Use our list to navigate the nightlife in Central New Jersey.

There is so much to do, and so little time when it comes to nightlife in Central New Jersey. Delight your tastebuds in one of our high class restaurants, then dance those dinner calories away in one of our many great nightclubs or lounges. You can catch dinner and a show or laugh the stress of the day away at a comedy club, like the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, NJ. Or, if you are here on business, simply grab a beer after work, relax, and watch the game at a local sports bar. If you enjoy live entertainment, there are a number of bars that offer live music, as well.

Looking for something to do with the kids after dinner? Go for a round of mini golf or play the arcades at Monster Mini Golf in New Brunswick. Bowl late into the night at Stelton Lanes- they stay open until midnight Thursday through Saturday. If you’re feeling nostalgic, take a trip back in time and visit the historic Dunellen Theatre. This single screen theater caters specifically to families and children, offering a fun and affordable night at the movies. No matter what type of entertainment you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it in Middlesex County. Take a look at the list we’ve compiled of the best bars, restaurants, and other entertainment that makes up the nightlife in Central New Jersey.
