Roll Out The Red Carpet 200 Lounge Arrives in Style

Filed under: 200 Lounge — Tags: , , — Ashleigh @ 7:30 AM



Roll out the red carpet, Hoboken—200 Lounge has arrived. Friday evening, the red ribbon was officially cut and 200 Lounge opened its doors to the public. With an all exclusive side-entrance elevator bringing you directly up to the club’s top floor, the moment you step inside you are greeted with the nightlife straight from a Hollywood movie.

The lounge is covered in smooth Italian leather and chic décor. Multi-colored laser lights were moving with the music as everyone crowded the dance floor. Cocktail waitresses approached patrons offering them shots of Bubblegum and Root beer flavored vodka, all the while chilled bottles of Grey Goose sat on every table with an assortment of mixers and energy drinks.

Owner Jerry Dinatale wanted to create a popular night club that did not give the vibe of your average bar.


“200 Lounge is based upon my experience in New York City,” Dinatale says. “We’re not a bar. We won’t ever be a bar,”

Every Thursday night from 8-10pm Danny Aiello will have a comedy show featuring well-known comedians. After 10pm, the lounge will serve as a night club with state of the art music and seven different laser lights.

Due to some of the best promoters from New York and Atlantic City, Friday and Saturday nights celebrities will make appearances, such as Tracy DiMarco from Jerseylicious. DiMarco showed Friday night with some of her crew for the ribbon cutting and some drinks on the dance floor. She will be returning November 13th to celebrate her birthday.

Dinatale continues, “We give you excitement, we give you something, it’s not just a DJ off the street,”

This lounge is proud to provide its patrons with spectacular bottle service for about $150 cheaper than other bottle services in Hoboken.


“We want people to come here and have fun and not wake up the next morning and say ‘Oh my god. How did I spend $3000?’,” says Dinatale. “You can come here, have fun, and see a real show and eat,”

Not only is this THE place to party, but 200 Lounge also is serving up some fantastic and exotic food in its late-night menu.

“It’s great, we spent a lot of time on that,’ Dinatale says. “We wanted something totally different.”

The menu has an assortment of Hot and cold antipastos, other succulent appetizers, entrees such as veal, and authentic Italian desserts.

The music is trendy, the drinks are cold, and most importantly the prices are unbeatable. 200 Lounge has made its mark and delivers you New York entertainment in your own neighborhood.

“Everything that I got in here is something nobody has,” Dinatale says.

Affordable Apps, Trendy Tapas & Creative Cocktails at Nine

Filed under: bars and nightlife,Restaurants — Tags: , , , — Kristen Depken @ 8:00 PM

Coconut Shrimp

Creative cocktails? Check. Light fare that is a bit more exotic than your standard pub grub? Check. How about indoor and outdoor seating with an upscale, lounge-like feel? Check again. If you’re in the mood for all of the above, then you’ll definitely want to head to Nine on Washington between 3rd and 4th.

Cleverly named after the sum of the digits in its address (333 Washington St.), Nine is a self-proclaimed tapas lounge and martini bar. With specialty drinks like pineapple and passion fruit mojitos, grapetinis, and cucumber ginger cocktails alongside Caribbean Asian fusion fare like scallop and chorizo skewers, crispy coconut shrimp, and chicken and jalapeno croquettes, Nine is like the sophisticated older sister of all the beer-and-burger bars on Washington.

 But while Nine’s atmosphere may be on the trendy side, its prices are not. Most tapas items are $12 or under, and most specialty drinks are $10. Plus, all margaritas are half-price Tuesday through Friday from 5 to 10 p.m.

 Here are some of my favorites from a recent visit:

  • Chicken Satay with spicy peanut sauce
  • Vegetable dumplings with sweet ponzu sauce
  • Avocado spring rolls with a tangy dipping sauce
  • Cadillac margaritas with Grand Marnier and orange juice
