We know, not everyone in New York City likes to endure the wrath of ruthless bouncers at an exclusive Manhattan club. Skip too long lines at the usual too cool for school venues and check out an A-list cabaret club in Greenwich Village. Music salon (Le) Poisson Rouge or “The Red Fish” is a black and crimson space where suspended fish tank chandeliers make guests ooh and ahh upon arrival. After ordering an absinthe cocktail, grab a velvet red front row seat and watch performers, such as Blondie’s Deborah Harry, strut their stuff on the glitzy, majestic stage. Shows at (Le) Poisson Rouge change every night, which means you can catch Andrew W.K. live one night (Party Hard, anyone?) and a sultry burlesque performance the next evening, courtesy of Manhattan’s most gorgeous temptresses. Enjoy a taste of Paris with a New York City flair and more importantly, have an amazing time without unnecessary fuss.
You’ll never grow tired of the view at the 100th Bomb Group. This super-sized French-style farmhouse overlooks the runways at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport so you can spend the evening watching the planes land and take off. This place is elegance all the way, and they don’t make the bride lift a finger. The staff at the 100th Bomb Group handles every detail of your big day, right down to your invitations and transportation. All you have to do is a find a dress (and a groom!) and show up. They take care of the rest. Prices aren’t cheap, but you won’t know how much it’s going to cost you until you take a tour. They’ll give you a detailed estimate then.
It doesn't get much more mid-century modern than inside the 101 Coffee Shop. From the chunky stone wall to the brown leather booths, everything at this Hollywood hangout is utterly groovy. Located on the ground level of a motel and a favorite haunt for the hungry since the late 1930s, the 101 Coffee Shop, which has had various names and owners, features an array of upscale diner food plus items that appeal to vegans and vegetarians. It also whets the appetite of location scouts who have cast the coffee shop in a number of commercials and feature films, including the 1990s hit Swingers.
Cyclers unite! This highly sought after class is all about incorporating strength to the lower half of the body. Expect to peddle while pulling on resistance bands at the same time. SoulCycle is described as “an intense cardio-sculpt workout” using cycling to sweat within minutes. Spinning here will make any ride outside seem like a walk in the park. If you’re in dire need to build strength and tone muscles, SoulCycle is where both beginners and veterans go to accomplish exactly that.
For a summer activity with a philanthropic edge, try one of the many fundraising walks that take place, many along the waterfront (both river and bay). The HarborWalk and Run, for example, is in it’s 10th year and supports Tufts Medical Center, including the Floating Hospital for Children -- which was once, really, a hospital boat that took children with breathing issues out into Boston Harbor in the summer time to find relief from poor air quality. Join a team or create your own and walk 6 miles along the South Boston waterfront and Pleasure Bay, or run a 5K in support of a wonderful institution.
Of all places to host a wedding, a parking garage probably doesn't cross many people's minds. But we're not talking about just any parking garage. The 1111 Lincoln Road garage, designed by the Swiss architectural firm, Herzog & deMeuron, is a mixed-use open-air structure that offers panoramic views of Miami Beach. The building's seventh floor is available for events and has been the site of classy affairs during some of Miami's most important events such as Art Basel and the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. It has also been the site of weddings. Couples choosing this as their site will definitely stand out and guests will live an unforgettable experience as they take in the impressive open-air space and gorgeous views.
Stepping into 1160 Hair is like entering another world, a magical place. Its whimsical décor, with faux grass-covered doors, cherry blossoms and fruit hanging from the ceilings, makes this Bay Harbour Islands salon unlike anything you’ve experienced. And so does its extensive menu of services. Despite its name, 1160 Hair doesn’t specialize only on haircuts and color. Here you can enjoy a variety of treatments like Keratin anti-frizz treatments (great to keep your hair in check during the humid summer), hair extensions, organic facials, peels, waxing, Minx nails and a delicious chocolate pedicure that’s both relaxing and invigorating. No one said pampering had to be boring.
