    Written by:

    Sad news in the Mile Square today. The Turtle Club has announced that it is officially closing its doors on August 31st, 2018. The restaurant, located at 930 Park Avenue in Hoboken, has been a neighborhood staple for almost a decade. Read on for the details:

    The owners posted on their Facebook page and Instagram page on Friday:

    After eight incredible years, it is with bittersweet sentiment to share that the Hoboken Turtle Club will open its doors on Friday August 31st for the last time.

    The Hoboken Turtle Club was our first leap into the restaurant industry; as we’ve expanded our family with several properties along the years that has limited the amount of time we’ve been able to spend at the restaurant. Rather than compromise the quality we promise to deliver to each guest, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors.
    It has been our privilege to serve you countless brunch, lunch and dinners, to let loose with you every weekend, to sip wine as part of our Thursday Wine Club and to serve as host of several personal occasions, from birthday parties to bridal showers. We are so grateful to our co-workers, family and friends who have supported us and have made these past eight years unforgettable – we hope to see you one last time.

    In parting, we share a familiar saying, ‘when one door closes, another opens.’ Stay tuned for what’s next.

    Known for its delicious wines, easy bites, happy hours, and 90s dance parties on the weekends, this spot will definitely be missed. Cory is also the owner of Jersey City’s beloved Battello restaurant, which was closed temporarily to undergo construction. It appears that the JC waterfront restaurant will be re-opening this fall, but that is to be determined. We wish them nothing but success.

    • I am so sad to hear the Turtle Club is closing! That was where my (now) husband and I had our very first date on August 28, 2014. Since then, every August we’ve celebrated our date-iversary. That was also the date that my husband proposed to me.

      Turtle Club will be missed!
