City Pulse

By PK Greenfield

In need of an ocean breeze and an adult beverage? Desire to end your summer on the dance floor? Gather up your gang and head to the “Jersey Shore” — this is not what you’ve seen on TV. Atlantic City is home to the Chelsea, a modern boutique hotel. Perched a seagull’s yell away from the gamblers and grittier city elements, it houses two popular hot spots: C5 and the
Cabana Club.

On the hotel’s sprawling, landscaped roof deck, eight private cabanas line perpendicular to the Atlantic Ocean. Their black-and-white canvas tarps billow in the salty air just a few feet away from a swimming pool — very Great Gatsby. The cabanas are available by reservation to accommodate your group with comfortable chaise lounge chairs, flat-screen TVs, and bottle service from the finest champagnes to top-shelf liquors and aperitifs. Fifty-year aged Giorgio Gucci Cognac anyone? Food and beverage manager, Thomas Gagliardi, can help accommodate all of your epicurious desires. Bottle service runs from the Ace of Spades Rosé magnum to Jay-Z’s alleged favorite XO, and just about everything in between.

It’s Happy Hour! I recommend the Chelsea Signature Cocktail: muddled lemon and mint, Ultimat Vodka, simple syrup, shaken and served with a prosecco float, then garnished with a thinly sliced English cucumber — it’s fragrant, refreshing, and just the right kick.

Now, take a dip in the pool or enjoy the sand ‘n surf, have dinner at the Chelsea Prime, then get ready to dance the night away. Make sure your entourage brings their best party outfits; the crowd arrives late and all are dressed to compete from the runway to the dance floor.

Adjoining the Cabana Club is the pulsating party vibe of C5. The club hosts many popular guest DJs from around the world. The August/September DJ lineup includes: Paul Castro, Vitalik & Ahmed Khan, DJ Sammy, Ed Smooth, and more. For more info on C5 and the Cabana Club, head to http://www.chelseaacinnercircle.com/.
