At Donovan’s Reef, live music fills the ocean air with an awesome line-up of musicians.  Feel the rhythm in the sand at our beachfront summer stage.  Dance the night away outside on the deck or catch the beat of the band inside at the bar. There's something for everyone at Donovan's Reef Beach Bar, so join the crowd and sing along, or just hang out and jam to the bands!

Hit the Beach!

Join us for a day of fun on our private lifeguarded beach and enjoy all that Donovan's Reef Beach Bar has to offer.  It's a cool and casual scene, so sit back and catch some sun, or jump in the ocean and catch the waves.  Join your friends for lunch on the deck, or join the crowd down on the beach. There's music in the ocean air, so grab your beach chair and your towel, but most of all grab a drink, because Donovan's Reef is one of the only bars on the Jersey Shore that serves cocktails on the sand!
