ATLANTIC CITY — Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa said Tuesday it will open an 18,000-square-foot nightclub, Premier, in spring of 2016.
The space is designed to effect “a theatrical experience for partygoers” and compete against blockbuster clubs in Las Vegas, New York and Miami, the resort said in a statement.
Tiered booths will tilt toward a dj station, stage and “digital proscenium.” Carved-stone bars 35 feet long will flank the main room, with a horseshoe-shaped mezzanine and 25-foot-wide digitally programmable chandelier hanging overhead.
The space is being constructed at the site of the former MIXX nightclub.
It will replace mur.mur, Borgata’s flagship nightclub.
The project is being funded by Borgata’s legally required contributions to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. CRDA contributions also funded Festival Park, the outdoor concert venue Borgata opened in June.
“Premier Nightclub will provide partygoers with an experience that is unmatched in Atlantic City, further reinforcing Borgata’s position as the market-leading resort destination,” Joe Lupo, Borgata’s senior vice president of operations, said in a statement.
Premier was designed by Josh Held, a New York firm behind Marquee NYC and TAO Las Vegas, among other clubs. Premier’s inaugural DJ act will be announced shortly, Lupo said.
