Where to Party 

The NYC party scene has so many different vibes depending on where you're at. Some clubs are super exclusive and hard to find, like the speakeasy style bar “Please Don’t Tell” (super strict dress code) where you enter through a phone booth inside of the restaurant. Of course there are the typical boujee bottle service clubs like 1oak and Tao. If you love caviar and day drinking champagne, Lavo is your place and if you want to get a little rowdy, try Beauty & Essex and have bottle service for breakfast!

Outfit Inspo 

When in NYC, channel your inner Gossip Girl and dress to IMPRESS! The NYC night scene is very seductive and mysterious, while the day time street style is more “off-duty model” casual. To cover all the bases, we suggest packing a couple pairs of your fav jeans, a knee length coat (which will tie any basic fit together), a few (classy) party dresses, and some chunky boots & sneakers!
