Mills Tavern Open in Hoboken After Major Renovation

The former site of the Whiskey Bar is now Mills Tavern in Hoboken and will try to capitalize on the more upscale sports bar trend that has hit Hoboken by storm in the last few years. Joining Black Bear, Texas Arizona, 4 Ls, Wicked Wolf Tavern, McSwiggans, Village Pourhouse, and 1 Republik just to name a few recently added or renovated sports bars, Mills Tavern is in what should be an ideal location to capitalize on the foot traffic from weekend visitors and weekday commuters off the PATH alike.

Mills Tavern Hoboken exterior

Some residents may lament the absence of the live music that the Whiskey Bar brought to the stage Thursdays through Saturdays but the owners obviously thought it was time to renovate and keep up with the current up-scaling of Hoboken establishments. I spoke with owner David Jaycee and this is one of four establishments he is now at least part owner of. They include Black Bear Bar, Bahama Mama’s Arthur’s and now Mills Tavern. David graciously gave TheBoken.com a tour of the place. As part of the full building renovation the 2nd floor apartment that was there was eliminated and is now a 2nd floor bar area that even has some lounge space. The space is very large with ample TVs and selection of about 20 tap beers. There are three separate bars altogether and the theme is Americana throughout with salvaged signs and tables made from re-purposed wood.

Here are more photos below:

They even have a limited bar menu that includes fried pickles shown above. The pickles were tasty and I also liked the angry burger which was well prepared but a bit on the smallish side. Overall, the price points for the bar menu are very reasonable as well as the drinks . Here is wishing this new Hoboken establishment the best of luck.

Update 8/27/2013: On a subsequent visit I tried their double burger and thought that was a good value. The freshly cut french fries are also flavorful and fresh.

Finally, work has begun at 420 Washington Street after the Spirit Halloween popup store packed up after their seasonal sales. The store is now being gutted perhaps for a new tenant which was at one time rumored to be Anthropologie.

Those are the updates for now. If you have any more tips and would like to share please send email to TheBoken@gmail.com.
