Kelsey’s is a great supper club in Atlantic City with awesome live music and happy hour specials.

When Kelsey and Kimberly Jackson opened Kelsey’s Atlantic City in December 2012, they were filling a void in A.C.

They had deemed that a supper club — one that mimicked Harlem’s heyday of the early 1900s — was sorely missing in town. So the local husband and wife team, who were already the proprietors of Kelsey & Kim’s Soul Food & BBQ in Pleasantville and Kelsey & Kim’s in Atlantic City, opened Kelsey’s, Atlantic City’s only supper club. It’s a warm and inviting concept restaurant that truly stands out from casino restaurants and other dining spots in town.
