My father took me here for my first legal drink when I turned 21. I had his repast here after his wake. When I showed up a random day years later Skip recognized me, praised my dad, talked how he missed him and that old crew, and wouldn’t let me pay for a drink.

So cool that you’re keeping it alive. My family is in Clifton & starting when my grandpa passed 14 years ago we have gone in every now and then. My grandpa owned a nightclub in NYC in the 50s & 60s so we knew the best way to salute him was a drink. We found this place that night.

Sometimes our connection runs deeper than we expect. How beautiful, so glad you are carrying his legacy to another level and simultaneously keeping that special part that was Skip. As a bartender I feel this deeply. Cat that’s what I do I drink beer and forget things poster. I have been blessed to also work for some amazing people who passed on that we miss terribly everyday and became like family. e was a real brother to me. From HS to working as. Teamster together. Riding the routes of Jersey. Summer Jersey shore all nighters. Think of his generous soul often. Trying to find that insatiable kindness he had within. Great story, the kind that immortal timeless brands can be built upon.
