1 What's in a name? A club by any other name, well, isn't quite as sweet in the case of Live Bar, which has had several names before. Prior to its complete renovation at the end of 2011, it was The Red Room, The Disco and The Wave, the latter two while under management by Trump Entertainment. All of those iterations were decent, but Live Bar is a reimagined rock club that's getting more attention than all of them as a significant piece of Landry's $150 million renovation of the casino.

Variety is the name of Edward Abdill's game, and many partygoers throughout southern New Jersey know when he's behind the turntables, anything can happen. Of course, they likely also know him better as DJ Eddie Edge.
"I will play anything that people want to hear," Abdill says. "Every room I play is different, and I am into making any party come alive."
1 It's all that remains of the "Barbary Coast." Amherst Avenue earned that nickname when it used to be the Bourbon Street of bayside Margate during the '60s, '70s and '80s, with hundreds of sloppy college students traversing between more than a dozen bars and pubs. The historical reference to the North African coast and its once-pirate-filled ports is probably lost on today's 20-somethings, and the scenes of anything-goes mayhem on the avenue are mostly lost as well. Maynard's, which was named after original owner Billy Maynard when it opened in 1914, is the last bastion of that raucous past, as most of the old bars nearby have closed to be replaced by condos and more "civilized" up-scale restaurants.
