When the big game goes off February 1 in Glendale Arizona, there’ll be a lot of different ways to make it known which side you’re rooting for … wearing your team’s jersey, waving flags and banners, just being really loud about it.
But here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—especially at Borgata’s Long Bar—you can add one more dimension. You can drink the drink of your would-be champions.
Whether you’re a die-hard super-fan or just enjoy trying new and fun libations, Borgata has the perfect offerings to quench any fan’s thirst this Super Bowl weekend. In anticipation of the New England Patriots taking on the Seattle Seahawks, Borgata will offer specialty cocktails at Long Bar leading up to the big game. And we promise that all of our specialty drinks will be properly inflated.
Check out our list of specialty drinks:
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
Throw on your oldest hooded sweatshirt and tip your glass to the only head coach in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in four years. Much in the same way a Hall of Fame coach brings his players together, this Sangria blends a variety of delicious ingredients to create a winning concoction sure to “inflate” your ego.
Winter isn’t letting up so neither is Borgata Nightlife’s Winter Music Series at MIXX which continues February 6 with DVBBS and then February 13 with W&W.
It’s kind of the initial phase of the Winter Music Series to start off the month. Get it? Initials – DVBBS and W&W?
The month starts off with DVBBS — the Canadian Dance Music duo of brothers Chris Andre and Alex Andre van den Hoef, best known for their joint international hit with Borgeous titled “Tsunami.” The vocal remix of “Tsunami (Jump)”, featuring Tinie Tempah, reached number 1 on the UK and Scotland charts. Of course we have them in Atlantic City, after the brothers finish up a Brazilian swing on their latest tour.
While “Tsunami” may be what they are best known for, a look at their follow-ups, such as “Pyramids” featuring Sanjin shows a diversity you might not expect from a Canadian duo.
“Pyramids” channels the same percussive intensity of “Tsunami” but mixes it with Jamaican influences. “It feels so good to bring back our reggae roots,” the duo tells Billboard. “We’ve been wanting to crossover with a reggae vibe for quite some time. It all started at a hotel in Sweden with our homie Sanjin. The next day we hit a studio in Amsterdam and the track was coming to life.”
So, you know, reggae roots from a couple of guys from Ontario.
Advance tickets are $30 and available here.
Want to know one of the biggest misconceptions about Atlantic City and winter?
Answer: that it’s the slow season.
Not at Borgata Nightlife.
Winter means MIXX at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is supplying extra heat with its Winter Music Series. Two Fridays each month the club opens up to special DJ appearances and shows.
First up for January is DJ Chuckie, extending his Dirty Dutch sound to MIXX Friday, January 9 joined by Borgata House DJ Paul Castro.
Next up, January 16 is music by Nervo with spinning by Borgata DJ Carlos Melange.
Chuckie, born in Suriname, is appearing hot off the release of the EP Traphall with ChildsPlay. As Chuckie puts it on his website, the “four-track EP and collaboration with ChildsPlay features a bombastic hybrid of trap and classic dancehall tunes unlike any before it. Traphall is a testament to Chuckie’s vision for Dirty Dutch Music. This incomparable leadership is taking the label into all spectrums of dance music, leaving no stone unturned.”
But what else would you expect from a guy whose nickname is the King of Dirty Dutch. For those who don’t know what Dirty Dutch is, it is a genre characterized by high pitched lead synths over Latin-inspired rhythms and samples.
Advance tickets for Chuckie are $30 and available here.
Ah, Mondays. The first day of the work week and the school week—the day of the week most removed from the weekend.
Aren’t they great?
There’s a reason Monday’s are immortalized in song—“Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down,” (The Carpenters) “I Don’t Like Mondays,” (Boomtown Rats), “Blue Monday” (Fats Domino).
But you can fight that desire to hate the first day of the week at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s mur.mur Mondays.
Yes, clubbing on a Monday. Think of it as a permanent three-day weekend at Borgata.
Throw in Izakaya Mondays at Borgata’s modern Japanese pub with a menu from sushi to sake from Borgata chef Michael Schulson.
Sevens run wild on the Izakaya Mondays special menu with $7 sushi, sake and robatayaki. Plus, receive complimentary admission to mur.mur Mondays until 11pm with your Izakaya receipt of $20 or more.
And, of course, we always have one of our in-house DJs on mur.mur Mondays including Joe Maz on January 5 and Ross One spinning on January 12. Check out the event schedule.
So Mondays don’t have to be that bad. Not if you make Borgata Nightlife a part of the start to your week.
Now Tuesdays …
Don’t look now, but 2015 is gaining on us and New Year’s Eve is less than three weeks away.
For a lot of people, that means panic time. Where should we go? Where’s the best party? Where will we get the kind of New Year’s Eve action that we’ll truly remember?
The answers? Borgata, Borgata and … Borgata.
This New Year’s Eve, which just happens to be a nice mid-week Wednesday night, Borgata Nightlife has lined up several days of parties at our signature bars and nightclubs—enough to turn a mid-week break into a full-on week-long party.
It starts Sunday, December 28, with Dutch DJ and record producer Tiesto playing a full-on show in the Borgata Event Center, with an opening set from Moti. Here’s a full rundown on the show. Tickets are $79.50 to $89.50 and available here.
On Monday, December 29, check out the Industry NYE party with Lil Jon at mur.mur, part of mur.mur Mondays as the rapper/record producer brings the crunk to the best industry party in A.C. Tickets are $30.
On the big night, New Year’s Eve, Borgata Nightlife presents DJ Fashen at mur.mur and D-Nice at MIXX.
Sometimes a DJ gets big—so big that a simple club can’t hold him. And that’s pretty much why Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will present Tiesto in the Borgata Event Center on December 28.
The Dutch spinner and record producer needs the biggest room he can find. After all, the guy once opened an Olympics.
You may know him as DJ Tiesto or by his given name of Tijis Michiel Verwest or any of a bunch of other aliases. Now, he’s simply Tiesto, with a string of hits and appearances that have dominated the electronic dance music scene for more than 15 years.
In fact, Tiesto is more than a DJ and record producer. He’s his own brand. Just check out his resume—a Grammy nomination, numerous MTV awards, and performing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. Tiesto also has a globally syndicated Club Life Radio Show and his Club Life Podcast (#1 music podcast on iTunes globally) and has worked with superstars such as Kanye West, Coldplay, Gotye, Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Goldfrapp and many more.
Tiesto comes to Borgata with a new album A Town Called Paradise, out and with a tour—currently in Australia—that stops only three times in the U.S. Borgata is Tiesto’s only East Coast stop.
And for Tiesto, it’s all about the live performance.
Alan Macklovitch, better known as the master DJ A-Trak, has pretty much had things his own way since winning the DMC World DJ Championship in 1997 at the age of 15. That’s what you call making a career entrance.
Since then, the question isn’t what has the 32-year-old DJ done, it’s what hasn’t he done?
Win all three major DJ competition titles (DMC, ITF and Vestax)? Did that.
Developed his own notation system for scratching? Did that
Started his own record label (Fool’s Gold Records)? Did that too.
Become the personal tour DJ for an act like Kanye West? Uh-huh.
Become a street-wear icon by collaborating with Nike, New Era, Kidrobot, Zoo York and pretty much every other designer getting any notice? Yep.
Produced a ton of hit singles and remixes? That too.
You may be noticing a trend here. Still, A-Trak hasn’t done everything—close, but not yet, However, he will be spinning at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at MIXX along with Carlos Melange on November 29. The appearance comes just days after the scheduled release of his newest single, Push on November 25.
Borgata Nightlife’s mur.mur Mondays prove that the party never has to stop even if the weekend does.
Meanwhile DJ MakJ (aka. Mackenzie Johnson) has taken his art of partying around the world. His creativity and diversity have gained him the praise of an army of performers for his originals, edits, bootlegs and remixes.
So imagine when the two ever come together. You know, DJ MakJ playing at mur.mur Mondays.
It’s happening November 10.
All of Borgata’s DJs know how to keep a party going, but there’s no question that MakJ brings a fascinating background with him. At 15 he was a race car driver in China. At 17, he was in the U.S. spinning.
Now he’s a successful producer and radio host. And per his website, 2014 Has already seen MAKJ release “Let’s Get F*cked Up,” a huge collab on Ultra with megastar MC Lil Jon, as well as “DERP,” a collaboration with his good friends Bassjackers.
