Nice venue for the annual Beerfest. The space is great as it is large enough to not create traffic jams but not too large where it is a 10 minute hike to get from one end to another. There was an abundance of different craft breweries and beer to try. Food was great as well and ranged from giant smoked... More

I enjoyed my visit to the Paramount Theater for a concert. The old theater retains its charm and picturesque walls and ceiling decorations. The stage is framed with a beautiful ornate arch. The sound was excellent and we enjoyed it while sitting in the balcony

We visited here during the weekend in December when they have a mini craft fair inside. Great for holiday shopping in a Jersey Shore landmark. Also great for grabbing a coffee or other hot drink. Definitely worth a visit when in Asbury whether summer or winter.

It's and iconic venue and if you can appreciate historic theaters that have maintained their charm, it is well worth seeing this venue. The theater is about the size you would... More

Walk the boards on a Sunday morning and get coffee or lunch in the convention center. Small shops with great gifts, good food, and don't forget to look up at the architecture surrounding you !!,

One time beach beauty now reduced to a crumbling relic . Yes you can eat there , drink there buy useless stuff there & even get a decent iced coffee, however the current guardian just makes patchwork fixes to run events here 52 weeks a year. Come visit take your iconic picture & maybe see a rockstar!

We took a stroll in here while in Asbury Park. Nice little shops as well as a theatre. Also has a nice restaurant that has a bar that you can hang out on the side beach.
