Former Atlantic City, New Jersey swingers club to become a restaurant

An Atlantic City building that once served as a swingers club is being transformed into the second location of a popular Philadelphia restaurant.

I have never been to the Role Play Lounge on Atlantic Avenue in Atlantic City. If we’re being honest, I would have told you it was an urban legend until now.

But yes, it was legit. It’s where couples interested in expanding their, uh, horizons would go in the 2010s to hang out, dance, and hopefully get dirty. Boy, IF THESE WALLS CAN TALK.

That was then, and role-playing is a distant memory. The former swinger spot, between S. Boston Ave. and S. Providence Ave. near Knife & Fork Inn, does a 180. In early 2023, it would become Atlantic City’s new Good Dog Philadelphia restaurant.

Good dog in the city center (near 15th and Locust) is primarily a burger and beer restaurant and a cool place to watch sports. But owners David Garry and Heather Gleason-Garry have other plans for their Jersey Shore location. Its menu will focus on seafood, according to

So how do the Garrys, who recently made AC their permanent home, feel about taking over such a salacious establishment?

David Garry has a good sense of humor about it, telling“The sex swings were gone by the time we walked around the building.”

He adds, “We could just cover our kids’ ears when we talk about it.”

Good Dog Atlantic City will see the light of day with the help of New Jersey developer Pat Fasano, who helped reinvigorate Asbury Park and is looking to do the same for the casino town. It is planning a March 2023 opening, according to Lisa Johnson Communications.

Not only will it welcome two-legged friends with delicious food and a wide selection of drinks, but your four-legged friends would also be invited to Good Dog’s outdoor area, treated with freshly filled water bowls and fresh air for your puppies.
