In 2023, a wellness space and event venue called Loop soft-opened at 80 Maple Avenue in Montclair. It became the newest event venue in town with a beautiful, eco-conscious design and a mission built on living responsibly, mindfully, and with purpose. Since then, the 15000-square-foot space has been reimagined into Loopwell, an informative well-being hub with retreats, programs, and classes. As of February 6th, Loopwell reopened its doors to welcome individuals and companies seeking personal growth. Read on to learn all about Loopwell — the newly rebranded space in Montclair, New Jersey.
Located at 80 Maple Avenue in Montclair, Loopwell is a first-of-its-kind gathering space rooted in “connecting people to purpose” According to a press release, “Everyday, Loopwell curates evidenced based programming, classes and experiences that promote the core pillars of well-being.” The instructors, teachers, coaches and experts at the center “are working together to build community and empower people to practice self-care.”
Every week, Loopwell hosts events centered around well-being and other forms of self-care. The Loopwell Winter Series features over 12 events, some of which include other Montclair businesses, others professionals in the wellness space. These events are open to the public (though registration may be required) and can be found here.
Beyond the events, Loopwell also has membership opportunities for individuals and companies. Per a press release, individual members have access to “a range of holistic well-being services designed to improve the core components of well being (mental, physical, spiritual, occupational, environmental, financial, social, and emotional).” Corporations, similarly, “have access to customized retreat experiences that address the specific integrated well-being needs of the organization.”
Giving is the foundation of Loopwell’s business model, as the company donates a portion of all incoming funds to charities and initiatives. In the past, Loopwell has given back to local charities like Human Needs Food Pantry and Toni’s Kitchen, as well as national organizations like charity: water and Black Girls Who Code.
The 15,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor sustainable venue houses seven different spaces, each one more serene than the next. The thoughtful, environmentally conscious, and natural design makes it a place where people want to come together to do good.
At the center is The Great Room, complete with beautiful natural light streaming in with 25-foot vaulted ceilings, a hand-crafted bar, and a full wall-sized flat panel monitor. The Great Room is where most large-scale events and corporate gatherings happen. The next space over is the Wellness Room, which is a more intimate studio space for meditation sessions and other mindfulness events.
Other usable spaces include an Apothecary and Library for smaller working sessions, a fully functional Kitchen, and a private outdoor cobblestone courtyard. Lastly, Loop is right across the street from Glenfield Park and Loop staff can help companies apply for a permit for park usage while allowing clients to use Loop as their home base.
Everything that went into the space has sustainability in mind and aims to minimize Loop’s footprint. These details include reclaimed furniture, earth-friendly materials, energy-efficient appliances, a water station, low or no VOC products, and more. The space is also pet-friendly, with a Doggy Den to make four-legged friends feel extra comfortable.
Ultimately, the goal of Loopwell is “to create a beautiful and functional space that aligns with organizations that value an integrated, human-centered approach for their events.” But beyond organizations, community well-being is always at the forefront: “Loopwell is more than a well-being hub; it’s an inclusive destination for holistic self-care and community.”
