Bell Works Operating Hours, and Other Burning FAQs

Work Inspired

For decades, Bell Labs was cloaked in mystery. If you didn’t work here or know someone who did, you likely never even stepped foot into the mirrored building. Now in its reincarnation as Bell Works, the 2 million square foot space is open to the public, but set back a mile into the trees, there’s still a little mystery surrounding it.

When is it open? Is there anywhere to eat? Can I have my wedding there? Just a few of the FAQs the Bell Works team fields everyday. Here now is a collection of the questions niggling at our fans’ and followers’ minds.

Is Bell Works open to the public?

Yes! The metroburb is open to the public on the ground floor. The upper and lower levels of our building are occupied by private tenants, and so are off limits. The ground floor is open to the public and includes interactive public spaces, shops, eateries, the Holmdel Library, and even an outdoor roof deck - and all have FREE access to WIFI. We ask that you steer clear of spaces that are still under construction.
