The Chelsea 111 South Chelsea Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ
Teplitzky’s is a late-night diner located on the ground floor of the Chelsea Hotel in Atlantic City. The restaurant is reminiscent of a 1960s-era coffee shop with terrazzo floors, redwood walls, cork ceiling, and a bar with cantilevered stools. A rear cocktail lounge opens up to the pool area and features decorative masonry walls around the booths.
The Brown Room is a stylish lounge occupying the same spot as Congress Hall’s first legal post-Prohibition cocktail bar. Considered "Cape May's Living Room", the space features comfortable leather, a cozy fire and the gentle buzz of friendly conversation.” It’s 1930s-inspired design with its famous zebra skin carpet, large palms, magnificent artwork and iconic fireplace with its tropical birds, and excellent libations make it the hub of Congress Hall.
Down in the basement of Congress Hall you’ll find a late night music club that has a distinctly urban atmosphere that feels worlds away from the quaintness of Victorian Cape May. Built right into the foundation of the building, the original boiler pit for Congress Hall sits right next to the stage. The faceplate of that boiler is displayed on the back wall of the club.
It’s a totally one-of-a-kind vibe with exposed brick walls, brushed steel bar and tables and an industrial aesthetic that that give it the feel of a big-city establishment. All this attracts a great mix of guests from all the Cape Resorts hotels as well as lots of Jersey shore locals. You’ll enjoy a lively crowd, great bands like The Dane Anthony Band and the Billy D. Light Trio and even better martinis and cosmopolitans. If you missed dinner, be sure to order from a fun menu of tavern favorites all served with some innovative twists.
