The Ashford

145 Newark Ave, Jersey City, NJ, 07302

The Ashford is closest to a club you will find in Jersey City. In the day it’s perfect to stop by the rooftop in the summer for some refreshing frozen cocktails and yummy eats but usually, at night, the Ashford turns into a club. The rooftop is also open in the winter and is covered as well as heated. They usually have a DJ and there can be a line you have to wait in before you get in. They also do private events and bottle service so if you are celebrating a birthday, this spot would be perfect. If you want to have a fun night with your friends, definitely check it out!
