Want an evening on the town, but you don’t want to stray too far from home? There’s no such thing as “no plans” when you live in one of the luxe East Village apartments at EVGB.
Situated at the epicenter of Manhattan nightlife, these East Village luxury rentals not only give you a ton of options to party the night away but the convenience of not having to get a cab at 4 am. Everything you need, from old-school eats to modern cocktails, is within a 10-minute walk. Here’s our guide to finding the ultimate way to have a night out without going out of your way.
First, invite your friends to EVGB to experience the exceptional amenities these luxury apartments offer. May we recommend an early evening cocktail with friends on the spacious rooftop? Or you could pre-game with a work-out in the state-of-the-art two-floor on-site gym.
Next, explore these excellent ways to spend the rest of your evening:
Westville East | 173 Avenue A
The East Village outpost of this West Village darling has an upscale but relaxed vibe that will set the right tone. And the farm-to-table fare is the perfect base for your evening ahead … no matter what you choose to indulge in. But first, revel in a crispy chicken sandwich dripping with tangy chipotle mayo or a juicy burger expertly assembled on a Portuguese bun (which is kind of like an English muffin but from Portugal). The casual ambiance will have you wanting to linger for a while, but there’s so much more to do.
Mother of Pearl | 95 Avenue A
Head to the South Pacific with a seven-block walk south of your home at EVGB. At night, this “post-modern” tiki bar glows with a white-hot brightness that not only draws you into a place of Polynesian-style pleasure but makes the locale instantly Instagramable. While the elegant decor is far from kitschy, the throwback midcentury cocktails are a mainstay. The Shark Eye is a passion fruit drink served in a shark glass that looks like “Jaws” just took a bite. The New York Post called this one of Manhattan’s showiest cocktails, but it’s not just the way it looks; it’s the way it tastes. And trust us—you will definitely be going back into the water.
Goodnight Sonny | 134 First Avenue
Take a trip back to Prohibition-era NYC at Goodnight Sonny. New York Magazine says that the bar “mixes a casual, grunge-esque East Village vibe with that of a cozy, rustic speakeasy.” We agree and can say that the handcrafted cocktails are bar-none. Try the Sonny’s Cup, which manages to make a Pimm’s cup more refreshing, thanks to the addition of hibiscus.
Crif Dogs | 113 Saint Marks Place
After copious amounts of drinking and dancing, the weary East Village resident takes refuge amid the creative hot dogs served up in this restaurant. If you’re thinking of a typical dog with a little mustard, think again! Crif has a wide-ranging menu that is an almost-guaranteed hangover preventive, like the Garden State, which is wrapped in Taylor Ham, or the BTL, which, yes, has bacon, lettuce, and tomato.
