I really like Watermark in the summer with the outdoor seating. In the fall it's really nice inside with the lighting, the fireplace, and seating. They have a great drink selection: beer, wine, infused liquors, mixed drinks, etc. My only complaint would be that the music gets really loud at a certain time, say after 10 pm. You could not...

I stopped for some drinks and Ioved the warm ambiance. Mixed crowd as far as age so no one feels uncomfortable. Very laid back atmosphere. Nice modern decor with big comfy couches and a very cool fire place.

My wife and I are no spring chickens and when we first visited I was a little apprehensive that our age group was not the crowd welcomed at this fantastic bar. Was I wrong! All of the servers were warm, genuine and on the mark with suggestions and service. The view, the music, the laid-back attitude. Wow. Don't go in... More

Known for its selection of cocktails. Nice, comfortable lounge areas with couches, sectionals, etc. Not a place for dinner but can get bar bites.

First, the location is superb. Truly the best in all of Asbury Park.The views through the enormous windows of the ocean are unobstructed . There are both indoor and outdoor spaces (and bars) so the weather is never a factor. In the cooler weather you can sit by the indoor fireplace and stare out at the magnificent view while enjoying...

Nothing like the location and view. Draws a high energy crowd with top notch drinks and delicious appetizers and munchies.

But Asbury needs to get... More

Been going here for many years. Relaxing atmosphere, great drinks, great view! A must if you are in Asbury. Fall is great when the fireplace is going, too.

This place was recommended by multiple people as one of the places we needed to try while in Asbury. Unfortunately, although their website clearly states open until 12:00 am, and there were people at the bar out and inside, doors were locked at 10:20 pm tonight, Thursday, September 1st. When we called to find out what was going on, the... More
