makes for a great way to start the party while the sun is still out. A DJ plus stunning servers, daybeds, cabanas and bottle service, as well as food and cocktails help to create the perfect vibe for you and your tribe.

Brigantine’s only beach bar also happens to be one of, if not THE best of any beach bar in the area.
