No Street Lights in NYC

New York-based photographer Guillaume Gaudet just sent us an email to show us this photo he took of a dark and quiet NYC. He shot it on October 30 or a day after Hurricane Sandy hit New York.

"It's on Washington Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This view is well-known. Normally, there are street lights that give a sort of harsh light and it's difficult, by night, to have…

The Hotel on Rivington - Lower East Side, NYC ( 11 Pics)

THOR is the epitome of sleek, modern and sexy high-fashion hotels (in both design and clientele), and one of the hottest spots in the Lower East Side. I've been there on multiple occasions for its lounge and nightlife. You walk in and you’ll feel like a celebrity—there is even a red-carpet waiting for you (literally). All of the walls are floor-to-ceiling glass, which means breathtaking…

More NYC Nightlife (because this city doesn't sleep)

THE GATES - 290 8th Avenue (between 24th & 25th St.)

Sooo my friend took me here Saturday night. It was formerly the Biltmore Room (the marble walls alone have been valued at $2.4 million), and reopened as a “super-luxury lounge”: the Gates. It operates with an “ambassador” program that awards keys to 125 members of…

The term comes from a patron’s manner of ordering an alcoholic drink without raising suspicion—bartenders would tell patrons to be quiet and “speak easy".

Yes, bars with this theme still exist in New York (Little…

1st stop: POP BURGER 58-60 9th Ave (near 15th St.)

This hip and trendy burger joint is also a bar/club/lounge. Thank god for hookups— we walked in and were seated at a table with plush red-velvet couches. Everything was free: burgers, fries, beer, juice, and an entire bottle of vodka. The economics of it is this: there’s always a handful ballers who are willing to drop a couple grand… Continue

1st stop: Little Branch - 20 7th Ave. South & Leroy St.

Little Branch is an underground speakeasy nestled beneath a mysterious corner entrance. Always opt for the ‘bartender’s choice’: simply name your favorite ingredients, and they’ll concoct a potent surprise for you! My drink was a curious mix of egg yolk, cream, port, and bourbon. Extremely strong, yet rich…
