Ugly Mug Club

You may notice the many mugs suspended from the ceiling. Unique in Cape May, the mugs belong to members of the Ugly Mug Club. Each member has his own mug, as they did in the old days of Vaudeville and barbershop quartets. Deceased members of the club are honored by having their mugs hung facing the ocean. In September, members and guests gather together for a special event. Each receives a glass of beer the one who blows the most foam out of the glass becomes the United States National Froth Blowing Champion.


Loyal Order Creed

Mix a little folly with your wisdom, a little nonsense is pleasant now and then.

No Trip to the shore is complete till you have indulged in the fantastic food and drink the Ugly Mug has to offer, Find out for yourself why this is a local hot spot!
