143 Social

You have to know where to look to find this stellar cocktail bar in the heart of the city, but once you do, you’ll enter a world defined by boundary-pushing beverages and tasty bites. Gabriel Rieben and Arto Ozgun teamed up to bring JC a bar that isn’t just impressive for New Jersey, but one that would wow no matter where you placed it. The unique menu structure involves nameless drinks that instead don a numerical moniker—The Number Twelve, The Number Twenty-Four and so on. Thematically, 143 Social’s cocktail menu is defined by the seasons and the small plates and homemade bar snacks come to play back up. For cocktail fans and food obsessives alike, 143 Social is a must-try.
