Why Should I Go? The Brown Room is called Cape May’s living room, but let’s be very clear. When we say “living room,” we don’t mean the kind of space where you zone out in front of a bad sitcom on a La-Z-Boy recliner in your PJs. This living room is far too sexy for all that. Sure, it’s a comfortable space, just like a living room should be. The cushy brown sofas are a delightful place to rest your weary bones after a long day, the roaring fireplace lends a cozy feel, and the stocked bookshelves entice you to relax with a good read. But the chocolate walls, the antique oil paintings, and the tiger-print carpeting, especially when paired with a marble and dark wood bar, make for an energy that’s anything but La-Z-boy. There’s no television in this living room; just good conversation, good company, and skilled bartenders to take care of all the rest.
Insider Tip: The Brown Room is the frequent venue of acoustic guitar and piano players. Order food from the bar’s small bites menu while you enjoy the music or, if you’re in the mood for something heartier, order from the adjoining Blue Pig Tavern.
