There’s nothing that screams spring/summer more than an afternoon at a local outdoor bar. Luckily for us, there are quite a few bars and breweries that have rooftops and expansive outdoor spaces to enjoy good weather and craft beer – the best of both worlds! Now that the frigid weather has let up, we’re compiling all of the outdoor bars, lounges, rooftops, and breweries in Hoboken and Jersey City that you can visit this spring and summer.

Disclaimer: These are just some of the bars that have responded to inquiries about opening dates or that are already open. We’ll be updating this list, so be sure to email hello@hobokengirl.com if you have an addition!

The rooftop is no exception, it’s spacious but does get packed pretty quickly because it’s such a gem.

Departed Soles Brewing Co. | 150 Bay Street, #2a, Jersey City

The brewery works in tandem with many neighborhood businesses to host pretty unique collabs, one of the things that makes this spot so great. It also has one of the most unique outdoor dining setups in town when it is happening.

Iron Monkey | 99 Greene Street, Jersey City

Iron Monkey, one of the few and longest-running rooftop bars in the city, boasts an extensive craft draft beer menu. As its name suggests, the bar is monkey-themed and has a fun overall vibe – especially during the holidays. It was founded in 1995, a true cornerstone in the community.

Pier 13 | 1301 Sinatra Drive

Porta | 135 Newark Avenue, Jersey City
