ROMEO & JULIET

Except that Romeo is not Romeo…. but if you are up for dining and dancing in a gaudy playpen that would feel cozy to Russian billionaires, Middle Eastern playboys and the Mad Hatter, you have to go to the JULIET SUPPER CLUB.

Welcome to the explosive, Technicolor world of Juliet, a new mind-bender of a restaurant and lounge. The entire place look like the inside of a multicolored disco ball, everything in the smallish space is reflective and mirrored, from the disco-ball-tiled floor and walls, to the geometric reflective ceiling and mirror-covered columns. The tables are created to receive a large group pf people. Juliet wants that you bring your friends!! In fact, the plush blue booths and electric-blue tables are built for parties of up to 15.

Juliet is a club, but it is also a restaurant. The nightlife impresario Jon B teams up with the famous chef Todd English to create an exclusive and elaborate spot; the restaurant offers a full menu of Mediterranean-inspired fare.

Concerning the price of drinks, it could be worth: Belvedere with 7up for $16 or Belvedere with Redbull for $19
Past guests include Rihanna, Jay-Z, Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga, Perez Hilton, Chace Crawford, P Diddy …

HAVE THE NIGHT OF YOUR LIFE

You have to go to the AVENUE, the place to be and to be seen.

The concept combines a bar/lounge with moving lights, a lot of seating and some eating. There is a DJ booth, but no a real dance floor.

The door is harder than any door in NYC, so don’t bother unless you know somebody on the inside. Drinks are expensive, a vodka tonic will cost you $15. Plus, everyone in the crowd is either a CEO, a model, or a fashion designer. If you don’t like rap music, don’t go to the Avenue: there is more rap music that music to dance like House or Pop music.

HOW IS THE LIFE IN NYC?

A funny way to sum up the routine in the Big apple…

WHERE CAN I GO OUT TONIGHT?

THE STANDARD HOTEL

The Standard Hotel, which is situated in the Meat Packing District, is probably the most fashionable hotel of the moment. The black elevator, which broadcasts a psychedelic video, brings you all windows in the rooms that have a breathtaking view over the Hudson River. When you arrived in the 18th floor, there are the terrace and the Boom Boom Bar. I recommend it late in the day when the skyscrapers of the city lit up. This bar turns into a nightclub after 22h. The hotel is located above the High Line park on an old railway in the most fashionable district of NY.

5 NINTH

To find the cozy atmosphere of an authentic brick house in New York, the restaurant 5 Ninth is the perfect place. On two floors with fireplaces, exposed beams, old parquet and lighting candles, we have the feeling to be into the house of our grandmother. According to rumors, the food is great and the atmosphere is sweet. Plus, it is possible to eat in a lovely garden in summer.

ONE OF THE BETTER SPOT IN MANHATTAN

The Griffin opened in 2009, and it became very quickly one of the hottest spot in NYC.

If you have the chance to get in, you will have the feeling to make a party in an old and luxurious apartment.

The decor seemed Victorian-ish with dark wood, heavy dark velvet couches and chandeliers. Personally, I love the red lit chandelier in the middle of the room; just under it you have a podium where you can dance, and where everybody can see you! It’s the place for the dancers, you know these very pretty girls who are almost naked!

However, the space is not so bigger. There is no official dance floor, so the good way is to have your own table….

Plus, you will run into celebrities; Lindsay Lohan was in the Griffin on this Friday night.

Drinks are pricey, to give you some examples a mojito and a Tom Collins cost $20 each, and $12 for a shot.

I have already gone to the Griffin several times, and I could go every weeks!

A TRENDY BAR

GILT BAR, more than just the place to be seen? Absolutely!

You probably know the famous luxury Palace Hotel on Madison Avenue, but about its bar? The atmosphere at GILT Bar is chic and vibrant, with artisanal cocktails, extensive wines by the glass, and a relaxed bar menu. The mosaic floors and vaulted ceilings contrast with the modern bar designed by Patrick Jouin, a French designer.


 

If you’re hungry, you can order appetizers with your drinks. It’s quite expensive; between $16 and $34, but the food is very good; you have to taste it! I had ordered the charcuterie platter, and it was delicious. The only negative point is the lack of space at the Bar. Just few people can drink; most other people come in to enjoy the GILT restaurant.

The Gilt Bar is still a very good place to begin an evening or to spend a good moment with some good friends.

Information:
GILT bar is open 5:00 pm – 12:00 am Sunday – Thursday and 5:00 pm – 12:30 am Friday and Saturday.

A DRINK WITH CHUCK BASS

Chuck Bass? You don’t know Chuck Bass? You know the sexy and very rich guy who play in Gossip Girl…. Ok, I’m sure that you know him!  The Empire Hotel is became very famous thanks to this TV show.

When you walk on Columbus Circle, between the 62nd street and the 63RD street, you can’t miss the big Empire Hotel red neon on the rooftop.

The rooftop is nice, but not amazing. In fact, it is on the 12th floor, so you don’t have the most beautiful view on Manhattan. The Empire Hotel offers views of Lincoln Center as well as the Broadway & Columbus Avenue gateway to Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

You can take a drink during the week, but the ambiance is not crazy. I have already gone on a Thursday night, and there were just some clients of the hotel. It’s quiet, and nice if you want to talk with some friends. Plus, during the winter there is a chimney that bring an intimate sensation. The price are quiet expensive; $15 for drinks with vodka, whiskey and their juices. A tequila shot will cost you $12…, plus they serve you the drinks in plastic scratched glasses, that’s a little cheap! You also can eat, food is sub-par and a little overpriced; they just have a bar menu with appetizers.

Nevertheless, I recommend you to go on a Friday or Saturday night. The rooftop becomes a nightclub, and the atmosphere is very nice. You have to pay the entrance, I think it’s $10 or $20; it depends the day, and if you are a girl or a boy. Otherwise, the music is pretty good and varied; there are House, Rnb, and pop music. During the winter, they close up one side of the rooftop, but you always can enjoy the view. The dress code is upscale casual.

The Empire Hotel is not the best place in Manhattan, but you can enjoy it if you are with good friends.
