One of the benefits of living at the Jersey Shore is that there is no shortage of events, places, and opportunities to enjoy a fun girls’ night out with a bestie or an entire gang. Whether you’re craving a cute night at a wine bar, belly laughs at a comedy show, arts and crafts, or some fitness and holistic healing — we’ve got you covered. These unique GNO ideas go beyond a dinner outing or a local bar visit. Read on for our roundup of the best girls’ night-out spots at the Jersey Shore.

Asbury Park

Arm Vibes Bracelet Bar | 658 Cookman Avenue

Get zapped with your best friends… forever. Arm Vibes Bracelet Bar, located inside the Shoppes in the Arcade, is the Jersey Shore’s first permanent jewelry and bracelet-making experience. Permanent bracelets are a cute and sentimental way to celebrate the bond you have with your closest gal pals. Permanent jewelry is welded together instead of secured with a clasp (although there is a clasp option if the permanent kind is not for you!) Or check the Arm Vibe’s bead bar to make a charm bracelet.

Asbury Lanes hosts local and national touring acts, DJs, themed events, and, of course, bowling. Be sure to check the event calendar to see what’s on the schedule before rallying the girl gang.

Bowling is available at $30 per half hour and up to six guests can be accommodated per lane. Shoe rentals are $5 on-site. Whether you’re bowling or watching a show, you can grab a drink at the bar or enjoy a meal at the on-site retro-themed diner, which has everything from delicious boozy shakes to loaded waffle fries.

Don’t Tell Comedy specializes in introducing audiences to the best-emerging talent as well as a mix of local and nationally touring comedians. You never know who might show up. Don’t Tell Comedy shows are BYOB and for ages 21+. Tickets can be purchased online.
