Hoboken Uptown Liquor Shuffle?

Buzz: Uptown Liquors sold – looking to move

Word on the street is that Uptown Liquors on 14th Street has been sold. That much is known.

Uptown liquors sold in Hoboken NJ - Hoboken Uptown Liquor Shuffle?

Can a liquor license move easily in Hoboken?

However – the new owners (who had involvement with Sparrow Wine) intended to end this establishment, and move to a larger, more modern space over at 1450 Washington (a Toll Brothers property).

But the latest vibe we heard was that there was some difficulty moving the establishment and associated license due to a “500 feet from a school zone” hangup.

Not sure what the current deal is at the moment, but it’s possible that the new owners might just have to stay put in order to continue selling booze. We’ll see what happens over the course of the next year.

It’d be amazing if yet another business closed on this popular street. With the bagel shop owner John sadly passing recently – this stretch of 14th St. would be missing a lot if the liquor store also became vacant.

What do you think?
