Antique Bar & Bakery is a restaurant in a century old Hoboken institution boasting a 30 ton coal oven built of porcelain brick. The 400sqft hearth produced the famous “Hoboken Sticks” for generations; bread so prized Sinatra would have suitcases of the stuff sent straight from the Sixth Borough. Chef Paul Gerard, filmmaker Joseph Castelo and nightlife impresario Rocco Ancarola preserved the Hoboken heirloom to keep the fire burning, saving the bakery and adding a flare of fun with a decor designed around their lasting impressions of the super seventies.
