What to do after 5PM

So it’s a weekday – or maybe a Friday evening! If you’re looking for something to do after work hours, whether that’s with your favorite co-workers, catching up with an old friend, or taking an early date night. Check out what you can do in the evening hours around Somerset County.

Spotted Leaf Plant Company (Somerville)

Think outside the box a bit. This new Somerville establishment is a fun and different take on team building or paint and sips. Get your friends, colleagues, family…whoever! together for a terrarium building class, and pot painting class, or one of their other workshops. We promise you don’t need a green thumb to have a great time here.

Stumpy’s Hatchet House (Green Brook)

Let’s throw some hatchets! Stumpy’s Hatchet House is not only a great experience with friends and family, but it also creates a memorable teambuilding experience. Stumpy’s is also BYOB and BYOF, so make sure you fill your bellies at one of our local restaurants or order takeout/delivery to eat there!

Brook Arts Center (Bound Brook)

Live theater is here in the heart of New Jersey! Head over to Downtown Bound Brook for an evening of entertainment. If you enjoy live shows whether that’s to see the phenomenon RENT, one of your favorite cover bands, a comedy show, magic, or more, Brook Arts Center has what you want! Check out their website for the latest performances and to grab your tickets.

Ultimate Xscape Rooms (Somerville)

The ultimate team building experience. Put your problem solving skills to the test as you attempt to escape the room. Choose from a handful of different rooms created at varying levels of difficulty. Step out in Downtown Somerville afterwards for a drink or a bite to eat.

Bowlero (Green Brook)

Who doesn’t love a little competition? Dust off those bowling shoes and head on over to Bowlero in Green Brook for a lot of fun in a relaxed environment. Be on the lookout for themed nights and specials. Feeling even more adventurous? Join a league!

Grape Expectations (Bridgewater)

Create your own table or fine wine with grapes from all over the world. You’ll experience the atmosphere of your own winery as you go through the 4-step process of producing your own wine from crushing, pressing, racking, to bottling your wine. It’s a process that takes time, but one you’ll bond over.

Old York Cellars (Bridgewater)

Sometimes a day at the office can be followed by a delightful tasting of some locally made wine. You can gather with friends and co-workers at the wine bar in Bridgewater Commons to sample wine (chocolate pairings available too!) and even grab a bottle from their full selection of varietals, blends, and more.
