Hudson County has welcomed an upscale new venue. The Ashford, a multilevel restaurant and lounge, is set to become a premier event venue. Conveniently located near Jersey City’s corporate hub along the Hudson River, The Ashford boasts several indoor and outdoor distinct meetings and event spaces, along with Jersey City’s largest rooftop. The Parlor, a speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar located on the restaurant’s third floor, can accommodate 100 people and connects to the rooftop. The Ashford’s rooftop also connects to Six26 Rooftop, an LGBTQ space that can accommodate 150 people. The Six26 also has a lounge, which can accom - modate 100 people or 250 with a full buyout. The Study accommodates up to 25 people seated or standing room for up to 65 and provides private access to the rooftop. Unique offerings include an artisanal cocktail program, the option to customize menus and state-of-the-art A/V equipment in each space.

The Parlor features an in-house oyster bar, while the rest of the cuisine is classic American with a Latin twist that reflects the demographics of the area and the heritage of head chef Giancarlo Borletti. Guest favorites include a firecracker shrimp appetizer and, of course, The Ashford’s impressive list of cocktails, which are available for events.

This creation is one of the distillery’s most requested drinks and perfectly refreshing in the summertime.
