The venue overall is quite spacious but can get quite packed on the weekends so keep that in mind when you visit.

A newer edition to Newark Ave, The Ashford is closest to a club you will find in Jersey City. In the day it’s perfect to stop by the bar or rooftop in the summer for some refreshing frozen cocktails and yummy eats but usually, at night, the Ashford turns into a club. They usually have  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. Get those dancing shoes on!

They choose to only offer craft beers made in the Garden State because they are such excellent matches for their food. You can always enjoy a beer and snack in their front bar, or have an intimate dinner in their beautiful dining room, or throw a party upstairs. After walking past the bar, the back has a sitting area that will remind you of a library or your grandfather’s den filled with books and leather couches.

Harrys Daughter

339 Communipaw Ave #4072

Harrys Daughter is a gastropub in the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood of Jersey City. Threading a fine line between relaxed and refined, the food elevates the flavors of Caribbean home cooking in unique and thoughtful ways and for the drink menu, tropical flavors with the latest trends in cocktails. The decor is absolutely stunning with the hanging chairs, lush tropical wallpaper, and lots of plants. They have a huge sizable bar with a ton of drinks options but their tropical cocktails are a must-try especially their best selling rum punch.
