Summer 2021 has been one for the books! As we are approaching the end of the season, it is time to take one last swing through the best places to enjoy summer in Port Imperial. From our favorite outdoor activities to the perfect place to soak up the sun at the Capstone, we have featured some of the best ways to celebrate.
Restaurants to rave about
A place we have been dining and loving these past few months is Marcus at NoHu Rooftop. This restaurant makes it onto our summer favorites for several reasons. Their rooftop allows guests to dine outside and enjoy all the wonderful seasonal weather. In addition to their outdoor seating, you can gaze at the spectacular Manhattan skyline. Combine rooftop views, their exquisite food by Chef Marcus Samuelsson, and great service, you have a recipe for the perfect summer evening.
Another essential part of the summer is having a place with cool cocktails and a relaxed ambiance. Lucky for Capstone residents, The Highwood is just a four-minute drive down the road! Serving both drinks and food, this is the summer hotspot for happy hour and drinks anytime. They offer a large selection of cocktails, beers on draft, wine, and other tasty refreshments. We recommend tequila lovers indulge in their signature The Highwood cocktail due to its magnificent combination of spice and sweetness. The Highwood brings in a playful crowd and always has fun vibes, so be sure you make your way there before the summer comes to an end.
An adored summer activity
Pier A Park’s movies under the stars takes a well-deserved spot on our top five list. Every Wednesday, residents can reserve tickets to experience beloved movies as the sun sets on the Hudson. Grab a blanket and some popcorn as you cuddle with loved ones under the glittering stars. There’s one more chance in August to take advantage of this local experience.
Shopping till you drop
We can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday than shopping the day away at the boutiques on the Hoboken waterfront. Whether you prefer small boutiques or well-known stores, you can find it all in one convenient location. Some of our go-to shops include Alba Boutique, Anthropologie, Oran Boutique, and Hoboken Clique. We recommend shopping for transition pieces that will bring you into fall fashion or if you have children to get a start on your back-to-school shopping!
Lounging at the Capstone
Of course, we had to save the best for last…your home; the Capstone! Starting off strong, our outdoor patio is the epitome of summertime fun. From swimming and relaxing in the pool to barbequing hotdogs and burgers for friends, there is never a dull moment in Port Imperial. And for those who prefer to beat the heat and find entertainment indoors, make your way over to the clubroom. Here you will find games, books, lounges, and more. There is no better place to be than home, and we make sure everyone finds their perfect spot!
With only a few weeks left in August, there is still plenty of time to take part in the Capstone’s cherished top five. Schedule a tour today to learn more about all the fun we have when living on the waterfront!
