I promised you guys a fun guest post would be coming this week! While Nick and I are currently eating our way through Rome, I’m letting my dear friend Carly take over and share her ideas for where to head with your girlfriends in New York City. Whenever I can’t decide on a restaurant or bar, I shamelessly head over to Carly’s blog and Instagram to see where she’s been because gurl alwayssss finds the best spots that are equally as tasty as they are Instagram-worthy.
Hi everyone! My name is Carly Hill and I have the blog Carly A. Hill, where I love to share my travel guides, but especially for right here in NYC! I’m so excited Katie asked me to share a guide over here today and I hope it helps with finding your next spot too! One of the best things about NYC is all the fun spots to try with my girlfriends! Whether you live locally or are visiting for the weekend, this guide is packed with all things perfect to visit with your girls!
Where To Head With Your Girlfriends in New York City
While We Were Young: This tiny West Village spot is usually super busy but the wait is worth it for the Instagram shot!
Sel Rrose: Stop in for oysters, fries and cocktails, they have a great happy hour till 7 pm everyday!
Dear Irving: Glamorous décor, fun music and well crafted cocktails
Tom & Jerry’s: This elevated dive bar is known for their long list of delicious (and strong!) cocktails making it the ideal spot to kick off your night with.
Egg Shop: If you’re an early riser, head here to beat the brunch rush and try one of their incredible egg dishes.
Pietro Nolita: This all pink spot (my whole pink restaurant guide can be found here!) is the perfect spot for a great breakfast and capturing your last few vacation shots.
Lafayette: This huge space is decorated beautifully, and also has some of the best pancakes in NYC. Grab some macarons or croissants from their bakery to bring back home with you too!
Baz Bagel: Along with its adorable décor and 80s tunes, this has the best bagels and diner favorites like BLTs, matzo ball soup and egg sandwiches.
Lil Frankies: My favorite pizza and pasta in the city! A must is the lemon pasta, nothing better!
Thursday Kitchen: Fun adult Capri Sun drinks and a mix of Asian inspired tapas plates to share (make sure to order the truffle mac and cheese!)
Old Rose: Another new pizza and pasta place that’s inside The Jane Hotel and gorgeous and delicious! After dinner, head over to the hotel bar for a nightcap.
Tacombi: A fun Mexican restaurant with a few locations around the city, you can never go wrong with margaritas and tacos.
DESSERT AND COFFEE
City Bakery: A must for hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies
Toby’s Estate: Inside Club Monaco, this spot also has a gorgeous flower shop and Strand Bookstore to look around.
Union Fare: With indulgent croissants like birthday cake, fruity pebble and crème brulee.
Flour Shop: This Soho spot has become the must have treat of the year thanks to their sprinkle filled cakes. (See how I attempted my own here!)
