I went to this tiny venue to see the Burlesque group, Suicide Girls. It was neat to see all of the singed guitars of yesteryear on display. Multiple bars and a hidden Bubbakoos location in the back. The stage was easy to see from multiple...More

If you have the opportunity to see a concert here, jump at the chance. It is a great venue, you can get close and personal with the band and the acoustics are pretty good.

The light effects and sound system in this venue are great. The staff is very nice and I feel that they were very accommodating. We came to this venue to see Kane Brown and we were not disappointed by anything other than the freezing temperatures...More

As big Bruce fans for over 40 years we'd read and heard a lot about this venue. Particularly it's importance to the music scene in the Asbury Park area We were certainly not disappointed and everything about the place lived up to our expectations. There...More

The Stone Pony is rich in history but little else in the way of creature comforts...depending on the crowd size you may be shoulder to shoulder with some very sweaty folks and it gets really really warm, so keep that in mind when choosing your...More

Awful experience Friday night at the Stone Pony. I was turned away after being told I was drunk. Was stone cold sober. What a waste of money and time. If you're going to overbook an event and then make up stories to refuse entry, you...More

Pros: Small enough venue to feel like it was a personal concert. Older crowd maybe because it was Echo and the Bunnymen, but everyone was so friendly! Drinks are potent so pace yourselves. Cons: Porto potties aren't the cleanest.

The summer stage as far as I know does not allow Food or chairs. Parking is tight in Asbury but doable ... there is always a charge for parking . You can actually hear the music from across the street on the boardwalk for... More
