The end of the workday is a time for celebration. Before heading home, it's always a good idea to meet up with your significant other or catch up with friends and enjoy a cocktail, glass of wine and some light bites. It's the perfect way to unwind and put the cares of the day in the rearview mirror. And, oh, by the way, Midtown Manhattan's nightlife options are NOT just limited to the work week. You can party on the weekends, too. Here are a few intriguing bar and cocktail lounge options. Gather up those who you care about the most and get ready for some great times together.
A classic cocktail hits the spot just about any time of the day, night, or year, for that matter. Most mixologists even change up their cocktail menu to suit the seasons. But these cool, refreshing elixirs are particularly welcome when the high temps of Summer hit. What could be better than a nice, creative, fruit and herb-forward cocktail as you toast your friends or the love of your life?
Fun places to explore after work and on the weekend.
Midtown Manhattan may not have the sexy foodie vibe of neighborhoods such as Astoria, Prospect Park, Williamsburg, Chelsea, and Soho; but it doesn't need to make any apologies on that front, either. When you're hungry or thirsty and searching for something other than a chain restaurant or tourist trap, you will definitely find all kinds of diverse and elevated cuisines in Midtown. You just have to know where to look. And, that's where Aplez.com comes in. So, let's take a look at some of the delicious options that are available for date night, brunch, or an evening out with friends.
ARTIST IN THE SPOTLIGHT: The New York City art scene is more vibrant than ever before. Galleries in Bushwick and Williamsburg, Brooklyn as well as edifices of art in Soho, Chelsea, and Long Island City are showcasing the work of new and exciting artists. You can also discover up-and-coming and established artists at local neighborhood pop-up events and street fairs. Not to mention the colorful graffiti that adorns previously empty building walls all over the city. Art is just about everywhere you look in the Big Apple.
The vibrant art of Sandra Jockus!
Artist Sandra Jockus' intriguing journey in life has literally taken this talented innovator around the world. And that has influenced her art and outlook big time. Sandra spent her early childhood years in her native Lithuania before moving to Berlin where she grew up and attended high school. More than a little adventurous, Sandra decided, upon graduation, to spend one year in Tokyo as a student, as part of a special program. As things turned out, though, Sandra ended up living there for nine years. During Sandra's Japanese sojourn, she attended the Bunka College of Fashion and then worked in Tokyo's fashion industry for several years.
