Max Fish Opening Summer Outpost in Asbury Park Starting Saturday

Max Fish is headed to the Jersey shore this summer to chill in the Boss’ old stomping grounds. Not with Snooki.

That’s right. Paper Magazine reported yesterday evening that owner Uli Rimkus is opening a summer location of the popular bar on the boardwalk in Asbury Park.

Dubbed Max Fish at the Beach Bar, this outpost is made to “look like Max Fish but beachy, with blues, greens and clouds.” Pool tables are replaced with Skee-Ball, decidedly less punk rock.

The Asbury Park version is open weekends starting Saturday through Memorial Day; service is daily after that. The ambitious endeavor also includes a monthly shuttle bus from the Lower East Side. Said Rimkus:

I’ve been coming here for years with my daughter and it’s beautiful. It’s really easy to get here — you can take New Jersey Transit or drive. I’m hoping my friends will come out because it’s going to be really, really great.

This isn’t the first time Max Fish jumped state lines to expand its concept. You’ll recall that Ms. Rimkus flirted with Miami in 2009.
