Escape to Red Bank

We invite you to change your scenery—and ours. We have…

Cool Neighbors

When you move your business to Red Bank, you’ll be in great company. Your neighbors will be icons like Tiffany & Company, underground legends like Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, city chic like Garmany & Dor L’Dor, and other stalwarts like Urban Outfitters, Restoration Hardware and West Elm. This landscape is peppered with unique boutiques catering to foodies, fashionistas, and culture consumers. You’ll rub elbows with arts institutions like the Count Basie Theatre, the Two River Theater, numerous galleries and studios that bring thousands of people into town each year. And because Red Bank is a regional hub for finance and business (Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Charles Schwab, Newport Capital Group, and numerous other financial mangers, banks, CPA and law firms), there is a built-in customer base for dining, retail, and service-based businesses.

Good Vibes

Spring, summer, and fall, Red Bank draws people downtown with al fresco dining, strategically placed street musicians and entertainers, colorful pole banners and lovingly tended floral displays. In winter, Red Bank becomes a holiday village with sumptuous decorations and lights, carolers and musicians, horse drawn carriage rides, many opportunities to interact with Santa, fun holiday contests for shoppers, creative window decorations and free parking during prime shopping weeks.

Vibrant Community

Red Bank has a highly successful Business Improvement District managed by a 501(c)(3) called Red Bank RiverCenter. Property owners, business owners, borough officials, and residents work together with RiverCenter staff to make Red Bank the people’s choice to shop, dine, work and play. They collaborate to attract more businesses and customers from more places through visual improvement projects, promotions, marketing, advertising, and special events that include Red Bank Restaurant Week, the award winning Red Bank Wedding Walk, the International Flavor Festival, the ever-popular annual Sidewalk Sale (60 years and counting!) and the famed Red Bank Guinness Oyster Festival, when more than 15,000 people flock to Red Bank for Guinness, oysters, music and more.
