New York

So you and the girls finally settled on New York city as your weekend getaway? Great choice, easy to get to and with tons of things to do, New York city is THE perfect place to bond and have fun with your best gal friends.  Now that’s the rub, with so many choices, you don’t want to waste a minute of your weekend. Real Style has put together a fun guide on where to eat, shop, play in New York city to make your trip planning just a bit easier!


Known for its famous restaurants, NYC is home to all the food of the world. Buddakan offers Asian fusion cuisine in a swanky, upscale atmosphere. At $30-60 per dish, you may want to save this one for a special event. Alma‘s year-round rooftop patio offers a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline, while serving Mexican-inspired dishes. If looking for a sweet treat, you can’t go wrong with Serendipity 3 and their world-famous frozen hot chocolate.


As a fashion capitol of the world, shopping is a must in New York. With names like Hugo Boss, Versace and Miu Miu, Century 21 is the place to go for designer clothing at bargain prices. You don’t have to buy jewelry to get yourself an iconic blue box from Tiffany & Co. They also offer kitchenware and perfect gifts like key rings. If you’re looking for shoes, the Shoe Market offers you a fashionable, yet comfortable wide selection of names. And there’s always Bloomingdale’s massive shoe department.


It’s not a weekend getaway without drinking and dancing. Greenhouse is New York’s first eco-friendly nightclub. Housed in a bi-level SoHo event space built from recycled materials, this lounge hosts weekly parties for fashionable up-and-comers. Charlie’s Bar and Kitchen feels like a place where everybody knows your name. Featured in New York Magazine, this friendly Bronx bar has a daily happy hour that includes $1 oysters and half off the entire bar. What more do you need? Dream Downtown hotel holds three different types of fun at its Meatpacking District location. We recommend Electric Room and PH-D, located in the basement and the penthouse, respectively.


Broadway offers a huge assortment of entertainment. There are so many musicals and plays to see. You won’t go wrong with the 2013 Tony Award winner for Best Musical: Kinky Boots about a young man trying to keep his father’s shoe factory in business. Off-Broadway there’s the popular Avenue Q. Don’t let the puppets put you off, this Tony-winning comedy is for grown-ups and there’s plenty of adult humour to remind you. If you’re more into plays, Of Mice And Men, starring Hollywood names James Franco and Leighton Meester, runs until July 27.
