Best Kids Hangout

With its clean, airy spaces, serene color palette and complimentary Wi-Fi and coffee, Nook is a parent’s dream playroom. Geared toward children 5 and younger and sectioned into themed “nooks,” the Mosaic District location (and another soon to open at Ballston Quarter) is organized in a series of sensory-friendly zones for artistic, creative, constructive, active and imaginary play. In addition to weekly open playtimes and classes for both kids and parents—focusing on things like music, preschool readiness and wellness—Nook offers a neutral and safe place to host kids’ celebrations without having to worry about ushering little ones with wobbly plates of birthday cake away from your new couch.
