As warmer weather approaches, there’s nothing like having a few drinks with brunch. And when you’re looking to make the night before party last, a celebratory brunch is an even more fun way to spend the morning. A party brunch is brunch with a nightclub vibe, often accompanied by loud music, drink specials, and dancing. Any townsfolk might fondly remember Bagatelle’s hardcore party brunch, where the lights went out and everyone danced on the tables. For those missing the NYC Bagatelle experience, we’ve rounded up fun brunch spots with music, DJs, and an otherwise fun party vibe to help kick the itch. Read on for a list of some of the party brunches in Hoboken and Jersey City.
