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.

The location is on the boardwalk, second floor with great view of ocean. Large outdoor space with cushioned seating areas as well as inside seating. We tried 3 appetizers. The ahi seared tuna was fabulous. The sirachi chicken wraps was tasty but very spicy. The red pepper hummus as very good. Try the ahi tuna - you wont be disappointed!!

This wonderful lounge draws a classy but unpretentious crowd and always has a great vibe. The space is gorgeous - inside you'll find couches to sprawl on beside picture windows overlooking the boardwalk and ocean; there is also very cozy seating around the huge fireplace. The open air deck offers couch seating or counter style barstools overlooking the beach. Friendly... More

Beautiful place with a view on the beach, classy and fun crowd. I never get tired of this place. Service is always good and drinks are creative and different - try anything infused. This is not a typical bar so if you are looking for a Bud Light, this is not your place. It is an elegant place to enjoy... More

Not worth the trec up the stairs. View is great, but the prices are through the roof. It great if you drink before you getr there, and only need a few drinks, because thats all you can afford!

We were there for a private party - an afternoon wedding. What s great place! My first time and I'll be going back for dinner. The catered wedding dinner was tapas style the entire time and I loved it! delicious and we served wherever we stood. Get way to socialize and move around the room. Great indoor & outdoor space....
