    The bar scene in the 1979 Amityville Horror was filmed at a bar on East Water Street in Toms River,NJ. The bar is long since gone and the area has been converted into a park

    The Witches Brew bar was actually a bar called “Reynolds”, if I remember correctly. The scene was shot at the rear of the building. It is currently the “Music Academy”, a place for music lessons.
    In the background of this shot you can see the roof of a hotel. It is currently called “The Red Carpet Inn”.
    That area is on the corner of Water street and Rt. 9, not far from the house used in the movie.
    I remember driving past the house, with my parents, as a kid while they were shooting a scene.
