1. THE ‘IT’ PLACE TO STAY: THE ACE HOTEL
Midtown Manhattan, 20 W 29th Street, New York City, NY 10001
Whether you’re a fashionista or an art lover, The Ace Hotel offers an unforgettable experience for all! With industrial-chic décor, exquisite in-house restaurants and a close proximity to all the trendiest hotspots, there runs no risk of scuffing your heels all over the city.
Insider Tip: Be sure to snap some retro pics with your very own in-room polaroid cam!
Traveling shouldn’t imply yoga pants. Guarantee a stylish check-in by accessorizing your tousled hair with a leather cover-up, a trendy knit and some slim-fit leggings.
2. THE FOODIE FAVORITE: ABC COCINA
Manhattan, 38 E 19th Street, New York City, NY 10003
Enjoy everything from gourmet tacos to lavish table snacks under spot-lit chandeliers and hot pops of pink. You’ll be just as enticed by the menu as the restaurant’s stunning rustic charm.
Fine house margarita; tinged with pink grapefruit, basic or mango essence.
Spring-pea guacamole, raw “sashimi” tuna, pulled pork tacos, arroz con pollo rize and seasonal popsicles for dessert. Yum!
3. THE NIGHT CAP: THE EMPIRE HOTEL ROOFTOP
Upper West Side, 44W 63rd Street, New York, NY 10023, 12th floor
The Empire Rooftop is perfect for watching the city light up after sunset and sipping drinks by the candlelight. With a whimsical garden, little loveseats and an exclusive DJ, this upscale lounge is ideal for date night or a casual night cap with the girls.
4. THE BEST KEPT SECRET: APOTHEKE
Manhattan, 9 Doyers St, New York, NY 10079
Forget the typical sit-down, it’s time you discovered the beautiful underground. Check out Apotheke, a speakeasy serving up specialty cocktail ‘prescriptions’ made with exotic herbs & organic fruits by hot mixologists in lab coats.
Insider Tip: Keep the address nearby, it’s so underground; your cabby might not be able to find it.
Recommended Cocktail: A Guava Mama; Mexican Guava, Vodka, Cognac, Anise, All Spice & Lime
Choose a bold block and hemline that hits way above the knee for a sultry night out.
