Atlantic City Nightlife has a new home base

The much-anticipated, highly hyped nightclub at Revel named HQ debuted July 6 and is fully expected to further elevate Atlantic City’s status as a premier party destination. The spectacular multi-level space overlooking the ocean was designed to be one of the foremost clubs in the country, challenging the best that Las Vegas and Miami have to offer. It did not disappoint on its preview weekend, with wild nights that went well past 4 in the morning, but that was only a sampling of what’s to come by the grand opening at the end of the summer, and beyond.

Up, up and away with your worries

Some elements of construction will continue through the summer, but the plan is that guests enter HQ on the casino floor and into a candlelit bar with billiards and gambling tables. Steps ascend to the main room where there’s the DJ booth, dance floor, two bars and glass doors that lead to the outside area. The stairway continues upward to the mezzanine that overlooks the main floor and is filled with bottle-service booths, and they haven’t even revealed yet what’s up the stairs from there. How high you get is all up to you.

Broaden your view of the horizon

The people behind HQ obviously spared no expense when designing the interior, and it has all the classy decor and flashy technology you would expect at a world-class megaclub. But one aspect that is undeniably beyond comparison in Atlantic City is its outside rooftop area. The concrete terrace holds an assortment of modernist tables and chairs, native grasses that sway in the breeze, its own bar and, most of all, a panoramic perspective overlooking the Boardwalk, beach and ocean.

It’s all about EDM

With the popularity of electronic dance music surging, HQ has some of the world’s most popular DJs as resident performers. The roster so far includes A-Trak, Bambi, Calvin Harris, Cedric Gervais, Chromeo, Chuckie, Dada Life, Dirty South, EC Twins, Manufactured Superstars, Roger Sanchez, Rony Seikaly and many more. Expect each to play a few times a year, and count on hearing their club hits played on many nights when they’re not there.

Bottle service abounds

The main floor and mezzanine levels are full of bottles services. The mezzanine level is the more private of the two areas, and on opening weekend they were not even allowing general admission guests up there. The downstairs booths are not just in the heart of the action, but a part of the action, as girls jump on the backs of the booths and use them as their own performance platforms.
