So you want to spend your Friday night on the beach, watching the sunset and enjoying live music at a Somers Point Beach Concert — this Friday, FYI, it’s The Deck Band — and aren’t sure how to end the night? We recommend heading to any of these seven places for some post-concert festivities.
1 The Crab Trap. If you’re looking for a classy cocktail and a delicious dinner, head to The Crab Trap, where there’s often live music and dancing. If you’re looking to extend your beachside vibes with a view of the bay, head out back to Crabby Jack’s, The Crab Trap’s casual outdoor bar. Toast with a bayside beverage and kick back to live tunes. Located at 2 Broadway in Somers Point. Go to CrabbyJacks.com for more information.
2 The Anchorage. To satisfy the seafood cravings brought on by the salt air, head to The Anchorage for their buffalo shrimp (a personal fave), ice cold beers and a Friday night DJ. Located at 823 Bay Ave. in Somers Point. Go to AnchorageTavernRestaurant.com for more.
3 Josie Kelly’s Public House. The (somewhat) new kid on the block, Josie Kelly’s is bringing Irish back. Get there on Fridays for music from Irish Balladeers Tom Brett and Bill Felix and a frothy Guinness. Located at 908 Shore Road in Somers Point. Go to JosieKellys.com for more information.
4 Charlie’s Bar. Want good food and good drinks? Head to Charlie’s for what are arguably the world’s best wings and tenders, and wash ‘em down with an Orange Crush. Located at 800 Shore Road in Somers Point. Go to CharliesBar.com for more.
5 Gregory’s. Looking for a classic? Head to Gregory’s, a family-owned bar beloved by locals and tourists alike. This Friday there’s a HEROtini Backyard Bash, where they are helping to bring awareness to the HERO Foundation with a summer mocktail called the “Safe-Tea Driver” as well as music from The Liberi. Located at 900 Shore Road in Somers Point. Go to GregorysRestaurantandBar.LetsEat.at for more information.
6 Clancy’s by the Bay. If you want to get on the dance floor, head to Clancy’s, where cocktails flow while The Jump Off plays. Try a cucumber martini and ease yourself into the weekend. Located at 101 E. Maryland Ave. in Somers Point. Go to Clancy’s by the Bay on Facebook.
7 Caroline’s by the Bay. Right by the Longport Bridge, Caroline’s is known for live music every day of the week. Get there after the beach concert for live music from Steve Moore & M.I.A. and some icy cold drafts. Located at Bay Avenue and Longport Boulevard in Somers Point. Go to CarolinesBytheBay.com.
