One of America’s favorite gambling cities now has an exciting new cocktail bar.
Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge just joined the nightlife roster at Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. An intimate venue for high-end gaming, curated entertainment and innovative cocktails, Level One showcases a one-of-a-kind drink menu by MGM Resorts’ master mixologist Craig Schoettler, making it the place to see and be seen before and after a night out in Atlantic City. Schoettler has made a significant name for himself in Las Vegas, reimagining the cocktail programs at many of the city’s most-successful destinations, as well as the cocktail program at Borgata.
Connected to Moneyline Bar & Book through an escalated corridor, Level One’s design features a pop of peacock greens, copper and cork-inspired wallcoverings. Featuring glass link chandeliers above four blackjack tables, the 3,600-square-foot venue offers customizable seating with lounge chairs, sofas and ottomans for private groups. Just steps away from Premier Nightclub, Level One reignites Borgata’s nightlife brand with a space for experiential cocktail programming and table service packages with live music and DJ entertainment scheduled throughout the week. On game nights, the lounge offers guests a more exclusive viewing experience to the nearby Moneyline, with the added ability to play blackjack as they take in the event.
In addition, Borgata had the idea to purchase an awesome piece of memorabilia to complement Level One’s sports influence. After weeks of research, they found a Babe Ruth check which has a GEM score of 10. It is considered very rare because it was actually written out by Babe himself and not his secretary. The ink is still bold and fluid. The check is now for sale at Level One Cocktail Bar & Lounge for a cool $40,000.
When a guest buys this one-of-a-kind item, it will be brought out on a vintage Victrola while “Ain’t She Sweet” by Bernie & His Orchestra plays. To complete the experience, it will be paired with a long pour of the 1940 Macallan Fine & Rare, as scotch was widely reported as Babe’s favorite drink. Both the check and the Victrola will be the purchaser’s to keep.
