They have the freshest MIXX.

Every club wants to have it all, be the coolest place around, with the best décor, ambience and drinks. Some get distracted trying to do everything, but at MIXX, the focus is clear from the name: It’s all about the music. If you’re looking for the best DJs, the hottest dance hits, MIXX is your spot. But that doesn’t mean they skimped on the rest of it. This multi-level club keeps it interesting with a square dance floor rimmed by cocktail tables and couches which both service, the bars behind them illuminated by edgy club lighting. Upstairs there are asymmetrical, European-style balconies where patrons observe the action below.

Weekends are for partying.

In summer, the music starts the party on Fridays at 10 p.m. But in the slower season after Labor Day, it becomes strictly a weekend spot, opening on Saturday and Sunday nights. Because they have fewer parties to plan, the ones they do throw are pretty epic. For Labor Day, they brought original DJ Daddy Paul Van Dyk to town. And since it’s the kind of place where industry insiders like to hang out, they did it on a Sunday night, cuz they’re cool that way.

Party down with the partymakers.

Sunday night doesn’t always spring to mind when most people think of a night on the town, but in Atlantic City, chances are you are on vacation, or you’re working in the industry. So you need somewhere to celebrate Sunday Funday. Resident DJ Paul Castro gets the music going about 10 p.m. and keeps the energy level high in between sets by guest DJs and headliners, then he closes out the night with his own signature brand of house music. And every true insider knows to keep an eye on MIXX’s I Love House series featuring house music spun by various visiting DJs such as Steve Aoki on Oct. 12. Tickets go fast, so make sure you stay in the loop.

Mixx your own drinks.

One thing about DJ dance parties is they are chalk full of energy, which is why when things really get rolling you need a home base for you and your party. MIXX offers VIP bottle service with options including everything from vodka, champagne and rum starting about $310 per bottle, to aged tequila and Scotch at $1,250. Of course, they’ll provide all the mixers, and you bring the party people.

Make this house club your home.

Borgata has a reputation to uphold as a metropolitan, Las Vegas-style resort, and that means offering a variety of non-gambling attractions such as dining, shopping and epic party places. Borgata’s Nightlife Rewards program lets you earn comps by spending money at places like MIXX and its sister club that rules Friday and Monday nights, mur.mur. When you sign up, you get freebies such as a drink on the house, and after that you get reduced admission plus invites to coming events and even birthday gifts!
