SEA BRIGHT: One of the borough's most popular summer destinations will be serving thirsty patrons on the beach this summer.
LBP Corp, trading as Donovan's Reef, was approved for a phased opening which will allow them to open this summer with a temporary beach tiki bar during the Jun 28 Sea Bright Planning/Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting.
Donovan's followed a similar path last summer as they wait for construction of their permeant bar/restaurant to be rebuilt after it was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
The tiki bar can be open until Sept. 30, at which time the phasing expires. After Sept. 30, Donovan's will have to continue construction of the already permanent structure. That construction is slated to take about 10 months.
Donovan's has not yet stated when they plan to open the tiki bar.
