There are so many reasons to visit Princeton.

The University is beautiful and rich in history. The restaurants are some of the best in the Garden State. There are wonderful unique shops, there's a lively arts scene and now one of its bars has the title of one of best bars in New Jersey.

Can you guess which one? Hmmm.

It's Yankee Doodle Tap Room, inside the Nassau Inn, in lovely Palmer Square.

Here's what Best Things New Jersey had to say about the popular spot:

"The self-proclaimed gastropub is a classic bar in Princeton with a warm, inviting atmosphere. They keep 19 beers on tap at any given time, along with wines and other seasonal drinks."

If you've never been there, you should put it on the top of your bar bucket list. The food is great too. It was renovated recently to give it the historical feel it used to have.

It gives off very homey, comfortable vibes. It tells a story. There's a wall of Princeton Alumni with some big names on it. Make sure to check it out.
