Get ready to have some Fat Tuesday fun at South House Bar in Jersey City. Embrace the vintage ambiance and lose yourself on the dance floor while listening to authentic New Orleans tunes. After your night at South House, you will be wishing everyday was Mardi Gras!

Join in on the Mardi Gras fun at QXT’s nightclub in Newark! With free admission all night and $4 dollar drinks until 11 pm you will be dancing until the DJ leaves and drinking until the sun comes up. 

Feel as if your walking the streets of New Orleans in Somers Point at the South Jersey Jazz Society 3rd annual Mardi Gras eventSpend the day winning mascaraed themed competitions, indulging in all the Cajun food you can eat and watching a performance by Zydeco-a-Go-Go.

Thirsty for something frothy, delicious and mildly intoxicating? Expand your horizons and make your taste buds explode with flavors from all around the world. Even if your not much of a beer drinker, Newark’s locals favorite, Redd’s Biergarten, will have a beer that sounds so delicious you’ll have to taste it.

Make Mardi Gras your own at Grasshopper off the Green in Morristown. This Irish pub is cozy, loud and knows how to have a good time. While here, the drinks won’t end, everyone will become your friend (even the waitress!) and the laughs won’t stop.

LSC After Dark

LSC After Dark Celebrates Mardi Gras

Liberty Science Center just threw the hottest Mardi Gras bash in New Jersey, and #HipNJ was there for it all! Check out some highlights from their latest LSC After Dark event.

Upon walking in, you were made to feel like you were on Bourbon Street. The Hungry March Band, a legendary street bass march band from NYC that has previously played at Mardi Gras, got the crowd going with their energetic tunes (and copious amounts of beads!)

The Hungry March Band transformed Jersey City to New Orleans.

DJ Dprizzy kept the good vibes going, while party-goers decked out in green and purple beads danced the night away. After burning up an appetite, there were plenty of food selections for attendees to choose from, including Waffle It and Co, Yani’s Bake House, Luke’s Empanadas, Mozzarepas, Under the Bun Burgers & BBQ, Cryo Cream, Sisig City, Guac Spot, and The French Quarter.

The night’s highlight would have to be the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium. Guests sat back and explored the stars and beyond for the debut of LSC’s newest planetarium show, Lovers of the Cosmos LIVE! The experience included dazzling special affects that made you feel as if you were really traveling through space.

Travel to parts unknown at the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium!
