I finally had a chance to go inside The Asbury Hotel...and it's incredible!

If you haven't had a chance to visit yet, then take a look at some of my photos.

I had a chance to meet some friends of mine there one evening recently, and we enjoyed drinks and live entertainment in the lobby and on the rooftop deck.

What an incredible atmosphere and ocean view. We were there on a foggy night, so you won't see any photos of the ocean, but trust me that it is amazing. The lighting is so beautiful in the evening...but in the daytime it is spectacular, too, because of all the windows.

You do NOT have to be staying in a room at this gorgeous hotel in order to go there for drinks in the lobby or on the rooftop...although obviously you have to be 21 and over.

They have a great coffee bar, too, if you're not going there for alcohol : )
