It is here!!! SPRING FINAL-Phucking-LY
Laissez les bons temps rouler.
I opened my summer Friday series at Negril Village. Located on West 3rd in the Village, between MacDougal and La Guardia Place. Negril Village has to be one of the chillest spot down there. For starters the food is good. I had the Curry Shrimp… Excellent. Make sure you get a side of plantains with whatever you order. It’s like the cherry on a sundae, so necessary. Your meal will run you around $30. Not bad at all. Secondly, the drinks are strong and delicious. I recommend a Mojito from the bar upstairs. Last, the DJ in the lounge and dining area gives you some great hip-hop and dance hall tunes that we can all get down too.
More notable thing about Negril Village… You WILL know someone else there. If not in the lounge, at the bar, or in the dinning area. I ran into more friends there, than at some planned parties. But seriously, great for a date, guys or girls night, bar hopping, watching the game. you name it.
Negril Village fed the stomach but, after that we needed to fill the night. So around 2 am a few friends, my brother and I roll over to one of my favorite bars in the city. Gaslight (located on the Southwest corner of 14th and 9th). It’s like the cheers opener. Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name. Well, at Gaslight they look out for you. Arrive and the bouncers hold you down. “How have you been?”, “New Hair?” Yeah, they remember you at a bar in the Meat packing… I Know, I know, Crazy right? But, at the end of the day Gaslight and G2 is real chill. Yes it’s a 2 sided bar with a pass through. The original gaslight is more loungy (I should submit that word to Webster’s) with big old couches and chairs to sit and watch a game. G2 is more modern with big booths for large parties. 2 different DJ’s to huge bars. Nice seating to lounge out but plenty room to dance, stand and talk whatever. Drinks are nice a strong. Average price for the area. $10- $15 (hey it is the Meat packing district) *Shrug*
Gaslight/G2 is one happy family. People will get you drinks, male and female, whether you’re alone or with a group it’s easy to meet people there and just chill.
Definitely got the 1st Summer Friday series off right!
