One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is watching the city transform into a winter wonderland. The city itself feels even more magical during the holidays and you can’t seem to escape the holiday cheer. The festive spirit even spreads inside, to restaurants and shops. These places quickly become hot spots in December.
Below are our tops picks on where to eat and drink this holiday season in New York City.
This desert mecca is decorated in decorations all year round but feels especially festive during the holidays. Made famous by one of my personal favorite Holiday movies Serendipity, it is worth a visit.
Come December time this German restaurant feels like someone threw up Christmas all over the place, in the best way. Plus they have mulled wine and egg nog so who can say no to that.
Christmas lights engulf this restaurant year round but if there is ever a time to visit it’s the holidays. Cash only so come prepared. Oh and did we mention it’s BYOB 🙂
One of our all time favorite rooftops made waves last year when its’ Igloos’s was all over social media. This is one of the most unique and fun experience to have during the Holidays. The igloos are back so get ready to feel like you are in the North Pole.
This East Village bar gets a Christmas makeover come the Holidays but with a twist. Here you can have your Christmas cocktails with an island splash too.
This East Village watering hole offers up a special festive menu while also being completely consumed with Holiday decor. To top it off it even has a Hanukkah corner!
Hi, I’m Jay. A twenty-something-year-old living in New York. There’s not all that much to say about me other than; I love to eat, drink and travel. I’ve lived in some incredible cities from Paris to New York to Florence, and along the way, I’ve crossed off a ton on my bucket list. I hope we inspire you to go out there and see for yourself, just how beautiful life can be.
