Asbury Park Boardwalk

The Asbury Park Boardwalk is located in the heart of the Jersey Shore, a small seaside city on the New Jersey coast. It’s known for its sandy shore and beachfront boardwalk lined with shops, arcades and cafes.  Convention Hall, along with the adjacent Paramount Theatre and the Grand Arcade connecting the two, is one of the most majestic landmarks on the Jersey Shore. Over the years, this historic entertainment venue has hosted legendary performances by Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, and the Rolling Stones, just to name a few. The Convention Hall extends over the beach and boasts a state-of-the-art stage area, spacious arena floor and a capacity of up to 3,600 guests.


The Fifth Avenue Pavilion is an historic and iconic destination unique to the Asbury waterfront, dating
back to the early 1900’s. Anchored by an expanding restaurant and bar lineup, plus year-round
entertainment, this pavilion preserves and exudes classic boardwalk charm with an upgraded
aesthetic and experience. Retail on the boardwalk and Ocean Avenue is a mix of local and regional
specialty shops with beach lifestyle flare, accompanied by a seasonal specialty F&B offering. Most
dramatically, 7,500 square feet of new rooftop bar/restaurant space adjacent to the former roof-top
band shell. The band shell is being re-created to once again host live performances in a thrilling,
architecturally significant, oceanside atmosphere. The band shell will include a stage, 212 built-in
seats, a 2,500 dance floor/flexible space that can be utilized to accommodate a broad range of
entertainment & event programming with dedicated restroom facilities – all of this with a spectacular
ocean & 270 degree panoramic view of both Eastern and Western horizons guaranteeing
spectacular sunrise and sunset backdrops.
