Owners, Northeast Philly residents, Trish and Jimmy Mikula along with General Manager/Part Owner, Matt Sobon’s vision of offering something unique to its patrons is definitely working and word spreads fast! Their grand opening was in June and the fun and entertainment hasn’t stopped since! It seems like they thought of everything including live entertainment all day and everyday of the week in THE COVE, from duos to full bands including the Heartbeats, the Exceptions, the Rockets, FM band and many more including some local acts as well. The large stage is equipped with over $100,000 worth of sound equipment with speakers throughout the property. There is a video cam set up with large screens so you can see yourself dance and an awesome light show with a disco ball every Friday and Saturday 10-2am with some of the best DJ’s in the area too. The Cove is equipped with 2 extra large bars with plenty of seating on each side, with loads of sand in the center to dance in!
Every Monday, from 6-10pm check out the Bay Cruisers with David Christopher. It’s also a Moore’s Inlet reunion. Every Wednesday from 6-9pm get ready to do the Hula to the sweet sounds of the 16 piece band for the Cove’s Hawaiian Luau! Bring the whole family for this event, for just $30 per adult and $15 per child; enjoy a Hawaiian buffet feast, including a slow Roasted Pig Roast, Pineapple Ham, Coconut Shrimp, Corn on the Cob, Pulled Pork Sandwiches and more! Make your plans for an unbelievable Labor Day weekend at the Cove for the “Summer Palooza”, from Friday until Monday every hour a different band will be performing and there will be lots of Frozen Drinks, Ice Cold Beer, Fantastic Food, and Beautiful Sunsets over looking the water.
This place was hopping the day I came down to meet with Matt, who graciously invited me for lunch too. Matt shared that not only is Coconut Cove an exciting place to be but it has also become a great opportunity for job seekers, with 250 employees on staff to assure that all of their guests have a unforgettable experience too. While chatting I enjoyed an icy frozen Pina Colada and ate up the delicious Coconut Shrimp, side of Fresh Fruit and Cove Crab Fries w/cheese sauce. Speaking of food…. You can get the best Hard Shell Crabs all day long on the deck or while seated at umbrella tables overlooking the water in “Crab Alley” or hang out at the Bay Club, where you can enjoy an upscale but casual Seafood dining experience with indoor or out door seating. Hang out inside the Tiki House equipped with two full bars and live entertainment by DJ or bands like the Juliano Brothers, from 10pm-3am. Sports fans have their very own Sports bar too, with a deck overlooking the bay, right on top of the Tiki House where you will find 12 flat screen televisions so you won’t miss any games either! Of course the Cove’s Island Grille, is open from 11am to 3am and has the best Raw Bar around with Fresh Mussels, Clams, Pick & Peel Shrimp, Crabs and Oysters. You can also order Cheese Steaks, Burgers and other bar food favorites.
There are lots of drink specials Monday thru Friday for their Happy Hour 4-7pm including $3.00 Miller Lites, $2.00 Hot Dogs and $3.00 Cheeseburgers. And there is never a charge to get into the Coconut Cove! Open at 11am every day of the week until the Fall or until it’s too cold to party on the beach! So make your plans and come down to the Jersey shore’s own “Tropical Paradise”-Coconut Cove! For more information visit them on Facebook or at their website @www.coconutcovenj.com
