Venue Info

Considered one of the greatest rock venues of all time by the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, this unsuspecting dive in Asbury Park is best known as the place where Springsteen and Bon Jovi launched their careers. It's since become a must-stop institution for acts travelling through. It's steps from the boardwalk to add an extra Jersey vibe to the proceedings. While primarily known as a concert venue, it has a sizable bar in front of a wall of guitars, where you can order a beer and nod your head to whatever local or cover band is playing that night, though huge national acts also drop in as well.
