Getting to New YorkEdit

Exploring New YorkEdit

Practical information and resourcesEdit

Due to the chaotic traffic and the lack of car parking, it is advisable to travel around the city using public transport . Taxi cabs are usually not the best means of travelling around New York, as they must often compete with ferocious traffic and are significantly more expensive than the subway. The bus service, reliable and economical, is often too slow. Most routes operate 24 hours a day and those buses painted blue and white are the most comfortable, as all of them are fitted with an air-conditioning system. The subway is the quickest and most efficient way of moving around the city. The network consists of 469 stations and many lines are operational 24 hours a day. The carriages are modern, well- lit and fitted with air-conditioning. The other districts, although less interesting, form a tourist’s point of view, play a fundamental role in making up this varied metropolis.

New York City also known as The City That Never Sleeps, certainly lives up this mantra when it comes to night life. Whatever type of vibe you are looking for, New York City has it. The cities diverse character is echoed passionately through diverse nightlife. Whether its hitting the clubs in the trendy meat packing district, or Salsa Dancing in Queens, you better be rested and ready for a long night on the town. Depending on your mood, here are some local recommendation on places to party in the city.

Luxury BarsEdit

2nd Floor on the Clinton - 67 Clinton Street, Lower East Side

  • This intimate LES bar is one of a growing wave of bars styling itself as a speakeasy. What this means in practice, is a small, intimate room that’s somewhat hidden away up, in this case up a staircase inside Barramundi. A former private party room, it’s now a bar in its own right, with an appealingly low key and stylish vibe. Large parties are discouraged – the place seats less than 40 - and the focus is very much on the drinks and the atmosphere. The classic cocktails are carefully prepared and they stock an impressive range of spirits. They also serve some superb hand-made chocolate truffles from Roni-Sue’s if you feel the need for something sweet.

Apotheke - 9 Doyers Street, Lower East Side

  • The bartenders at Apotheke are at the top of their game. The drinks here are truly inspired. Housed in a one-time Opium den this super cool spot isn’t that easy to find (look for the red Gold Flower Restaurant sign), but once your inside get ready for drinks to die for. Their house ‘prescriptions’ include the Sparkling Star, a divine blend of star fruit, aloe jelly, vodka and champagne, and a Vanilla Rum Julep. More adventurous palettes may enjoy their Strawberry Fennel concoction. The interior has clung onto that opulent old world feel: lots of candlelit and a gigantic marble bar. On top of this you can see the tools of the trade, an array of pestles and mortars, marinating herbs, not to mention the glass jars containing their specialty elixirs.

230 Fifth - 230 5th Avenue, Lower West Side

  • Located, as the name suggests, at 230 5th Avenue this is the kind of bar that the expense account was made for. Ride up in the gilded elevator and enter an opulent mirror-lined room, art deco in style but with a twist of late 20th century excess. The bar is peppered with inviting suede sofas and striking modernist furnishings. Ascend another level, up the chrome staircase and you arrive at a stunning rooftop space that stays open all year round. The views are utterly stunning, the New York skyline shining, the Empire State Building standing totemic before you. Cocktails are pricey but decent and there's an admirably varied wine list.

Bubble Lounge - 228 West Broadway, Lower West Side

  • Who wants to wallow in Champagne? So asked Cole Porter. If you’re the type to raise your hand and answer yes to such a question, then the aptly named Bubble Lounge was built for you. It’s an atmospheric bar, spacious with high ceilings and exposed brick walls. Vintage champagne posters add colour to the place and, perhaps inevitably, champagne bottles dominate the décor. Below the main bar they have an expansive wine cellar, stocked with over 300 types of the fizzy stuff. All the familiar names are there and many are available by the glass. If you’re bubble-phobic, they do a decent range of cocktails and their food, French in influence – cheeses, caviar and the like – adds to the appeal. The perfect place for a celebratory splurge.

Aspen Social Club - 157 W. 47th Street - Midtown Manhattan

  • A winter wonderland in the middle of Midtown, the Aspen Social Club brings a slice of the ski slopes to the city. Housed in Vikram Chatwal’s new Stay Hotel, the bar resembles a log-cabin, with a dramatic antler chandelier and a glass wall covered with images of snow-covered trees. The place has a proper party feel and despite the wintry atmosphere, the crowd is glammed up, rather than bundled in fleeces and furs. Music is loud and it gets rammed on the weekend, so is not the best spot for an intimate tête-à-tête, but the drinks are excellent and a fun night is pretty much guaranteed.

El Cobre - 95th Avenue, Midtown Manhattan

  • The first thing you notice is the fountain. Walk into Ravi DeRossi's East 6th Street bar and restaurant El Cobre (appropriately situated next door to Cienfuegos and Carteles), and you’ll find the room dominated by a statue of the blessed virgin of El Cobre, with her palms out stretched and spouting water. With its weathered walls, tiled floors and abundance of copper trim, the functional but atmospheric space has been designed to resemble a Cuban town square. The cocktail list has a similar Cuban twist with classics including the Floridita and more adventurous option including the Hot or Not, which blends rum with chilli and cumin. Unsurprisingly there’s a Hemingway-inspired cocktail, a potent mix of absinthe and bitters. Food is also Cuban in influence and includes tasty tamales and a superlative grilled snapper.


Cielo - 18 Little West 12th Street, Meat Packing District

  • Cielo is a stat-of-the-art space in downtown's ultra chic Meat Packing District that provides a musi program specializing in electroinc music. It is a haven for mature individuals seeking intelligent nightlife with neither the hassle of large clubs nor the elitism of upscale lounges with too many VIP rooms. Once you are in Cielo, there will be no more ropes, checkpoints, or rules. Securitiy's goal is to compliment the experience, not hinder it. Cielo has set a new level in New York nightlife by going back to the basics: the best DJs, a strong door, impeccable service, stunning decor, and a world renowned sound system by legendary UK sound system pioneers, Funktion One. Cielo is open five nights a week, and is definitey holds to its repuatation is being a premier nightclub in NYC.

40/40 Club - 6 West 25th Street - Lower West Side

  • There are sports bars and then there are sports bars. This lavish lounge owned by rapper Jay Z is a sedate, under-stated affair. Just kidding. The 40/40 is full-on bling, yet not unsophisticated. A sprawling two-level club, it’s bursting with ceiling-suspended swing chairs and Italian marble floors. The sports come courtesy of a wall of LCD flat-screen televisions. Beyond that, there’s a separate cognac lounge and four VIP rooms as well as Jay Z's Private Room, an indulgent space packed with leather sofas and 60-inch plasma screens, not to mention pool tables and games consoles. If you’re looking for a memorable night out with the lads (and have a suitably thick wallet), this is the room to book. Later in the evening, DJs blast the place with R&B and hip-hop, transforming the joint from sports bar to night club proper.

Marquee - 289 10th Avenue, Lower West Side

  • When it first opened in 2003, nightlife impresarios Jason Strauss and Noah Tepperberg's spacious dancehall was the ultimate nightclub experience. Now that the allure has worn off a bit, it's still one of the best NYC nightclubs for finding a sweaty dance party. Hip-pop Thursdays are the club's hottest night, which also makes it the toughest night to get in. If you want to guarantee your way through the velvet rope, you can opt to spend $650 for a table.

Oak - 453 W. 17th Street, Lower West Side

  • It's rarely too crowded at this celeb hangout from Scott Sartiano and Richie Akiva, and the door is one of the toughest to crack if you don't know somebody. Once inside, you'll be greeted by a tasteful decor and a spacious dance floor that flanked by lots of folks sipping $20 cocktails. This is one of the better late-night spots as things don't usually pick up until around 2 A.M., and this New York City nightclub always seems to be the center of some Page Six story - whether it's Lindsey Lohan stealing a coat or somebody getting beat up. And make sure you dress to the nines; it's always a fashion show inside.
