Aged Whiskey...In a Day?
Now Playing: Know your spirits: Whisky
New Yorker Andrew Goble wasn’t sure it was possible. So we sent him into the streets with a calculator:
Arrive at JFK and skip the line for extortionate taxis. Instead, ride the subway (.75) to 42nd Street, where you’ll check into Yotel (9 for two nights), a futuristic budget hotel with a robot for a bellhop. Now it’s dinnertime: Uber downtown for a wood-fired pie from Pasquale Jones and learn to pair white wine (from France!) with your pizza (0). Then hit the beer-and-shot double-header at Botanica Bar (), where people you’d actually like sober go to get wild, and Milano’s (), one of the few old bars in NYC that haven’t become a tourist trap (because it’s so narrow it can only fit, like, four of them). Finish with Sand Tigers at Tropical 128 ( ), a campy club that feels like a degenerate Rainforest Café.
All Day Saturday
Walk the High Line all the way down the West Side and pop in to High Street on Hudson for its gut-busting, hangover-soothing egg sandwich, the Pastrami & Hash (). After that, swing through the new Whitney Museum () for a culture fix (even if you’re really there for the roof-deck views). Now wander the twisty, townhome-lined streets of the West Village until you find the unmarked door for Chumley’s, a Prohibition-era speakeasy with Kale-era dinner options (0). Close out the night at Up & Down (0), which represents everything fun (and not fun!) about trying to go to a scene-y dance club in New York. (ALSO READ How to do Maldives like a Bollywood star)
Uber down to Union Square to experience two shopping meccas that double as cultural theatre. Your first stop is Flight Club, a sneaker wonderland stocked with all the rare kicks you can’t find back home (0). A block away is The Strand, where the books New Yorkers have read to pieces go for as low as a buck. Then it’s brunch at Noreetuh (), the Hawaiian restaurant that dares to turn Spam into a gourmet dish – which is pretty much a culinary microcosm of your entire weekend.
Now take a cab to the airport (). You’re worth it.
