Welcome to The Landing at Jones Beach
Pristinely restored to the days of its former glory, the West Bathhouse at Jones Beach is once again available for dining and entertaining. Thanks to an extensive restoration investment from the New York State parks, the public can once again drink in the magnificent, uninterrupted ocean views while enjoying a fine dining experience.
The interior captures the charm of the 1920s and 30s with Art Deco accents, gorgeously restored original millwork, and the finest finishes fit for a scene from Gatsby all the while equipped with all the modern updates and conveniences including a state of the art kitchen, brand new facilities, and most importantly a brand new HVAC, to make every guest feel right at home.
A Little History
Originally opened in 1929, Jones Beach is a capstone achievement to the acclaimed park leader and urban designer Robert Moses. The project was intended to allow visitors pristine parkland with all of the best luxuries of the time: fine dining, swimming pools, and an extensive boardwalk. To this day, it is one of the metropolitan area’s finest beaches and is host to concerts, events, and countless memories.
The West Bathhouse was originally designed for bathers to use as changing rooms as well as provide a location for the Marine Dining Hall, a bar and restaurant for those who wanted a more upscale day at the beach. Moses himself handpicked the most expensive materials for its exterior – Ohio sandstone and Barbizon brick – as the facade for both East and West Bathhouses. They became iconic structures and functional facilities for beachgoers. The West Bathhouse also encompasses a massive stone terrace overlooking one of Jones Beach’s iconic swimming pools.
Unfortunately, after closing, the structure became underused and fell into some disrepair until Gov. Cuomo’s extensive restoration plan, which has dedicated over $60 million in revitalizing Jones Beach over the next few years. The Landing is the first operator to take over in two generations, and we are proud to offer the highest quality local fare in such a magnificent space.
