Welcome to the first annual Nightmare in ONEderland at REVEL, Atlantic City's newest mega resort in the northeast! Unwind and feel the energy at Atlantic City's hotspot from the New York-based company, The ONE Group. The main space features a bar, DJ booth, cocktail lounge and mini billiard to create the ultimate atmosphere.The Studded Stiletto Lounge is located on the border of the oceanfront restaurant, giving you beautiful views of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. This edgy lounge is furnished with cushy, gray studded couches and is accented with colorful theatrical ligthing. Dance the night away as the music from the DJ flows throughout the space for the ultimate party atmosphere.
The relatively new Kolo Klub, located above Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, in Hoboken, is all about the cocktails. With super mixologists straight from NYC, the bartenders here sure know how to whip up a mean drink. September is National Bourbon Month and luckily enough this cocktail den knows all about booze- especially bourbon. Try their Old Fashioned ($12) made with Jim Beam Rye/Bourbon, angostura bitters and garnished with a cherry and orange wedge or opt for their classic Manhattan ($12), which is comprised of Jim Beam Rye/Bourbon, sweet vermouth, angostura bitters and garnished with a cherry or lemon twist. Both cocktails can be made with Makers 46 or Knob Creek Rye for an additional charge. So celebrate bourbon like it’s going out of style at Kolo Klub!
Pilsener Haus & Biergarten in Hoboken, NJ is stepping it up a notch with their 4000 sq. ft. second floor loft space, Kolo Klub. Barmen Michael Neff and Kenneth McCoy will be consulting on the opening cocktail program for the new space, introducing Hoboken to a new level of mixology. On Friday and Saturday nights until 2am, Kolo Klub will be boasting the ultimate cocktail experience where guests can try artisanal libations and nibble on small bites.
Deciding what to eat for dinner may be one of the most complicated decisions you make on a daily basis. Even more so when you live in a diverse culinary environment like the New York Metropolitan area. Let’s eat Italian. Let’s get Mexican. Let’s try Indian. No one ever throws out Molecular as a suggestion but Chef Tre Ghoshal of Adara in Montclair, New Jersey is on a mission to change that. Many New Yorkers, are wary of leaving the culinary offerings of the city for dinner but shouldn’t be—Adara and Montclair, the food capital of New Jersey, is easily accessible by a 35-minute ride on the New Jersey Transit.
We live in a peculiar era of music. What persists around us is a constant clash of new and old. The collision of styles, sounds, and tools of the past and present put interesting pressures on artists to create something which is completely their own. With the power of laptop production and knowledge of the classic principles of music breeds a new generation of musicians. Limited only by time and enhanced by their personal, constantly expanding abilities, these unique talents reign true in an industry gripped with mediocrity.
Amongst these forward thinking producers rests the uber-talented Jake Weary, aka Agendas. This New Jersey native, Los Angeles transplant has been molding and adapting his style and passion since he could walk. Armed with a rich voice and an ultimate melodic ear he pushes his music to defy the norms of the electronic sound that have been so universally accepted.
The daily lives of the cast members of 'Jersey Shore' never cease to fascinate. I mean, where do you go after you've already conquered the hearts and minds of the world? Well, if you happen to be Big Ron, you start making music. Yup, you read that correctly; Ronnie Magro just recently dropped his brand new single 'How the F--- We Gettin' Home' and it's just about everything you would think it would be.
Singing over a pretty straightforward club beat, Ronnie shares some of that wisdom he's acquired from going hard every night at the club: "Waiting for a night like this, I’ve been waiting for so long / We don’t take it easy, someone take my keys, please / I don’t think I’m able to drive.” Wise words. Check out the track below!
Snooki, The Situation and J-Woww, to name a few of your favorite Jersey Shore castmates, are back in Seaside Heights to film season six of their hit reality show on MTV.
Season six will feature every cast member but with a few changes. The craziness might be a little toned down, especially with six-months-pregnant Snooki, who has said that she will not be living in the house or get caught at Karma, one of her old favorite stomping grounds.
"I don't want to be one of those moms who's pregnant in a club," Snooki told Us Weekly. Also someone we can expect to be a little less wild is The Situation, who had a rehab stint in April to overcome an addiction to prescription pills. Ah, the trial and tribulations of America's favorite shit show.
We can't wait to see what absurdity season six brings. Stay tuned....
So, it's June here in the great state of New Jersey. You know what that means? Well, nothing in particular

When Revel announced that their residency program at the HQ Nightclub would feature some of the world's premier DJs, not many people gave them a second look. Oh how those people were mistaken. Joining the likes of Dirty South, Dada Life and Calvin Harris, DJ A-Trak is set to spend the summer there, playing four dates over the next few months.
This is HUGE, as A-Trak is one of the most accomplished, talented and well known DJs working in the business today. The exclusive road DJ for Kanye West, A-Trak has built up a huge roster of mega celebs that he DJs for, including Drake, Kid Cudi, Lupe Fiasco and more.
Memorial Day is the official kick-off of the year's summer festivities and Joonbug's got you covered.
