New Contributor Alert - Have a Night JC!
At Have A Night, we strive to bring the best nightlife options and overall happenings to our community. We have teamed up with Growing in Jersey City to bring you a monthly feature showcasing our hand picked “Happy Hour of the Month.” This month’s choice is Brightside Tavern!
Brightside Tavern is located in Historic Downtown at 141 Bright St. It was opened in 2011 by the former owner of Tommy 2 Scoops Ice Cream shop in Paulus Hook. According to nj.com it is "The quintessential neighborhood bar/restaurant, Brightside is at home in the century-old building owner Tom Parisi historically restored. The dark wood dining room is filled with soft, filtered sunlight, and everyone sitting at the bar is having a good time."
The spacious location is great for groups features two floors, a private event room, and some great happenings throughout the week! The Founder of Growing in Jersey City, Jenna, would come here every week when she played ZogSports in Jersey City.
Brightside features Happy Hour Monday - Friday from 3pm-7pm that includes $1 off drafts, $5 well drinks and $5 house wines. In addition to their Happy Hour, they feature daily specials and entertainment including Comedy Night every other Wednesday, live jazz on Monday nights, and Karaoke every Thursday night.
Also keeping you entertained all night long is their upstairs area that features bar games such as ping pong and shuffleboard. (Growing in Jersey City had no idea that had an upstairs) There is not a dull time to be had no matter what day of the week it is.
If you’re not a Happy Hour fan, they also offer a great brunch every day that includes a meal with 3 Mimosas or Bloody Marys for just $20.
