These Local Bars Are The Perfect Hangouts for Thanksgiving Eve


Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes may be a Thanksgiving Day tradition, but there’s another tradition for Thanksgiving Eve – grabbing a drink (or two!) at your favorite local bars to relax before the big day. 

In Jersey City, we have a ton of bars to choose from, including everything from swanky cocktail bars to casual pubs. Choose the one that fits your mood and pick up anything from a cold beer to a fine glass of wine on Nov. 25!

Corkscrew Bar, located at 61 Congress St, Jersey City which is 11 minutes from your Beacon apartment, is an easygoing tavern pairing draft beer and cocktails with burgers and pub fare in a simple space with TVs.

Established in 1976, the Corkscrew Bar has been around for over 40 years, evolving and changing with the community. They’re known for their delicious burgers and wings, local beer, refreshing drinks, sports, trivia, live music and more. It’s many locals’ home away from home!

Lucky 7 Tavern, located at 322 2nd St, Jersey City which is eight minutes from your Beacon apartment, is a popular, dimly lit joint offering a wide range of whiskeys, BBQ, bar bites, DJs and a jukebox.

Lucky 7 Tavern has been a fixture in downtown Jersey City for years. People fill into Lucky’s to have a drink and enjoy excellent bar food including authentic Southern BBQ.
