The hottest party of the year – Atlantic City Weekly’s Nightlife Awards – returns to Boogie Nights at the Tropicana Casino and Resort on Thursday, Jan. 21, and you will help decide who can brag for a year that they are the best at something in this awesome, competitive, South Jersey nightlife scene.

This year’s Nightlife Awards – hosted by comedian Butch Bradley of Butch Bradley’s Hideaway in Atlantic City - will be a little different than past years, where readers selected a winner and runner-up. Now, there will be two legitimate winners in each category: Reader’s Choice and Critic’s Choice.

We tweaked some categories, deleted some categories, added some others, all with the goal of making the 2016 Nightlife Awards bigger, better and more valued than ever.

Any nightlife venue from Atlantic County qualifies, from Atlantic City to Somers Point to Hammonton to Galloway, so choose wisely. We started off every category with a few suggestions, but please feel free to write in who you think deserves to win each category. Voters are allowed to cast their ballot once per day from now through Dec. 31.

So vote often, spread the word, and plan to attend what we know will be the best Nightlife Awards ever!
