Bernardsville Landmark Building Awaits New Occupant

56 Degrees Wine Shop's former address at 40 Quimby Lane is for sale.

The Bernardsville building that until recently housed 56 Degrees Wine Shop is a local landmark — and is awaiting the next chapter in its history.

With a classic brick face that fronts on Quimby Lane, the 1928 structure is being marketed as a commercial property. The address at 40-42 Quimby Lane is across from the Bernardsville post office.

The commercial space vacated by 56 Degrees — which moved around the corner to a larger shop at 25 Claremont Road — has brick floors and floor-to-ceiling windows.

According to Trulia.com, the building is 2,500 square feet in size.

So what would you like to see move in to replace the wine shop? Perhaps a retail store?

With art galleries springing up around Bernardsville, do you think this would be a perfect gallery space?

Do you think Bernardsville has enough art galleries? Or is the town's reputation as a center for art galleries snowballing?

What about a clothing store? Or some other shop?

Let us know what you think and tell us in the comments section below.

This is such a great building! I would love to see it turned into a cool coffee house or teen lounge with entertainment. Each night could have performers targeted for different age groups. We need a local place for teens to go in the community. So many talented kids around that could perform! I think people of all ages would enjoy!
