11/24/2009 Update:

Room 84 open for business in Hoboken

The former “Bar None” at 84 Washington Street has completed it’s transformation into the newest Hoboken night club & lounge “Room 84.”

With it’s opening this past weekend, reviews have been surprisingly upbeat. The interior looks nice, and the crowds have been improved.

Have you been there yet? If so – please share your observations!

The old Bar None club / lounge at 84 Washington Street hasn’t been sold – but is going through a transformation / renovation instead!

Room 84: A totally new mission objective

Owner Joseph Branco (who also owns Emanuel’s Salon across the street), decided to refresh the basement club into a completely different experience – focusing more on the lounge aspect and “room service” type atmosphere with private tables.

I spoke with the manager Darrell this week – and here’s a bit of what you can expect when the new hangout “Room 84″ opens towards the end of October:

  • Revamped layout – more intimate, with private seating / lounging areas.
  • A new take on “bottle service” – where you can customize your table’s selections to accommodate different tastes.
  • “Media Wall” behind the bar, to display various moving graphic images to suit the mood, season or occasion.
  • Full spectrum LED lighting throughout the bar
  • Improved acoustics that reduce the need to yell at the top of your lungs.
  • An appropriate dress code and cover to weed out the riff-raff.
  • A small private room for rent – for more exclusive gatherings

    FYI, my name is not Joe nor am I the owner of Room84. I left 2 comments, one about the bar opening and hoping I don’t get blasted with flyers in my building lobby and the second comment about my likes and dislikes of the club. If I owned it would I have dislikes?? Would I also say it was too loud to get a drink?? Gee bar owners make money off bar sales. If I owned it I’d be shooting myself in the foot with a comment like that.

    I guess if I wrote a review on Black Bear, 4 Ls, Green Rock, Tutta Pasta, Sushi Longe, Panera Bread, Blimpes, etc. (in my neighborhood) then you would think and claim that I owned those establishments as well. My name is Downton Dude b/c I live Downtown. Sorry I didn’t write back soon enough to defend this bar as you claim, but I was busy working at my real job in the city and having a life! You idiots who post on here need to get a life and stop stalking websites just to get some of the misery off your back. You’re probably the same bunch I had to argue with over an issue with the parks and Hoboken’s enormous budget. Gee since I was defending the parks in town would you clowns now say that I owned Pier A or Sinatra Park?!?!?

    I thought Hoboken 411 forums were for opinions on what we think not pissing matches for people hiding behind names. it’s good to see negative comments on the forum, but a negative comment left by people who never stepped inside is just ignorant. I guess not everybody was raised the same – If you have nothing good to say then don’t say it at all. Especially if you are guessing or assuming.

    If you’d like to know my name then contact the admin of this website and you will plainly see that I’m just another Hoboken resident who discuss local events and happened to check out the Grand Opening.

    As far as Room84 goes, I wish the place the best and might stop in every now and then just for some bar scene diversification even though I’m more of a bar guy.

    And for people who are going to judge establishments in Hoboken please do not be fooled by the statements made by such miserable, negative and pessimistic citizens of Hoboke’s. Some of these people just talk negative about everything and use word of mouth or assumptions to base there opinions. Go to each place yourself and then make an honest, informed opinion.

      Ps…this response is idiotic and poorly scripted.

    Joe Branco / downtown dude …if you had the “life” working in the city and don’t have time to defend the critisism why write a novel in response?….hehe..I just find it pathetic when owners/managers and people involved with an establishment post under a generic name trying to create a buzz for their crappy places. I actually wouldnt have posted at all if it wasnt for you trying to blow yourself to create some hype for your place. Let your managing, marketing and overall operating of the business do the talking for you.

    Wow. And you wonder why they get disgusted with the discourse here… Please bring back the vote up/vote down rating system!

  4. hoboken411 says:

    @homeworld – This type of banter sometimes happens with certain businesses – but rather than focus on that, why not pay Room 84 a visit and share your thoughts?

    Perhaps I should throw the Hoboken411 Four Year Anniversary Party there?

    If some bouncer tells me to go home and put on a shirt with a collar so that I can drink at their location, I’m outta there…

    These are exciting times in the Guido community. Which one of the cast from the Staten Island Bunch or the Bayonne Bunch make an appearance and be the first to get arrested for – fighting, drinking or vandalism?
