There isn’t a more sophisticated way to wrap up your day in Cape May than an evening at the
Brown Room, a stylish lounge occupying the same spot as Congress Hall’s first legal
post-Prohibition cocktail bar.

Spend a little time deep in one of the comfortable leather chairs enjoying the fire and gentle buzz of friendly conversation around you and it’s not difficult to see why The Brown Room is called “Cape May’s Living Room.” It’s a great place rendezvous with friends after a day on the beach, and it’s also a great place to meet new friends since there’s something about the Brown Room that seems to encourage people to reach out and connect with each other.

Maybe it’s the 1930s-inspired design with its famous zebra skin carpet, large palms, magnificent artwork and iconic fireplace with its tropical birds. Maybe it’s the friendliness of the bartenders and the delicious libations they pour. Or, maybe it’s the patrons themselves who always seem ready to share stories about Cape May or some interesting tips on what to see or do the next day. Open at noon each day, The Brown Room is the hub of Congress Hall.

Hours of Operation:
Mon-Thurs: 5pm-11pm
Fri-Sat: 12pm-1am
Sun: 12pm-11pm

We kindly request that children not be permitted in the Brown Room from 9pm onwards. The hotel lobby may be used for family gatherings including children, after 9pm. Thank you.
