"When people come to Boogie Nights, they know they are in for the time of their lives. The new nightclub will be approximately 8,000 square feet and will allow the opportunity for us to do what we have always dreamed." Pena added. Boogie Nights DJs will spin the traditional high energy dance mixes from the 70s and 80s, as well as freestyle, pop, club music and more to set the soundtrack for fun. Video walls throughout the nightclub will display music videos, excerpts from commercials, television shows, movies and other iconic images. Sexy go-go dancers, pop and lock dancers, hula hoopers, tribute artists, look-a-likes and characters such as Roller Girl will all be part of this exciting blast from the past Almost simultaneously, Resorts Casino Hotel announced Atlantic City’s newest club, Night Fever Dance Club – The Hottest 70’s & 80’s Experience is now open.
