Without nighttime hangouts to keep them out of trouble, adults will take to the streets en masse, tagging mailboxes with their social security numbers and throwing antacid tablets at nervous teenage drivers. Prevent parental pranks with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get two VIP entrances, two drinks, and two slices of pizza at the Boardwalk Complex in historic downtown Erie (a $15 value).
The Boardwalk Complex is the jewel of Erie nightlife, boasting four diverse venues in one location. The laid-back Boardwalk Bar plays host to casual hangouts with dartboards, jukeboxes, and flat-screen TVs, while the luxurious Dream Ultra Lounge swanks up the evening with sleek leather sofas, a mahogany bar, and an upper-crust dress code that keeps sandal-wearing gladiators in the arena where they belong. The Dream Nightclub proffers state-of-the-art dance space with a luminous bar, kaleidoscopic light show, and scorching music video projections. Venerate the sun gods of summer as you bask in the tiki torch glow of Coconut Joe’s outdoor deck and chow down on goodies from the grill. Your VIP entrance rushes you to the ruckus with expedited entry and covers two slices of toasty pizza and two drinks from standard domestic bottles and well liquor.
