Bernie’s Beach Bar
The beachfront deck at Bernie’s Beach Bar, New Hampshire’s largest deck
More than a bar, Bernie’s is known far and wide for its expansive rooftop deck restaurant and equally, among young adult nightclubbers, as Hampton Beach’s premier live music venue, with a large dance floor and nightly band performances starting around 7:00pm during the summer season. Bernie’s is open from 11:00am until 1:00am daily, but get there early for the bands or plan to wait in line.
Bernie’s is highly recommended for the panoramic views from its deck on a summer afternoon and evening, which may be the best on the New Hampshire Seacoast, and its live entertainment experience is certainly unparalleled anywhere in the Granite State.
Bernie’s is located on Ocean Boulevard, at the south end of the beach, between L and M Streets, across the street from the South State Bathhouse. Its expansive deck offers diners unobstructed, panoramic views of the beach and the North Atlantic from virtually every table in the dining area, and virtually every seat at the bar.
Bernie’s serves seafood entrées, as well as soups, salads, pastas and pub food, for lunch and dinner, and the quality of the menu items and service has been as consistently good as the quality of its open-air ambiance.
Highly recommended for the views from the deck on a summer afternoon, which may be the best on the New Hampshire Seacoast, and live entertainment experience is unparalleled anywhere in the Granite State.
