Stepping down the recessed stairs to Louise & Jerry’s Tavern at 329 Washington St. is like stepping into a little slice of Hoboken’s history. With exposed brick, a tin ceiling, cream circular floor tiles, and a large mahogany bar, it looks much the same as it did in 1958, when owners Louise and Jerry Grieco took over the old Neerlandia-German-Dutch Seaman’s bar. This one-room tavern has been frequented by locals since the late ’50s and remains one of the few neighborhood spots where Hobokenites can trade stories of old.
