Maggie’s Place

4/7/2008:

Anyone ever hang out at “the bar formerly known as El Cuatro Bar?”

This large space is currently up for sale (I think it’s in the high 1MM’s.) I had stopped by there a few months ago, and never got around to updating the entry.. They had cheap beer (and cheap everything else), but it wasn’t that horrible. Quiet and pretty much like the dive bars 10 years ago used to be.

Certainly would be nice if someone bought Maggie’s Place and spruced it up a bit… What do you think the building is worth in this market? Beers most likely wouldn’t be 3 bucks anymore, that’s for sure.

something went down at Maggie’s Place around midnight last night…4 police cars (totaling 8 cops, from what I could see) and a whole lotta commotion. A woman screaming in spanish about her father?? All I know is: 1) someone was definitely taken away in handcuffs and 2) Hoboken cops really like to speed while driving, even when they have limited space in which to do so

[quote comment=”76982″]A bar in that location almost HAS to remain a neighborhood bar, though. No one who doesn’t live in the area is going to drag their ass to Jefferson between Newark and 1st, especially because there’s not much else around there — just the soon-to-be-renamed Quiet Woman.[/quote]

the bar also draws some rowdy crowds. i live in the front of the building (we determined we lived in the same building right?) so i hear the noise. the double parking is a problem for sure. i don’t know why cops just don’t drive down our street and ticket away on evenings.

definitely agree doesn’t need ‘sprucing up’ as that would mean the prices would get ‘spruced up’ too.

I agre[quote comment=”76881″]I will miss El Cuatro. I was only there a couple of times for parties, and Enrique and his staff were always great. The guys playing dominoes was a slice old Hoboken. I wonder where those regulars will go now.[/quote]

I agree. I like the place and the people who run it. The only bad thing is the entire block of double-parked cars, but again, I don’t blame the bar for that.
