Hoboken Makerbar

Hudson County's first (and so far only) Makerspace, the place to collaborate on high-tech projects, learn awesome skills, and meet fellow tinkerers.

The Hoboken Makerspace is a self described collection of hackers, makers, tinkerers, crafters, and builders in the northern New Jersey and NYC area. MakerBar is a private makerspace run by members, for members, from members’ dues and donations. If you’re looking for a pressure-free home for your hobbies and a gathering ground of cool people ready to share their skills, consider becoming a MakerBar member!

Full members enjoy 24/7 access to the space with their own set of keys, a shelf to store projects and personal stuff, access to shared tools and parts, and $25 off all classes. They can bring guests along and participate in all MakerBar activities. Full membership dues are $100 per month.

The Makerbar is located at 38 Jackson Street, 2nd Floor, Hoboken, NJ.  Visit their website here.
