Castaways is where the cool kids go. Another Phil Stephani spot, this bar/restaurant at North Avenue Beach caters to the young, rowdy crowd that frequents the beach on weekends in the summer. Come here to get smashed on a Saturday afternoon after playing a game of beach volleyball, or stop in for a beer and a hot-dog and listen to the DJ or live music that is often pumping from the upper deck. Definitely a lively spot, it’s a great place to mingle, have a few drinks, and make a few new bronzed, shirtless friends. You can also grab dogs and burgers to-go from the downstairs food stands. *Only open May through September.
