City Bistro

Over at City Bistro, there’s great food and drink, and their rooftop party is always just getting started. Located only a few blocks away from the waterfront, City Bistro is a go-to spot for outdoor hangs when the weather is right.

The Dub Pub

A popular local watering hole, The Dub Pub is a multi-story venue complete with a scenic rooftop bar. People flock to The Dub Pub for its casual and laid-back atmosphere and in the warmer months, heading up to the rooftop is a great way to escape the crowds.

Skinner’s Loft

Enjoy a craft beer or cocktail at Skinner’s Loft rooftop bar and patio in Jersey City, which like its indoor eating area, is a small and cozy space. With small bistro tables and chairs, greenery in every corner and views of the bustling Newark Ave, it’s a great place to hang out. Hungry? They also have a seasonal menu full of light bites and shared plates.


Porta also serves incredible drinks

The Neapolitan-style pizza at Porta is enough to draw any food and drink lover to this cozy, casual and fun space. However, the thing that keeps them here all night is the rooftop bar that is outfitted with a full-service bar and pizza kitchen so you can drink outdoors with friends.

Rooftop at Exchange Place

Exchange Place is known for its luxury high-rise apartments, top-notch waterfront location and a swanky interior. Its rooftop bar? Well, that’s no exception. Aptly named RoofTop at Exchange Place, this newly-opened bar features all the best this neighborhood has to often, plus, handcrafted cocktails, flavorful dishes and that view.
