— WATERMARK —
Asbury Park, NJ, USA
Location: 800 Ocean Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ 07712
Hovering above the famous Asbury Park Boardwalk and commanding sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, Watermark occupies 8,000 square feet of interior/exterior space on the second floor of the First Avenue Pavilion. Your experience can range from a cosy winter’s night in the loveseats in front of the fire – to standing room only at the bar on a Saturday night; from summer cocktails under the moon and stars on the outside deck – to DARK 'N STORMY® cocktails with a view on a Sunday afternoon.
Taking a culinary approach to the art of the cocktail, the drink menus are expertly crafted by talented mixologists and vary with the seasons and availability of ingredients. Recipes are followed faithfully to ensure consistency and quality.
Russell Lewis is the owner. He originally was looking to open a speak easy type craft cocktail bar, much like some of the places he drank at back in New York where he is from. When Russell first saw the beach front property that would become Watermark, he fell in love and morphed his dream for a speak easy into a larger, more commercial scale.
The result? An indoor and outdoor bar complex with picture perfect views of the Atlantic, and the best cocktails you will drink anywhere on the Jersey Shore. “We serve handcrafted cocktails in a commercial setting” says owner Russell Lewis.
