This is definitely a place to go to for those who love the kind of music offered by these bands.

Meanwhile, casual nights out can also be experienced at the Whiskey Bar, still with its DJ spinners on Thursdays and live bands on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Fridays. A great spot for dancing, this place draws in Hoboken professionals and baby boomers.
