Seacrets has turned into more than just a restaurant or bar, it’s a destination. Seacrets started as a small, members-only club on June 29, 1988, with the idea of having the guests feel as if they were in Jamaica. The establishment that once sat about 100 people has grown to be Ocean City’s biggest hot spot.
Not only is Seacrets known for its unconventional and exotic concept, which is so different than Ocean City’s norm, it offers more than mentionable Jamaican cuisine. Its signature Jerk Chicken as well as signature drinks, namely the Pain in Da Ass, are very popular.
Seacrets owner Leighton Moore, who resides in West Ocean City, has not forgotten about his loyal local customers. Although Seacrets is a popular tourist hot spot, Seacrets offers free cover to locals and the chance for locals to obtain Gold Cards, which allow local customers to jump to the front of the line. As well as offering these perks, Seacrets is open during the off-season to offer special happy hour prices and half price dinners, to name a few.
As well as supporting local customers, Seacrets supports local businesses, including a few craft breweries, such as Evolution Craft Brewing Company by showcasing its craft brew Tropicale, as well as Dogfish Head Brewery by serving its craft brew Namaste. Seacrets has also started producing its own liquors including Seacrets Spiced Rum, which can be found in their Beer, Wine, and Liquor store.
Whether you are in the mood to check out one of the establishments on the ‘Nightclub & Bar Top 100 list’, ‘Buzzfeed’s 19 Bars In America You Should Drink At Before You Die’ or you are just in the mood for some delicious Jamaican fare and signature frozen drinks, Seacrets is a must-do item on the list for those visiting Ocean City, Maryland.
