The West Side of Red Bank is an established district for the Arts with two professional theaters prominently anchoring the neighborhood and easily accessed by the NJ Coastal train line. It extends to the banks of the picturesque Navesink River and its waterside parks, enjoys close proximity to two boutique hotels, and enjoys eclectic dining, retail and an active farmer’s market.
More recently the neighborhood has been re-energized by thoughtful renovation and new development, attracting significant tenants such as West Elm, Triumph Brewery and Sickles Market. Just across the street from the Anderson Building, Jon Bon Jovi's JBJ Soul Kitchen, a Community Restaurant where individuals or families can come pay or volunteer for a delicious farm-to-table meal in a warm, welcoming setting.
Celebrating its 25th Anniversary Season, Two River Theater creates great American theater by developing and producing work by some of the country’s leading artists. They produce 8+ theatrical productions each year (including classics, world premieres, musicals, and theater for young audiences) and 40+ annual events.
Riverside Gardens Park is located along the Navesink River, a short walk away on West Front Street. This park hosts many concerts, festivals, movies and fitness events throughout the year.
Just across Bridge Ave from the Anderson Building at West Side Lofts, award-winning Triumph Brewery provides exceptional craft beers, live music and seasonal outdoor dining. West Side Lofts also provides a range of services and eateries, as well as a substantial showroom of home decor at West Elm.
