Lobster roll, oysters, craft beers, delectable wine, ocean view, funky clothing stores, a fun, happy vibe, and more will you find in Convention Hall. Couldn't find a better place on a hot summer's day. Run, don't walk to spend some time enjoying life on this little slice of paradise known as the Asbury Park boardwalk.

This trip to the beach was during the holiday weekend. Not a recommended time to go. But there are big changes coming to asbury so I do recommend you getting there and see the changes taking place. New dining options and shops avail.

We walked around and we like this place, plus I found a place to buy a great cappuccino & pastry. Hope the access to the beach in this area become free of charge

Did not attend a show at The Paramount but did enjoy the shopping inside. Purchased a lot of Asbury Park souvenirs. The stand selling fruit pops was nice, Popsicles were refreshing. Such a beautiful building!

Unique shops as well as eateries. Yes the building is dilapidated but I think it added to the experience. Definitely worth a walk through while on the Boardwalk.

The Paramount Theater & Convention Hall is located on the boardwalk and has several shops. It looks like it is in need of some TLC but it is worth your while to pop into some of the shops as they have a unique selection.

This arcade is worth a visit just for the coffee stand. Coffee is oddly hard to come by on the Boardwalk (maybe it's not that odd come to think of it). But then, the presence of both the Paramount Theatre and the convention center add additional interest. You can get a quick sense of the bands playing all over Asbury... More

This is a landmark building and the developers are not taking care of it. Every year more of it fades a way. The historic lanterns on top of the building are nearly all gone. The historic copper plates on the side of the Convention Hall were taken down for inspection and have gone missing. The developer is to replace them... More

Sometimes we are just walking through while exercising on the boards or stop to browse the shops, which are unique and have fun Asbury Park memorabilia. Their are two bars on each end, one has indoor as well as outdoor seating and one is outdoor (covered) only. Beautiful Ocean views and salty air!
