**Two of Jersey City’s best cocktail barsDullboy and The Archer — were featured in the Village Voice recently. Located in the former Park & Sixth space, Dullboy was named one of the 10 Best New Bars in NYC. “Bartenders Gabriel Reiben and Grant Wheeler execute a menu of original libations like the mezcal Alejandra, packed with the earthiness of achiote syrup and chocolate bitters,” writes the Village Voice. Meanwhile, The Archer’s superb cocktail menu — created by Dutch Kills bartender and Jersey City native Natalie Jacob (pictured above) — is featured in a separate story that focuses solely on The Archer. “People are more receptive to different things in Jersey City — hence our menu,” says The Archer co-owner Jesse Weeks. “I don’t think what we’re doing would fly in Hoboken, but here people are more edgy, more experimental.” —Village Voice 10 Best Bars, Village Voice The Archer
