: DJ, Top 40
We know what you’re thinking—why would I go to New Jersey to celebrate my birthday? We’re thinking it too. However, Hoboken has all the great views of New York City that you can only get from outside of New York City. Totally worth the trip to another state. And this place is own by “Real Housewives of New Jersey” offspring, Albie and Chris Manzo. So take that as you will.
It’s got the feel of a dive bar, but the looks of a diva bar. See what we did there? Although, don’t get the wrong impression. We don’t mean a diva like Mariah. More like—a place where Patti Labelle would kick of her high heels and have a martini and chat with all the cute boys at the bar. Wait, does that make it sound like a gay bar? It’s not. We just wanted you to know it was a decadent bar, but a fun and chill vibe.
There’s tuna tartare here and there’s also a burger…with mac & cheese on it. A mac & cheese burger! You’ve probably seen it on Instagram before. Go here. Get it. Change your life. This place don’t know nothin’ about servin’ no bar food! They’re all about elevating the flavors and the dishes to a recognizable, but more fierce taste.
If you love the atmosphere of a bar, but with the type of food that could easily win an iron chef competition, this is the place to book. This is a true gastropub experience. We hate that word, but that’s exactly what it is—a bar where the food is the star. Impress your friends with the amazing menu and the view of New York they don’t seen often.
