    The Background

    Piggyback Bar closed on September 30th after two years of servicing Jersey City, but a new bar and lounge has taken its place in the Harborside Atrium, a Mack-Cali Realty property. The Atrium, a waiting area for the transit boats, houses several shops, cafes, and restaurants. Now, Manny’s District Lounge will open this fall, bringing a swanky bar and lounge option for locals to grab drinks after work, or sip on a martini while waiting for the next ferry. The official open date to the public is October 23rd at 4:00PM.
