I surveyed a random group of 21-25 year old New Jersey residents and asked what their favorite bar was, and below are the results.
33% answered Bar Anticipation in Belmar
33% answered Johnny Macs in Asbury Park
8.3% answered Barcade in Jersey City
8.3% answered Jenks in Point Pleasant
8.3% answered Djais in Belmar
8.3% answered Asbury Ale House in Asbury Park
It is no surprise that Bar A and Johnny Macs were tied for first place. Both are especially popular in the summer because the offer large outdoor spaces. And besides Barcade, all of the bars mentioned are down the shore.
Be sure to check out all of these spots and let me know what you think!
