New Jersey has a lot to offer: exciting activities, delicious restaurants and fun events all year round. This week we’re honing in on Montclair, NJ to bring you some of our favorite spots to take a Lyft ride to. No matter what you're looking for, this neighborhood has something for everyone.
For Girls Night Out Or Date Night: Uptown Art
You’ll never leave disappointed from Uptown Art. If you’re looking to change up your GNO or date night from the typical dinner and drinks routine, this is for you! In a casual and fun learning environment, Uptown Art offers step-by-step instructions to create your own painting — no expertise required. As if all of that wasn't enough, Uptown Art's Montclair location is BYOB! Drink and paint the night away and then get a safe ride home with Lyft.
For Boutique Shopping: Envy
The merchandise at Envy by Melissa Gorga is the perfect combination of unique, chic and fun. Melissa and her talented team hand pick pieces from a variety of designers. Bring your family and friends because there is something for everyone at Envy. New users get $10 in free ride credit with code MELISSAG.
For Brunch: Raymond's
The award-winning Raymond's has been a Montclair staple for close to 30 years. While it's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner we recommend their brunch. Don't be scared off by the crowds, it's worth the wait, trust us! Try the pancakes with pure Berkshire's maple syrup or the breakfast burrito.
For Dessert: Montclair Bread Company
Montclair Bread Company is a family owned bread shop specializing in doughnuts. Obviously the store sells breads such as ciabatta and jalapeno cornbread, but the line you’ll witness is for the doughnuts. Some daily favorite flavors are tres leches and fruity pebbles. However, the menu is constantly changing due to trends, flavors and seasons.
For Coffee: Crazy Mocha
You can smell the coffee beans from down the street, and we’re not complaining: Crazy Mocha is home to the best cup of coffee in town. They offer anything from your traditional coffee and cappuccino to acai matcha lattes. Due to the great customer service, available seating, and amazing aroma, once you visit Crazy Mocha you won’t want to leave.
