Favourite rooftop bar
The Salon de Ning at The Peninsula is a favourite amongst New Yorkers and travellers alike for its enchanting setting and world-class cocktails. Featuring dramatic skyline views over Fifth Avenue, Salon de Ning is a chic rooftop bar featuring two outdoor terraces complemented by an intimate interior bar. Lounge seating areas allow for an exclusive, relaxing experience while overlooking the bustling city below.


The latest opening and one to visit
SoHo House has made its way to Brooklyn! The club’s opening comes a year after SoHo House opened the first New York outpost of their restaurant Cecconi’s on the ground floor of the Empire Stores. A major draw of the new club is its ample outdoor pool and roof space, with the backdrop of a mostly unobstructed panoramic view of downtown Manhattan across the East River, framed by the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. Another perk for the new club? It’s easy to get there on the subway!


A must do when in New York 
The Marea is one of my favourite restaurants and has the most amazing chefs. It’s renowned for its high-end Italian seafood cuisine. Marea’s menu reads like a map of the sea. You can experience a variety of dishes with selections devoted to crudo, oysters, antipasti and handmade pastas. The menu also includes composed fish dishes, whole fish preparations and a selection of meat and side dishes to round out the extensive offerings. Marea is definitely worth a visit! 


A hidden gem
Freemans restaurant is a hidden gem serving great American food. Tucked into a cozy space at the end of an unused alley off the Bowery (Lower East Side of NYC), Freemans specializes in simple American cuisine inspired by Old World traditions. The quaint, rustic interior features Colonial tavern decor like wooden chairs and quirky patterns.
