There is no denying that New York is no friend to those who fear the burden of choice.
Lucky for you, we have put together a list of NY’s finest hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars to help transform the Big Apple from an overwhelming concrete jungle to something shaken,
Even devoted manhattanites are tempted by Williamsburg’s Whythe Hotel, a refurbished textile factory with an industrial, luxe aesthetic. This hip hotel sports one of the coolest rooftop bars in Brooklyn, with insta-worthy views across the East River to Manhattan. Perhaps The Ludlow Hotel is more up your alley. This boutique hotel, tucked away on the Lower East Side, is the perfect place to kick back by the fire and enjoy their speciality cocktail, the Chai Matsuda.
For your morning dose of caffeine and acai, we recommend The Butcher’s Daughter;
a plant-centric juice bar and cafe in Downtown New York. Be sure to book yourself into Vandal, which has proved itself to be a popular dinner spot among manhattanites.
For all you sweet tooths out there, check out Momofuku Milk Bar for a Birthday Cake Shake and a piece of Crack Pie. If you’re looking for a mind blowing way to spend your Saturday in the city, catch the L train to Smorgasburg; an open air food market that is fast becoming the food mecca of Brooklyn. Make sure you try the Ramen Burger. You’ll have to see it to believe it.
If there is one thing NYC is notorious for it’s rooftop bars. Sip on an Espresso Martini
seven-teen stories up at Pod 39, or wet your lips with a refreshing Margarita at Le Bain
on the top of The Standard Hotel.

WHAT TO PACK
It’s all about the nonchalant look. New Yorkers celebrate the effortlessly cool.
Don’t over think it. Stick with your go-to denim, pair it with a 90’s inspired logo tee
and throw it back with a bomber.
