Hudson County is home to great local LGBT bars and restaurants that are a fantastic way to spend an evening and feel a sense of camaraderie with other patrons. Club Six 26 is the perfect place to go for drinks and dancing, and they host a phenomenal drag brunch every weekend, so be sure to get your reservations early! On the other side of the coin is local hot spot Pint! A Jersey City staple since 1911, they have dozens of craft beers on tap and host bingo and trivia nights every week.

Hudson County is considered by many to be one of the most diverse places in the county, and for good reason. Here that diversity is celebrated, and the LGBT community is certainly a part of that celebration. Hudson County was one of the first counties to raise the rainbow flag for pride month! With events being hosted all year by organizations like Hudson Pride, and multiple great spots to relax and unwind, it’s clear that Pride really isn’t just for June, it’s 365 days a year.
