Borgata Plans Premier Nightclub

Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa announced plans for a million nightlife experience, Premier Nightclub. Designed by Josh Held (Marquee NYC; TAO Las Vegas; Voyeur Los Angeles), the 18,000-square-foot venue will “ignite a rebirth of Atlantic City nightlife with its spring 2016 debut,” according to the company.

“As the first to introduce signature bottle service, high-caliber entertainment and world-renowned DJs to the region, Borgata was a game-changer when it debuted its unique brand of nightlife in 2003,” said Joe Lupo, senior vice president of operations for Borgata. “Nearly 13 years later, we felt now was the ideal time to once again redefine nightlife entertainment with a venue designed to rival the top clubs in Las Vegas, Miami and New York.

“With its debut, Premier Nightclub will provide partygoers with an experience that is unmatched in Atlantic City, further reinforcing Borgata’s position as the market-leading resort destination.”

Combining previous entertainment space with newly excavated volume, Premier will create a theatrical experience for partygoers. As guests enter the nightclub, they will be welcomed into an ornate, yet modern scene with tiered booths focused on the DJ booth, stage and digital proscenium.

The main room will be flanked by two 35-foot-long bars with carved-stone faces and pierced-metal and mirrored back bars. An internal monumental staircase with hand-welded bronze filigree will take guests upstairs to the horseshoe-shaped mezzanine. A custom 6-foot-diameter disco ball will shine as the grand showpiece in the heart of Premier, surrounded by a first-of-it-kind, 25-foot-diameter chandelier made from programmable light.
