Once again A.C. Weekly has put together a night to pay tribute to the hard working folks within the industry at the 2020 Nightlife Awards to be held Thursday, Feb. 20, at Boogie Nights at Tropicana Atlantic City.

The critics, along with thousands of readers, cast votes for who is the best of the best when it comes to Atlantic City’s nightlife scene, and now the votes are in. Over 50 categories in total will be presented, with awards ranging from Best Tequila Bar to Nightclub of the Year. And each will be honored live onstage.

The doors will open to the public at 8 p.m. with the awards beginning at 8:30 p.m. There will also be live performances from Dead Reckoning, Nancy Malcun and Miss’d America 2020 Sapphira Pageant, as well as a variety of special guests and presenters.
