These bars will let you feel the relaxation of the beach, without actually being there! Because sometimes you just do not want to deal with the traffic, sunscreen, sand, or Chris Christie in his beach chair!

Surf City

This one is a given -- the location offers several bars, great seafood, and even a fire pit. If you're feeling adventurous, there's even some sand for you to dip your toes into! 1 Marin Boulevard

What to drink: Surf City Sunrise

Happy Hour: 4-7pm M/F

Cellar 335

The tiki bar ambiance does not disappoint. Take a trip down Newark Ave and you'll be transported to a local tiki bar on a tropical island. The only thing missing is the ocean. 335 Newark Ave

What to drink: Category 4
Happy Hour: 5-7pm Daily

The Lutze Biergarten

This venue may be described as a biergarten but when sipping a Lutze Lemonade, sitting on a beach chair while gazing at the Hudson may persuade you as otherwise. pPlus, you can bring your dog! 3 Second Street

What to drink: Lutze Lemonade

Happy Hour: 4-6pm Mon-Fri

The Iron Monkey

The rooftop bar at Iron Monkey offers something tropical that none other on this list does: a waterfall wall. Placed on top of the fourth floor of the restaurant, great prices on drinks and relaxed atmosphere will get you in the beach mood.

What to drink: any beer in their 4-page Beer Bible

Happy Hour: 4-7pm daily

Lucky 7s

This may seem like a stretch—but Lucky 7s offers a beachcomber-bar like atmosphere to those that walk in. With great music, and a wide range of drinks, you'll forget you're even in Jersey City when in this one. 322 Second Street

What to drink: Whiskey Sour

Happy Hour: 3-8pm Mon-Fri, 12-8pm Sat & Sun
