The Clocktower Cabana has been a dream in the making for many years. I had long imagined a bar under the Clocktower, and in 2004, when the Princeton Shopping Center about to be renovated, we floated our plan past the landlord. The seed was planted. During those renovations, the roof structure was added to the Clock Tower base and the necessary underground pipes were placed to one day provide water, power and drainage. In 2008 Main Street received planning approval for bar use under the roof, but later that year the economy locked up. In January of 2010 I dusted off the approvals, betting that the worst was behind us. After numerous design ideas and revisions we were ready for permits in May, and construction commenced in June. 60 days later the Clocktower Cabana opened on Saturday July 30th, 2010 to great fanfare.
I hope you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and beach-like features - without the shore drive or traffic. The Clocktower Cabana is just a catalyst for that island feeling, it is the special energy that our guests add which makes it the new favorite summer spot in Central New Jersey!
