It’s been over two years since the beloved Hoboken spot, The Dubliner, closed its doors at 96 River Street. We now know who the new owners are and what the vision is for the space. The new owners plan to open the space in spring 2023, but The Hoboken Girl was able to chat exclusively with the team behind the new restaurant — which will be called Metropolis — and learn more about what’s to come. Read on for what we know.

About The Space

The Dubliner was one of the few spaces in Hoboken with a rooftop, and the new restaurant will continue to utilize this outdoor space. The three-story building located at 96 Hudson Street is a short walk from the Hoboken PATH Station, which made it a popular destination, especially for the post-work crowd. Metropolis, however, not only plans to provide a great space for watching sports, but will also include a full restaurant, a wine + cocktail bar, and a spot for rooftop brunch.

What To Expect

The new owner of the space is Amine Chenguiti, who is no stranger to the Hoboken restaurant and bar scene. Amine is also the owner of Belo Bar, located at 104 Hudson Street, around the corner from The Dubliner. Amine said “As we already have a successful cocktail bar, I am personally a wine lover and I did not know of a wine bar in the downtown area so what better way to bring that to life than at Metropolis.”

The concept for Metropolis leverages the physical attributes of the space to play up its offerings. Even though the space is being renovated to match the new concept, the team plans to include the traditional architectural elements that make the building unique to Hoboken. The first floor will be a traditional, sit-down restaurant + wine bar. The greenhouse-style section walled with windows will be a special seating area, where diners can overlook the streets of Hoboken. The menu on the first floor will offer pasta, chicken, meat, and seafood in addition to a full bar.

The second floor will be more of a laid-back vibe. There will be big TVs for sports, cozy loveseats, and live entertainment weekly. The food menu on the second floor will be elevated bar food including wings, dips, + more.

The rooftop at Metropolis will be open year-round and the team plans to go all out with seasonal decorations. The team plans to provide an incredible brunch on the roof. While details are still being finalized, diners can anticipate a creative menu plus champagne specials.

On the first floor, Metropolis will have a next-level wine list. We’re told patrons will be able to find wines here that can’t be found elsewhere in Hoboken alongside a full bar with cocktails. The team plans to open in Spring 2023.
