Enjoy the views of the Atlantic Ocean and inhale the fresh salty sea air while imbibing on cocktails at the ultimate Jersey Shore beach bar, the Tiki Bar at Driftwood, The newly renovated and fully-enclosed Tiki Bar is open on weekends: Friday at 5 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 12 noon with a full service bar and complimentary buffet.
The renovation included winterized interior with radiant warm heaters, a beautiful granite bar, mahogany flooring and fold-out Thermo-pane windows that offer panoramic views of the ocean. While sipping on drinks, patrons can watch their favorite sports on a half dozen, big-screen HD TVs.
After Hurricane Sandy, extensive renovations began to what was the original seasonal Tiki Bar. The project was undertaken by the Stavola family, owners of the private Driftwood Cabana Club since 1957. This is the first time that Tiki Bar will be open to the public. Plans are currently underway for live entertainment and a tavern menu.
The Tiki Bar is available for private parties for up to 70 guests during the cooler months and 150 during the warmer seasons when use of the expansive deck is available. However when the beach club is in-season (May-September) access to the bar will be for members only.
Now is the time to enjoy the beach during the off-season when the ocean and beach are all yours, strikingly beautiful and most impressive. Tiki Bar at Driftwood Cabana Club, 1485 Ocean Avenue, Sea Bright; 732.842.0297.
