Dinosaur Bar-B-Que's Newark building was built in 1890 and originally housed Roehlich & Kohler Spirits & Fine Wines. It previously housed a chandelier factory, a haberdashery, a penny arcade and the boxing club where Rubin “Hurricane” Carter trained. The Newark dinosaur opened in 2012. Stop by before or after your event at the prudential center.
