Everyone knows what goes down after sunset
Dusk, the premiere megaclub in Caesars, is without a doubt among the most popular places to party in Atlantic City. Since it opened in 2009, it has consistently ranked among Nightclub and Bar’s Top 100 venues in the country — one of only three A.C. clubs to earn that distinction. The reason for that is evident on any night it’s open, with the usual scene of a capacity crowd overflowing from the dance floor and apparently intent on partying until the sun rises.
Designed with everyone in mind
Dusk is laid out in three concentric ovals, each slightly lower and descending to the dance floor in the center, making that the focal point but also making it easy to see from one end of the club to the other. That often makes it feel like everyone is partying together, rather than in hundreds of separate groups, because you can see the excitement all around you. Still, if you want to escape the energy for a second to grab a drink or hit the bathroom, walkways circle the edge of the room and make it easy to get to where you want to go.
Nobody goes out to drink alone
Unlike a lot of clubs, Dusk doesn’t divide its bottle-service areas from the rest of the venue. Viewing those types of roped VIP sections as boring and snobbish, they arranged the tables and booths around the two lower tiers of the room. By being immersed in the party, the bottle service patrons still get all the pampering they paid for, but they can mingle a lot easier.
The sound will literally move you
The late DJ AM was a part owner of the club when it opened, and he personally picked out its monster sound system that sends the music pulsing through your body and makes it feel like your bones are shaking. That sounds painful, but it’s definitely a good thing with all the bona fide party rockers the club brings in, from its residents such as DJ Royale to celebrity spinners such as DJ Jazzy Jeff and to performers such as Chris Willis and LMFAO.
After-party’s right upstairs
In 2011, the people behind Dusk found a way to redevelop their space and open an all-new venue called 21 Bar right by the club’s entrance. With the new arrangement, guests enter the club as they normally would, but they exit up the stairs and through the new lounge area, which has its own extensive drink menu. It works out perfectly if you want to have an actual conversation with someone you met on the dance floor, or you just don’t want a great night to end.
