The relatively new Kolo Klub, located above Pilsener Haus & Biergarten, in Hoboken, is all about the cocktails. With super mixologists straight from NYC, the bartenders here sure know how to whip up a mean drink. September is National Bourbon Month and luckily enough this cocktail den knows all about booze- especially bourbon. Try their Old Fashioned ($12) made with Jim Beam Rye/Bourbon, angostura bitters and garnished with a cherry and orange wedge or opt for their classic Manhattan ($12), which is comprised of Jim Beam Rye/Bourbon, sweet vermouth, angostura bitters and garnished with a cherry or lemon twist. Both cocktails can be made with Makers 46 or Knob Creek Rye for an additional charge. So celebrate bourbon like it’s going out of style at Kolo Klub!
