Our Two Cents
Why I never popped into the Star Bar years ago is beyond me.
Star Bar boasts an austere, yet charming facade that is impeccably manicured – complete with the best looking cigarette butt bin I have ever seen. Once you open the door, the feel is quite welcoming. Spots were available at the bar when I visited and the bartender provided friendly acknowledgment. Beer selection here impresses… quite fully. This is Jersey City after all and finding some of the brews that Star Bar stocks at a local liquor store can be a chore. A chalkboard sits above the bar, listing the current beers, wines, spirits and mixed cocktails. One on one seating can be found around the perimeter and at two person high-tops scattered throughout. Trivia consoles and Wii nights round out the fun.
Pity I never knew about this as a commuting stiff all those years as I would have gladly taken the two minute walk from the PATH to get some liquid happy at this beer lover’s oasis.
