Visions for Vacancies: What Should Move to 499-501 Bloomfield Ave.?
The former home of Rascals Comedy Club has been vacant for years.
In this installment of Visions for Vacancies, the Montclair Patch asks: what do you think should move into 499-501 Bloomfield Ave., the former home of Rascals Comedy Club?
All possibilities are on the table. We ask you to forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump-lot coverage rules, and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?
This three story building is located in the heart of Montclair's well-walked downtown and also has a liquor license. Although there is limited on-street parking, there is a parking garage nearby.
So what do you think should move in, Montclairions? A theater? A bar and lounge? A restaurant?
