Be there close to when the doors open at 8, grab a number and wait to start a new family tradition.

New in 2018, this place is a great year-round stop for a beer and a "nicer" dinner. Don't let 'Brew Pub' fool you - it is upscale and a great stop.

The only beach bar in Avalon, hit the 78th street beach for the day (Stone Harbor and Avalon beach tags can be used reciprocally) and then head here for some live music and a cool drink. Food options are limited and a little pricey out back but drinks and atmosphere are fantastic.
