Top Night Spots in New Jersey

According to 2018 travel and tourism data, New Jersey ranks highly among the most visited states in the US. There are many reasons cited as to why New Jersey is such a darling to many people chief among them being the vibrant nature of the state’s nightlife. It is for this reason why we decided to share with you some of the top night spots in New Jersey, just in time for New Year’s Eve!

As a side note, you ought to know that New Jersey is one of the few states in the US which regulate online gambling hence you can still play blackjack online when you visit this northeastern US state.

The Dome Rooftop & Lounge at the Manor
For those who love wining and dining at upscale bars, New Jersey offers The Dome Rooftop & Lounge at the Manor. Both local and foreign beverages are served at this stunning bar. Most-played music at the Dome Rooftop is old school hits. The beauty of the Dome Rooftop bar is that it’s located at the top of the Manor restaurant hence revelers get to see the beautiful stars overhead when they are on the dance floor or just resting on the sofas. Every Fridays and Saturdays there are some live performances at the Dome Rooftop bar.

46 Lounge
Depending on the day that you visit 46 Lounge, you can expect to enjoy some hip-hop, mash-ups, house or some contemporary Brazilian music. While 46 Lounge offers a bit of everything in terms of music, the beauty of this place is in its design. 46 Lounge comes in contemporary ambience with a Brazilian cherry dance floor. The dance floor is quite spacious that dozens of people can all enjoy the blasting music all at once.

Mandala
Just like 46 Lounge, Mandala bar offers different themes for different crowds on different days. The most popular nights at Mandala are Latino Nights i.e. Fridays and Saturdays and Gay Nights on Thursdays and Sundays. Open every day of the week, visitors to Mandala can expect to enjoy themselves on the dance floor any day. Mandala serves both local and foreign beverages. There’s a nearby grill and restaurant in case one needs to ‘fuel up’ during the night.

Bar A
Bar A differs from other night spots on this list in that it is open both day and night. Bar A consists of both an indoor bar and an outdoor bar. Those who want to enjoy themselves on the dance floor will have to go indoors. However, those who just want to chill while enjoying their drinks will best do so outside where there are large gazebos. Apart from the bar, Bar A also has a restaurant that serves delicate cuisine.

The Wonder Bar
For the real American experience, visitors to New Jersey must visit The Wonder Bar. The Wonder Bar does not open every day but when it does, you can expect to live your life to the fullest in the few hours that you will be inside. The dance floor of this stunning bar accommodates over 2000 patrons and only blues, rock and roots music is played here.

Edgewood Country Club

Newly Engaged? Visit Edgewood Country Club!

Did you become a newly engaged #HipNJ couple this holiday season? You’re not alone – according to WeddingWire.com, 40% of all engagements occur between Thanksgiving and Valentines Day. This, coupled with the fact that engagement periods are getting shorter than in generations past, means the competition is fierce for your dream date and venue.

#HipNJ suggests you make an appointment sooner rather than later to visit one of the Garden State’s premier wedding spots: Edgewood Country Club in River Vale!

Candice Timmerman, event coordinator of Edgewood Country Club, stopped by the #HipNJ studio to chat with our Lisa Marie Latino about the club’s brand-new modern amenities.

Edgewood Country Club, founded in 1956 on the grounds of two former pre-Revolutionary War farmsteads that were later converted into a country manor estate, offers distinctive facilities in a warm, but sophisticated, setting. The club’s jewel is an impeccably-maintained, 27-hole golf course, staffed by PGA-certified golf professionals. It also boasts one of New Jersey’s largest heated swimming pools, a cardio and strength training fitness facility, and a newly decorated clubhouse for both member and non-member dining and special events.

The clubhouse, which offers fine dining and gracious service, is host to many events such as weddings, golf outings, banquets, bar/bat mitzvahs and other parties for up to 400 guests.

In 2017, Edgewood Country Club completed a full-scale renovation and enhancement project, which only added to the property’s beauty and charm.

“I think Edgewood encompasses a lot of what today’s young couples are looking for,” explained Candice. “As it is very modern but elegant. A lot of couple tells me it very much reminds them of the color schemes of their own apartments…so it’s very much the right feel for the engaged today.”

Candice also explains how couples can truly make their special day their own- no “cookie cutter” packages here!
