New Cocktail Bar Makes It’s Way to Jersey CityBY Editor, December 23, 2015
Newark Avenue has a new business to celebrate! The Archer, a new cocktail bar which opened its doors to Jersey City December 10th now resides just a few minutes down the road from Liberty Towers!
Their menu, which is a little unique compared to other cocktail bars, has many options of all different dishes to choose from. Some of the food items that are featured include Burger Sliders, Spicy Elk Meatballs, Duck Poutine, Bison Short Rib and Wild Boar Sloppy Joe’s. If the meat options don’t make your mouth water, main entrees that are meat free and served are The Archer Grilled Cheese as well as the Mushroom and Kale dish– to name just a few! The menu is very diverse to meet special dietary needs or preferences. There are vegetarian and vegan options featured in the entrees section and their small bites portion of their menu, to cater to all Jersey City residents and visitors. A full food menu can be found here.
Of course cocktails and drinks are a huge part of The Archer’s menu. Seasonal winter drinks include Bijou which mixes gin, sweet vermouth, green chartreuse, and orange bitters. The Navy Grog features demerara rum, Puerto Rican rum, Jamaican rum, lime, grapefruit, and honey. There are also several house specialties which are semi-permanent to their menu so you can easily pick your favorite and know it will always be there! Their main bourbon drink, Going Out West, is made of cardamaro, lemon, honey, mint, cranberry bitters with of course bourbon. The full list of drink options is available to view on the drink menu on their website.
The Archer is now open so make sure to stop by this December! The decor is a nice change from the city life giving off an urban edge, but also with a mix of the outdoors. Inside you can look forward to a beautiful fireplace and rustic wood accents. Their hours are Tuesday-Saturday from 5pm until “late” according to their website.
