A bar along Hoboken’s main street that shuttered after the new year won’t be dark for long as the ownership behind Pig and Parrot is slated to open a new venue at the former Mills Tavern.
Since New Year’s Eve, the lights have been off at 125 Washington Street. But during the January 11 meeting of Hoboken’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, an application was heard to sell the liquor license at the now-closed property to a familiar name.
The group behind Mill’s Tavern applied to transfer the license to an entity called MAC’S 444 LLC. Ownership of the company can be traced to Mike Citarella, who is behind Pig & Parrot just a stone’s throw from the city’s PATH station.
The trade name of the business slated to take over Mills Tavern is listed on the application as Psycho Mike’s Therapy Bar. An inquiry Jersey Digs placed to Pig & Parrot seeking further details about their new endeavor has not been answered.
For those uninitiated, Pig and Parrot opened in the historic Hotel Victor property in 2018. The Key West-style bar serves tropical drinks alongside food like Thai Mahi fish fingers, coconut shrimp, burgers rice bowls, and more.
Construction work to revamp the space has not yet begun at the 125 Washington Street space, and details have not emerged regarding an opening timeline for the new business.
