Playland Motel

Rockaways

Opened in the old Tap & Grill space in Rockaway Beach, Playland Motel melds an beach-bar vibe and new-school hipsterism. The pleasingly ramshackle front-room serves strong drinks and food options which range from the expected burgers and pizza to various salads and "Pennsylvania pig-butt tacos." Name-brand DJs occasionally rock their beats in the massive back yard (and within the venue itself)—and if you party too hard, boutique rooms are available.

Love this place. Just hope it doesn't get too blown up too fast. Unique spot. Great food & drinks and mellow vibe. Go on the weekdays if you can, but there are really good DJ's on the weekends.
