A bar and restaurant known for redefining mixology with its craft cocktails, Jersey Social, recently closed at the end of March at 837 Jersey Avenue on the ground floor of the Cast Iron Lofts. Now, we know that a new restaurant — named The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar — will open today at 4PM in the space. The new spot describes itself as “a neighborhood place” with “upscale, eclectic cuisine”. Read on for what we know about The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar opening in Jersey City, NJ.

What We Know About The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar

Details are slim about The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar as of now, but a HG reader pointed out a sign in the elevator of the Cast Iron Lofts building this past Sunday that revealed a grand opening date and time of Tuesday, May 14th at 4PM. See the photo below.

Further investigation revealed a private Instagram account for the business @thehoreshoejc, as well as a website, which seems to still be under construction. The Instagram account says that The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar is “a neighborhood place” with “upscale, eclectic cuisine”.

A source close to the restaurant told The Hoboken Girl in early April that the owner of the now-closed Jersey Social is opening a new concept. While we cannot confirm that The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar is this new concept, we have reached out to both Jersey Social and The Horseshoe Kitchen + Bar and will update this piece as we receive more information.

About Jersey Social + Its Closure

Earlier this spring, a sign was pasted on the window of Jersey Social’s Jersey Avenue storefront, which read:

This restaurant from New York-based RB Hospitality Group found a home below the Cast Iron Lofts on the corner of 18th and Jersey Avenue back in 2019. Previously in the space was Brewshot Cafe, owned by Arun Nanda, who partnered with friend and RB Hospitality Group owner Rajesh Bhardwaj to break ground on Jersey Social.

Jersey Social had a chic, intimate feel, decked out with exposed ceilings and modern dim-lit fixtures. The bar featured spacious seating and two televisions to watch the latest games, which didn’t distract from the upscale modern décor. Aside from the high-top seating, there were plenty of table and booth options, and even a private room tucked away to the right of the bar.

Food and drink were at the center of this swanky establishment. From classic drinks to signature specials, the menu did not disappoint.

House-made popcorn was the first thing to hit the table. The menu had a variety of options from shared plates to larger meals, great for those in the mood for a full dinner or just some snacks.

Some of the shared plate options at Jersey Social were cauliflower poppers, shrimp skewers, loaded nachos, and chicken wings. Highlights from the main plates section included burgers, chicken parmesan, roasted salmon, a chicken Caesar wrap, and buffalo chicken pizza, among other dishes. The restaurant’s signature burger, called The Social Burger, was made up of Angus chuck, lettuce, tomato, cheese, caramelized onions, bacon, Social sauce, and fries.
