In Borgata Casino, there is a club. Its called " The Mixx ". It's a small club, but it's awsome ! The drinks are good, The music is good, and the dancing never stops. Some nights are slower than others, I actually went on a slow night, but I had just as much fun ! I had a "Sex On the Beach" and the bartender whipped it up for my in an instant. However , the drinks were mighty expensive. 10 bucks for a small tiny little glass. A deffinate must see, and party ! 21 to enter .
Dress Code: no jeans, no sneakers, no boots, dress to impress
OK, I love this place.
In winter or summer, you're likely to find many people of all ages eating and drinking a pint or two (or ten). It has a good selection of beers on tap, though they do not have Harp and make their half and halfs with Guiness and Stella.
It is open 24 hours and when I was younger, there was a time or two when a late night stretched later and I was blinded by the sun upon my departure.
The best secret is the food. It is good and cheap. They have the best chicken fingers and french fries that I've ever had.
I have heard that business has slowed since the smoking ban, but it is a great place and always likely to find new friends there.
The bartenders aren't the friendliest, but they get their job done. They have to put up with a lot of drunks, many people go there to get wasted, so I'm willing to say I wouldn't have their patience either.
Also, there is a leprechaun wandering around some weekend nights (really). I don't know if he is an employee or not, but bring your camera, because after a couple, you'll want a picture.
Dress Code: Casual
Club Mixx is a restaurant that turns into a nightclub after 10. We held my sister's bachelorette party here and were able to skip the line/cover charge by eating dinner late and staying until the club opened.
I was glad to skip the enormous line and unbelievable cover charge ($25). The only exceptional thing about this place was the disproportionate number of bachelorette/bachelor parties there. On the Saturday night that were were there, I would say that 50% of the people in the club were part of a party.
Aside from the scantily clad Vegas style dancers on the bar and the people who paid way too much money to get bottle service staring at you from the tables above, this is just like any other club in NJ. If we had not gotten in for free, there's no way we would have paid so much to get in.
Dress Code: Apparently the less the better.
All of the casinos have bars and lounges but not all bars are created equally. Of course different people look for different features in a lounge. Personally, I like a place that is quiet enough to hold a conversation but open enough that you can do some people watching. The Temple Bar on the second floor of Caesar’s fulfills these requirements admirably. Other favorites include Tango's near The Quarter in the Tropicana and Tuxedos Bar in Resorts.
There are free entertainers along the Boardwalk, pretty much any time of the day or night. These are street performers so the quality varies wildly. Expect to hear / see: Dancing, Drums, Guitar, Singing, Statues.
The new Quarter at Tropicana is replete with a slew of fine dining establishments that after dinner serve up dancing and music. Try Cuba Libre for salsa, merengue and bachata and performances by a few dance pro's as well. The Sound of Philadelphia hearkens back to the classic R&B and motown of Detroit and Philly with live bands regularly and a small but adequate dancefloor. Lastly, end the night with Karaoke at Planet Rose where you can choose from Whitney to Garth and everything in between.
Dress Code: Dress Code is strict...No sneakers and, men, jeans, jerseys and hats are not favored. Cover charge on weekends.
$20 cover and look good. Prepare to pay $5.50 for water. Music and lights are great, but the saxophone guy needs to go. One of the best clubs in AC. (Supposed to be NYC'ish or Las Vegas, but i dont think it came close)
Dress Code: TRENDY!!!!!
Casinos and shows! Find out who's in town and make reservations to catch a show or event. Enjoy the casinos! This is a great place to gamble for FUN! (Much more satisfying than the weekly lotto or scratch-offs!!!)
Every Hotel/Casino along the Boardwalk has something going on at any given time.
If your not sure where to go or what to do, walk along the Boardwalk and go into a few different places and see what happens.
Life Can Be Exciting

It has to be Casbah at Taj Majahl. An all night dance club that dosen't even get pumpin til about 2am.
Dress Code: Dress to impress. Fellas, no sneaks or sweats. Also dress like it's summertime cause it gets hot as heck in there.
The Trump Taj Mahal is one of the best casinos in Atlantic City. In addition to gambling, there are restaurants, stores, convention halls, and entertainment. I enjoyed spending time here.
