Now with the first month of the new year behind us, between the freezing weather and the unsettling recent world events, we can all use some uplifting news. Fortunately, I have something really exciting to tell you.
As you may know, The Pool at Harrah’s closed last month for renovations. But you won’t have to wait until summer to get back into the swim of things or, if you prefer, party the night away at one of Atlantic City’s top spots for revelers. Mark your calendar for the weekend of March 3-4 and the grand reopening of the Pool After Dark!
Not that the Pool after Dark wasn’t already one of the best places to party in Atlantic City, but to coincide with the venue’s 10th anniversary, Harrah’s decided that an upgrade was in order. Accordingly, the next time you visit, you will see a new stage for live acts and an elevated DJ booth, including an LED video wall. You will also get to experience a new, improved sound system and upgraded cabanas and daybeds.
Harrah’s will be bringing in a musical headliner for the reopening festivities.
What are your favorite party spots in Atlantic City? I would also like to pose another question. We see Atlantic City trying to cater more and more to the millennial crowd, and the Pool After Dark is a prime example. Do you feel that there needs to be more of a balance in continuing to appeal to other generations, too?February 14, 2017 at 9:03 am #251
I feel like the pool was responsible for just about anyone under 30 setting foot in Harrah’s — well that and it tends to give away more free rooms than the Borgata.
Still, Harrah’s is in an enviable spot, as it’s located on the marina with Borgata and up-and-comer Golden Nugget. I think if it continues down the path of becoming a more millennial friendly destination, we’ll see casino revenue start to rise.
However, Borgata is still the place for partying, and the casino has stayed aggressive on that front with Premier Nightclub, and its assortment of bars. Bar One at Resorts deserves a nod, as does Boogie Nights at Tropicana — although the latter caters more to an older crowd.
I think the older crowd is going to go to the casino regardless of whether there is a solid nightlife or not. However, if the outlying areas of Atlantic City were you know, safer, than the city might see more traffic.
I suppose strengthening the boardwalk offerings would help too, but AC is always going to be hindered by the fact that it’s a boardwalk city in a seasonal climate zone.
