Page 41 of 43 Mid-Atlantic Meeting Guide 42 A s b u r y P a r k , N e w J e r s e y Asbury Park, New Jersey The small New Jersey shore city of Asbury Park is Bruce Springsteen's hometown — his 1973 debut album is titled "Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J." — and The Boss has been known to surprise locals with impromp- tu concerts. Asbury Park is enjoying an ongoing Renaissance as fixtures in the beach town are renovated and revital- ized. The hip 110-room Asbury Hotel opened last sum- mer in the historic converted Salvation Army building. By Nikolas Koenig The Asbury Hotel offers contem- porary decor and meeting space in coastal New Jersey. The front desk does double duty as The Counter, a grab- and-go kitchen where guests can purchase coffee and food, and the lounge is a recreation room with pool, pinball and pingpong, along with board games and a communal table. For events, Baronet is a 4,300-square-foot rooftop space on the sixth floor where guests can watch movies on the turf lawn and take in views of the Atlantic. Asbury Hall and Terrace has 4,800 square feet of flexi- ble indoor-outdoor space that can be split into two or three smaller areas. The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel is a Beaux Art build- ing that has been a fixture on the beachfront for over a century. The recently updated hotel boasts 30,000 square feet of renovated function space, including five ballrooms, which can accommodate up to 500 guests for events. A trifecta of historic venues are some of the most popular in the city: Convention Hall, the Paramount Theatre and the Grand Arcade connecting the two. In addition to Springsteen, Convention Hall has hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra, Elton John and the Rolling Stones. The ornate brick exhibition center on the boardwalk was built between 1928 and 1930 and can seat up to 3,600 people. The 1,600-seat Paramount Theatre opened in 1927, and the Grand Arcade, between the two, can also serve as an event venue. Plan Plan A CONVENTION WITH A VIEW. WE MAKE IT EASY TO WORK HARD.
