Five West Supper Club is one of Hoboken’s most chic nightspots. It is on Fifth and Madison Street exactly nine blocks down from Washington Street. They have a free shuttle you can call for pick up, and ride home for one to fifteen people!
The club used to be known as BARNONE, and reopened as 5 WEST SUPPER CLUB in 2010. The interior is tastefully decorated with dark, tri-colored, wood flooring, tall booths, a large dance space with a great sound system, and energetic lighting.
“The real bonus is the service,” General Manager Chris Lowther said.
He has created a fun, exciting place with a selective menu of delicious appetizer-style dishes to bring people together. It reflects the clubs ambience, “to create a people-to-people environment,” Lowther said.
There are two full bars at each end of the nightclub. The cocktail menu is creative with popular drinks like the “Virtue” and “Fetish”. The selection of craft beers is current, and changes seasonally. There is bottle service, and open bar available to share with good friends.
The club appeals to a diverse crowd ranging from early twenties to late thirties. The dress code is “look good.” DJ’S such as “CREAM AND ALDEZ”, “GARY W”, and “PRISTIGE” pump out popular sounds to the crowd’s satisfaction.
Lowther has new plans for the club – his concept is called “two becomes one” although he won’t share any details yet. Customers will have to wait till Sept. 6th to see what changes he’ll be unveiling. One thing won’t change is his concept of the surprise experience he wants for his club guests: “Keep guests guessing what surprise entertainment will show,” Lowther said.
