If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, look no further than the newly opened South House.
This Southern style inspired establishment is quaint and unassuming from the outside with its wooden décor and even lacks a sign to identify itself, but the inside is anything but ordinary. Once you walk inside, it feels like you’ve time warped a few decades back with the live band, brick walls, and wooden tables.
The restaurant aims to make you feel at home in a friendly atmosphere; with that in mind the menu naturally contains classic comfort food such as pulled pork, buttermilk fried chicken, and mac n cheese – all with their own twist of course.
The Mac n Cheese came with chopped brisket, and the burger came with black beans and Fritos. Not exactly traditional, but it was delicious. The food certainly did not disappoint, but the standout of the establishment was definitely the cocktail menu.
With names like ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’, ‘Midnight Mojito’, and ‘Cheap Thrills’, you kind of know they’re something special. I’ll be honest and admit I don’t really remember which ones I’ve tried, but I do remember they were all delicious. Stop by and check it out for yourself, I’ll be there for brunch.
South House is located on 149 Newark Avenue, Jersey City 07302.
