Off-Site Meeting Venues: Landmarks to Live It Up

DEK: Meetings become lifetime experiences when hosted in one of New Jersey’s most unique meeting venues. 

State Theatre New Jersey

Originally built as a silent movie house in 1921, today, this historic art deco gem is the hub of New Brunswick’s arts community, hosting international orchestras, Broadway shows, comedians, dance, and more. For groups, the venue offers special packages, which include discounted tickets, priority seating, concierge service, and special event spaces to host a pre- or post-show party.

Rutgers Gardens

You’ll find no prettier place for a company picnic or luncheon than this little oasis located on the outskirts of the Rutgers University campus. The on-site log cabin and pavilion are available for rent and feature a beautiful backdrop of specialty gardens, tree and shrub collections, and walking paths..

Stress Factory Comedy Club

In addition to their usual schedule of acts, this comedy club – having hosted the likes of Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, and Drew Carey – also offers special private party packages for groups looking to book out the entire venue. Your private comedic show comes with dinner, selected from 10 different menu options and provided by the venue. 

The Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum

The galleries and gathering spaces within the largest university art museum in the country make for the ultimate backdrop for a private event, dinner party, or lecture. More than 60,000 works of art are on display, in addition to a particularly extensive collection of Russian work, which accounts for one-third of the entire holdings.
