Awesome Architecture

Really enjoyed visiting this place & looking at the architecture - nice shops here as well. A great example of the Shore of yesteryear. I recommend a visit!

I see Bruce here every January at the Light of Day benefit show. Not a bad seat in the house. Much better now that they've opened a bar in the concourse.

Went here for a concert- awesome scenery and things to do before the show. Had purchased tickets online and was thrilled when the girl working the box office offered us front row tickets when we exchanged our original tickers from the previous venue. all around great!!

Alot of interesting crafts, but not as much as we hoped and it was all very high priced. Was a windy cold day but it was nice inside there . Something to do on a cooler day.

Still very cool that this still stands in Asbury, one of the few thins left from my younger days. They renovated the Paramount inside yrs ago and it's like the old days - Saw Yellow Submarine there in 60's. Still good for shows in both venues.

This is my first review for this place but I have been here several times...then put money into this place and it shows the acoustics in here when you see an event or a performer you just can't beat it...and the location is fabulous when you're done you walk right out to the beach how much better can it get

Terra-Cotta Decals of Whales, wonderful atrium/lobby to get out of blazing sun and have some real brew at cafe. Chance to sample how 1920s Movie Palaces did the beach back when moms wore corsets and Edwardian gauzy gowns, huge hats tied down over their Katherine Hepburn upswept hair-does, while their flapper daughters were hiding bootleg liquor in flasks attached to...
