A Newcomer’s Guide to Hoboken Nightlife

When adjusting to Hoboken nightlife, it’s best to be patient. This is not New York City, but you will love the peace and charm of these local favorites.

Stingray Lounge

Stingray Lounge opened in October of 2014, in beautiful uptown Hoboken on 1210 Washington Street. Since it’s opening, this haunt has been delivering the finest oysters and cocktails in the city. Take in this place’s modern vibe as you sip a handcrafted drink and watch a black and white classic movie as rock music hums in the background.

You might find yourself overwhelmed at first with the long bar’s seemingly never-ending selection of spirits, but don’t worry, the staff’s helpful knowledge will put you at ease. You’ll really taste the difference of the housemade pickled garnishes, syrups, and juices.

After you have your drink, take a seat at the community chef’s table and enjoy the show before you enjoy your oysters or meal.

Coco Havana

Take a trip to Havana without ever leaving Hoboken at Coco Havana at 32 Newark Street. This authentic spot has a delightful Cuban and Latin fusion menu, where you can order anything from a classic Cuban sandwich to a decadent sizzling Churrasco steak and all the fixings.

Or join Coco Havana for Happy Hour and enjoy their delicious mojitos.

Kolo Klub

“Kolo” means “bicycle” in Czech, which is fitting to this club’s unexpected and extraordinary atmosphere right at 1422 Grand Street.

Kolo Klub is the neighborhood’s newest music venue where you can enjoy live music of jazz, blues, rock or DJs spinning the latest hits. You can even find theatrical performances and Burlesque shows.

Enjoy this entertainment while sipping an expertly handcrafted cocktail at Kolo Klubs breathtaking bar and lounge space.

Living Room at W Hotel

Escape your living room, and enjoy the one at the W Hotel at 225 River Street. Here you can relax in a cozy, intimate setting. Sink into their oversized furniture and escape from your day while you snack on the W’s restaurant Zylo’s menu, or sip on one of the W’s signature cocktails.

Feel at home as you play a board game, or bring your computer and enjoy the complimentary high-speed wifi. The Living Room at the W Hotel will soon be your home away from home.

Mills Tavern

Located right on Hoboken’s vibrant Washington Street, this neighborhood meeting spot has the ambiance of a West Village pub. Marvel at the tavern’s high ceilings, exposed brick, natural wood and vintage Americana accents as you enjoy a bite or drink.
