This is a stunning building. I visited on a very cold February morning and the shops/cafes inside were only just coming to life. The building is as attractive inside, as out. Originally brought to my attention, by Kevin Smith, in Dogma. Well worth a visit

Nice renovations
Aug 2019
I came here decades ago and the building was very run down. It looks in much better shape now. Nothing exciting, just a glimpse into the past of what the area looked like 70 + years ago. The shops seemed to mostly stock local craft peoples wares, a bit too expensive for us. The restrooms were very clean. What I loved was being able to peak into the theater and think of all the local music that had played there. Nice, but I wouldn't revisit.

Kitschy shops and restaurants

If you are walking on the boardwalk, you will walk through this open area. There are several restaurants to choose from and a couple shops. There is absolutely no reason to go out of your way to stop at this destination. There is street parking for a fee.

Nice venue
Aug 2019
First time visiting this theatre and must say it is a wonderful building. Visited for a concert and while the ambience was great the sound system for the concert was not impressive.

All around great spot

Not Worth the Time Except.....
Jul 2019 • Friends
I realize that the intent is eventually to restore this grand old structure. From the outside it appears that some work has begun, but the inside is grimy, full of biting green NJ flies, mosquitoes and it's nearly as hot inside as the 100 degree outside. Shops are usual shore fare as you enter, albeit not as clean and the pop-ups in the convention arena itself are nothing to write home about with one exception: Kodada...a straight from the designer, made in America high-end line of contemporary leather handbags. The designer, Crystal Kodada, warmly greeted potential customers and exudes an energy not common in settings like this. Her work is meticulous and the components of her bags are fine leather and findings. A prototype "back-bag" was on display and I did something I have never done....ordered it prior to actual production and before it's even available on her website. You can skip the Convention Center until they invest some more $$$ in restoring it and the shops within, but definitely look up this designer.

Off-the-chart venue for a wedding reception.
Jun 2019 • Couples
This is not your "typical" place to hold a wedding reception. It has no kitchen for your caterer to use nor a bar for your guests. It is a classic concert hall of the Jersey Shore and absolutely reeks of genuine music, summer nights with your significant other on the boardwalk, and heartfelt local music from the likes of The Boss. My niece and her husband are music lovers and intensely patriotic of their New Jersey roots. Her parents went all-out to discover a way to rent this theater for a Friday evening wedding reception....and succeeded. They had an absolutely killer band, brought in a company to run a bar, and a caterer with mobile cooking facilities. The place is old, but it rocks the socks off any venue half its age or less. This is an EXPERIENCE location. You truly do not feel the "Jersey Shore" till you visit here AND the Stone Pony.

League of it's own.

While the entire building needs a much deserved rehab. It is a place of magic. No other place like it anywhere. Every one should visit for a show. Also can not get over how you are treated by theater staff. Only thing to make it better would be parking.

Spacious venue
May 2019 • Business
I enjoy gathering here for TEdx and NJ vegfest events. The venue is very spacious however the bathrooms could improve by adding stalls...but wait, I found the single womens stall on the first floor.

See you again soon
