“The Ultimate 70’s and 80’s dance club”

Boogie Nights Hollywood Casino | Lawrenceburg Indiana

Studio 54 may have had an A-List Hollywood clientele but Boogie Nights offers the same scene to everyone. The top floor Hollywood Casino night club is decked out in the decadent style of the 70’s & 80’s New York dance clubs. The staff is decked out too. The guys and gals of this pleasure palace look like they just time warped straight out of Studio 54. Much effort has gone into re-creating that velvet rope experience that captivated the nation in the 70’s. It was swinger sex parties, 8-track disco, bell bottoms, sideburns, platform shoes, crushed velvet and cocaine. Some would say the age personified the word party. Boogie Nights personifies that term too.

Entering the club you go past a lounge then down the escalator. Even before you get on the steps you see the massive illuminated dance floor platform. A sea of people seem to fill every inch of space in the club. As the escalator disappears into the floor you’re left standing still on the edge of the party. Go right, you find a bar and dance floor side seating. Go left, your eyes feast on the folks living it up in the roped off VIP areas. The VIP area lines the walls around the dance floor that nearly encompasses the entire club. Keep going, now your deep in a sea of flesh. Squeeze your way to the center of the dance floor and you’re lost in a sexy tangle of legs, ladies, short skirts and skin. The smell of perfume and sweat fill the air. Now, you’re there. This is what it’s all about. But wait, the music stops. Spotlights light a stage above the DJ booth... a man in black emerges out of the shadows, everyone watches anxiously. The music morphs, the man jumps into the light and turns, facing the crowd, face hidden under a fedora. Then he springs up in the air flings the hat off and,,, it’s Michael Jackson! (well, almost). He damn sure dances like the pop king and the show stops all in their tracks as they stare up at the impressive impersonation. All movement on the dance floor stills as the King of Pop shudders, shakes, slides and slivers to Michael’s top pop tracks. After “Michael” Moonwalks his way off stage you find you’re thirsty and the martinis look too good to leave alone any longer. There are bars on both sides and lovely ladies man drink stations in-between. Surprisingly, even with a several hundred person crowd you can quench that craving quickly. Drink in hand, you may choose to peruse the perimeter and take in the sights. If you’re looking for sexy ladies groovin’ just look above the DJ booth. There you’ll find hot go-go girls with plenty of go-go to go around, and they don’t mind guys gawking at all. Before you even go you’d best dress to impress. The club is “come one come all” but that doesn’t necessarily mean “come straight from work” (unless you work at De Ja Vu). If you want to see and be seen, leave the jeans in the dryer. This is pomp decadence. It’s velvet rope-dancing queen all night long. You’ll feel like a minnow in a sea of sharks if you show up in khakis & a Tee.

If you do work at De Ja Vu take advantage of Boogie Night’s Service Industry Night. All casino & service industry employees are treated like VIPs on Thursdays, show your ID and get in free. On the weekends you’ll pay $10 at the door (except special events and such). To get your gang in the “cooler than you” VIP area call 888-274-6797 to book your package (4 to choose from $175-$400). You’d be wise to book it well in advance. See the Hollywood Casino Boogie Nights site for events and VIP package pricing information (www.hollywoodindiana.com/sitemng/ents). It’s been a long time since people could be convinced to drive a half hour or more to go out to a dance club. But then again it’s been a long time since there has been one with this much gusto to go-go to. They bill it as “The Ultimate 70’s & 80’s Dance Club” and we see no reason to argue that.
