New York tips please?

just noticed Daughters (not Daughter) are playing in Brooklyn, but its sold out…

This brewery under the Pulaski Bridge had a lovely little taproom and some tasty sours / saisons. Had a plum sour and it was incredible.

thanks, got that one marked on google maps already. looks great

I’m really enjoying this thread

My hot NYC tip is; use Starbucks for the loo. There never seemed to be enough ‘rest rooms’ around but there’s plenty of Starbucks and they never seem to mind. Pop in, buy a box of matches or something, get the key, Bob’s your uncle.

i hate starbucks. I can not even set foot in that place, let alone spend my money on those corporate wankers

and the coffee is supposed to be shit I hear

I was looking for wifi in Midtown Manhattan and there was one called WuTangLAN.

This place is great: Mela Foundation

Mela soundation looks interesting. Just looked it up on google maps and one of the reviews made me chuckle.

LSD themed “art museum”.

Top tip! Went last month and found that most subway stations are credit card only now. Just to confuse non-Americans the machines demand a zip-code. Took me a day to figure out but you can bypass this by entering ‘00000’.

ha, good to know.

Saves having to walk everywhere like I did for a day.

flights to New York are dirt cheap at the moment because so much competiton. I am flying direct with Virgin atlantic for £250 rtn


Yes, last time I walk to New York

Went here and they had a good range of craft beer on-

It also was also across the road from this place-

thanks for that. taproom happy hour will be on our list.



If you’re in the East Village I recommend St. Dymphnas (118 St. Mark’s place). Not the most extensive beer selection, but just a very good atmosphere, particularly on a weekday afternoon. Around the corner is the Odessa diner (119 avenue A) if you need Russian-American food open 24h.

Go to Williamsburg

Apparently st. Dymphnas is closing down this weekend
