The Crow’s Nest Cocktail Bar is a newly opened establishment on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk.  Situated in one of Carolina Beach’s historic Boardwalk buildings The Crow’s Nest features plenty of room to party or lounge with an upstairs area, a downstairs area and even an outdoor deck.  Named after the best vantage point found on old ships, The Crow’s Nest, offers amazing views of the ocean, the Boardwalk and all over downtown Carolina Beach.  Locally owned and operated by Russ and Mary Beth Berry, who are close friends with the previous owner of the location, Kelly Sowler, took over the business on a “Love Mission” to help renovate and revamp the location, for all to enjoy. 
The Berry’s have gone through and completely remodeled the entire space downstairs, upstairs and the even the outdoor deck to provide a comfortable and fun coastal atmosphere which everyone will love.  Along with reopening the upstairs area they have added seating and tables on the upstairs outdoor deck so you can lounge and enjoy your drinks with friends while basking in the sun and ocean breeze.  They even keep buckets of ice available on the outdoor area so you can keep your drinks ice cold while you relax!
