We judged the bars on ambiance, decor, drinks, food, happy hour specials and more to crown the best bar in the city. NOTE: Jersey City has more than 50 bars, but we had to cap it somewhere and made sure to hit all the favorites. Did we miss your favorite bar?
Who did we overrate or underrate? Let us know in the comment section. Barge Inn. The bar in back is the kind of place you probably love if you grew up going there but if not, you're never going to find yourself there. But if you want to have a few beers in a place that feels like a VFW hall basement while people smoke in the corner, look no further. Red Lounge JC. Who drinks here: Wannabe clubbers and people that took a wrong turn looking for the bathroom at Pasta e Vino.
The dance floor is right where you walk into the bar, and the bar space is narrow. The red leather interior lives up to the bar's name but is visually unappealing. The Brightside Tavern. Who drinks here: Brunchers and karaoke fans. It also has a lot of TVs, and a game room with shuffle board. But it doesn't have much of a crowd, and the ambiance is lacking.
Bye marlamoon26! Finishing up yet another awesome smokebreakcomedyshow with djclein! Abbey's Pub. The bottom line: An Irish pub that doubles as a hookah bar? Points for creativity, but not many for execution. While it has a solid beer selection and a pool table, the bar is rundown and has a generally dead vibe. Also, the hookah itself has gotten mixed reviews. Cherry's Lounge. Who drinks here: Greenville residents and sports fans. The bottom line: The bar scene in Greenville isn't exactly thriving, but Cherry's stands out as likely the best place to grab a drink in the neighborhood.
It's got a big bar with lots of TVs and comfortable leather booths, and loads of drink specials. Who drinks here: Regulars and older McGinley Square residents. One room and a long bar with friendly bartenders behind it, with some dimly lit tables to the side.
A kitchen that serves tasty chicken parm subs and pizza among other Italian specialties. Who drinks here: Rockers, music fans and people desperately clinging to the 70's. But the execution is underwhelming, with the 70's decor feeling contrived. The bar holds concerts, but the vibe is pretty dead on nights without live music. On the bright side, the wings are really good! We're all ready for Jungle Boogie! Who drinks here: Art enthusiasts. An eclectic space with local art decorating the walls, you may want to visit this place for an art show but it probably won't be the place you go to grab drinks on a given night.
The bottom line: It feels too early to really judge Bobby Dee's, which was recently renovated and looks much, much nicer than it used to but is still looking to find its groove after expanding its hours. Solid beer selection, lots of TVs and free peanuts at the bar give this spot potential to become a mainstay in the Heights, but it's still a work in progress.
PJ Ryan's Squared. The bottom line: An offshoot of the original PJ Ryan's which is downtown but closed for the summer, Squared is a perfectly fine place to grab a beer before or after hopping on the path, and its 23 TVs make it a decent choice for a football Sunday. The bar is somewhat awkwardly shaped, though, and pretty generic.
McGinley Square Pub. Who drinks here: Saint Peter's students and beer snobs. Frankly, plenty of bars don't have WiFi, but cool? The beer selection is the star here, while the burgers are surprisingly good. The only downside? You'll be eating and drinking it in a bar that's pretty much dead other than on the weekends. Reena Rose Sibayan The Jersey. Grape Vine Tavern. Who drinks here: Regulars and Jersey City history buffs. The bottom line: The very first post-prohibition liquor license in Jersey City was issued to Grape Vine Tavern more than 50 years ago, and it's still on the wall at this tiny haunt just blocks from Journal Square.
It's dimly lit and there isn't a whole lot of room, but great music is always playing, the beer is cheap and the service is friendly. The Royal. The bottom line: Jersey City's second gay bar opened in February and boasts weekly drag competitions, karaoke and live DJs. The ambiance can be a bit dull when the place isn't full, but believe you me it gets crazy for the many special events it hosts.
O'Leary's Publik House. Who drinks here: Locals and people not afraid to go a little out of their way for a good bite. The service is very friendly, the beer selection is strong and the food is really good — how many other bars are offering Ahi Tuna sandwiches with a chipotle orange maple glaze?
Hudson Hall. Who drinks here: People looking to blend Zeppelin Hall with Porta. The bottom line: Hudson Hall is massive and gorgeous, with an impressive menu loaded with bar food, sandwiches and snacks. Their giant projectors make this a decent place to watch a sporting event, but the vibe here is just off.
It's basically a beer hall with a dance hall vibe, with music so loud it's hard to even have a conversation. Grove Corner Bar. The bottom line: In a city lacking many sports bars, Grove Corner Bar is a fine place to watch a game. The service isn't great, but you can definitely do a lot worse than Grove Corner Bar. Iron Monkey. Who drinks here: Couples on dates and people hellbent on rooftop drinking. The bottom line: The good news? Iron Monkey has a rooftop. The bad news? The views are limited by taller buildings, though the greenery and waterfall up there are visually appealing.
Give this bar credit for utilizing an awkward, narrow space over two floors and a roof. But it feels like much more of a restaurant than a bar, and the food we had was nothing to write home about. When the weather's fine We go fishin' or go swimmin' in the sea We're always happy Life's for livin' yeah, that's our philosophy mungojerry summertime naturalwine cocktails restaurantdesign aussie jungslowstyle 70sstyle bohostyle travel adventure wanderlust sodomino travelgram explore holiday passionpassport mytravelgram.
Who drinks here: Jersey City foodies and hipsters. The bottom line: Frankie is an Australian-themed restaurant. I don't really know what that entails, but the food is good and so are the cocktails. The decor is appealing, as are the beautiful plants that fill the restaurant. Good for parties or dates, it doesn't get too crazy but it's a very nice change of pace bar with good service.
Come on in for our happy hour from Lutze Biergarten.
Who drinks here: Commuters, bros and families. The bottom line: Lutze has one thing going for it that the other beer gardens in the area don't — an amazing view. There's something special about drinking a cold one right on the Hudson River in the shadow of downtown Manhattan.
