Big Game Specialty Drinks at Borgata’s Long Bar

Big Game CocktailsIt’s a battle for the ages, or rather, a battle of the ages. Sunday’s Big Game features the old pro against the young upstart, the tale of two great defenses and a golden celebration of 50 years of championship football.

And it could mark the last hurrah for one of football’s all-time greats.

Dramatic is it not?

Fortunately, football drama comes with a solid dose of “hey, time to party,” and none of the stress and seriousness of, oh let’s say, a presidential election.

So we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and especially at Long Bar, have devised the perfect way to party—signature drinks representing your chosen team. It’s one thing to toast the great career of Peyton Manning, and another to acknowledge the rising star of Cam Newton, but it’s just downright cool to do it with the delectable cocktails designed by Long Bar’s mixologists.

Here’s our starting line-up.

Borgata Announces Premier Nightclub Debuting Spring 2016

Premier Nightclub

Premier NightclubWith the holidays over and a couple of months of winter ahead of us, it’s only natural to start dreaming of the return of spring.

In 2016, however, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa isn’t just getting ready for a normal spring, we’re preparing for the hottest spring Atlantic City has ever seen as we open our brand new $14 million, 18,000-square-foot Premier Nightclub.

You’ve been waiting to see what will be unveiled to continue Borgata’s reign as the hottest nightlife spot on the East Coast, and now we can tell you.

Designed by Josh Held (Marquee NYC; TAO Las Vegas; Voyeur Los Angeles), Premier Nightclub 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.

In a word, it will be fantastic. But then we are Borgata.

Josh GrobanThere are two big announcements for fans of singer Josh Groban this week.

First, Groban has been nominated for a Grammy for his album Stages for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

Second, tickets for Groban’s August 5 concert at Borgata’s Event Center go on sale Friday, December 11 at 10 am.

It’s all just another week in the life for Groban, of course, who got his first Grammy nomination 10 years ago and has been a music superstar ever since. Groban tweeted that he is “honored to be in such tremendous company,” along with fellow nominees like Tony Bennett, Bob Dylan and Barry Manilow.

Now that’s hanging with the big Boys.

Groban’s crossover album Stages, released in Aprilwas hailed as a triumphant interpretation of songs from some of the biggest Broadway musicals of all time. According to Broadwayworld.com, Groban’s Stages and tour are a collection of some of the greatest musical theater songs of all time, which Groban describes as “gorgeously arranged songs that have stood the test of time,” and which he was drawn to because of their combination of “incredible melody with an incredible story.”

He brings that tour to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa August 5 at Borgata’s Event Center. Tickets go on sale at 10 am Friday, December 11.  By then, Groban could be yet another Grammy winner to grace the Borgata Event Center stage.

Tickets are $153.50 / $123.50 / $98.50 / $78.50.

Human Nature: Christmas Motown at Borgata’s Music Box December 4 & 5

Human Nature Christmas MotownThis is the time of year for decorating, shopping, eating and general holiday goodness. And in that last category here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, that includes great holiday concerts and shows.

But what if we were to take the basic holiday concert and spice it up a bit? You know, say with some great classic music. Not classical music, but classic music—like Motown.

Now that’s a Holiday concert. Great Christmas music and great Motown classics.

Like say if Borgata’s favorite Motown group Human Nature returned to Borgata’s Music Box for two nights on December 4 & 5 to present Human Nature: Christmas Motown & More.

We’ve told you about the Australian group Human Nature before in one of their now regular summer stints here at Borgata in Atlantic City. Backed by Motown legend Smokey Robinson, Human Nature has become a Las Vegas staple—recently voted Las Vegas’ No. 1 vocal group—but regularly tours the East Coast.

For their Christmas show, they promise “Christmas, Motown and more!” is a lively holiday celebration including an 11 piece band and string section. Human Nature performs 14 Holiday classics from their new Christmas Album including “Please Come Home for Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Silent Night – O Holy Night,” “Winter Wonderland” and a selection of Motown’s greatest hits which Human Nature have become famous for.

This spectacular stage production is the ultimate family-fun Christmas show in all of Las Vegas. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Human Nature has a special show just for you.”

Andy Grammer at Borgata’s Music Box November 28

Andy GrammerThe world is full of songs that are hard to get out of your head. Once you hear them, they stay with you all day, in the back of your mind, in the front of your mind, taking over your mind.

And for those who come to Borgata’s Music Box on November 28 to see singer and “Dancing With the Stars” star Andy Grammer, we guarantee you’ll know what we’re talking about.

Shortly after the concert, we envision a few thousand Grammer fans walking around Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa softly singing “Nah, nah, honey I’m good. I could have another but I probably should—Not.”

And maybe not all that softly. That’s what happens when a singer hits on a relationship anthem that touches the public’s heart, and has a great musical hook.

The success of the single took even Grammer by surprise, but not because of the subject matter.

“I think anyone in a relationship has to deal with temptation, if they’re being honest with themselves,” the married Grammer recently told radio.com. “People don’t talk about it very much but it’s very honest. Guys and girls both have temptation.

Alan Cumming November 14 at Borgata’s Music Box

Alan CummingLooking through the upcoming concerts at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you might think that an Evening with Alan Cumming on November 14, at Borgata’s Music Box might make for a peaceful, pleasant evening with the Broadway star.

Especially if we tell you that Cumming himself bills the evening as “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.”

Doesn’t that sound like a peaceful event?

Only if you’re not familiar with Alan Cumming—at least on stage. Since he sprang on the scene playing the master of ceremonies in the 1998 Broadway re-adaption of “Cabaret,” Cumming has been one of the most energetic and unpredictable stage presences in American theater.

Sappy songs huh? Here’s a description of the show from the NY Times review.

“Nothing, however, prepared me for the emotional firestorm that Mr. Cumming detonated at Tuesday’s opening-night performance of his nightclub show ‘Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs.’ ‘Have a hankie ready,’ he advised early in the evening while flashing a subversive Mephistophelean grin whose message read: You know and I know that underneath our decorum, we’re all ravenous sexual beasts and hooray for that!”

That’s Alan Cumming, one of the hardest actors/singers to pin down into a neat stereotypical role. The Scottish born performer has been seen on American film screens (starting in 1997 with “Romy and Michelle’s Wedding“) and TV screens in a host of roles from “Spy Kids” to his current role on “The Good Wife.
