Atlantic City, NJ
If you’ve never been to Atlantic City, imagine what it would be like if you took Las Vegas out of the desert and stuck it on the beach. There is something for every kind of drinker here: Fancy yourself a cocktail? #BarWithNoName, the region’s first craft cocktail bar, has a selection of signature drinks like their French Canadian—made with Lot 40 rye, Cointreau, maraschino liqueur, St-Germain and orange—or an upscale Gin and Juice, made with Brooklyn gin, cherry herring and Aperol (as well as classics like Sazeracs and Negronis). More of a beer guy? Stop by the Cape May Brewing Company Taproom for an IPA. Will drink anything you can get for free? Put a few chips on black or play the pass line at the craps table and score free drink after free drink at the Borgata. When it comes to boozy boardwalks, AC is paradise.
