Coming Soon: Essex Junction Craft Kitchen & Bar

In December 2015, Experience Management Group plans to launch its first gastropub concept, Essex Junction Craft Kitchen & Bar in the heart of downtown Bloomfield!

CEO & Partner Jeremy Goldberg, a North Caldwell native, CIA graduate and Miami restaurateur, returns to his #HipNJ roots to open a fun, community social gathering place.

“The style I have created here is unique to the Essex Junction brand and we call it “Polished Industrial Chic”. The highlights are a custom suspension bridge chandelier, black leather chesterfield style banquettes, stained concrete floors, chefs table within a tubular metal tunnel style cage, 23 foot raw concrete columns with vertical garden treatment, and a phenomenal stone and steel bar that must be experienced to be appreciated, ” explained Joe Berkowitz of JAB Design Group.

Essex Junction will be a neighborhood restaurant and craft beer bar serving house-made signature dishes with a focus on quality ingredients, accompanied by great craft beers from local and national brewers, a killer cocktail program and artisanal wines. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be served daily along with happy hour and weekend brunch. Located just steps from the Bloomfield train station, there will be special breakfast options available for commuters.

Say ‘I do!’ to Wedding Salon!

A gallery of décor, gowns, towered cakes—DJ’s, photographers, and planners that could all be a part of your special day!

#HipNJ’s Kelly Dillon was surrounded by all the blissful wedding details as she chatted with CEO & Founder of Wedding Salon, Tatiana Byron.

With exhibitors from Long Island, New York City, the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico and of course hip New Jersey, love birds flock to The Wedding Salon for ideas and inspiration as they plan their special day.

“It’s basically a place where couples can come and meet with their dream vendors for everything from finding their gown to honeymoon destinations, their photographer, get their hair and makeup done and sample cake,” Byron explained.

As a wedding planner, Byron wanted to create a one-stop destination couples could visit that featured all of their wedding day essentials.

“They didn’t have a platform or a place to go where it’s a curated experience with the best of the best,” Byron said.

In business for over ten years, Wedding Salon has travelled to several major cities across the U.S. including NYC, Chicago, Miami and Washington D.C. Next on the road map for this delightful demo: Texas, the Lone Star state!

Wedding Salon patron Alison Komorowski boasted about how professional and informative all of the vendors at the bridal show were, stating she couldn’t wait to see what was in store.

And the icing on the cake…world famous Carlos Bakery was on the scene with samples sure to make your mouth water!

“We always love these events because people get so excited about their wedding,” Lauren Souza of Carlos Bakery said, “We do every single kind of cake and we love to do it and make the brides happy.”

You know what they say…happy bride, happy life!
