Louise & Jerry’s set to re-open in Hoboken
Almost two months since closing for renovations, Louise & Jerry’s at 329 Washington Street is almost set to open up again. One day next week, you’ll get to enjoy an ice-cold drink in a comfortable and relatively unpretentious watering hole again.
Some locals were a bit nervous that “L&J’s” would become “tool-infested,” and lose it’s charming Hoboken “dive bar” characteristics. But due to many age-related structural concerns, building codes, and other reasons, it was no-doubt time to spruce the joint up.
With beautiful exposed brick, and a custom-built mahogany bar, L&J’s still has a welcoming feel. A few flat tv’s, an upgraded pool table, energy-efficient LED lighting, improved HVAC are all positive changes to the Hoboken staple which has been part of the community for well over five decades.
Others missed the “old school” CD jukebox, and were concerned with the “web connected” digital player. But apparently you can still request any classic songs to be included in the choices, and bartenders can over-ride the device if some musically-challenged idiot decides to play $20 worth of Katy Perry songs.
Welcome back, L&J’s!
