Man, oh man. Even after however many times I have visited New York City I am amazed at just how much and what an endless assortment of dining opportunity at your fingertips I really mean it. Duck Duck bar made our list because it is one of our all-time favorite hangout spots. Located in Brooklyn, which is still very much New York City for those who might be living under a rock, this bar is the hot spot for the younger local scene and has a wonderfully charming and cozy interior. And when I say cozy, I mean… sometimes this little nook gets so packed that you barely have walking room.
But on a nice summer evening our friends consider it one of the best go-to, sure thing places in the area to grab a drink and relax because you can just throw on a pair of jeans, listen to some nice beats and dance the night away in front of the worn out couch in the corner that every makes out on.
However, if you are looking for something different, there are plenty of other more sophisticated (or less – if that’s your thing) options available at your disposal. We absolutely love the Wythe Hotel located in Williamsburg because it’s rooftop bar is just to die for and it offers a breathtaking view of the city at night.
Whatever you are looking for, chances are it is within walking distance. While I would seriously love to spend then next few weeks experiencing and then writing about all of the food and nightlife opportunities throughout The Big Apple, there are so many better websites and writers who have covered the topic in amazing detail, that the best I can do to help out would be to simply pass you along to their sites. Maybe though if you could bookmark us so that we can get some credit for our effort, that would be awesome.
The magazine Timeout New York is more a cultural and lifestyle guide to New York rather than simply a review guide, even New Yorkers still get it, so it must be good. It’s a great way to stay plugged in and up to date on everything happening in the city week by week, day by day.
The previous two are the obvious ones that have grown way beyond their original locals, there is a zagat and a timeout for just about every major metropolitan area across the country. There are also smaller websites that provide locals perspective, some that have grown others that remain small, Eater is of course one of the better known ones, while Circa New York remains small but popular and growing.
