There are a lot of elements of Spring that people love to embrace. We clean our homes (OK, maybe people don’t love that part), break out the shorts and start spending a lot more time outside.
And one of the best aspects of spring can be seen at the dinner table. After a long season of eating produce shipped in from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, we can now stock our tables with locally grown fresh Spring fruits, berries and vegetables.
For an Executive Chef like Aram Mardigian, that also means breaking out the Spring recipes. Mardigian is a regular in our Savor Borgata Culinary Series “Lunch and Learn” presentations, so that means that you have the opportunity to break out his recipes as well this Spring.
Mardigian presents a special spring-themed Lunch and Learn event Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28 at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. He’ll be showing attendees how to prepare a three-course lunch with wine featuring several of his classic Spring dishes.
We’re calling it our “Spring into Summer Luncheon with Aram Mardigan”
If you’re looking for a reason to come visit our LGBT-friendly resort, look no further: Borgata offers something for just about everyone, including ways to indulge, relax, and get your party on. We rounded up ten of our favorite reasons why our guests and friends enjoying coming out to Borgata.
When it comes to classic rock, with all due respect to modern music artists, some things are just too cool to ever be equaled.
Yeah, yeah, the kids are all into their Katy Perry, their Niki Minaj, their Kanye, their Drake.
You know what’s cool? Alice Cooper is cool singing Doors’ songs with Johnny Depp and Joe Perry on guitar. Yes, actor Johnny Depp. Yes, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
You know what’s cooler? That such a group exists and has the name Hollywood Vampires.
You know what’s cooler still? That the group grew out of a drinking club established by Cooper in Los Angeles on the Sunset Strip in 1969 for the rockers passing through the L.A. music scene. The Hollywood Vampires club was formed in an upstairs bar at the Rainbow Bar & Grill.
Cooper and Depp decided that they wanted to see the Hollywood Vampires rise from the dead (get it) and launched a band dedicated to resurrecting the music of so many singers and groups of the era who have, well, passed on to the great rock band graveyard.
And coolest of all? They’re playing Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on July 4th weekend with an appearance Sunday, July 3.
Intrigued? Hey, the coolness goes on.
Before we get into the April Spa Specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, here’s some helpful definitions of some of the things we’re empathizing this month at Borgata Spas.

Kumquat – A fruit, kind of like an orange.

We don’t mean to get technical, we just kind of love the wide range of spa options we get to bring to you. You’ll love it too – promise.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s April Spa Specials:
With the closing party at mur.mur being such a huge success last week, it ushers the way for the newest mega-club in Atlantic City — Premier. Premier nightclub is a brand new 18,000 square foot state of the art, $14 million venue that will overtake all of your senses. 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 lights. Behind the DJ booth stands one of the largest LED screens of any nightclub anywhere in the country. It is an unbelievable lighting and visual production that creates a stunning theatrical experience that will keep partygoers coming back for more.
Designed by Josh Held who also masterminded multiple properties around the world including some in NYC, Las Vegas, and Dubai, Premier is just his most recent project. The nightclub sits VIP tables surrounding the dance floor with 2 bars on each side of the main room. The horseshoe shaped Grand Balcony overlooks the main room with another large bar for patrons to enjoy.
Premier opens Friday (4/8) with Grammy nominated DJ Morgan Page. Following up Saturday night (4/9) with internationally recognized EDM DJ, Michael Woods. Sunday night (4/10) mixes it up a little with open format sensation Jesse Marco. Finally, Monday night (4/11) brings one of the music industry’s best talents and Dirty Dutch creator Chuckie to close down the final night of the opening weekend.

There was a time in entertainment when variety was king.
A variety show wasn’t exactly a concert, or a comedy show, or an acrobatic show or any one thing in particular kind of show. It was all of the above and more.
From Vaudeville to the great variety shows of early American television such as the “Ed Sullivan Show,” variety shows ruled from the late 1800s to the mid-20th century.
The secret to these shows was that the audience never knew what was coming next. A singer could be followed by a plate spinner. The plate spinner might be followed by an animal act and then a comic. Next up was a troupe of acrobats followed by a magician.
In the end, the name spoke for itself – Variety.
And we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are bringing them back with The Great American Variety Show playing Thursdays at Borgata’s Music Box now through May 5.
For our variety show, we’ve got an “America’s Got Talent” finalist in Clint Carvalho and his parrot (Yes, it’s a parrot act), acrobats, local illusionist Michael Grasso (another “America’s Got Talent” veteran), knife throwers, comedy and a roller skate thrill act (That’s right, roller skates).
Check out this lineup:
Diana Ross had one goal during her sold-out Friday evening concert at Borgata‘s Event Center: to slay.
And slay she did. The 72-year-old performer donned more gowns than one would find during an episode of Say Yes to the Dress during her 75 minute set and demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that she’s still got it in spades.
All good things must come to an end as mur.mur’s “The Last Beat” approaches this weekend. Come bid farewell to one of Atlantic City’s most successful nightlife venues and welcome Borgata’s newest mega-nightclub, Premier.
mur.mur Nightclub has been a staple in Atlantic City with signature bottle service and its renowned mur.mur Mondays. The venue features open format and EDM DJs from around the world that have entranced partygoers for close to a decade.
Here is the final line-up this weekend at mur.mur nightclub.
Friday Night – Stoon
“There is a time and a place for every song ever made.” Abdel Stoon’s appreciation for multiple genres and talent behind a DJ booth have made him one of the fastest rising DJs in New York City. He has successfully opened for the likes of Dada Life, Chuckie, Nervo, Blasterjaxx and is well on his way to becoming a world renowned musical act himself.
Tickets: Admission available at the door.
Guest List: Complimentary Admission Before Midnight – Register Online.
VIP Table Service: For inquiries call 609.317.7249 or fill out the request form.
The Kentucky Derby is the Super Bowl of American horse racing and this year’s running marks the 142nd year of the Run for the Roses.
And while you can experience all the excitement and action of the “fastest two minutes in sports” at Borgata’s Racebook, keep one thing in mind.
The Kentucky Derby has endured because it is much more than a simple horse race.
The derby exemplifies a sense of style and southern charm that has been preserved down for decades. As much as it’s about 3-year-old thoroughbreds, it’s also about mint juleps and traditional Kentucky cuisine. When they play “My Old Kentucky Home” at Churchill Downs, there’s 142 years of tradition on display.
We know a little about tradition here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and we know a lot about fine dining – especially at Old Homestead Steakhouse.
And Friday, May 6 – which is also the day the Kentucky Oaks is run – Old Homestead will become my Old Kentucky Homestead by teaming up with Kentucky bourbon distillers Woodford Reserve to present the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series.
Ms. Diana Ross needs no introduction: The legendary diva has belted iconic tunes for decades, and has starred in countless movies and television shows. She’s been honored numerous times, including a 2012 Lifetime Achievement Grammy as well as a 2007 Kennedy Center Honors. Now an intimate crowd of a few thousand guests have the lucky chance to see Ms. Ross live and in person at Borgata’s Event Center during a one night only, SOLD OUT show on Friday, April 1. To prepare for all of her musical glory, we rounded up five of our all-time favorite Diana Ross videos for your viewing pleasure.
