In the Neighborhood
Arts & Culture
This downtown dance studio means business—dozens of group classes are offered daily, teaching would-be dancers of all levels the intricacies of tango, ballroom, swing, salsa, meringue, cha-cha, the hustle (yes, that hustle) and less well-known dance styles like the Carolina Shag.
Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC
From the folks who brought you the neighborhood-defining Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District comes this 20-story "luxury urban resort," which contains a three-story atrium lobby, 249 rooms and suites, an ultra-modern gym, an onsite Exhale spa, Cutler Salon and a rooftop pool, available to guests all day.
The Peoples Improv Theater
This comedy haven (an acronym for "Peoples Improv Theater") is a great place for people with stage fright to take improvisation classes and also for revelers to watch live acts by some of the City's finest comedians-in-training.
The Flatiron Room
Private-stock scotch and nightly jazz performances take center stage at this new Flatiron-area lounge, which offers thirsty patrons more than 400 varieties of whiskey—ranging from your standard Macallen 10 to Ardbeg Galileo, which has been aged in space.
