Boogie Nights

Boogie Nights

Atlantic City’s Tropicana Casino and Resort needed a complete solution after management decided to covert a section of its casino into the retro ‘70s- and ‘80s-themed dance club, Boogie Nights. The venue comprised a long space just off the casino floor with three sections, including a dance floor area, a bar, and a lounge, as well as a VIP area and a balcony area that performers and dancers access.

Starlite was approached to design and install the venue’s entire audio, video, control, and lighting system to help boost Boogie Nights as a premier night club featuring unprecedented sound, intelligent lighting, fog and bubble machines, video projectors, and the biggest disco ball on the Atlantic City strip.

“Starlite did a fantastic job with the entire project, especially since the installation experience was very challenging,” said David Peña, Owner of Boogie Nights. “Since the club is a transformation of a huge open space, it was a difficult room to fill evenly with audio. The sound system is incredible! Customers constantly comment on how impressed they are and how clean it sounds. The lounge area has great energy while allowing patrons to still have a conversation due to the ability to direct sound. The loudspeakers most definitely complete the Boogie Nights experience. Some of our other clubs have JBL and we have always had great experiences with their products. JBL is a name I feel comfortable with and I know their speakers are dance quality.”
