About River Lounge
Come in, sit-down, relax…
River Lounge is a local gathering spot perfect for enjoying a glass from the well-rounded wine list, a first-class cocktail or a dish off the menu of delicious small bites. It is owned and operated by Anthony and Emilie Barros, long-time residents in nearby Bergen County, NJ. The couple’s strong family ties to Portugal and Italy can be felt in the welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere reminiscent of a local European establishment and throughout the wine and food offerings.
Be sure to visit on a regular basis as River’s wine list is hand-picked by the couple and updated monthly, featuring popular brands as well as a collection of lesser-known, hidden gems. Pairing well with the wine list is a menu of small bites that changes seasonally to include ingredients widely available and at peak freshness in addition to being locally sourced when possible.
River’s barrel tables, warm wood wall planks and iron accents give the environment an old world charm with a modern touch creating the ideal setting for many of the scheduled events whether a wine tasting, local band, sporting event, psychic reading, trivia or paint night.
