Another cool bar and restaurant has opened in Jersey City! Pet Shop is the new neighborhood hot-spot that has everything you need: a jukebox, great drinks, food, an attentive staff, a photo booth and monthly events. This is a unique bar because it serves mostly vegetarian dishes. At Pet Shop, you’ll find Portobello fingers (parmesan breadcrumb crusted portabella strips served with honey mustard and red pepper aioli), cheese plates, poutine, lentil salad, cauliflower parm, and more.
The inside of Pet Shop is cozy and during the warmer months you can enjoy their outside area. Wine lovers will also be happy to hear that they serve delicious red, white, and sparkling wines; they even added a wine bar in their basement! During the winter, we suggest their Pinot Nero (cherries, earthy taste at $12.00) or the Monastell ‘Joven’ Vina (dried blackberries at $9.00). If you’re a beer lover, don’t worry, they have some great choices such as the Morning Glory (IPA) and the Matthias (Amber Ale) from Italy. Pet Shop is owned and operated by long-time Jersey City locals so they know exactly what Jersey City residents are looking for. This month, Seinfeld fans can look forward to Seinfeld Trivia night on January 24th.
9C Tavern is also a popular neighborhood bar which just reopened this month. They serve healthy options such as homemade hummus, veggie burgers and much more. 9C is known for their inexpensive drinks and great staff. Brunch lovers will want to try their “Bloody Irishman” which is a classic Bloody Mary topped with Guinness and candied bacon, phew!
