Maritime Parc, located at the marina at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, is well known for its stunning views of Manhattan and its elegant food, but its cocktail list is really worth perusing. These drinks aren’t just delicious—most of the specialty cocktails are inspired by and named for famous shipwrecks off the coast of New Jersey or New York.

The Spanish steamer Vizcaya was headed for Havana on Nov. 1, 1890, when it collided with a coal schooner, Cornelius Hargrave. The wreck is located off the coast of New Jersey about 25 miles south of the Manasquan inlet.

With its proximity to the water, New Jersey commercial fishermen regularly reel in more than 100 million pounds of fish and shellfish each year, which is why so many seafood restaurants thrive in the state. For those looking to enjoy the freshest catch in the company of friends and colleagues, many of these seafood restaurants offer private dining space for groups and parties.
