When you’re ready to dial it to ‘eleven’ and have a full night out, head to the Village for an amazing dinner at an old school New York tavern, a little jazz and a prohibition style cocktail bar open until 4AM. This night out always delivers, just make sure you have the energy to keep up with it.



Minetta Tavern

$$$ French bistro fare with vintage style tavern
113 Macdougal St, New York, NY 10012 (near Minetta)
(212) 475-3850


Minetta is a warm and inviting tavern. It’s part 1920s old school prohibition style steakhouse and part French bistro. It’s well regarded for its steaks and the Burger has earned lots of accolades. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.

Fat Cat

$$ Jazz club with pool, ping pong, board games serving beer and wine
75 Christopher St, New York, NY 10014 (near W 4th street)
(212) 675-6056


There are a ton of great jazz clubs around the city but Fat Cat is a personal favorite. It’s a super laid back place with a number of performances throughout the evening, pool tables, and decor that loosely resembles your high school friends basement. Grab a drink and a seat on the couch and sit back and take it in.

Employees Only

$$$ | Inventive cocktails in prohibition-style bar
510 Hudson St, New York, NY 10014 (near 10th street)


After heading out of Fat Cat you’re just a 5 minute walk west along Christopher street to get to Employees Only. A simple green awning opens up to a wooded bar that’s warmly lite with a combination of accent lighting and votives. It’s usually pretty crowded but if you can snag a few seats in the pack it’s the perfect balance of a quiet space you can catchup with friends admit the buzzing bar.
