5 Ways to Beat the Winter Chill in Atlantic City

Published: December 2022

Ahhh the holidays—frosted gingerbread cookies, crackling fires, matching sweaters, and…sandy beaches? 

While the frosted trees and scarf-clad carolers of the holidays are certainly quintessential to wintertime, not even the first snow can beat the sparkle and glitter of AC in the winter. 

Our winter festivities glisten: Strap on your boots for dazzling holiday displays, scrumptious cocktail creations, and magical live performances and jingles all season long. 

#1 Cirque Dreams Holidaze

This December, head down to Ocean Casino Resort for one of the most delightful and spectacular Atlantic City events blowing in this winter. Acclaimed circus troupe Cirque Dreams decks Ovation Hall this month with Cirque Dreams Holidaze.

This spectacle of merriment rolls the holidays into one to celebrate Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s with jolly tunes, whimsical costumes, and out-of-this-world acrobatic tricks. 

And it’s all wrapped up in a Broadway-styled bow. 

In tune with Santa, they’re only visiting for one magical night—so you’ll want to add your tickets to your holiday list swiftly!

#2 Jingle Bell Bar

Beginning November 25th and running through the end of the year, Atlantic City nightlife events are getting a holiday makeover with Ocean Casino Resort’s second annual Jingle Bell Bar

This one-of-a-kind pop-up experience gives new meaning to the word festive. 

Located in our 1927 Lounge, the Jingle Bell Bar is this season’s top spot to sip, socialize, and celebrate the holidays. Mosey down to the lounge to be transported to a world of spirited revelry, with:

  • Nostalgic decorations
  • Festive cocktails 
  • Holiday-themed entertainment

#3 Wintertime Nightlife

The Jingle Bell Bar isn’t your only option for experiencing Atlantic City events after dark. When you stay at Ocean Casino Resort, you’re surrounded by a bounty of advent calendar events that are sure to knock your stockings off. 

Grab your friends, deck yourself in your best holiday attire, and sleigh all night long at our many lounges and nightclubs:

  • HQ2 Nightclub – For a true dose of Atlantic City nightlife, you have to visit our HQ2 Nightclub. Featuring two levels of late-night revelry, this immersive club experience is just what you need if you like packed dance floors, incredible DJs, and seasonal parties in Atlantic city.
  • Villain & Saint – Our modern gastropub isn’t just the place to go to for delicious drinks, mouth-watering food, and the best live rock-n-roll in Atlantic City. Villain & Saint is also the home of the best bartenders in town, according to Casino Players Best of Dining & Nightlife awards.
  • Nola’s Bar & Lounge – Located right on the casino floor, Nola’s features 2,800 square feet of prime partying space. Featuring the best live acts in Atlantic City and appearances by the best DJS, Nola’s knows how to keep your glass and your excitement level filled to the brim.

#4 Live Entertainment

No one in Atlantic City does live entertainment quite like Ocean Casino Resort. And all winter long we’re packing our stages with big-name headliners from the worlds of music, comedy, and reality TV to transform Atlantic City into a go-to winter destination. 

From November through February, a trip to Ocean Casino Resort is all it takes to experience live shows from compelling local and national acts, like Duran Duran, DJ Whoo Kid, and Telykast. 

But that’s not all. By the time February rolls around and you’re deep in the winter doldrums, you can come down to Ovation Hall to check out three live shows to beat the winter blues:

  • Theresa Caputo – The Long Island Psychic is bringing her brand of empowering mysticism to Atlantic City with her one-of-a-kind stage show on February 11th. She’ll talk about her incredible gifts and how they work, regale with stories from her life, and inspire the audience to connect with loved ones who have passed. Tickets are available now. 
  • Kool and the Gang – Legendary funk band Kool and the Gang are coming to Ovation Hall for a one-night-only event on February 18th. They’re innovators of funk-soul music and they’re bringing the house down in a live show that’s not to be missed.
  • Elvis Costello – Grammy award-winner, Songwriters Hall of Fame and Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and Billboard chart topper Elvis Costello will be lighting up the stage at Ovation Hall on February 25th. Come for your chance to hear this pop maestro perform hits from a career spanning the 1970s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and today, like “Veronica,” “(I Don’t Want To Go to) Chelsea,” “Man Out of Time,” and much, much more. 

#5 Unwind, Relax, and Rejuvenate

Sure, live shows featuring the biggest talents, incredible bars with DJ spinning the best tunes, and razzle-dazzle holiday spectaculars are fantastic ways to celebrate the end of the year. But sometimes, you’re just in the mood to kick back and relax.

For a winter wonderland of bliss, unwind at Exhale Spa & Bathhouse.

Voted New Jersey’s #1 spa and one of the top 100 spas in the country by Spa America, Exhale is the perfect escape from the stress of the holiday season. After the gifts have been unwrapped and the holiday decorations packed away, come down to Ocean Casino Resort for spa treatments to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul for the coming year. 

Choose from any of our fabulous options, including: 

  • Facials
  • Peels
  • Body scrubs
  • Massages
  • Waxing

Or, you can go all-out with one of our all-access passes or our special Day of Restoration package—all without leaving the hotel.
