Hoboken Turtle Club

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

In 1796, the Hoboken Turtle Club was founded and became the first organized social club in American History.

Founded by Col. John Stevens, early membership included Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and John Jay. The first official meeting of the Turtle Club took place at what is now Sybil’s Cave.

‘It must first be premised that this is no ordinary club, from the day of its foundation it has existed for but one thing, the principal of epicurean pleasure’
- Col. Stevens.

Today we have re-established and reclaimed their motto of old:

‘As we journey through life, let us live by the way’

The tale of the original Hoboken Turtle Club is pretty cool. Like the claim to have been the official birthplace of baseball, it's part of the charm of old-time Hoboken. My girlfriend and I had passed Turtle Club several times before finally deciding to try it. It was ok, nothing particularly outstanding, which is unfortunate because the restaurant has a cool vibe.
