What: Pilsener Haus & Biergarten Grand Opening

Where: Hoboken, New Jersey

When: Friday, July 15

Why: From the folks who brought us Radegast, this new 10,000-square-foot Austro-Hungarian biergarten will feature indoor and outdoor seating in uptown Hoboken, plus 21 taps and 40 types of bottled beers. The Czech owners hope enormous wooden communal tables, high iron-worked windows, oversize vintage photographs and a tiled bar will come together to give the main dining room an authentic old-world feel. Traditional foods like sausages, spatzel and pretzels will also be available for patrons, not to mention plenty of live music.

How to get there: For the most direct route, take the 126 bus from Port Authority to Willow Avenue at 15th Street and walk 3 minutes to the beer garden. Or take the PATH Train to Hoboken then walk 5 minutes to the Newport Hudson-Bergen Light Rail station. Hop the lightrail towards the Tonnelle station, then walk to 1422 Grand Street.

  1. This place has bouncers who are very unprofessional and act like goons, for a guy in his 40s checking IDS for a living, Ive seen them pick and throw around guys half the size, also people need to realize, its a simple concept? 3 bartenders for a crowd of 1000? and people actuallly wait? overrated.

  2. Was anyone at the Hoboken one yesterday? I saw the bouncer put a guy in a choke hold while he was walking out and the police came?  Hoboken has some of the finest young professionals and the cops had to come?  Disgusting if you ask me
