While visiting Asbury Park, NJ during Labor Day weekend, we had the pleasure of stumbling across Yappy Hour at the Wonder Bar on Ocean Avenue, where dogs and their humans can engage in outdoor playtime (complete with doggy swimming pools) with food and beverage service on the expansive, fenced-in back patio. What a treat! Kudos to owner Debbie for bringing... More

Classic sea shore bar in along the beach in Asbury, right across the street from Convention Hall. Some great music to be had in here (from the New Mastersounds from England to the jamgrass band Infamous Stringdusters and all points in between). John Eddie still plays there regularly and one can expect Joe Grushecky to still have a date there... More

Drove 3 hours to see Michael Monroe and Hardcore Superstar here. It was easy to find and right near the boardwalk. The bar service was great and it was a great venue to see the bands up close and personal. No complaints, would def go again if the need arose.

Old beach bar. Worth it to stop by for a beer and some history. Great vibe. Good bartenders. Fair bar bites. Decent place to hang with friends.

The food is okay. The atmosphere is the reason to come here. As much as I enjoy heading out for a drink on my day off, I always feel bad to leave my doggies home...No more!! Yappy Hour, bring the dogs with you!!

Wonder bar is a fun place to people (and dog) watch. Their yappy hour is a fun time and being able to hang out with your dog in a public spot and drinking is a great combo!

This is a really fun bar with two great outside seating areas. During the day, there were a lot of people with dogs so great place to bring your pup. Drink prices are reasonable but bartenders were a little slow.

We decided to get tickets for the Gary US Bonds show. We got there when the place opened at 7:00PM to insure that we could get seats at the bar. While we were waiting on line, there was "Yappy Hour" taking place in their outdoor patio. People and their dogs seemed to be having a great time.We sat for awhile... More

It was great to take our dog to the bar with us! Friday night is small dog night but they still let our 65 lb husky mix in ("as long as she stayed on her best behavior"). We worried that it would be stressful but was a very chill environment. My favorite place in Asbury Park!
