Unique Cocktails in NJ
Just looking to see if anyone has recommendations or even knows of any bars/restaurants/lounges that offer unique and/or traditional cocktails in NJ. I know I could go to Death & Co (E.Village) or the Clover Club (Brooklyn), but I would like to know about places that are local.
Maybe barrel aged cocktails, Sidecars, home made bitters & ingredients, something along those lines.
I love this place in Houston, Anvil Bar & Refuge, really cool place, each bartender gets his own station and they make precise unique drinks. They're trying to preserve the concept of the cocktail
I don't know if it's quite there, but I was impressed by what I saw at Bar Cara (Bloomfield) recently...

Not sure where your located but here are a couple you might like in Jersey City. Bar Majestic has nice cocktails and drinks, also has an interesting wine list.
LITM is a bit different, combining art and alcohol :) Fun drinks, less interesting wine list.
If you're talking about going out in the City then this is certainly a hike for you... But if you ever find yourself over in the New Brunswick area definitely check out the bar at Catherine Lombardi. They do it the right way, I can assure you that. Also, if you're ever in the Princeton area Elements has a very interesting cocktail list. The only problem there is that they don't have much of a bar (only 4 stools), it's more of a 4-star restaurant that serves interesting drinks.
