What to wear

Help! What to wear in A.C, for a Friday night at The Homestead for dinner and The Gypsy bar to see a band.

From what I’ve noticed, I don’t think its much worry what to wear—unless you are trying to attract . . . . ?. The same clothing you would wear in any other public part of the casino is normally acceptable. How much you have in your wallet or purse might be a consideration. Have a good time. :-)

I agree. I do not think it really matters.

4. Re: What to wear

When I visit AC I prefer to have casual clothes for walking on the Boardwalk, and something nicer for casinos/dinner. I don't wear a suit and tie, but a nice pair of shoes, collared shirt, etc.

You'll always find people who put little effort into their appearance. Unfortunately, it is pretty commonplace in A.C.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I just didn't want to feel out of place. We are going with a group and I have never been to AC before. Didn't know if we had to "dress up" but it sounds like casual is ok.

Dress to your comfort. Like others I like to dress up a little when I go to places like the Homestead. (ie shoes, dress shirt)

Most people don’t dress too fancy in AC because that can be like putting a target on your back. I’ve seen some you would never guess were “whales”—looked like they did just come off a fishing boat!

FWIW, Old Homestead's dress code is business casual. I've never seen it enforced, but I also don't see people not dressed inappropriately.

I just want to add that SOME of the younger crowd--especially at Borgata-- dress BEAUTIFULLY. I used to love sitting at the Metropolitan at a "ring side" seat to watch the fashion parade.

You will see the gamut -- REALLY! -- so just wear what you feel you look good in. And just as a side note (JMHO), I will be very happy to see the end of "faux gangsta" look for men which is just about the most unattractive look men have ever embraced, JMHOJMHOJMHOJMHO.

Have a wonderful AC experience!
