"Your room or my room? Oh yeah, I forgot my parents are here too."

The Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas has made no effort to hide its love for the teen crushes of the day from Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, The Jonas Brothers and our fave, today's resident heartbreaker, Justin Bieber.

But merely inviting the latest teen dream to visit and perform a concert while selling teen-themed packages to guests wasn't enough for Atlantis. So they've gone and created an $11 million nightclub especially for teens. And it's called, Crush.

Designed by renowned architect and interior designer, Jeffrey Beers, the 14,000 square-foot mod-inspired space boasts; an interactive Internet Lounge complete with multi-touch computers and surface tables with photo editing and publishing interfaced to Facebook; a Gaming Stadium boasting a 22-foot floor-to-ceiling Gaming Tree and private cabanas stocked with state-of-the-art technology including the newly launched Microsoft flagship motion sensor product Kinect for Xbox 360; and a 1,500 square-foot Dance Club complete with multi-purpose video walls, performance stage, VIP sections and doormen all worthy of paparazzi.

Coming to a Vegas dance floor in 2016.

Another perk sure to impress the teen who needs to impress other teens? Everyone will receive a personalized membership card. Personally, we're a little jealous that the teens will have access to 20 Apple iPads stocked with fun apps and games like Angry Birds and musics playlists.

As for the drinks, well, none of these are alcoholic but Crush will serve some mocktails like a Mango Margarita made from agave nectar, mango, lime and sprite and an Almond Joy comprised of coconut, almond, chocolate and cream with a chocolate pretzel floater.

Since we've attended more than a few teen dances in our day, we know what sort of naughty mischief kids can get into at these sort of gatherings. And that was just back when we had the old rec hall to use. Can you imagine what kids will try to do in a nightclub?

Perhaps anticipating the worst, Atlantis has put together a Crush Code of Conduct that forbids backpacks, bags, large purses, lighters, matches and video cameras from entering the club. They also ask that teens refrain from:

any PDA (public display of affection) which includes: sexually implicit dancing, kissing, groping and lap sitting.

The Atlantis also bans any outside food or beverage from entering the club. We think they ought to ban hotel toiletry bottles as well. (That was our, er our friends' way, of sneaking "special drinks" into the dance.)

Teens can get into Crush for $25 per person from 5:30PM – 1AM. (Do kids not have curfews these days???) But they must be a registered hotel guest. And they must be an actual teen to get in here as the ages allowed are 13-17. No tweens allowed! You guys can stick it out at Club Rush, a "no adults" setting that's open to 9 to 13-year-olds. Suckers.
