When traveling to New York City expect to spend a good amount of your time in the Midtown area seeing the shows on Broadway, the lights of Times Square, the skating rinks of Bryant Park and Rockefeller Center along with the views from Top of the Rock and Empire State Building. These are "can't miss" items on the checklist. However, after a full day of seeing the city's incredible museums, landmarks and culture it is time to experience the nightlife.
A premium hosted group tour is a great way to dive into the local Downtown neighborhoods while meeting people from all over the world. Tours kick off at one of the trendy bars right on the East Village/Lower East Side border be it The Skinny Bar, The Grayson, Hair of the Dog or Bar One and One. After drinks and introductions it's a walk back in time to the Prohibition Era and the hidden speakeasies of NYC, such as Beauty & Essex, Blind Barber, Bathtub Gin or The Back Room. After some old-time cocktails live music is next on the itinerary: Arlene's Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall and Pianos each offer up a nightly roster of up-and-coming artists.
The night is not complete without catching the panoramic views from a luxury rooftop lounge be it Make Believe, Mr. Purple, the DL or 50 Bowery. Get out the camera as little compares with the Manhattan skyline at night. The evening's final stop dials up the energy in a neighborhood teeming with lounge and club options. Every night finds a different dance floor: the top 40 sounds of Hill & Dale, the basement club at Los Feliz, the chic underground lounge at Kind Regards or the Moroccan hookah lounge Le Souk. For the lovers of hip hop and Caribbean sounds, Katra Lounge and B.O.B are on point.
