Club Report: Atlantic Dance

Atlantic Dance is very much like the proverbial box of chocolates because you never know what you're going to get. During an early evening visit this past Friday night (around 11pm) I counted around 100 patrons in there. The dance floor was mostly empty although it did pick up before I departed for The Groove. One of the DJ's who works there told me that one night this past week there was only about 10 customers in there yet the night prior there was over 300! Since the club is not advertised, it's all about how many party people are staying at the adjacent Swan and Dolphin Hotels and to a lesser extent, at Disney's Boardwalk Hotel. Conventioneers generally want to "party" after the meetings are over with and with close to no other options on Disney property, Atlantic Dance can get pretty crowded. For those who have never been, it's a beautiful Art Deco facility playing a Video Dance format of mostly Top 40 and Hip Hop. Open 9am to 2am, the admission fee is always FREE. EXCEPT FOR SPECIAL EVENTS

well if its free to enter then why dont we all plan one night to show up and have the DJ play somekinda of dance music style while were there. It could be a pre party untill the plans for the PI party comes.

The idea itself is not bad. The biggest barrier to such a plan is that most of the "dance" songs we're familiar with from Mannequins don't have videos to go along with them. And for the most part, the DJ's at AD have to play videos with their music. But the idea deserves consideration and let me discuss it with some of the people that could make it happen. Thanks!
