Artists Space With their transcending artists and ideas, Artists Space challenges the New York City art scene. Their current exhibition, Union, is a video installation—a basement cinema. It pulls together various elements to communicate associations made by situations rather than structures in the Gaucho culture in Argentina, Uruguay, and South Brazil. artistsspace.org - 38 Greene St Team Gallery Residing on Grand Street is the bright and airy Team Gallery. Their most recent exhibition, Winter, by Ryan McGinley showcases his ethereal and alluring portraiture work of loved ones nude against a frozen environment. Each work depicts more of the invention aspect rather than documentation, allowing McGinley to be one of the most well-respected contemporary photographers out there. teamgal.com - 83 Grand St Swiss Institute Swiss Institute is the place where “artists with a thought-provoking thrust” display their work. And rightly so. Their current exhibition is Hans Schärer’s Madonnas, which pairs the artist’s most profound bodies of work to date. These 150 erotic watercolors are both transfixing and menacing with the subjects’ mouths either in grimaces or agape. Come here for an afternoon that is both provocative and scholastic. swissinstitute.net - 18 Wooster St Ronald Feldman Fine Arts Located on Mercer Street and Grand Street, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts unsuspectingly inhabits SoHo. But their humility does not stop them from being frontrunners in the art world. With over 2,000 national and international exhibitions under their belt, they have earned their envy-worthy reputation. Their current exhibition, To Whom it May Concern, is an archive from the Haaretz Newspaper. It has more than fifty digitalized color photographs up on display, and you’ll be mesmerized by the rich narratives the second you step inside. feldmangallery.com - 31 Mercer St Donald Judd Studio The restored Donald Judd Studio on Spring Street is a masterpiece of a building. All of the furniture and works of art inside were treated and cleaned with long-term preservation in mind. Whether you’re an architect, a designer, or just an appreciator of both, this space is worth exploring to better understand SoHo’s architectural history and where it is going, too. juddfoundation.org - 101 Spring St...

So we’ll help you. southsideofnewyork.com - 2 Cleveland Pl Pegu Club Historical and oaky feeling club is a fantastic place to grab drinks after a long day at the office or shopping throughout the city.

You can thank us later. felixnyc.com - 340 W Broadway The Handy Liquor Bar Step back in time at The Handy Liquor Bar. With features in magazines such as GQ and Vogue, you know it’s worth the visit.

We’re especially fans of their chairs, such as the Cap Chair (Natural Hide Seat/1113 White Stained Ash Legs and Black Hide Seat/1113 White Stained Ash Legs). It’s the perfect furniture piece to add flair to any New York apartment. cappellini.it - 152 Wooster St Kartell Tucked away on Greene Street is the color coordinated Kartell. Designers like Philippe Starck swear by their products. We love the wall clock Tic&Toc. Its transparent square box makes it both chic and innovative. And who can say no to that? kartell.com - 29 Greene St Ingo Maurer Otherworldly meets sleek at Ingo Maurer. Their lighting design will transcend any space into a scene from some voguish sci-fi film. For something simplistic yet alluring, we love the Eddie’s Son. It uses a halogen bulb that is covered by a transparent plastic drum lamp shade.

Little Prince The cozy French bistro is a staple in the neighborhood. With their vibrant floral arrangements and floor-to-ceiling windows, it’s understandable why so many people swear by this lunch spot. Known for their steak, we highly suggest ordering the Steak au Poivre. Or, for something a bit lighter, the Steak Tartare. littleprincesoho.com - 199 Prince St The Dutch Don’t let the name fool you; The Dutch is completely American cuisine and knows it, too. With a passion for creating food while building their community, everything here just tastes so good.

This quaint parlor takes freshly baked bread (and that’s not even the best part) and pairs it with items that miraculously take to you a whole new level of sandwiches and pasta. We suggest going for the simplistic and ordering the Homemade Linguine (Pesto, Pine Nuts, and Parmigiano). It’s a true Italian staple. bread-nolita.com - 20 Spring St Jack’s Wife Freda You haven’t been to SoHo yet if you haven’t dined at Jack’s Wife Freda. Seriously. The husband and wife owners know how to create photograph-worthy dishes with table setups that only add to the need for documentation. For something filling and savory, get the Avocado Salmon Toast. Or, go all out with the Madame Freda (Pressed sandwich with duck prosciutto, cheddar béchamel, gruyere & a sunny side up egg). jackswifefreda.com - 224 Lafayette St Cafe Gitane Founders of the ever so popular Smashed Avocado have the SoHo scene constantly buzzing about their Mott Street location. The Parisian styled Cafe Gitane is far more than simply avocados and toasted bread, though.

And if we must give you a suggestion, get the Hanger Steak (grilled, aged with roasted potatoes), or the Spaghetti (with fresh tomato and burrata). But, truly, everything is incredible. ilmulino.com - 331 W Broadway...

Eleven Madison With a focus on local ingredients, Eleven Madison Park serves 8-10 courses that can be tailored to your allergies or dietary preferences. And with a meal that is most likely going to last a couple of hours, a good cocktail is a necessary.

Rest easy knowing that they know what they’re doing and order a drink off their Tired and True section. We love the Gibson (gin, dry vermouth, pickled onion), and the Espresso Martini (vodka, cold-brew coffee, espresso & vanilla liqueurs). dearirving.com - 55 Irving Pl ABC Home With a manifesto that declares one’s living space sacred, ABC Home is a must.

That’s why we highly suggest spending a morning or afternoon simply strolling around Broadway and Flatiron. This neighborhood has history, so why not take it in? It’s so important to remember where a city has been to understand where it’s going. And be sure to appreciate that Gramercy is no longer the swamp that it once was in the 1800th’s.
