Great drinks and ocean views!

Trendy restaurant and bar with good service and excellent food. The bar has great ocean views and view of the Stone Pony summer stage.

We also had an app with our cocktails. There are bar stools along the railing. Inside they have couch like seating. If you... More

Great place to go with your date or friends. I like the fact the it has an outdoors sitting and indoors which it has an incredible view to the ocean. I consider it a modern American cuisine with some infusions . The food is great and awesome cocktails

The place is really nice...great cocktails but the music was definitely fist pumping. Great place to start the night and then head over to Porta for dancing.

Right on the beach and diagonally across from the Stone Pony, this is a hot venue to enjoy an evening with a nice drink and delicious tapas. Very shabby chic atmosphere. Sit inside viewing the ocean in front of the fireplace or outside on the veranda listening to the concert from across the street. All age groups were present....we enjoyed... More

This place was one of the more upscale places I went when visiting Asbury Park. It has a lounge like feel inside with all white couches and chairs accompanied by an awesome DJ who was playing amazing old school 90’s songs. Outside they have plenty of seating as well and a great view of the ocean. Only downside is everyone... More

Very cool place to stop for drinks. Bartenders look bada.., being all tatted up, yet are really very sweet. They take their mixology serious here and you can taste it! Biggest problem was deciding what to have from their extensive drink menu, I wanted to try so many, I will be back to try more!

This place is no longer a neighborhood gem - it's busy all the time now. The indoor space is great with the best view of the beach around. The outdoor space is almost perfect. Club-like environment, always a scene, and hopping. Music is awesome and brilliantly programmed. Drinks are really wide-ranging. The cocktail menu needs 10 or more minutes to... More

You will not find a better place on the beach to enjoy drinks with a fabulous view. Drinks are good (strong) and service is fine. Atmosphere can't be beat.
