Hoboken natives know they don’t need to hop on the ferry every time they want a night out. Hoboken is a great place to hang out—if you know where to go. If you’re looking to sink your teeth into all Hoboken has to offer, check out these top activities you can’t do anywhere else.
#1 – Take a baking class at Carlo’s Bakery
Don’t just sample the treats from Carlo’s Bakery’s, try your hand at making some yourself! Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ve heard of Carlo’s Bakery of Cake Boss fame. Some of the most delicious—and most ambitions—cakes have been made right here in New Jersey. Learn everything there is to know about fondant and make some unique creations of your own. When you’re done, pick up a few treats for the road, from oven fresh pastries to red velvet cupcakes. You have to cross the tracks for this one—the Hoboken shop on Washington serves delicious treats but no classes. For that you’ll need to check out the Jersey City location nearby.
#2 – Pick up some cooking classes at Hudson Table
Hudson Table in North Hoboken is the place to go for a unique night out. This charming kitchen with its warm, modern design hosts couples, friends, solo flyers, and whole families at their dynamic cooking classes. Pick up some new skills, enjoy some wine with dinner, and have a great time. Classes range from $85 to $100, and menus are constantly changing. From the exotic dishes of tropical locales to Mexican street food and healthy baking, you can learn everything you need here.
#3 – Have a different night out at ArteVino
This BYOB painting studio on Monroe Street is a great option for bachelorettes, birthday parties, and dates out. Even if you’re feeling a little nervous at first, nothing gets those creative juices flowing like a few bracing gulps from your wine glass. So check out ArteVino’s painting classes, where you can get two hours of painting lessons for $45. Keep an eye out—this place is a little hard to find. But the studio is spacious and bright, with huge windows and lots of natural light, so it’s well worth the trek.
