When the owners of Halifax in Hoboken decided they wanted to open a little bar in town, they meant it. In late September, the Little Bar — what they are describing as a unique craft restaurant and bar experience with a focus on craft cocktails and preserved food offerings in an intimate setting — will open at 1401 Hudson St., one block from the waterfront. The establishment will be approximately 500 square feet — but Halifax and Little Bar Executive Chef Seadon Shouse said it will have a big impact. The bar, he said, is being designed as an outpost of Halifax’s unique palette, yet focusing on preserved bites. Shouse calls it a new kind of venue for an interesting evening out with tasty and unexpected food.
Located at the W Hotel on Hoboken’s waterfront, Halifax is a fine dining restaurant helmed by Nova Scotia native Chef Seadon Shouse. Preparations intertwine ingredients from Nova Scotia and the Atlantic seaboard featured on daily lunch, dinner and weekend brunch menus.
“Offerings will include preserved seafood ranging from basic sardines to choices for the gastro-curious, like tuna belly or hand-picked cockles, all complemented by an array of hand-crafted cocktails and fine wines,” he said.
Michael Barry said the Little Bar will have a distinct feel.
“The atmosphere will be reminiscent of a European-style neighborhood restaurant and sophisticated small bar experience, with an irreverent and slightly decadent signature,” he said. “We look forward to serving patrons with extraordinary drinks and food in this unique venue and new location.”
