Rocker Sammy Hagar’s beach bar at Bally’s Atlantic City will open this weekend with the action starting Friday, May 18, from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. Sammy’s will also be open on Saturday and Sunday, noon-3 a.m., then re-open on Memorial Day Weekend daily for the duration of the summer.
While Hagar’s beach bar is rockin’ with Crushing Day and DJ Q Ball, the Red Rocker himself and his super-group Chickenfoot will be playing down the Boardwalk at the Showboat’s House of Blues on Friday.
Hagar earned a reputation for putting together a party bar with his famous Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas and brought that approach to A.C. a couple of years ago with his Bally’s beach bar.
When Sammy’s officially opens for the summer season on Memorial Day Weekend, the star attraction will be legendary reggae band, The Wailers. The band, originally formed by Bob Marley in 1963, is known for all-time hits, such as “I Shot the Sheriff”, “No Woman, No Cry” and “Get Up, Stand Up”.
Hagar’s new Beach Bar Rum will also be available at Sammy’s Beach Bar and there will be a long list of beach cocktail specials—Sammy’s Maui Libre with Beach Bar Rum and Coke ($5) on Saturdays and Skyy Infusions Cherry Limeades ($5) on Industry Sundays, Cabo Wabo Margaritas and Shots ($6) and Hennessey Black & Belvedere Cocktails ($5) on Latin Mondays, and others.
They call the food Mexican fusion and the menu features Spicy Jersey Shore Fries, Sea Salt Spiced Peel & Eat Shrimp and Wabo Wings and Burgers.
A variety of packages and accommodations for parties of any size can be arranged by calling 609-236-6983. Additionally, Bally’s is offering an On the Beach at Sammy’s Room Package, which includes $30 Sammy’s Beach Bar food and beverage credit. For more information, visit www.ballysac.com.
