As an adult, hanging out where kids play usually generates a bad reaction: parents never like you milling about the playground, and the guards have shadowed you at Chuck E. Cheese ever since you took "ball pit" a bit too literally. For a place that encourages you to hang out where the kids do, mosey on over to H2O Beach Club.
H2O goes as Jersey's own Sahara Sam's Indoor Water Park by day, but'll now be transforming every Saturday night into a dark, dramatically lit club where table and cabana service brings bottles and snacks in an oasis-themed atmosphere with delicate tropical touches, which're also a great way to find out if you're actually dancing with a Caribbean Queen or not. With the kiddie stuff hidden by curtains and well-placed trees, your eyes'll be guided by decoratively lit stone floors to cabanas packed with plushly upholstered wicker sofas, a warm soaker pool where you can get your feet wet, a gigantic tower of club lighting, and a stone-topped bar styled like an ancient temple complete with hieroglyphs and a statue of Anubis, the Egyptian god of the afterlife, who can't wait for the DJ to play "Zombie", or anything off Ready To Die. Securing a premium bottle nets a table (throw in some cash to get a cabana), while the bar's got cocktails and drafts, and the kitchen's rolling out snacks like panzerotti or fried shrimp in a Yuengling batter, or what you call anybody playing rec league softball.
Their code says "dress to impress", so break out your fancy oversized cowboy hat, and there're plans to utilize the retractable roof come summertime, raising the question: why don't indoor water parks get in trouble for being exposed?!
