When you have a business meeting in Manhattan it means two things. First of all, you will be mingling with some of the world’s biggest power players. Secondly there’s a lot more to do in Manhattan than just work, work, work. Here’s a few suggestions on how to do both, work and play, while in Manhattan.
Where to Stay
Position yourself in a prime place in terms of accommodations. In addition to setting you up for success each day, the following hotels are quintessential for the popular peeps staying in Manhattan. As an added bonus, these are the places to go for business events and power lunches:
- Four Seasons Hotel New York, pricey but perfection has its costs
- Library Hotel where the smartest mix and mingle among the stacks
- Trump SoHo New York symbolizes all things business, along with an air of sophistication and luxury
- DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Times Square sits in the middle of the most desirable district, the Theater District, in NYC
Where to Eat
From business brunches to after hour cocktails, Manhattan rounds the table with top of the line restaurants. If you are looking for the best place for a business lunch, make reservations at Vitae, which is also highly recommended for nightly cocktails. Other top options for business meetings include Quality Meats, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, and The Modern.
Once the work is done it is time to take Manhattan in another direction. It helps if you’ve found a great place to party and unwind, of which Manhattan has plenty to offer. Start your night at Pouring Ribbons in Alphabet City and East Village. While still in East Village check out Angel’s Share, a Japanese take on a speakeasy. Over in SoHo the Pegu Club makes phenomenal cocktails without being overly pretentious, perfect for when you just want to let loose in class. For those who want to keep with the business theme check out Raines Law Room or Employees Only. Both of these lounges serve out of this world cuisine along with top shelve cocktails.
Shopping to Drop
No one comes to NYC without shopping. It just doesn’t happen. While in the borough of Manhattan Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York are the classic stops for any luxury shopper. If you have a special something in mind, Tiffany and Co and Henri Bendel are the go-to place for gems and jewels, while Kiki de Montparnasse brings lingerie to the first class lifestyle.
