Quality Local Bar

My work often does happy hours at Trenton Social. It is a no-frills bar with plenty of seating. The beer selection is decent, and the bartenders are helpful. It's not usually too crowded, and it's easy to find parking. Great place for a happy hour with co-workers!

Nice neighborhood bar with an open, expansive feel . . garden/tables in the back. A safe, moderately enjoyable place to get together and have a drink or snack in the urban wasteland that is Trenton. Good location between downtown and the (empty) stadium area, but the owner/proprietor has a much higher opinion of his business than most of his customers.... More

Wonderful environment for drinks with friends. Supports local artists and musicians. A real community bar atmosphere. Owner is almost always there. Very reasonable prices. Great bar food. Might be the best food in Trenton. Very safe area with on site parking. My favorite place to go in Trenton.

We've been frequenting the Social for a couple years now. Our favorites are the Social Burger, Wings, MacNcheese Balls, Curry Chicken Sandwich, dumplings and Stella Cidre on tap! Each month the Social features a new local artist so it is worth going back again and again for many reasons!

Nice pleasant place. Good atmosphere inside. Drinks & apps were good and reasonably priced. Location not the greatest but for lunch and happy hour it works. Parking could be marked a bit better. I drove around the block a couple times and thought the parking was a paid lot and there was no indication it was for the restaurant. Too... More

When there is an event happening, there is no better Host than T.C. (owner). Locals are ever present and enjoyable with their vibrant and animated conversations. Fare is quirky but delicious and bar caters to you.

The Apps are great, especially the Mac & Cheese Balls! Service is great and the atmosphere very nice. If you're going to a show at the Sun arena, then this is the place to be.
