Resorts Atlantic City hosts Boogie Nights events

2 November 2007

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– It's time to get your groove on! Resorts Atlantic City announced that it will host a new series of special events called Boogie Nights. The concept, developed in partnership with celebrated Atlantic City nightlife visionary David Pena, will offer a new form of entertainment at an affordable price. Open to the public at just a $5 cover charge, and free for hotel guests and casino employees, Boogie Nights promises to be a unique nightlife experience.

Boogie Nights is a dance party dedicated to bringing back the music, styles and pop culture of the 70s and 80s. Guests will be treated to all of their favorite disco, pop and dance hits, from Abba to ZZ Top, spun by a live DJ. A video wall displaying music videos and visual imagery from each era will set the mood, and invite customers to hit the dance floor underneath the shimmering disco ball.

Whether the theme is 70s or 80s, Boogie Nights guests will enjoy being transported back to another place in time. Guests can expect to see Roller Girl zipping around on roller skates, a Michael Jackson tribute artist mingling with the crowd, and art, memorabilia and furnishings from the 70s and 80s. The authenticity of the surroundings, coupled with the visual imagery and live music, makes Boogie Nights a true retro dance party.

"By working with David, we know Boogie Nights will be unlike anything else in the entire city," said Tony Rodio, Regional President of the Atlantic City Hilton and Resorts Atlantic City. "He's a proven success in the Atlantic City nightlife world and, as evidenced by his success with Planet Rose at The Quarter, he knows how to produce a successful hotspot - specifically a hotspot in this city. Boogie Nights will be no exception."

Peña, the creative force behind the Boogie Nights concept, is known for his success at Planet Rose in The Quarter at Tropicana. The popularity of Planet Rose is due in large part to his creativity and his penchant for off-the-beaten-path ideas.

"Boogie Nights is not a nightclub," said Peña. "It's more of a scene from your favorite movie or book. As soon as you enter, you're completely immersed in the theme of the night, from eye-popping imagery to iconic characters that interact with the crowd. The whole event is designed to reinforce the retro experience. Whether it's the décor, the people, the music or the videos, we want the guest to feel like they've escaped for a little while - and had fun doing it."

Boogie Nights is slated to host events on holiday weekends or during times when big events are scheduled, like the $1 Million Winner Take All Slot Tournament in November and New Year's Eve weekend. The idea is to give players as well as the general public something additional to do during their visit – something completely different.

The Boogie Nights event schedule is as follows: November 23 and 24 and December 28 - 31, 2007 and January 18 and 19 and February 15 and 16, 2008. Doors open at 8 p.m. The parties will complement already exciting weekends with its own unique brand of entertainment, punctuated with contests and prizes. Select evenings at Boogie Nights will be offered as parts of room and dining packages. Boogie Nights is located on the Dining Level between The Ballroom and Capriccio.
