Wild Moose Saloon located at 30 Newark Street is popular with local country music fans, but it has been closed for the past year due to the pandemic. Regulars have been left wondering if it was shutting down for good like many other beloved businesses in the area. It turns out that Wild Moose is not shutting down, in fact, it will be reopening Friday, June 4th. Read on to learn what we know about the grand reopening of Wild Moose Saloon in Hoboken — as well as some of its new plans in the space.
As one of Hoboken’s only country bars, the Wild Moose has been a popular hangout spot every night of the week in the past. The downtown bar has announced via Instagram that it will be reopening its doors on June 4th from 4PM to close with no cover fee.

To kick-off the reopening, the saloon will have @djdrusso, @deejaybigcountry, and live music performances through Saturday. The grand reopening specials include $5 beers and $3 green tea shots from 6PM-9PM.
The unique part of the reopening is that Wild Moose will be taking over the bottom level of Birch, its sister business and next door neighbor. This new additional space isn’t open to the public just yet — but will be in the coming weeks.
The latest New Jersey reopening policies for bars and restaurants include opening at full capacity indoors and outdoors. Establishments do not need to limit occupancy to a number that ensures all individuals or groups can remain six feet apart. Customers can be seated at the bar.
Under Executive Order No. 242, the State no longer requires face coverings for most indoor public spaces, however, businesses may continue to require face coverings for employees, customers, and guests.
