Night clubs, dancing for Baby Boomers?

Is there any local night clubs that plays BABY BOOMER music to dance to? Why aren't there any?

I remember the "old folks" going to Jitterbugs at the Clinton Holiday Inn to go dancing, but that was a few years ago. Not sure what they're doing there now...

You could try Classic Ballroom in Hastings Plaza. They have open parties every Friday and Saturday night where people dance to music from all time periods and genres including 50's 60's and 70's music. I don't know if that's the kind of thing your looking for specifically but hopefully that helps. :)

Wish the Nook was still around!

We'll second the recommendation on Classic Ballroom at Hastings Square. Fun crowd and good music.

Too many lawyers in our area.The Nook had cops from 3 counties waiting to pull people over.That was a fun place though!

There is an oldies/doowop group, "DESIRE " that plays locally and around the ABE area and often they are dancing events. More info ( you can get on email list) via:

Pavinci's in Hopatcong has bands and a great dance floor. They usually get a pretty good crowd of baby boomers. The schedule should be posted on their website.

I think "Desire Oldies" came to the summer programs that the Town of Hackettstown used to have.

There is a group that DONALDSON's had a couple of times called LAST KALL. They sometimes play in Dover and Lake Hopatcong. Good music of the '60's and 70" also.

Dancing is great...just a reminder though...avoid dancing on Good Friday as it's coming up....that's a day that should be observed and hopefully the local discos are closed in honor of it...

Hank, why should discos and dancing halls be closed then?

And why exactly should we observe Good Friday? Not everyone in the state of NJ is a practicing christian (catholic or protestant).
