The Bradford, the newest venue from Briad Management Services, Inc., opens today atop AC Hotel Bridgewater, a 150-room Marriott property that offers an oasis of sleek design, inspired by classic styles of European soul and Spanish roots. Located in Bridgewater, New Jersey, steps away from downtown Somerville, the multi-room, indoor/outdoor rooftop offers a drinking and dining experience like no other in the area. Upscale, sophisticated, and energized by its modern design, unmatched views, and curated music, The Bradford provides world class spirits, service, and superior shareable plates for locals and tourists alike to enjoy.
The Bradford’s concept and vision comes from Founder, Chairman and CEO of Briad Management Services, Inc., Brad Honigfeld. “Brad has traveled the world to bring a unique rooftop experience to his home state of New Jersey,” explains Rick Barbrick, President, Co-CEO and COO of Briad Management Services, Inc. “He spearheaded the design process in collaboration with famed Los Angeles restaurant + nightclub designer John Sofio, President and Founder of Built, Inc., while overseeing even the smallest of details with his talented team of executives and operators. The food, fine spirits and wines were all selected and approved by Brad.” The project was built by Briad Construction Services, a division of Briad, led by Chuck Pagnotta, Senior Vice President, Construction and Design.
The 7,000 square foot space, located on the hotel’s seventh floor, boasts both indoor and outdoor seating options, providing a safe, fun and flexible environment that offers multiple atmospheres throughout the day or night. Each space, including The Library, Tap Room, and outdoor bar has its own look and feel, designed to provide guests opportunities to lounge, party, and play. The areas are upscale and chic, with sleek floors, comfortable seating, ample landscaping, and modern wall décor, with spectacular views of Somerset County and the Watchung Mountains. The outdoor area has fireplace heaters and covered dining areas, making it the perfect location to dine no matter the season.
The Bradford’s menu, curated by Chef Jonathan Kavourakis (TAO Group – Beauty & Essex, VANDAL, Stanton Social; The Brookdale), offers a wide variety of small plates, as well as a handful of entrée options including the Shrimp Cocktail, Mediterranean Spiced Meatballs, the 14oz Prime NY Strip, and The Bradford Burger. The dishes are designed for sharing and brought to the table steadily and continuously throughout the meal, holding true to The Bradford’s desire for an energized, interactive experience. The bar menu features an expansive collection of premium sprits, craft cocktails, universal wine offerings, and draft beer options. Signature sips include refined twists on classic cocktails such as the Peanut Butter Old Fashioned, Curious Cucumber, and Purple Paradise.
“We’re thrilled to finally open the doors of The Bradford to the public,” said Matt Troisi, Briad Management Services, Inc.’s Director of Special Venues. “We’ve thoughtfully curated each part of The Bradford experience to ensure every visit feels like a special occasion.”
