New Tiki Bar Opens in Belmar Today
Attention fellow lushes: we have a new place to drink in Belmar!
This new bar isn't like any other in town though.
9th Ave. Pier is located at the beautiful Belmar Marina and is set to open its doors for the first time at 4 p.m. today. It is the only tiki bar in Belmar, and is expected to be open daily at 11:30 a.m. from April to October.
It will feature a raw bar and brick oven pizza, among other eats.
To ease local residents' concerns, the bar will only play music until 11 p.m. Weekday alcohol sales will end at midnight, extending to 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
The bar is owned by Chefs International, which also owns Jack Baker's Lobster Shanty, Moore's Tavern, Patio Bar, and several other area restaurants.
Belmar Marina is one of my favorite places at the Jersey Shore - I used to go there to draw - and I'm glad to see there will be a cool place to take in the view! They are also planning to build a miniature golf course there by the end of the summer. It should be very cool when it's all finished!
