The Jersey Shore isn’t going to let a superstorm get in the way of its summertime fun. A good portion of the area is not only open and ready for your tourism dollars, but the folks there are pushing new ways for you to experience it — from big clubs to dog-friendly beach bars.

HQ Beach Club/HQ Nightclub at Revel
For those who like their summertime with a heavy dose of party, there’s HQ Beach Club and HQ Nightclub, two new destinations at Atlantic City’s newest casino, Revel. For night owls, the HQ Nightclub will host a revolving cast of high-profile DJs. And those who like their sunshine with a side of table service should try the HQ Beach Club, a luxe pool lounge with model servers offering bottle service for those relaxing on their daybeds or bungalows (reservations required).

Pier Village’s Le Club Avenue
The Jersey Shore gets exclusive with the Avenue’s Beach Club, located in Long Branch. The members-only club is family-friendly during the day but transforms into a more adults-only spot at night with cocktails, a full menu and open-air lounges complete with a rooftop pool. Membership prices range from $3,000 to $5,500; weekend passes are also available when capacity permits. Call 732-759-2900 for more information.

Beach Shack/Rusty Nail goes pet friendly
Going to the beach doesn’t mean that your favorite furry friend has to stay home. The Beach Shack, Cape May’s laid-back beachfront motel, is allowing dogs to stay overnight as well as to dine (from a new doggie menu) at popular beach bar the Rusty Nail. Rates for the Paw’s Up package start at $156 a night, which includes a $35 a night pet fee.

Haven nightclub
The Golden Nugget is making a big play in the nightlife market with the opening of its brand-new Haven Nightclub. The latest entry into the AC nightlife scene boasts a state-of-the-art DJ booth, LED video wall, dance floor, 25 banquettes offering signature table service and two full-service bars. Ke$ha and Pitbull will be on hand for this weekend’s grand opening.
