As a late twenty-something living in Northern Bergen the harder I look for a bar that's not a throwback to college, the more I believe it doesn't exist.
I am seeking a place I can go for a drink and meet someone my age but not have to shout just to get his/her name. Maybe a place with decent food (but not necessarily).
Regardless, I've seen my share of awful Jersey bars over the years. I did the Nyack bar scene for several years as well and was never impressed. So does a "grown up" bar that appeals to the late twenties/early thirties set exist around here?
