your best bet as others have said is to take an Uber into Hoboken Sat night. Bars start getting decent around 10pm. Last call is 230am. Figure about a $20-25 uber ride each way. Maybe a 15 min drive. Not very far at all. Most of the good nightlife spots are "downtown" Hoboken (closer on the map to the Hoboken PATH station). Check the areas around Newark Ave and 1st Street close to Washington St. If you want any specific bar recommendations, let me know what you like and I can name some

What gave you that impression? Their website is pretty clear about when they are open.

You can either stay near the stadium or stay near nightlife but you can't have both. That stadium is in the middle of nowhere with no night life around it and no bars around it other than your hotel bar.

Most bars in downtown Hoboken will not have covers. However, they will get crowded / lines will form after 11pm. if you get there early it will be better. Check out:

The Shannon: gets super packed later, so check it out early, around 10pm. Has a DJ, beer pong in the back early in the night. No cover. Good music.

Ferryman on First: half block from Shannon. Not big for dancing, but they do have a DJ and pretty good music. No cover but pricey beers

Birch: club type place, usually has around a $10 cover. The downstairs area does not get too packed, but the upstairs main dance floor does get crowded. Good music though. Again get there early to avoid lines

Mike's Saloon: next door to Birch. A bit of a different "scene" than the typical Hoboken bar in that this place will play mostly country and rock. Not sure if you like that sort of thing but might be worth a visit

There's tons of bars near the Hoboken PATH station. You can ask the Uber driver to drop you there and you can wander around. In general if you see a long line in front of a bar...it's probably not worth waiting for. Just find another place and wander in. Good luck

Also - most bars will have some moderate dress code (work boots a big no-no, athletic apparel sometimes frowned upon).

Hobeytown I would say is and has been more young hips, has not been rough in many decades.

Hoboken skews younger especially near the area I pointed you to. 21-25 college grads. If you can visualize a bunch of frat party "Chads", that's the clientele lol.

If you hate that scene, there's bars uptown as well (around 14th Street), but honestly those are not as fun as downtown
