February in NYC, celebrate the month of LOVE

Published: January 25th, 2019

As we settle into Valentine Season 2019 here in NYC, warming up with a romantic destination within the city is just what the heart is craving. The city is filled with gems all year round, but the winter wonderland it becomes is truly one of a kind. Whether it’s a cultural attraction or a foodie excursion, let’s celebrate the month of LOVE.

The River Café | New York Water Taxi

Heading over to Brooklyn via the “heated” water taxi is a great way to see some of the city’s impressive architecture via your aquatic viewpoint. Show off your New York City logistical skills by allowing the water taxi to drop you right at the doorstep of one of the best restaurants for a sunset romantic dinner at “The River Cafe”. This waterside mecca for amazing food has been home to top-notch chefs for quite some time now.  Pro-tip- take the water taxi back to 42nd street and the boat will stop directly in front of the Statue Of Liberty to give you time for your Instagram photo shoot with Lady Liberty.

Next to diamonds, shoes are a girl’s best friend and why not take your valentine to Sarah Jessica Parker‘s brand new shoe store in the South Street Seaport historic district called “SJP”.  On the roof of the South Street Seaport pier is a hidden ice-skating rink and a gorgeous cocktail lounge which boasts stunning cityscape views of lower Manhattan, downtown Brooklyn, and the east river crossings called “R17”. This Opulent bar will not disappoint with its romantic ambiance and exquisite menu for delectable bites and craft cocktails.

Dizzys – Jazz at Lincoln Center | The Aviary NYC

Take your love to one of the most beautiful jazz clubs in all of the city called “Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola”. Nestled above Columbus Circle sits this intimate performance space, which regularly hosts world-class artists. If this club’s view doesn’t impress your date then head even further upstairs to the 35th floor within the Mandarin Oriental (also within the same building) to a cocktail lounge called “The Aviary”. Between the views of Central Park and the master mixologist on duty, it’s hard not to feel like a New York Insider with this lounge in the sky.
