On Thursday July 28th, Hoboken’s newest bar “Cooper’s Union” opened its doors for the first time to a packed crowd and it appears Hoboken now has another “winner” creation thanks to co-owner Patrick Walsh. Located at 104 Hudson Street in the Mile Square city, Cooper’s Union replaces the short lived McCarthy’s.
On Thursday night the doors opened for the first time and allowed local residents to sample the bars beer and cocktail list all carte blanche from 7pm-9pm. Co-Owner Patrick Walsh, formerly of McSwiggan’s was operating behind the bar as both owner and bartender along with several members of his staff. By 8:30 pm, one could not walk 15 feet in a minute due to the overwhelming welcome of local patrons. In attendance were the infamous motorcycle club The Nam Knights, a bike club that consists of police officers who once served in the Vietnam war. In addition many local bar and restaurant employees were seen out and about enjoying the new hot spot.
Unlike McCarthy’s, Cooper’s Union will utilize its kitchen to offer its customers fare. Introduced last night were several samplings of yummy, delicious treats all available for future purchase. Cornation Chicken was made available and I personally consider it “irresistible”.
Draught beers are offered in both pint and stein sizes and all mixed drinks are supported by both well and call liquors.
Hoboken has another bar and this time it appears to be a major player in the local Hoboken bar scene. Definitely worth checking out.
