5. The Ballroom at the Jane Hotel
The Jane Hotel is located in West Village with The Ballroom a hot spot for weekend partying. The design is lavish with an antique era about it. It almost feels as though you are partying the night away in the living room of someones mansion. There are smart leather couches and velvet drapes hanging from the windows as well as old-fashion portraits of naked individuals who don’t quite look like there are from this century. The music is fantastic and a fun atmosphere, just make sure to get there before 12, or prepare to queue.
6. Corn on the Cob and Tacos at La Esquina
At first glance, what appears to be a taco takeout/ retro diner, this Mexican beauty is full of surprises. The restaurant is hidden underground, down a steep staircase and then through the main kitchen. You are then directed to the tequila bar, with enough seating and a great ambiance. The bonkers decor and quirky vibe provides a great experience and the food, just delicious! The ‘Grilled Street Corn’ is heavenly, as well as their ‘Crispy Tortillas’. The menu is made for sharing which means you can try a good selection of the menu. Booking is a must! 114 Kenmare, New York, NY 10012.
7. Sushi at Bonst on Bond Street
The most fresh and good quality sushi we’ve eaten in a long time. Located in Soho, the restaurant has three levels, a lounge, the restaurant and bar and an elegant dining room. The service is fantastic and booking is a must! Tuna pizza is incredible!
8. Walk along the High Line
The High Line is a public park built on a historic rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattans West Side. When the weathers good, a walk along the High Line can be a fun day out. Starting from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street (between 10th and 12th Avenues).
9. Stroll through central park
Whether the sun is shinning, raining cats and dogs, or a snow storm, Central Park is something you can’t miss. Located in the central part of the borough of Manhattan and stretching across 843 acres of land, the park has lots to offer. Ranging from restaurants, attractions, leisure tours and entertainment.
10. Shopping on Mercer Street/ SoHo
While most people know Fifth Avenue as the best destination for shopping, nothing compares to Soho (downtown). A mixture of cheap, expensive, vintage and modern, classic and hip, this area is bursting with independent boutiques as well as well-known brands. A particular favorite would be the shops on Mercer Street, where you can definitely spend an entire afternoon wondering around and all within walking distance of each other.
