CAMDEN, NEW JERSEY

A.J.'s TOUCH OF CLASS LOUNGE
2461 South 7th Street

The building at 2461 South 7th Street was the home of the 14th Ward Democratic Club as early as 1939 through at least 1977. At some point around 2001 the building became the home of Martin's Bar, which had for over 50 years been located a few hundred feet away at 732 Morgan Boulevard

In February of 2002 a shooting took place outside of the new Martin's Bar. This may have led to an apparent change of ownership, as by the summer of 2003 the building at 2461 South 7th Street was trading as A.J.'s Touch of Class Lounge. This business did not last too long, and the building has stood vacant for many years.
