As the warm weather approaches, there is nothing like having a couple of drinks with brunch. And when you’re looking to keep the party going from the night before, a party brunch is an extra fun way to spend the morning. A party brunch is a brunch with nightclub vibes, often coming with loud music, drink specials, and dancing. Any city-goers might fondly recall Bagatelle’s hardcore party brunch, where the lights would go off and everyone would dance on tables. For those missing the NYC Bagatelle experience, we’ve rounded up fun brunch spots with music, DJs, and an otherwise fun party vibe to help scratch that itch. Read on for a list of some of the party brunches in Hoboken and Jersey City.

If there is a place to attend brunch, it’s Birch. This is the spot to go if you want to feel like you’re at a club at noon in Hoboken. From 12PM – 4PM, you can get an unlimited buffet and ‘race the clock’ mimosas during its boozy brunch party. On Saturday, June 18th, Birch is also featuring a ‘Drag Me to Brunch’ party and show with performances by Octavia Anyae, Crystal Envy, and Scarlet Envy. Make sure to get reservations to ensure a place at this vibrant party brunch spot.
Halifax | 225 River Street, Hoboken
If you’re looking for a combination of class and boozy vibes, then this is the spot to try. Halifax brings the party to each individual table with a brunch option called ‘bubbles brunch,’ which includes unlimited small plates and one bottle of sparkling wine per person for $46. With stunning views of the city and an Instagrammable aesthetic, you’ll be sure to love this classic Hoboken brunch gem.
Hudson Table | 1403 Clinton Street, Hoboken
For more of an unusual and unique option, Hudson Table occasionally has fun family-style meals on the roof with live music. On June 19th, Hudson Table is featuring a live performance from musician James Calleo on the rooftop during brunch, 11:30AM – 3:00PM. This event is BYOB, so you can bring whatever kind of booze you love and turn the rooftop into a party. You can check out other events at Hudson Table here.

For more of the classic party experience, Wonderland Brunch is the place to go. It has everything you may want for a day party. A DJ, all day drink specials, bottle service options, and food to keep the balance of boozy and good eats. From 11AM – 8PM (yes, 8PM), you can spend your day here. Bonus if you have a table of 6 or more, you receive a champagne toast on the house.
Porta | 135 Newark Avenue, Jersey City
Residing in a former pharmacy, Porta is a Jersey City staple. It is well known for a lively crowd on the weekends, especially for late-night partying, but it also serves brunch during the day. Though this will be more of a chiller party brunch vibe, Porta has been known to feature live jazz music on Sundays for an upscale party atmosphere. Plus, the best part is you can have pizza for breakfast.
Six26 | 128 Christopher Columbus Drive, Jersey City
If you’re looking for a drag brunch — and who isn’t during Pride Month — this is the place for it. On Saturdays, Six26 hosts Drag Brunch with a show that runs from 2PM – 4PM and even features $3 mimosas. Nothing says a party brunch quite like a drag show. However, be aware that reservations for Drag Brunch are limited and seating occurs at 1PM or 1:30PM.

The Ainsworth brunch is offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 11AM to 4PM. For $45 per person, diners can get continued mimosa service for 90 minutes. To participate in this fun party brunch deal, everyone at the table has to join in to get the special.
The Madison Bar + Grill | 1316 Washington Street, Hoboken
On Sundays from 10:00AM – 3:00PM, The Madison has a brunch buffet for $31 per person which comes with a bloody Mary or mimosa. The Madison has also been known to feature live jazz music during brunch to turn the party into a more upscale, classier vibe. Though it doesn’t have an events tab on the website, we recommend calling to find out when live music is on the agenda in the future.
Wicked Wolf | 120 Sinatra Drive, Hoboken
