Club Reports: Atlantic Dance Hall, Jellyrolls

I went "down the shore" last night to visit the boardwalk back behind Disney's Boardwalk Resort. First stop Atlantic Dance Hall, the place where just like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get!

 DJ Tony B was on the boards putting out Top 40/Dance music videos for the masses. Tony is also the Tuesday night DJ at The Groove and is a veteran of many Pleasure Island venues.
Unfortunately the masses consisted of just a few dozen patrons.  At least many of them did dance!
The staple "Cupid Shuffle" always jams the floor at ADH.
Directly across the boardwalk is Jellyrolls, a dueling piano bar that I always walked past but decided to drop in this time to see how they're doing.
It actually was jammed with around 250 people!

One of four dueling piano bars in the Orlando area, it is one of the more consistently popular entertainment options for adults on Disney property. (Outside the theme parks, there really are few options since Pleasure Island clubs were closed.)

Once part of a chain, this is the only remaining Jellyrolls. I had previously visited their Atlanta and Tampa locations but both closed years ago.  But with the crowd singing in unison to the songs, a visit to Jellyrolls is almost a religious experience!  And a lot of fun!
