The Best Places for Happy Hour in Jersey City

Vanessa Vanacore

Let’s be real, a solid happy hour is needed after the year we’ve all had.

And while there are countless bars and restaurants in Jersey City to grab a cocktail, sometimes you don’t want it to break the bank.

Therefore, we’ve put together a list of the absolute best spots to grab a happy hour drink.

1. Franklin Social | 292 Barrow St, Jersey City, NJ 07302

The Franklin Social is tucked away from the busier streets of Jersey City, yet still conveniently located downtown. This bar offers a more modern take on the American tavern experience and their cocktails are inspired by the colonial drinking culture. Their happy hour includes discounted beers, wines, and cocktails and goes from 4pm-7pm for all of us who actually have to commute.
