Atlantic City Beach Bars


Tired of the same old watering hole? It seems like no matter where you go for a drink these days, you’re in for a cramped, dimly-lit and loud night that becomes an evening you drink to forget rather than one you’ll always remember. Fortunately, Atlantic City has found a way to revamp the bar-going experience. What’s our secret?

Just add water, air and sand.

Huh? We admit that it doesn’t sound like the greatest cocktail, but if you think outside the bar, you’ll see what we mean. Atlantic City beach bars offer open-air experiences infused with sandy floors, sea breezes and ocean views for unforgettable nights out.

Where can you find these unique beach bars in Atlantic City? Check out the full list below.

The laid-back Worship Surf Bar at Showboat Casino bills itself as the “only surf bar in Atlantic City,” offering easy beach and boardwalk access and great music from the adjacent House of Blues.

Bally’s Bikini Beach Bar serves up more than just an ocean-air atmosphere – try one of the refreshing specialty drinks and enjoy a new genre of live music every night, from reggae to rock and roll.
