Djais – Jersey Shore Review

Djais

When you think Djais, just think a giant adult frat party, and you’ll understand what you’re about to walk into. If you loved frat parties and house parties in college, you’re going to love this place – if not, stay away.

The best days to check out Djais are Thursday-Sunday, it has an upbeat crowd with equally upbeat music. If you’re not from the Jersey Shore and wanted to party like Pauly D and Vinny, this would be the place to do it at.

There are no bottle packages available and inside, the male: female ratio is not fair, and most people come in groups. Ladies, this is what Mr.Nokturnal likes to call a bro environment. A bro environment is when there are a lot of men that hit on every female around. It’s also a big groupie kind of space.

This bar only accepts cash but has two ATM’s. One outside, and one inside. You can start a tab if you’re in a group over the amount of 5 people. Drinks are not reasonably priced for the aesthetic and service you’re getting. After all, in this place, you’re likely to see ladies in flip flops, and jumpers. It’s a very laid back place for locals to go, we learned this by seeing how rude the bartenders were to non-locals.

Djais has it’s “nine-week” summer window to make money, and that’s exactly what they do. There is a never a dull night there with security and cops stationed outside to make sure you’re not leaving wasted. They will also pull you aside if you’re acting out of character or being rude to any staff member.

It can be challenging or damn near impossible moving through the crowd because of how filled the space gets, but you can still dance.

The bathrooms here are really, really gross and so is the floors in the club, but everyone seemed to be having a great time around me if you are a true frat star or frat rat you will thrive in this environment.

If the Nokturnal Group came to the shore, we’d make an appearance but we would never make the trip up to be here.

So, should you go? Up to you, this is only our review.

Verdict: Best day party vibes at the shore

MUSIC

Monday-Wednesday in the summer consists of bands during happy hour and local DJ’s at night. Thursday-Sunday is typically the DJ’s that bring the fist-pumping crowd with their EDM music.

Headliner – Jersey Shore Review

Headliner

We headed to The Headliner to see if the hype was right Now, you can be the judge.

The Headliner is located right off the Belmar bridge entering Neptune. 

Now, this bar is different from any other bar on the Jersey Shore. It has two ways to get in, leading to three different bars(that’s dope). If you go through the “pub doors,” you’re entering a room that’s dark and dingy – not appealing.

You’ll see a crowd that varies in age, from 21-45 with a ratio of about 65:35 in favor of men. Outside there’s a tiki bar and it has a pool(think lesser Miami vibe) with an area for volleyball and a large bar. This place either has a live band or a DJ. You can go to a third bar named “main bar” which has a more club vibe and aesthetic. 

Best days to check this spot – or spots, really – are Friday nights which could either have a DJ with house music or a live band during their famous happy hour. Or, Saturday afternoons are great for parties in the summer. This spot does offer tables with bottle service upon request before you arrive. Bottle service may be really cool in the day time with the cabanas and all but at night when the music is so loud(Mr.Nokturnal recommends ear plugs) you can’t chat so there is literally no point in having a section.

Men can face cover charges between $20-50 and ladies more times than not are free – yay. There are occasional times where they have to pay $10 dollars to get in but that’s fine, Saturday nights are worth it.

There was a lot of designer clothing worn because it’s a typical guido spot. Women dressed in semi-casual but dressy wear, and men dressed in nice clothes and we’re musclar. Most of the people here were attractive, which is always a bonus. 

So, depending on what night, what you want, and what events/music and the day/night you’re going to have options. It would be a solid night to go to for an event, or maybe even a recovery on a Sunday when you partied too hard all weekend and just want to lay in the sun with people in little to no clothing. 

All in all, a solid place with a lot of different vibes, and more upscale than most places on The Shore. 

Verdict: I like it over most spots at the shore on Saturday nights but may only catch me here once or twice a summer max

Mixed.

Bar A – Jersey Shore Review

Bar Anticipation

Looking for a great place to hit up on a Tuesday in the jersey shore? We have the answer: Bar A.

Bar A is famous for it’s beat the clock drink specials Tuesday. It gets so busy that if you show up past 5 pm, there is no way you’re getting in unless you patiently wait in the line for 1-3 hours. I applaud you if you have that level of patience. You also cannot pay off the bouncers here – we tried, and we were generous.

Everyone at this spot dresses really relaxed, and the variety of fashion goes from beach outfits to city and night club vibes. Women are casual in sundresses, jean shorts, flipflops, wedges, etc.. Men were seen in ripped jeans, graphic tees, floral shirts, etc..

This place is massive, and could hold probably 2,000 people and is made up of 5+ bars – each seemingly different vibes. Bar A has a section with cabanas and sand which can be bought for table service. When it rains however, they close the outside portion. Some times in the day they host bar games, but our suggestion is to call ahead, or looking at their website to stay up to date with current events.

The ratio here is solid and is a good place to mingle. This is the place friend groups come together to hang out, and there isn’t really a designated place to dance, but if you can get down anywhere then please do so. The drinks though.. watered down. When ordering shots of tequila, the bartender shook it on ice, and even when asked for warm tequila, they still seemed watered down. The bartenders are really friendly though, so I mean if the drinks are cheap and the staff is friendly.. how much can you complain about the watered down shots?

This is a cash-only bar. It gets crazy and cash is easier to handle. The bar is a typical Shore vibe with EDM music, top 40 and absolutely no hip-hop. The best days to check Bar A out are Tuesday 3pm-close, Sunday 12-8pm, and Friday 7-11pm. Wednesday’s and Saturday’s are aight but not the best. The music isn’t extremely loud, and some people stay inside to hear the live band. 

This place is noooooot eco-friendly! Which is a big downer. They use a lot of plastic for their beer(which tastes like the beer you got when you were underage).

This place will see the Nokturnal Group again if we’re all feeling a chill Tuesday night. But, make sure if you come to hang, show up early!
