The Brownstone was the only traditional bar in Wyckoff and it closed at least 5 years ago.

Weird, just passed it today. I didn't realize it has been closed that long. I got into a fight there once about 40 years ago. Well, not exactly. Some chicks were hassling a friend of mine over what she was playing on the jukebox, and she ran into the ladies room to get me to help her out. I didn't actually have to do anything but stand there and smile and be six feet tall. They went and sat down.

I do know the bar at Aldo's gets busy, but that's more of an upscale crowd, and they are probably banged up by midnight.

I can't think of any other bar in Wyckoff.

There is no real bar in Wyckoff. There is Blue Moon Mexican Restaurant which has a bar and may have a few people on a saturday until 11:30 or so on the late side. There is a wine bar attached to Aldo's restaurant which also empties pretty early and isn't a major "bar".

You will get more for your money in Oakland but the taxes can get a little higher. The schools are really good here but be careful of flooding in some areas.
Wyckoff is a good balance of home prices and taxes out of those towns mentioned. The schools are really good and it has a great community. The home prices in Midland Park are lower but the taxes are higher and it people really love living here. The real estate market is pretty strong and homes sell very well here since it is more affordable then the surrounding towns. Ridgewood and Glen Rock have higher home prices and taxes.

Yes, I forgot about that one but it closes pretty early and feels more like a casual/ family restaurant with a bar in it. It still doesn't feel like a real hangout/late night bar. It closes at 11 on a Saturday night.

I completely forgot about The Barn, and I used to hang out there when I was young. Knew the owner at the time and partied a bit with his son.

Shepherd and the Knuclehead in Haledon isn't far from Wyckoff.
Oakland has several places but most are trash holes
Ramsey, Paramus, Waldwick all have some night life but no downtown areas. You have to go to hoboken for that kind of scene

I don't think the guy was looking for night life.

People don't live in Wyckoff for the bar/restaurant scene. Outside of boulder run shopping area, they want peace and quiet. But there are plenty of options 10-15 minutes away in any direction. Oakland feels alot more rural. You'll still find middle aged guys with mullets and mustaches at the strip malls.

Very true. We lived in Wyckoff for the peace and quiet (plus bigger lots and lower taxes). If we wanted to go to a bar/restaurant, we drove 4 miles or 10 minutes to downtown Ridgewood. Not once did we go out to eat in Wyckoff in the 3 years we lived there.
