Style: Loud and family-friendly, this TV-packed sports bar serves burgers, wings and beers and boasts 4,200 square feet of seating options including the bar, high and low tables and couches.
Don’t Miss: To start off the first-quarter of any game, try the Pour Chips—hand-cut potato chips, fries or tater tots smothered with Jack and cheddar cheeses, crispy bacon and housemade spicy ranch, or the pretzel-crusted chicken tenders served with whole-grain honey mustard (both $9.99). Every item is listed with a suggested beer pairing (Pourhouse proposes a Brooklyn Pennant Ale with its Pour Chips). Or, choose from Pourhouse’s selection of more than 100 beers. After halftime, settle in for a burger or sandwich, such as the cheddar burger topped with arugula, tomato, onion confit, aged Vermont cheddar and housemade cognac sauce, or the buffalo-chicken wrap with mixed greens, tomatoes and crumbled bleu cheese (both $11.99).
Heads Up: Pourhouse has karaoke and trivia nights and daily specials such as the $5.95 burger-and-fries lunch special or Tuesday’s Taco Night, when patrons get a free taco with every drink.
The Scoop: The original Pourhouse opened in Manhattan in the summer of 2006. Its popularity prompted the owners to expand to Hoboken in the fall of 2010.
