What’s your Morristown Bar Zodiac Sign?!

Reading up on your astrological sign and traits is all the rage. Articles like, “Where should you vacation based on your sign” or “The best way to de-stress based on your sign” are everywhere.

Well, here’s one more...The Morristown bars as zodiac signs!

BT DUBS: To make this post even more out-of-this-world, we had a special set of guest eyes, Celestial Contextualizer, Melissa Fairchild Clark!

Let’s take a look:

Aries - Stirling Tavern

Confident, enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, passionate, moody, bold.

Aries are known to be creative, fiery and stylish. They possess an impeccable sense of style. Yet, despite all this elegance, they remain children at heart.

Which is why Stirling Tavern would be an Aries.

Stirling Tavern is stylish and elegant, with the perfect ambiance that makes it a go-to happy hour spot.

But don’t let the upscale atmosphere fool you - they’re still “children at heart” as Aries’s are, with regular fun theme nights, like their previous Luau night, Mariachi Brunch, and their upcoming Kilbeggin 4 Course Whiskey Dinner. Call them at 973-993-8066 for ticket information and to reserve your spot!

Speaking of Aries being bold...definitely try the Voodoo wings!

Taurus - The Famished Frog

Reliable, patient, practical, responsible, stable. Unwavering. Unfailingly persistent.

These all describe Taurus...and The Famished Frog!

The Famished Frog is a Morristown mainstay. Whether you’re looking for a delicious dinner, fun happy hour, or great live music, you’re guaranteed a good time. They have weekly happy hour and dinner specials, and their sister bar Hops, has weekly Trivia Night. Trivia Night not your thing?

Kick back with friends while playing pool and enjoying the free popcorn.

Gemini - South Street Social

Gentle, affectionate, curious, adaptable, funny, sociable.

Geminis are known for being typically passionate yet easy-going beings who are always down for an adventure or intellectual conversation. The traits listed above, especially adaptable, funny and sociable, perfectly describe South Street Social.

South Street Social is where Sona Thirteen used to be. While relatively new to the Morristown bar scene, they’ve certainly made a name for themselves. This is the perfect place to meet friends for a drink.

Looking for fun? Shoot some hoops, play skeeball, listen to a comedy show in the downstairs area, or dance the night away on Friday and Saturday nights.

Looking for an intellectual conversation?  Sit at the bar and have a signature cocktail, or attend one of the many networking events that take place.

Cancer - Jockey Hollow

Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, sympathetic, persuasive, playful.

When you read highly imaginative and playful, Jockey Hollow comes to mind. Jockey Hollow offers four distinct dining experiences on different levels of the restaurant located within Vail Mansion: Dapesca, The Oyster Bar, The Vail Bar and The Rathskeller.

Whether you’re looking for craft cocktails, delicious seafood, or a beer hall - Jockey Hollow has it all.

They use fresh, local and high-quality ingredients throughout. Dapesca, the fine dining seafood restaurant on the top level, is almost exclusively sourced from off the coast of New Jersey.

Bon appetit!

Leo - Iron Bar

Creative, fun, intense, passionate, warm-hearted, cheerful, humorous.

Leos are known to be fun, the center of attention, and have a magnetic personality.

When you drive by Iron Bar on a weekend, with wrap-around lines and bumping music, you certainly can’t help but to be drawn to it!

Iron Bar is the place to go if you’re looking for a night on the town full of dancing. You might even spot some bachelorette parties (and certainly 21st birthday parties) there. Check it out on a Thursday night for $1 beer specials.

With two levels, you and your friends can carve out a spot. Stay on the top level for top 40 hits and throwbacks, or head downstairs for a more clubby atmosphere.

PS - it’s also a great happy hour spot!

Virgo - Tashmoo

Loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical, shyness.

Tashmoo’s tagline on their website is, “Come grab a burger and a beer.” That’s certainly practical!

Tashmoo is the spot to go for a chill happy hour with coworkers. It has a great atmosphere and happy hour specials...including Sundays!

You can also find a lengthy selection of craft beers (to go along with that delicious burger).

It’s tucked away on DeHart Street, but next time you’re walking on South Street, take a detour and stop in.

Libra - Revolution

Cooperative, diplomatic, gracious, fair-minded, social.

Libras are said to adore high art, intellectualism, and connoisseurship. Well, if you’re a beer connoisseur, look no further than Revolution. Named “A Social Brew House,” it’s the place to go to try new and different beers. With 40 beers on tap, you’re bound to find one you love.

If you’re looking for a relaxed spot to drink beer and grab a bite to eat, Revolution is the spot for you. Their slogan? “Tip a pint, enjoy a wurst at Revolution.”

Scorpio - Laundromat

Resourceful, brave, passionate, a true friend, secretive.

Laundromat is Morristown’s secretive speakeasy (and only 23 and older bar). Perhaps you’ve walked by it and seen the “laundry machines” in the entryway.

Laundromat is resourceful like Scorpio in that they have a variety of “vibes” happening on any given day at any given time.

If you’re looking for a moody ambiance with live music, head over any night around 7pm for open mic nights and live performances.

If you’re looking for a dance party, walk through the Laundromat doors after 10 pm to find a bumping party. Little to no cell phone service really adds to the speakeasy vibe.

Regardless of when you go, make sure to try one of their homemade cocktails!

Sagittarius - Horseshoe Tavern

Generous, idealistic, great sense of humor, thrill-seeking, adventurous.

Sags are adventurous and effortlessly magnetic...just like Horseshoe Tavern!

Horseshoe Tavern has a downstairs bar area and an upstairs bar called The Raven Room (which can be booked for private parties).

Feeling adventurous? Head upstairs to the Raven Room, which has a distinctive, mysterious look and feel, that is different from the western theme downstairs.

Looking for fun and games? Horseshoe Tavern also has skeeball!

Sags are also known to be the comedians of the zodiac. So it only makes sense that Horseshoe Tavern often has comedy shows.

Horseshoe is another bar with great happy hour specials and weekly live music performances. They also have theme nights regularly...so if something like 80s night sounds up your alley, make sure to check out Horseshoe Tavern!

Capricorn - The Office

Responsible, disciplined, self-control, ambitious, attentive.

Whether you’re looking for a delicious dinner, a cold craft beer, a TV to watch the game on, or a place to meet after work, The Office is the place to go.

It’s responsible and disciplined as Capricorns are.

Another Morristown mainstay you can always count on.

A reinvention of what was an iconic New Jersey restaurant chain, The Office Tavern Grill prides itself on providing its guests with a carefully crafted experience.

Aquarius - SM23

Progressive, original, independent, moody.

SM23 is strange in location, original in it's cocktail menu which focuses on a slew of martini options, independent in that it isn't your typical morristown bar that everyone knows of and fits in with the crowd, AND moody in that it's truly moody in there. Aquarius' tend to be aliens-like in the most out-of-this-world kind of way, and the vibe in there could totally be a space bar!

Pisces - Town Bar + Kitchen

Compassionate, artistic, intuitive, gentle, wise, desire to escape reality.

Pisces likes to escape reality. Perhaps this is what Town Bar + Kitchen was going for when they opened up the only rooftop in Morristown.

Town Bar + Kitchen certainly has an artistic ambiance. We love the high ceilings and exposed brick.

Head over for craft cocktails and a delicious brunch, lunch and dinner menu. The menu changes seasonally and ranges from traditional dishes, like Organic Pork Chop, to culturally inspired dishes, such as our Grilled Octopus.

Well, there you have it. A sampling of the Morristown bars as zodiac signs!
