Despite its location at the center of the tourist universe, CJ's feels like a hole in the wall that you might find on a beach in Clearwater. The ambiance is perfect for unwinding; the outside has shell-adorned mirrors hanging from the walls while flat screens peep out from second floor windows. After sunset, tea-light lanterns are brought out while Jack Johnson or Bob Marley plays over the speakers. If you are more of an indoor person, head to the second floor bar where funky murals and stained glass windows give the space a red-orange glow. The area in front of the stage has large, lounge-like couches and seating while simpler high-tops are scattered throughout the rest of the space. A juke box, dart boards, and pool table add to the lounge's hidden treasure vibe.
