Mur.Mur nightclub is located inside of The Borgata hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. Since the Borgata opened in July, 2003 it has continued to raise the standards of what a hotel and casino should be in Atlantic City. The Borgata brings Vegas to AC in a big way - the moment you arrive you start to forget you're in Atlantic City. High ceilings, marbled floors and walls, blown glass chandeliers, artwork straight from Italy, and beautiful Borgata Babes serving cocktails in skimpy outfits. Borgata has world class entertainment and extremely upscale dining. And its nightlife scene is a force to be reckoned with: A-list celebrities, musicians, and DJ's perform and party at the Borgata on a regular basis. John Mayer, Paris Hilton, DJ Steven Aoki, DJ Samantha Ronson, and Philadelphia Phillies player Ryan Howard are just among the few celebs that like to come play at Borgata. Don't get me wrong, The Taj Mahal is great and everything, but it's not everyday you'll be sitting at a black jack table rubbing elbows with John Mayer.
With all of these celebrity influences, the Borgata is constantly improving their dining and nightlife facilities to ensure that they are ahead of the game, that is nightlife. There are two main featured nightclubs in the Borgata, The Mixx, and Mur.Mur, there are also two featured casino bar/lounges, B Bar and the Gypsy Bar. Mur.Mur has made a name for itself from the second its doors opened - when you think "Borgata" you automatically think "Mur.Mur."
Mur.Mur is one of the best nightclubs I have ever been to in AC. I spent my 21st birthday there in the beginning of this past summer, and it was a night that will live on in infamy (just kidding... maybe.) One of the best things about going out and partying at the Borgata (if you're a female) is that the Borgata caters to an older crowd, and they take themselves very seriously. You will never see under-aged kids out with fake ID's, and you will always run into friendly gentlemen who are more than ready to have a great time, and buy you and your friends drinks. Just tryin' to point you ladies in the right direction, and that direction is the Borgata.
But anyway, from the second we got in line for Mur.Mur two guys asked us if we wouldn't mind joining them at their table where they had bought a few bottles, so my friends and I accepted this gracious invitation without a second thought. We had our ID's checked, our hands stamped, and then we were lead down a private elevator that is reserved for bottle service guests. We were lead through the crowd by a bouncer and into our private booth, which was literally right on the dance floor, but roped off so that we had our own private space to dance and drink. It was amazing - the music was bumping, the lights were flashing, and everyone was dancing. The dance floor at Mur.Mur is on a lower level of the club, and is shaped like a giant rectangle, so it can get kind of tight at times, but it's good because when you're buying a drink at one of the three bars, you don't have to worry about people dancing all over you while you're trying to order. The drinks are pretty expensive, but you get what you pay for, right?
After dancing for awhile, we were led to an extremely private, ultra VIP room by a bouncer. And who were we all of a sudden partying with? I would let you guess, but I'm just going to tell you... Ryan Howard! Yes, the Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team. I guess the party gods were on my side that night because he was very friendly, and wished me a happy birthday. He let us party with him for the rest of the night, and even told us that Ashlee Simpson and her husband Pete Wentz of the band Fall Out Boy were in a private VIP booth a few booths down. Mur.Mur is so upscale, and so very posh, that you never know what celeb you may run into, and even get the chance to party with! So get dressed up, throw on your dancing shoes, and go forth and PARTY!
