About HOI

House of Independents brings Asbury Park’s ever-growing community of creative thinkers a venue that reflects their originality and versatility. The House supports a wide spectrum of uses, with convertible attributes such as its retractable seating system and movable stages. The stadium-style seats can be implemented for theatre productions, movie premieres, conferences and more, or they can be hidden away to open floor space for events such as weddings, concerts, and fundraisers.

For seated events, our capacity is 275. Thanks to fully retractable seating, you can host both an open floor and seated event within minutes. Additionally, we can place VIP tables closer to the stage for special guests.

When the seats are closed and you are ready to rock, House of Independents can hold 500 attendees. With bars located on both the upper and lower levels, your guests will have no problem getting a beverage. We stock premium liquor by companies such at MacAllan, Grey Goose, Angels Envy, Patron, Hendricks; bottled beer such as Miller Lite, Dogfish, Budweiser, Lagunitas, Yuengling, Pabst Blue Ribbon; and local draft brews from Asbury Park Brewery, Brooklyn, Carton, Dark City, Kane, Little Dog; plus, we can custom order something you may need for your event.
