‘The Archer’ Group Reaches to New Heights, Takes Over Former Trolley Car Bar

One of Downtown Jersey City’s most popular cocktail joints will soon be expanding to a spot on the cliffside, as the owners of The Archer will soon be bringing their concoctions to 328 Palisade Avenue.

The restaurant, known for their small plate dining and creative cocktails, will be taking over the old Trolley Car Bar space in The Heights. The group just closed Thursday on a lease at the property and will be opening a different concept from The Archer that will be called Low Fidelity Bar.

Jesse Weeks, Managing Partner at The Archer, told Jersey Digs that the new outpost will feature the same attention to quality and detail that the restaurant places on their products, but applied to classic American regional cuisine. He says the group plans to largely keep the structure and layout of the existing space intact, but the décor will get a major facelift as part of an effort to create an entirely different space.

“We are excited to be coming to The Heights, as we have many friends and acquaintances who are living in the neighborhood or plan to do so soon,” says Weeks. “We also feel that the neighborhood is relatively underserved as far as bars and restaurants and the property itself has tremendous potential as a local bar.”

Low Fidelity Bar will also make use of the substantial back yard that the property has, which the group feels will be a nice draw. They are aiming to open the new digs in May later this year.
