Best free she male hook up in nyc
Not so at Island to Island: Owner Danii Oliver taps her Trinidadian–St.Martins heritage for the fermentory, tasking microbes to create jun kombucha, hard cider flavored with sorrel and pineapple, and sugarcane beer.Offline began two years ago as a side gig between college friends Tim Kosters, who works at Artsy, and Adrian Yu, a film director, but their once-a-season “concept” parties (from ) now regularly sell out within hours.Besides booking prestige DJs (Mohawke played a Grammy party the night before his Offline set), they partner with new-media artists like lighting collective Nitemind, who’ve done shows for Kelela and placed neon bulbs throughout the bathhouse.Fruiggie offers what you’re unlikely to find elsewhere in the city: Toddlers, for instance, can attend a chakra art class (), giving your 2-year-old a familiarity with her seven chakras through song and snacks, or there’s a story-time class () to teach budding ecowarriors about subjects like sustainability through drawing projects done on a mini recycled easel.Jazz venues can be fickle in New York — witness the Stone’s move from its longtime Alphabet City locale to a New School campus theater — so music fans rejoiced when the 75 Club opened in the subterranean Tribeca space that used to hold Silver Lining, the jazz lounge that closed in 2013.Jack and Fanny’s With Jack and Fanny’s, the Upper East Side is now home to an indoor bocce court — Manhattan’s only one in a bar.The team behind nearby Bondurants opened this palatial spot and modeled it after a basement in a ’70s-era Italian home, right down to the mid-century-looking sofas surrounding a (nonworking) fireplace, the yellow leather bar stools, and the wooden floors, worn to an almost-bleached look by previous tenants.
Grab one of the 15 red-leather-topped stools at the marble bar if you’re there to unwind with an cocktail (the list tends toward classics like Manhattans and Eastside Rickeys), or head to the candlelit back area to relax at a table with club chairs.
Hop on “the boat” (that’s what you call the Staten Island Ferry to fit in with locals), board the railway, then get off at the Stapleton station to find yourself at a surprising venue: a serious cocktail lounge — the island’s first — called the Coupe.
Whereas your best option for drinking used to be beers at one of Staten Island’s fantastic pizza pubs, the Coupe, headed by bartender Edward Mango and with consulting collaborators such as Attaboy general manager Andrew Rice, introduces a romantic spot with no TVs and a craft-cocktail menu.
For the alcohol-averse, Island to Island offers pressed juices and smoothies boosted with ingredients like moinga seeds, spirulina, and, fittingly, brewer’s yeast.
The vice-and-virtue approach to drinking attracts a crowd as diverse as the menu, from parents (there are toys to keep kids entertained) to beer obsessives geeking out over the Haitian-chocolate-inspired Midnight porter, spiced with star anise and cinnamon ( for 22 ounces).
