The Water Club
How do you know that summer is in full-swing at Borgata? Our outdoor pools are open for the season! The Borgata Outdoor Pool, a new addition to the property in 2016, has re-opened for 2017 and features the ever popular Borgata Beer Garden. Also, The Water Club‘s two outdoor pools are open for business, and promise a relaxing retreat at our signature hotel. Of course, all of our indoor pool options are still ready for your swimming pleasure. Need a reminder of all of the pools at Borgata? We’ve rounded all of them up below. From serene adult-only watering holes to fun-filled family spots, we have a pool for just about everyone.
With the opening of Borgata‘s newest restaurant, Angeline by Michael Symon, avid foodies have certainly been speeding the buzz on their social media accounts. But did you know that our star chefs have their own Instagram accounts that give food fans a behind-the-scenes look at their cooking adventures? We’ve rounded up all of the must-follow accounts of our celebrity chefs so you can take a little Borgata culinary adventure whenever and wherever you are!
Imagine a chic taste of summer all year round without having to venture south of the boarder. The Water Club, Borgata’s signature 43-story hotel and resort, has been a favorite for those who want a tranquil getaway while still enjoying the excitement of Atlantic City’s premier entertainment destination just footsteps away.
There are few things in the American culinary palate as time honored and cherished as ground beef sandwiches served in endless varieties.
In other words, Americans really love hamburgers!
We make them in our kitchens and at cookouts and we go out to eat them or just grab a sack on the way home from work. And we eat hamburgers a lot. It’s estimated that the average American eats three hamburgers a week and as a country, we consume 50 billion hamburgers a year. That’s billion, with a “B.”
And yes, we do mean delicacies, such as sushi, sashimi and the many variations of steak tartare. The use of raw protein ensures a freshness and taste that can easily be lost on the grill.
The traditional steak tartare is a French specialty that was originally served with tartare sauce in the 19th century, but has undergone a lot of regional changes – mostly involving the use of herbs and spices. Sushi and sashimi are Japanese delicacies that feature raw fish that exploded on the American scene in the 1980’s.
Much like eating your first raw oyster, fans of tartare and sushi took a bit of a plunge their first time (though these preparations are perfectly safe), but found gastronomic delights that can make you regret every time you’ve ever ordered something well done…
Here’s a fun fact. Every time you spend a relaxing hour or two at Borgata’s spa’s getting one of our signature massages, you’re engaging in something that people have been doing for more than 4,300 years.
Really, the first indication of massages was found in the Tomb of Akmanthor (also known as “The Tomb of the Physician”) in Saqqara, Egypt which has a depiction of two men getting foot massages. The tomb dates to 2,330 BC.
By 700 BC massage was a pretty standard practice in Asian medicine, so the point is it’s been around a long time. Couple that with the ancient Greeks love of baths, and you get the history of spas…
There are a lot of skills that go into bartending and creating the perfect cocktail. There’s mixing, stirring, squeezing (as in lemons etc.) shaking, blending and a host of other ways of bringing together all of the flavors in a cocktail.
It’s called the London Refresher, and it calls for muddling. That’s muddling, not muggling, which comes from that other English import Harry Potter.
No, muddling, to be precise, is to mix together, especially confusedly. In this recipe, you get to muddle away on key ingredients before adding the liquor – gin, of course, it is the London Refresher. In this case, you’ll need a muddling stick (really, it’s a bartender tool, much like a pestle). Then you just muddle up the ingredients and add the gin.
Sure, it’s nice to pop by and experience Premier Nightclub or our new Borgata Beer Garden, maybe take in a great show and have a great dinner. But instead of heading for the parking garage, the best way to follow up a night at Borgata is an overnight stay in a classic room followed by a relaxing day at Borgata’s outdoor pool.
Why the pitch? Because we want you here and we’re giving away one overnight stay to lucky winners every week from July 15 to August 24 in our “My Borgata Summer Sweepstakes.”
Search the words “Pineapple Express,” and you’ll find a lot of information about a 2008 movie starring James Franco and Seth Rogan which is much beloved by fans of Judd Apatow movies and served as an inspiration for some – shall we say farmers – who have been trying to create the fictitious – shall we say hybrid – in the film ever since.
Or, you’ll find info on a train tour through Dole’s Hawaiian pineapple plantation.
But search Pineapple Express Borgata or Pineapple Express Geoffrey Zakarian, and you’ll find this delightful summer concoction served at The Water Club here in Atlantic City. With summer here, we can’t think of a better way to welcome in the season.
The Water Club Hotel at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has always been a unique feature of our resort, offering up a singularly different type of Atlantic City experience just steps away from the casino, nightlife and dining at Borgata.
The 43-story, $400 million hotel features 800 guestrooms and suites; Immersion, a two-story spa on the 32nd floor, 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools – indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct individuality; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation.
At The Water Club, the emphasis is on relaxation and getting away from it all. So in a very non-stressful way, Borgata is offering another of our new hotel package deals that takes in all that The Water Club has to offer.
