Seaport Pier in North Wildwood Near CompletionLast Edited:
Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and summer at the shore has officially begun.
The owners of a new business in North Wildwood are hoping to give visitors a different experience along the Boardwalk.
This massive 60,000-square-foot pier is what makes up the brand new Seaport Pier.
“We wanted to bring something different," said Amy Schnauffer, director of sales and marketing at Seaport Pier. "This is more of a resort-style living area that’s not really featured here in North Wildwood."
And resort-style service starts as soon as you walk into The Dive Bar.
“The Dive Bar has a very aquatic feel to it. We are featuring 98 bar stools around the bar, one of the largest in North Wildwood," said Schnauffer. "There will also be high cocktail tables and low cocktail tables as well as dining tables.”
The pier has direct access to the beach.
“We actually brought the beach back to life on 22nd Street so we are really, really excited," said Schnauffer. "We also have provided public restrooms ... for people coming off the beach.”
Which leads right up to the outside bar.
“The Sand Bar outside is directly off of our beach access here at 22nd street [and] the great thing about [it] is it’s something different," said Schnauffer. "You can come up off the beach [and] grab a bite to eat.”
Food will be served both inside and outside.
“We have Green Eggs Café ... handling all the food portion of everything, whether you’re looking for a breakfast spot, a brunch spot, a lunch spot, a dinner spot, or even a late-night snack,” said Schnauffer.
And last but certainly not least is the pool area. The 40-foot by 80-foot pool is an exclusive area reserved for members.
“Anybody that’s looking for day passes, unfortunately, we will not be selling [them] due to the demand for membership," said Schnauffer. "We are almost completely sold out for membership.”
Sixteen in-pool stools sit along the swim-up bar that’s directly under a stage.
“We will be featuring live music on a daily basis, certain special events at night," said Schnauffer. "We’re also featuring out to the end of the pier. [And] where the other Seaport Pier sign is, there will be a stage there as well and we’ll be featuring bands throughout the summer.”
Although Mother Nature put a damper on their initial opening date, the crew is excited and eager to hopefully open the doors of Seaport Pier starting late next week.
