Jack’s Cabin

Jack’s Cabin – “Block 14″ in Hoboken, NJ

Jack's Cabin Hoboken NJ coming soonWhat has long been referred to in Hoboken as the “downtown steakhouse” finally has a name: Jack’s Cabin.

While this is considered to be a “welcome addition” for many residents in the 4th Ward, please be reminded that this corner (“block 14″) was originally supposed to be part of a vibrant 6-acre park in the Southwest Hoboken. This political football has morphed into bucket of bile over the past eight years. The current “football” is in the shape of a dusty < 1 acre parking lot that will be your dangling carrot for several years to come.

There is a LOT of history about this “block” on Hoboken411 – see the following updates to get up to speed:

Regardless – as it stands, we still wish Jack’s Cabin the best of luck being in the middle of a hotly contested (and flooded) area of Hoboken.

Legal Beans – Gone

Legal Beans closes “brick and mortar” in Hoboken, NJ {still delivers}

Well, it looks like being on the “doomed corner” of Newark & Garden finally did it in for Legal Beans, who closed shop for good – even after successfully re-opening after Hurricane Sandy – and expanding into the tasty BBQ business.

Note that Legal Beans has locations in Jersey City – and will continue servicing Hoboken with food delivery.

I think the only business that might be able to survive on this drenched corner would be a place like the Hoboken Dive Center.

Louise & Jerry’s

Louise & Jerry’s in Hoboken, NJ renovates

Louise & Jerry’s is one of the last remaining “dive bars” in Hoboken. Now they’re under renovation.

Owner Anthony Romano hopes to re-open quickly, but expect this to take until mid- to late-August at least.

Hopefully it remains a dive bar and doesn’t turn into a tool-magnet.

Blo It Out Lounge

Blo It Out Lounge coming to 1212 Washington Street

BLO IT OUT LOUNGE COMING SOON HOBOKEN NJHere we go again. This is certainly one of the current trends here in Hoboken. Blo It Out Lounge (or Blo-it-out Lounge) is coming to the old Jonathan Marx Optician spot at 1212 Washington Street.

I can say this is the current trend with accuracy because last year this time – there were NO “blow out” establishments in Hoboken. This will make the THIRD one in less than a year. The Blowout Zone, and Up and Out are the other two that recently opened.

I guess it’s hard to argue with a trend if people are willing to pay for the services. They’re just filling a niche.

Hmmm. Wonder what other aspects of the “laziness of modern humans” we can financially take advantage of next? Tooth brushing? Sex?

McLoone’s Pier House

McLoone’s Pier House almost ready in Hoboken

It doesn’t look ready from the outside, but apparently the work going on over at McLoone’s Pier House uptown at 13th & Shipyard – is just “final touches.”

Word on the street is that they could be open as early as this weekend. Remember, go easy on a restaurant when they first open!

Bahama Mama’s

Bahama Mama Night Club Redux?

Back in the day when Hoboken was more of a bona fide nightlife “hot spot,” Bahama Mama’s used to be “poppin” every time we went there. This was, of course back in the 90′s – when there were truly “destination” bars that people would come visit from all over the state.

Over time, those hot spots kind of “averaged out” here in town. And for at least the past 10 years, “it wasn’t what it used to be” is the best way I can describe this once-upon-a-time staple of the mile square nightlife scene.

And now look at the place! Looks doomed from this angle – but word is that they might be going through a remodel (maybe with a new name?)
