New Jersey’s second-largest city is recognized as one of the best places to live for diversity and city amenities. This spring and summer, Jersey City gay bars will more than double. Two new LGBT establishments will make a stronger case for the city as a great LGBT “best place to live.”
The Royal, 100 York Street, Jersey City

Club Six26, 128 Christopher Columbus Drive, Jersey City, opening this June
Club Six26 will be opening soon at 128 Christopher Columbus Drive. If you are curious where the name comes from — June 26, 2015 is when the Supreme Court decided the constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The huge complex is still under construction. But when finished, its facade will feature a full wall of windows. The venue also features a large rooftop bar area with a panoramic view of Jersey City. It is expected to open by June 2018.
