HILLSBOROUGH, NJ — Rebranded as the Falcons Nest, the former Polish Falcons of America Club, 140 Falcons Road opened officially Wednesday night with more than 100 guests, many of them members of the local fraternal organization.

Deputy Mayor Gloria McCauley cut the ceremonial ribbon with the assistance of Martin Brown, manager; Hillsborough Business Advocate David Kois; Elizabeth Laskowski, president, Polish Falcons Nest #946 and John Kuzmirek, secretary/treasurer and CFO of the National Falcons organization.

Owned by the national Polish Falcons of America based in Pittsburgh, Pa., work began in February to revamp and upgrade the catering facility, according to Brown.

Updated lighting fixtures brighten the main ballroom, which can seat 299 people. The dark maroon carpet and maroon walls have been replaced with a wooden floor and neutral gray paint. The brick façade outside was also painted gray, so as not to look like a school building, according to Brown.

The modernized bar was busy last night, with guests turning in coupons for free drinks; they also indulged in a free buffet.

The facility has a liquor license and will provide a caterer; those who rent the hall have the option of bringing in their own caterer, according to Martin.

Martin said total costs for the renovation, including cobblestone walkways and new landscaping, cost $150,000.

There are three rooms at the Falcon Nest that can be rented for banquets, weddings, showers, graduations, christenings, showers, reunions, bar mitzvahs and other occasions. Hillsborough Hall, the main ballroom is the largest; the Hillsborough Board Room can accommodate 105 people and the Hillsborough Tavern has a maximum capacity of 80 people.

The 18-acre property also includes an outdoor pavilion and outdoor party facilities.
