A Hedonist’s guide to…

New York

City Club Hotel
Once a stately private club the City Club Hotel is a cool choice for an exclusive set.

Brings grandeur and glamour to the Big Apple comedy scene...
Cipriani Downtown
Dress in the day's designer purchases and join the jet-set crowd for Bellinis and people watching.

One of Brooklyn's best live-music clubs...
Hundred Acres
Comforting and comfortable. Particularly popular for the rustic brunch.
Burger Joint
A no-frills approach to well-made food is what people love best.

The Hudson is a brilliant reflection of the boldness and diversity of the city that never sleeps.
Chelsea Bicycles
Chelsea Bicycles offer high-end bikes for rent for a genteel pedal...
Therapy
The gay crowd are flocking to Hell's Kitchen for a little late-night Therapy...
1 Oak
Subtle it ain't. Sexy it can be. Over the top, all the time!
City Center
NY City Center is known for its expressive dance and dramatic theatre...
Pegu Club
Perfectly mixed cocktails and a chic crowd at this SATC favourite...
The Mansfield
Situated in Midtown East the Mansfield blends seemlessly in with its rather grand surroundings.
Riverside Park
Riverside Park offers picturesque views of the Hudson River and is perfect for a sunny stroll...
Bryant Park
Bryant Park is perfect place to enjoy a spot of peace and quiet amid the chaos that surrounds you.
Statue of Liberty
Lady Liberty is one of NYC's most iconic landmarks - pity it's a bit of a schlep to get there...
Madison Avenue
If you're in town to exploit the great exchange rate look no further than Madison - it's home to every designer you can think of. Happily one of our favourite lunch spots Le Bilboquet is about half way up.
Soho Grand
A wonderful hotel to relax in but also the ideal place to entertain in glitz and glamour.
The W Union Sq.
W Union Square's landmark 1911 Guardian Life building has the city at it's fingertips.
Raines Law Room
A 'neo-speakeasy' with on-trend cocktails and a whiff of 1920s nostalgia...
East Village & Noho
Whilst this area lacks the high-octane impact of Soho's shops there are some great alternative boutiques to be found - particularly if you're a vintage fan.
Rockefeller Center
Built by one of the quintessential industrialist American families the Rockefeller Center is a mixture of views, shops, restaurants and live music...
The Mark
A recession defying refurbishment has embellished the elegance and exclusivity of this luxury hotel.
Scarpetta
This food defies description. Be similarly dazzled by the cellar holding 3,000 bottles of wine.
Garment & Theater Districts
These parts don't have an abundance of shops but there are some good ones tucked away in the otherwise unprepossessing streets. Top of the pops is a small but perfectly formed Manolo Blahnik stuffed to the gills with fantastic shoes.
Beauty & Essex
One New York restaurant that's been described as a bit like the city itself; grungy and confusing on the outside but with a loud, glamorous, surprising, beating young heart.
The Circle Line
Take a different view of Manhattan - this time from the water...
Crowne Plaza Times Square
Spacious and sumptuous rooms; a recent $85 million dollar facelift has been money well spent.
The Box
