New Jersey has its fair share of amazing places to grab an ice-cold beverage after work, or on your day off.

I'm a big fan of the Sawmill, the Sandbar, and B2 Bistro in Bayville when I'm looking to go out and grab a few drinks with my wife or some friends.

But there's one bar in Jersey that recently made the list of best bars in America, and it's located in Monmouth County!

Now, Monmouth County has a ton of great places to grab a drink.

In Asbury Park alone you have R Bar, The Asbury Ale House, and Johnny Mac's House of Spirits.

My wife and I almost bought a house in Asbury because it was close to Johnny Mac's, that place is seriously one of a kind, they have free personal pizzas, a downstairs arcade, and the walls are covered in cool old instruments and crazy decorations.
