In the heart of Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District lies the Arts + Powerhouse Building — a historic, century-old warehouse that is currently under redevelopment. The building has over 100,000 square feet of office/retail space, and will soon be home to a few new Jersey City businesses — from NYC-based restaurants to a new fitness spot. While there is still room for even more new businesses in the Arts + Powerhouse Building, we’ve rounded up which ones have been confirmed so far. Read on for more about the five new businesses coming to Jersey City’s Arts + Powerhouse Building, located at 124-134 Bay Street.

The owners of the Jersey City wine shop CoolVines are using their years of experience in the food + drink industry to open a new food hall at 124 Bay Street. Called ‘The Bread Factory Jersey City’ (a homage to the former 19th-century bread factory it’s located in), this spot will be taking over 8,700 square feet in the building and is slated to open in April 2024. The food hall will include numerous street food vendors, two bars, and more, including “a selection of top chefs preparing a selection of epicurean street food,” pairing these gastronomic options with “two bars serving natural wines, full alcohol, and no/low alcohol cocktails,” among other items.

A NYC-based food and drink eatery will also be coming to the ground floor of 124 Bay Street. Daily Provisions, which is run by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (the group that first launched Shake Shack), will be taking over about 3,134 square feet of space in the building, per Jersey Digs. The spot has a primary focus on to-go orders and serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner items — including sandwiches, bakery items like crullers + cookies, soups, and salads, among other dishes. The drink menu includes coffee, tea, lemonade, kombucha, wine, beer, and espresso martinis, among other choices. Daily Provisions currently has five locations in New York City — this will be the eatery’s first New Jersey location.

Han Dynasty is another NYC-based restaurant that has been serving up authentic Sichuan cuisine since 2007. Per the website, the brand’s founder Han Chiang describes the food as “A perfect balance of spice, numbness, saltiness, and flavor.” Menu options vary by location, but some highlights from the menus include cold + hot appetizers like spicy crispy cucumber and dry pepper chicken wings, mixed vegetable tofu soup, lo mein, fried rice, and authentic noodle dishes like spicy beef noodle soup and cold noodles with chili oil. Han Dynasty currently has one other New Jersey location in Cherry Hill, as well as three New York City locations and five Eastern Pennsylvania/Philadelphia area locations. The spot will also be located on the ground floor of the building.

Along with the new restaurants on the ground floor also comes a new workout spot that is no stranger to the fitness scene — Rumble Boxing. Here, participants can expect a 45-minute boxing class split into ten rounds. Each round lasts about three minutes and gym-goers switch between floor exercises and punching series on the heavy bags. Rumble’s Hoboken location opened up in February 2023 at 1201 Shipyard Lane, and there is also an Edgewater location coming soon. Rumble Boxing has multiple New Jersey and NYC locations, as well as many more across the United States.

We first shared the news back in 2021 that NYC-based taco spot ‘Tacombi’ would be coming to Jersey City’s Arts + Powerhouse building. The Mexican restaurant will also be on the ground floor, and will take up about 2,700 square feet of space. Tacombi’s story began by selling Mexican street food in a vintage VW camper bus on the beach in Yucatan, Mexico back in 2005 and has since grown to be the popular Mexican restaurant it is today. The restaurant is known for its beautiful interior design — think bright colors, murals, and major beach vibes — and serves up tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and savory appetizers. Some menu highlights include corn esquites (sweet corn sliced from the cob with cotija cheese, smoky homemade Morita mayo, spicy chili), baja crispy fish tacos, and a la bisteca burrito (sirloin steak with rice, beans, cabbage, spicy escabeche, + salsa) Tacombi currently has locations in New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, and Illinois — this will be its first New Jersey storefront.
