New Year’s Eve 2013 in Hoboken

No cover New Year’s 2013 options in Hoboken, NJ

Well – tonight’s the night most of us will be ringing in the new year somewhere!

For those who missed out on your all-inclusive open bar RSVP’s – don’t fret! Below are a few NO COVER bars you can head out to tonight. Most are cash-per-drink, and you might very well also be able to buy a full bottle of champagne if that’s your style.

And don’t forget – we got a lucky “treat” from the Port Authority! The PATH is running continually tonight to schlep puke-filled revelers back and forth under the Hudson river! Makes you wonder why they just don’t keep it 24 hours from now on.

Take the poll and see many others after the jump…

Hoboken New Years Eve 2013 Options

Liberty Bar – No Cover – Cash Bar – Drink Specials

Just walk in and order your drinks without the hassle of a wrist band over at Liberty Bar (14th between Hudson & Washington.)

Plus they have the following specials: $5 Captain Morgan, $5 Bombay and $5 house vodka drinks – plus $3 drafts of Miller Light. And when the clock strikes midnight – enjoy a free champagne toast!

Hotel Victor – No Cover – Cash Bar – Free Buffet

Same goes for Hotel Victor downtown (Hudson St. & Hudson Place).

Besides the very well done renovation (post Hobson’s), you’ll find an unpretentious crowd in this joint.

Plus it’s great for people-watching with the PATH terminal steps away. But you’ll also be interested in the FREE BUFFET, too. Definitely one of the better “bar food” places in Hoboken.

Maxwell’s – No Cover – DJ Music – Cash Bar

Last but not least – you can head over to Maxwell’s (11th & Washington), where they’re having their “Rockin’ & Rollin’ Ass Kickin’ New Year’s Eve Dance Party” starting at 9pm tonight.

Nothing fancy, just a cash bar, owner Todd Ambramson spinning records, and no cover. And I bet they don’t even care what you wear!

Have a great New Year, everyone!
