First Look at Max Fish Beach Bar in Asbury Park

Posted on: May 16th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Word leaked last week that Uli Rimkus was opening a summer outpost of her iconic Max Fish bar at Asbury Park on the Jersey Shore. The temporary watering hole – Max Fish Beach Bar – is now open on weekends, but daily post-Memorial Day. Version 2.0 is reportedly made to “look like Max Fish but beachy, with blues, greens and clouds.” Pool tables are replaced with Skee-Ball, decidedly less punk rock.

Movin’ on Up headed to the shore for an early look at the spot, and included some history of the place it’s now calling home. The majestic Convention Hall on the boardwalk, which was designed by Warren & Wetmore, the dudes behind Grand Central Station.
