“The Tropicana is located on the Atlantic City boardwalk. It features the "Quarter" promenade where you can find some great restaurants and shopping. If you're looking for some fun at night, check out Boogie Nights - a 70's style nightclub, complete with a disco ball and light-up dance floor, just like in Saturday Night Fever! ”

Casino
“Borgata is located on the marina side of Atlantic City. It's a beautifully designed, high end casino with, of course, high end restaurants and shops. Their nightlife scene is Premier Nightclub or Gypsy Bar, which typically has live music on the weekends. If you don't mind spending a bit of cash, Borgata is the place to go! ”

“I almost hate to recommend this as I go regularly and it is already hard to get a seat. Get there when they open the doors at 4p for happy hour at the bar. They have a live piano player and a romantic atmosphere. Lobster mac and cheese is 50% off. Select oysters for only $1. No deals on drinks so you will still spend a few dollars but well worth it!”
