Jersey City celebrates “big time” as Six26 opens New Year’s Eve

The long awaited Six26 opens with a New Year’s Eve grand opening. The Jersey City LGBT bar offers a spacious street-level lounge and an upper level roof deck. Party goers will find the kind of spirits, and spirited sophistication, that New Jersey has been waiting for. And it is very easy to find and right in the center of the growing downtown. Six26 is in the center of New Jersey’s hippest, fastest-growing LGBT neighborhood.

Guests will open the doors to Six26 at 128 Columbus Drive in Jersey City and will be intrigued by the sounds of the DJ, or they can make their way to the stage to check out the upcoming schedule of live performers. The promoters say that Six26 will generate the vibe of the most desirable party destinations. The Jersey City LGBT bar has a sleek and polished modern design, a welcoming atmosphere, well-trained staff, and an “elevated approach” to food and drink. Six26 will present a regularly curated display of local artists’ work too.

The bar will accommodate 24, with room for 120 more guests at surrounding tables. A stairway will lead guests to Six26’s rooftop space during good weather. There you may sip a cocktail at the rooftop bar and enjoy the warming sun in spring or toast the sunset. There’s a full kitchen on the rooftop and guests can even relax and dine at a table or lounge under shady trees later in 2019. In the evening take a seat on a swing surrounding a crackling fire pit. Opening when weather permits, the Jersey City LGBT bar Six26 rooftop will be a breathtaking party environment, unlike any other in the NJ/NY metro area said the owners.

Upstairs and down, Six26 promises to entice with your favorite craft beers — even local brews — and a thoughtfully selected wine list. The menu at Six26 will take an elevated, light approach to bar snacking. It features a raw bar with daily selections.

So, how did Six 26 get its name?

On June 26, 2015, Marriage Equality was recognized by the U.S. Supreme Court —  culmination years of hard work and struggle for the LGBT community. So, the owners thought it fitting that Jersey City’s newest LGBT destination should honor that day. The name Six26 expresses this. The Jersey City LGBT bar intends to be an integral part of the LGBT community. It will be proud, welcoming, inclusive and forthright they said. They are sure it will be a magnet for scene-weary travelers from New York and elsewhere. A place to chill, to drink, to dine, be entertained, a meeting place and an event space all under one roof — and on a gorgeous rooftop too! And all in New Jersey’s fastest-growing city.
