He is there on weekends, which is the only time I have gone, There is a large dance floor and four bars when you want to take a break from dancing.... More

I have lived in Margate my whole life and have only started going here the last few years. I had always grown up thinking it was a tourist only spot. My Bad!!! It remains true to the feel of the old time Jersey shore, which is lost a bit in Margate with all the upscale eateries etc. Legendary DJ and... More

Had a fun time at jerry Blavatsky memories! Gets pretty crowded later at night. Dance floor is t very big. But there are four bars inside so you are never without a drink if you want one. Guess that's the point! But worth the 10.00 cover.

The Geator has to be the friendliest DJ's ever. He greets practically everyone who enters and tries to ensure a good time for all. Lots of personality and Memories is well appointed inside. Bartenders are attentive and the music is, of course, the best!

Really enjoy the music and dance floor! The drinks and bar food were great, but the waitress was not very pleasant.

Jerry Blavat is a Philly legend and to go dancing with him as the DJ was great. He was very gracious and it was a really fun night. He spins a great combo of dancing music. It was crowed and had a great dance floor.

We went onSaturday night to dance and it was packed. Good music, but couldn't get a drink, so we left. We will have to try again on a different night. Stay tuned.....

Fun place, good music, Jerry Blavatt spinning discs. $10 cover charge seems a bit much, but when you're in the mood to dance you will pay it!

I am a 24 year old female with a 66 year old father. He is a big fan of Jerry Blavat and listens to him on the radio almost daily. Dad originally took me to memories last year and I remember it being an OK experience. The second year....we stuck around a little longer. We went on a Friday night... More
