One of my favorite places to go. They have the best drinks (their fresh muddled strawberry mohijtos are to die for). It's right along the shore and they have floor to ceilings windows that overlook the ocean. It's really something to see. In the summer, they have a outside deck that is open. The food is very expensive but just... More

The indoor and outdoor view doesn't get any better. Right on the boardwalk in Asbury Park NJ. Sit inside on the comfy hip couches or outside overlooking the ocean and boardwalk while drinking some of the best cocktails around. You can even have your wedding here, vows and the party!!! The owner pays attention to every detail at The Watermark... More

What a wonderful evening! We had our wedding celebration at the Watermark in Asbury Park NJ on Friday September 19, 2014. The proprietor Russell Lewis is a class act. He and his staff made our event perfect: From the top shelf signature cocktails, craft beer, wine, plentiful and delicious food to the stunningly beautiful, upscale venue directly on the boardwalk...

Decor was fantastic, It is a fairly large place and it does get packed on the latter part of night and during busy season. Very woody, cabin like feel w/ modernity. Birch tree poles and warm fire place to one end and large bra with wood rings backdrop on the bar surface. Then there is a center area with lots... More

My brother held a marriage celebration here and it was a perfect venue for 100 or so people. Upper level over looking the ocean with a nice bar and cozy lounge chairs for socializing in comfort. Enough room for a band. Inside was plenty of space for dancing and hors d'oeuvres were plentiful and although I didn't eat much, everyone... More

I recently spent an afternoon here for a wedding party. The staff were friendly and the whole atmosphere was really relaxing and fun. We had the whole place to ourselves which was awesome. Our families were able to just hang out, dance, and enjoy the view. I was very impressed with the food and drinks also. Overall it was a... More

Beautiful views from the second story and average priced drinks. Did not eat here but all the food going by looked wonderful. Service was slow and bar tenders seemed uninterested

Had a nice time here to close out the night. Surprised to see Don Julio 1942 which isn't commonly available. That's probably why it was over-poured and spilled, lol. The staffing was very cool. In any event it has a great view of the beach and is a nice chill spot.

This lounge style bar is beautiful, with the bonus of amazing nj ocean views. I especially love that they serve custom drinks, many very fresh with all natural flavors. Their drinks and atmosphere stand above the rest. Wonderful date place thoo. Try to find a cozy couch, and enjoy!

Across from the Empress Hotel this is a lovely 2nd floor cocktail lounge and was always busy but easy to get a seat. There are great views (ocean and pretty people) and their signature cocktails were lovely. A little pricey but not to crazy and well worth it. Nice group working there as well.
