The LUTZE is now open for 2019!
The Lutze is Jersey City’s outdoor waterfront venue, offering the community a haven for great food,
drinks, games, and an even better time. The Lutze invites everyone to enjoy themselves – mingle with
neighbors, visit old friends, make new friends – all while sharing the spectacular view of the New York City skyline.
Located just four minutes from Downtown Manhattan via the PATH to Exchange Place, and less than
eight minutes on the NY Waterway Ferry, you’ll see that The Lutze is perfectly situated on the Jersey City waterfront. Lutze was influenced by the foundation of Jersey City – its diversity and tapestry of culture that allowed Americans to build a welcoming and thriving community.
A tribute to my grandfather, Wilhelm “Willy” Lutze, The Lutze symbolizes sincere dedication. Willy was
born to German immigrants in Jersey City in 1900 and since, made it his life-long home. Willy was
hardworking, always fair, and extremely proud. He raised four daughters and supported his family as a
carpenter and mason throughout his life here and passed away in 1973. His legacy continues well past his life.
And it’s our sincere dedication to continue celebrating the community. We built The Lutze to activate
and share the waterfront that we love so much with the community members, as well as to honor all of our heritages. In that spirit, we will be donating a substantial portion, if not all of our profits, to local charities and political causes that benefit Jersey City.
I hope you enjoy your time at The Lutze – cheers!
