  1. The NoMad Hotel

Avraham-Glattman-NomadThe NoMad Hotel is one of coziest yet luxurious hotels in NYC. Its rooms are designed with dark, earthy and wood tones throughout this twelve story building. The Parlour is a great spot to see the food being prepared. A visit to the NoMad would not be complete without stopping in the library. There is no other place that has such a beautiful ambiance from the dim lighting on each shelf. The menu and drinks are spectacular so be sure to take your time while you stop by. Even during the day, the atrium has such organic dim lighting. It is a must experience for any New Yorker or tourist.


  1. Baby’s All Right

By day, it has a great, inexpensive menu paired with good drinks and by night it hosts high-energy parties with great performances by underground artists. You can always depend on Baby’s All Right to never let you down with a great night if you like to dance.


  1. Rough Trade

Avraham-Glattman-RoughA record store and a concert venue go hand-in-hand at this hot spot located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Rough Trade gives visitors everything they want with their extensive collection of records in the open, industrial atmosphere. The alternative/rock venue aspect of the spot is located in the back which fits about 250 people. Originally, Rough Trade opened in London in the 1970s.


  1. The Box

An experience at The Box is comparative to an elegant yet edgy burlesque show. If elaborate and eccentric dining are what you need from NYC then The Box is the place for you. To find The Box, you must look past a graffiti covered door in the Lower EastSide. This venue is for people who enjoy late night entertainment with incredible energy, food, and drinks. It is a rather small venue so be prepared to become intimate with many people in the theatre on a big night.
