Patria Latin Bistro is a restaurant and mixology lounge in Rahway, NJ and is hosting Rahway International Film Festival's official after-parties for the event. They are located just a block away from Hamilton Stage for the Performing Arts and across from UCPAC's Main Stage.


The outstanding Latin cooking of Patria's restaurant received 3 stars from The New York Times and raves from Bon Appetit magazine as well as high ratings from Zagat, as Star Ledger put it: "It's official. The renaissance in Rahway is real ... Patria is what young Jersey is really all about — fun and savvy, a smart, stylish mix of urban culture, food and music" From killer Ceviches and Arepa con Ropa Vieja to Marinated Skirt Steak, Paella Valenciana, and the best flan you ever tasted, the food at Patria sizzles and delights. But Patria's about more than just food.  There's a brilliant cocktail list that features an ever-changing array of fresh seasonal libations as well as a great wine list  and a fiery Latin lounge too. The Lounge features incredible entertainment, party packages and events like wine tasting dinners! If you're looking for a unique night out that is sure to be a good time, Patria Restaurant and Mixology Lounge is the place to be.
