In early November, seemingly unaware that it was no longer summer, hundreds of well-dressed twenty-somethings packed the mahogany dance floors of Revel Casino’s HQ Nightclub just to catch a glimpse of Porter Robinson. A staple of East Coast night life throughout the summer, HQ and it’s host hotel Revel have not missed a beat since the change of the seasons, riding a wave of buzz following Tiësto’s Beach Club set on its closing weekend. Now well into the fall, its nightlife remains un-phased. Porter Robinson’s debut at the seaside club drew a sold out crowd from Philadelphia and New York City, all eager to see the electro house DJ outside the confines of warehouses and festivals.
This New Year’s Eve weekend, HQ Nightclub in Atlantic City will be hosting a showcase of some of the biggest and brightest talent in dance music to celebrate the end of 2013. Over the course of four days, from December 27th through December 31st, world-renowned DJs including Afrojack, Hardwell, Nervo, R3hab and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano will takeover HQ nightclub to ring in the New Year.
For New Yorkers trying to escape the hustle of New Year’s Eve in the city, Revel and HQ nightclub provide the perfect sanctuary from the Times Square tourist-crowd. Tickets are available now.
Like any native of New Jersey, much of my younger 20s were spent stumbling through the neon lit and awkwardly carpeted atriums of Atlantic City’s dated casinos. In terms of luxury and elegance there wasn’t much to look forward to along the Jersey coastline. Debauchery? yes, luxury? hell no. When news of Revel’s development began, our eyes once again looked towards the Jersey coast. Their mission was bold – make Atlantic City a destination for more than just geriatrics on slot machines. It’s aim was to bring all of the luxury and grandeur of Vegas’s preeminent hotels to the North East, giving the residents of New Jersey and New York a Vegas of their own. The second we set foot inside the world class establishment last summer for Avicii’s performance at Ovation Hall, there was no question — they had succeeded.
As if Kaskade and Tiesto back to back nights wasn’t enough to solidify HQ Nightclub’s dominance of the Northeast’s EDM explosion, the brand new nightclub has just added Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, Alesso and Otto Knows to the days leading up to the ball drop. Thursday, December 27th will feature Sebastian Ingrosso kicking off the weekend festivities, followed by Axwell on Friday, December 28th and Alesso and Otto Knows on Saturday.
Boasting an unprecedented lineup for the days leading up to 2013, HQ and Revel have continued to establish themselves as the premiere hotspot for dance music in Atlantic City.

HQ Nightclub and HQ Day Club at Revel are beginning to make waves in Atlantic City. The hotel-nightclub combo recently announced Calvin Harris as one of their resident DJ’s but are not stopping there. In hopes of attracting more fans to the city and their venue, Revel has added Dirty South to it’s expanding roster. The Serbian-Australian DJ also has the resident title and is set to perform five dates throughout the year — the first scheduled for this summer. Glamming up Atlantic City is a big undertaking but it seems Revel is off to a good start. Are you enticed by Revel’s offerings?
Atlantic City, New Jersey is probably best described as Las Vegas’ deadbeat little brother. It lives in the shadow of its far superior counterpart, attempting to mimic the Vegas ideology and grandeur but without any of the panache. However, HQ Nightclub and HQ Beach Club at Revel are attempting to change that image by introducing a variety of sleeker events at their more sophisticated venues. To get the ball rolling they’ve just announced that Calvin Harris has been named their resident DJ. Harris, who has captivated listeners with his productions will now captivate HQ club attendees with five upcoming performances — dates to be announced in the near future.
Revel, and it’s attached venues, only opened it’s doors for the first time on April 2nd but is already beginning to make a name for itself with a growing lineup of talent. Not only has the club procured Harris, but Avicii is also scheduled to perform on June 16th. In addition to it’s growing roster, the nightclub boasts four levels of fun — each with a different ambience . Combined with beach club pool parties that Revel is set to rival Atlantic City’s established clubs. Angel Management Group — the same group responsible for Wet Republic in Las Vegas — are the masterminds behind these events, eliminating any doubt that these announcements were all hype and no substance. Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements from Revel.
