Long Beach Island has a great tradition of nightlife. There are almost 30 bars on the island. Keep in mind that the music genre may change from time to time. Most of the free papers will have listings of the current bands. In addition to the nightspots listed here, there are a number of local bars that don't have a band but often have some great tunes on the jukebox. You can also try some of the lounges in hotels such as the Engleside.

Beach Haven has a number of hot nightspots. If your wallet can afford the cover charges, you can always bar hop till you find just the right spot. Parking can be very tight, especially on the weekends and parking regs are rigorously enforced. Also, most of the bars have a zero tolerance zone around them so play it cool when coming and going.
