CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY

Drinking in Camden
A Look at the Bars, Taverns, Nightclubs & Social Clubs

UPDATED - 01/28/2014

Any look at Camden that purports to be real has to first accept that Camden is a place where real people lived and still live. This town, ANY town, is more than its buildings, more than its churches, more than it politicians, and more than its schools.

The bars, taverns, and social clubs of Camden provided entertainment opportunities for social activities for their patrons and members. The bars would sponsor sports teams, and provide financial support for other social activities, as evidenced in the advertising sections of programs ranging from banquets to high school and college yearbooks.  

In times when Camden was the place to be, it can also be said that Camden was the place to be in a social sense for the many who cared to step out for a taste after a hard days work! 

Camden Bars Before Prohibition

Between 1919 and 1933 there were no legally operating bars as we know them in Camden, as the country was operating under Prohibition. There had been, of course, many such establishments open prior to 1919. Some closed shop forever, others remained open as restaurants, or in related businesses such as soft drink bottling. Some stayed in business operating on a "soft drink" permit, serving near beer. 

Camden's bars were as much a part of the life of the city as the churches and industries. Just as in the days of the American Revolution, a LOT of political activity occurred in and came out of the bars. A lot of appointments to city positions such as the police and fire departments in the days before civil service were received by bar owners, their family members and bartenders. 

When I set this page up, I had few pre-1918 sources at hand, and the coverage on these saloons was quite incomplete. In June of 2009 I came across three newspaper articles listing liquor license renewals in Camden, from 1894, 1895, and 1904. Click on the dates to read the articles in their entirety. The information about the individual bars named will be added to this page as time permits.

Camden Bars During Prohibition

 A very long and very good book could probably be written about Prohibition in Camden. While some tavern owners sold out and others switched to other lines of work, many business owners, with wives and children to support, found there way around the unpopular laws against alcoholic beverages.

A diluted brew of beer was legal, and many of Camden's taverns became "soft drink" houses. Needless to say, the demands of the public for real beer and alcohol and the needs of the businessmen to make a living often met somewhere outside the letter of the law!

A photo of what appears to be a local Camden baseball tavern tournament team, early 1920's. My grandfather, Charles David Letts, Sr. is lying on the ground with the open bottle. The rest of the males in the Letts family have always tried to follow his example. The picture looks like a cross between the Bowery Boys and the Katzenjammer Kids.- Edward Letts, January 2011 

Camden Courier-Post columnist James M. O'Neill, writing under the byline of "JIMINY" noted in the February 2, 1933 edition of the paper that"

"Twenty-seven of the 142 so-called "soft drink" establishments which were granted a Camden license for 1933, were raided by federal agents during the past year. . . So who was the mayor who said some months ago that Camden was beerless?"

While Camden may not have been a "wide open" town in the 1920s and early 1930s, it undoubtedly was "interesting". Philadelphia gangster Mickey Duffy controlled the Camden brewery until he was gunned down in an Atlantic City hotel room, and the saloons and speakeasies of the city in many cases were tipped off about raids. Many stills also were noted in newspapers of the day.

On April 7, 1933, it became legal to serve beer once again in New Jersey. An interesting article appeared in the June 9, 1933 Camden Courier-Post concerning the effects that legalization had on the bars and the speakeasies in and around Camden.

Camden Courier-Post - June 9, 1933

Both Saloons and Speaks Hit By Legalization of 3.2 Beer 
Legitimate Places Lose Lucrative Trade From Philadelphia and Unlawful Hangouts
Are Abandoned by Prohibition Era Patrons

What effect has the legalization of beer had on the speakeasy proprietor or the saloonkeeper in Camden? 

That both the legitimate dispenser of the amber fluid and the fellow who takes a chance on the "hard stuff" are humming a mournful dirge is evident in the conversations of both to their thirsty customers. 

The growth of tap rooms in all parts of the city is one of the complaints of the regular beer places but the order preventing them from using their bars is probably the sharpest thorn in the side of their business. 

Then, too, a number of the "better places" in Camden before April 7 depended almost entirely on trade from Philadelphia and with this lacking, they are 'at their wits' end. 
With bar service unlawful and the drinker forced to sit at a table, the saloon proprietor is wondering what he can do to hang on to the rapidly dwindling clientele. 

Speakeasies, on the other hand, are suffering from the legal return of beer much more painfully. Most of the owners are ready to admit that their once lucrative racket is "taking it on the chin" and the cash registers which jingled so merrily before April 7 are now practically silenced in an awesome lull. 

The explanation advanced is that the "speaks" have been abandoned not because the frequenters have changed their drinking habits but for the simple reason that they would much rather drink 3.2 at 10 cents a glass than some unknown concoction at 50 or 75 cents. 

These warm afternoons which once sent those wishing to "cool off" to their favorite haunts behind peek-hole doors, now find them in the taverns where anyone can hoist a seidel without looking out one corner of the eye. 

The woes of the speakeasy proprietor also have been aggravated in that they must compete with the law-abiding establishments which serve 10-cent beer. 

Roadhouse proprietors, have suffered to a great extent by the whoopee makers who used to bring their own private stock and order beverage and ice to go with it at profitable price but now order beer. 

Some have put on cover charges while others have specified on their menus that parties must meet a minimum bill. 

Taking the whole situation into consideration, one gathers that the only person benefiting in Camden from the legal return of beer is the realtor who has "turned over'" favorite spots to some purveyors anxious to get corner stands. 

The next day, however, word came from city hall, and all was well at the saloons!

Camden Courier-Post - June 10, 1933

STEWART GIVES PERMISSION TO USE DAYLIGHT TIME LOOPHOLE 
Saloon Men's Protest at 1 A. M. Closing Wins Quick Action 
SCREENS ARE SCRAPPED AS WORD IS PASSED 
Report Spread Legislature Will Change Beer Bill Monday

Most of Camden's saloons started selling beer over the bar last night. No arrests were made.

Proprietors of "soft drink" parlors are said to have received an "O. K." to sell over the bar with the understanding they would not be molested.

At the same time it was learned that Mayor Roy R. Stewart had issued an official order at 5 p. m. to acting Chief of Police John W. Golden permitting all beer dispensaries, cafes, etc., to remain open until 2 a. m., daylight saving time, except on Saturday when they must close at midnight. 

Saloonkeepers Protest 

Through their own organization saloonkeepers are known to have put up a vigorous protest on closing at 1 a. m., while in Philadelphia the same closing hour is enforced in standard time, permitting places there to do business until 2 a. m. daylight time. It was said a close check-up failed to reveal anything in t he state or city ordinances differentiating between daylight and. standard time. 

Word is understood to have been passed to the saloon men by high authority that the existing state law "will be changed Monday, sure" when the legislature meets at Trenton, and would knock out the clauses requiring screens and forbidding sale of beer over the bar. 

News Spreads Rapidly 

As if by some mysterious communication system, all saloons seemed to receive the advice at the same time. About 6 o'clock they started removing tables and screens. 

From official sources in Trenton there was firm denial that the beer law even would be taken up Monday.

Meanwhile, court cases were still pending and sentences were still being given out in Federal Court

Camden Bars in the 21st Century

Take a ride through any neighborhood in Camden, and if you are observant you will notice that at one time there must have been a lot of bars! In a time when the neighborhood bar was not a luxury, but almost as much a necessity as the corner grocery and barbershop, Camden had its share. In August of 1936 there were 213 liquor licenses.

Most of the bars are gone, a sign of changing times, attitudes, and the cost of doing business in these modern times. The same thing happened to shoe repair shop- in 1947 Camden had 78 of them.... there may have been 2 left in the city in 2004.   

In order to get a handle on the many bars and taverns the city once had and those it still has, I've divided the city up into several sections, drawn partly on geographical lines, and partly on "neighborhood" lines.

NORTH CAMDEN

One of the older sections of Camden, much of North Camden was fully built up prior to World War I. While no neighborhood was ever exclusively dominated by any ethnic group, in the older days much of North Camden was populated by people of Irish, German, and English descent, with a small Italian neighborhood near 2nd and Main and a black section in the east of 10th Street around Penn Street. The bars reflected the people in the neighborhood. Best remembered are Kelly's at the foot of State Street, Mancine's at 3rd and Elm, Nittingers at North 7th and Birch Street, Anne's Tavern on Vine Street, and Ford's Cafe at 941 Pearl Street, along with the State Bar, the last of the North Camden bars.

The sources used below are the 1946 Camden City Directory, and the Bell Telephone Books for 1956, 1959, 1966, 1970 & 1977. For 1990 and 2004 personal research was done!

CRAMER HILL

Originally part of Stockton Township, Cramer Hill was made part of Camden City in 1899. There was a strong German community, but for the most part Cramer Hill was white, but ethnically diverse. Today there is a strong Latino presence, and some of the old bars remain, under new management, reflecting the present community. 

My memories of Cramer Hill were that there were A LOT of bars, and one could literally drink one's way up River Road, and have a pretty good head on by the time you hit 36th Street!

EAST CAMDEN

Also part of Stockton Township, most of East Camden's Bars lay along Federal Street, the main corridor, with a few on 27th Street leading in to Cramer Hill. East Camden has been my home pretty much since the mid-70s.... I've had some pretty good times here!

ADMIRAL WILSON BOULEVARD

More than a few bars and clubs did business on the Boulevard before Governor Whitman razed everything on the south side in 1999 and 2000. The Boulevard's reputation was far, far worse than the reality..... the price of being located across the river from Philadelphia, where the media constantly paint's Camden in the worst of colors on order to diminish the many, many shortcomings of that blighted city.

The reality is that there were never more than five bars serving liquor on the Admiral Wilson Boulevard in Camden, and no more than three liquor stores, at any time. Given the location, and the State Store situation in Pennsylvania, the liquor stores were (and the two that remain) very profitable.

Of the four bars that did business on the boulevard, three featured dancers clad in the state minimum which consists of a bikini. That's right, in New Jersey, you can't serve a beer and see a nipple at the same time! Not exactly one's conception of a den of iniquity.

What the boulevard did feature were three motels, which by the 1970s had devolved into "by the hour" joints. A certain degree of prostitution took place, and the bars and other legitimate businesses on the Boulevard paid the price, reputation-wise, for that. It did not help that one of the bars, the Oasis, was located in the same building and owned by the same people who owned the Oasis Motel.

Oh yes, we can't forget the infamous "LIVE NUDE SHOW" that Camden was always blamed for. It was on the Admiral Wilson Boulevard..... in PENNSAUKEN.

CENTER CITY CAMDEN

In the days when Camden's downtown was thriving, downtown Camden, defined here as the area between Linden Street and the "Chinese Wall" elevated rail lines at Mickle Street, the Delaware River and the Federal Street Bridge had many bars and restaurants. Some left to declining business, others were forced out in the assorted urban renewal projects that did as much to destroy Camden as revitalize it.

EIGHTH WARD

Centered around the intersection of Ferry Avenue and Broadway and separated from South Camden's residential neighborhoods by a few blocks of industrial and commercial buildings, the Eighth Ward community was driven economically by jobs at the New York Shipbuilding Company shipyard, Howland Croft & Sons textile mill, and the McAndrews & Forbes licorice plant, among others. There was a large Italian community, and apparently smaller Ukrainian and Croatian communities. The bars declined as the factories left, and in 2004 there is only one regular bar open in the entire neighborhood, one private club, and a single liquor store.

FAIRVIEW-MORGAN VILLAGE

Built around the time of World War I to provide housing for the New York Shipbuilding Corporation shipyard's workers. There were never too many bars in Fairview, as the community was built and first settled during the days leading up to Prohibition. After Prohibition was repealed in 1933, a few licenses were granted, but most of Fairview's drinking seems to have been centered around the social clubs, and in the bars of Gloucester City, Mount Ephraim, and West Collingswood.
