“Located on the Boardwalk between Talbot and Caroline Streets, the Purple Moose is rock ‘n roll heaven on the beach,” according to the Purple Moose website, and I couldn’t have said it better if I tried. If you’re tired of listening to Pop and EDM in every other bar you go and just want some good ol’ rock ‘n roll, this is definitely the place to be with live performances of your favorite rock tunes. Oh, and word on the street is they make the best Bloody Marys.

It has a great grill with pool tables, a shuffle bowl board, electronic dart board, and a jukebox loaded with just about any music. Fans of the Cork Bar promise the coldest beers and the friendliest bartenders in Ocean City that’ll have you coming back for more.

M. R. Ducks

Located right next to the Route 50 bridge on Talbot St., M.R. Ducks is the place to be whether you’re looking for live bands, beautiful sunsets, savory food, cold drinks, you name it. While you’re there, you must chug-a-duck! A chug-a-what? It’s an upside down duck filled with your favorite drink and then you…well you chug! I’d show you a picture, but it’s best to see for yourself.
