Hollister Construction Completes Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen in Morristown, New Jersey

Morristown, N.J. — The Vail Mansion is listed, for both its interior and exterior, on the National Register of Historic Places.

Hollister Construction Services has completed the transformation of the Vail Mansion in Morristown into Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen, a restaurant offering contemporary American and Italian-inspired dishes. The construction project entailed a complete retrofit of the historic Vail Mansion, enabling New York chef and restaurateur Chris Cannon to create a four-part concept featuring The Oyster & Wine Bar at Jockey Hollow; the Vail Bar cocktail lounge; The Rathskeller private event space; and The Dining Room at Jockey Hollow. Constructed in 1917, the Vail Mansion was commissioned by Theodore N. Vail, the first president of AT&T, as an Italian Renaissance palazzo-style mansion to house his extensive collection of art and family inventions. The Residences at Vail Mansion, luxury condominiums with extensive amenities and below-grade parking, were constructed in 2007 and wrap around the mansion. Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen occupies three full floors and the basement in the mansion.
