This is a great underground bar/restaurant just 2 blocks north of Washington Square Park. It is not part of the noisy Village bar scene which is centred around Bleeker and MacDougall. Actually in a quieter area in W9th between 5th and 6th. There is bar...More

Hotel Griffou is probably one of the best kept secrets in NYC. It's not actually a hotel, rather a restaurant in the basement of an apartment building. The decor is stunning. Each room decorated with its own intense flare and style, this is definitely one...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
