As the city recovers, we’re backing the independent businesses that represent the soul of the city from unique shops to restaurants and bars.
Hello, New York!
Time Out editors have been seeking out the best of the city since 1968. We know that New York is nothing without its restaurants, bars, theaters, music venues, nightclubs, cinemas, art galleries—and all the other local, independently run places where people come together to eat, drink, laugh and think.
We’re determined to help. That's why we launched our Love Local Awards to support local food, drink, culture and entertainment in New York. The awards let New Yorkers decide the city's favorite restaurant, bar, club, theater, gallery, coffee shop, bakery and independent store. (We had over 60,000 votes!) You can see the winners here.
You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram to hear more about our ongoing campaign. As New York adjusts to its new reality, we’ll continue to support local independent venues, and the people that bring them to life. Keep scrolling to see Time Out's Love Local campaign in action and consider supporting a New York business today.

If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to stand inside a kaleidoscope, this immersive new public art installation in Manhattan West offers some clues. Evoking an amusement park Tilt-A-Whirl with its shape and colors like a pack of Crayola crayons, the piece dazzles among the neighborhood’s glass skyscrapers. It beckons visitors to walk through the installation and think about the illusion and physicality of color and natural light in space. Called “Hymn to the Big Wheel,” it’s the first time this work by British artist Liz West has been shown in the United States. See it at Manhattan West (385 Ninth Avenue in Chelsea) until September 5 and then at Brookfield Place (230 Vesey Street, Battery Park City) from September 9-25. The work is presented by Arts Brookfield and curated by MASSIVart. Photograph: Courtesy of Arts Brookfield | The effect is kaleidoscopic. In Manhattan West this week, people snapped selfies inside the sculpture, kids ran (or scootered) through it, and others admired the work from afar while eating dinner in the plaza. Inside the octagonal structure, the effect is both disorienting and serene, especially where the jewel-tone transparent colored sheets overlap with one another. That’s likely exactly what West intended as she’s known for blurring the boundaries between sculpture, architecture, design, and painting to create playful, immersive works. If the sun is just right, you’ll also see a prism-like sundial effect on the pavement. The best time to vi
The only thing we love more than a bookstore is one that's hidden behind a very New York-like facade, making the space that much more magical. A new such destination has just opened in Greenpoint: Burnt Books is a vintage bookstore set up inside a bodega called Green Discount Corp at 1014 Manhattan Avenue by Green Street. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Burnt Books (@burnt_books_) To find it, head to the address, look for the graffiti-like sign that reads "BURNT BOOKS" on the sidewalk by the bodega's entrance, walk to the back and get ready to purchase some vintage paperbacks. Although finding Burnt Books on Google is nearly impossible (hence us giving you the exact address and directions!), the store's Instagram account makes the endeavor that much more accessible. The account is filled with pictures of the sorts of titles you'll find on premise, including Ed Noon's The Living Bomb, Frank Kane's Due or Die, Kate Wilhelm's Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang and Norbert Wiener's Cybernetics. Coffee table books, works of nonfiction and travel guides make appearances as well. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Burnt Books (@burnt_books_) As reported by Eater, the shop was set up by one Jason Mojica, the owner of nearby comic book destination Hey Kids! Comics. According to the outlet, Mojica initially sought to open a standalone used book shop but "couldn't afford two rents" so he instead partnered with the bodega's ow
Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to expand book access and build community by installing actual library boxes across the world, where people can take a title and leave one for others to take. This summer, the nonprofit The New York Restoration Project (NYRP), which seeks to improve the quality of our public spaces, installed 28 of these book-sharing destinations within New York’s community gardens. Each box contains at least 10 books donated by the New York Public Library's Tompkins Square branch and others that are part of Scholastic's Read in Color Book Bundle. The latter collection includes works about marginalized communities, touching upon themes like social justice and racism. "We are so pleased to now have Little Free Libraries in half our gardens throughout New York City. NYRP's mission is to create equitable access to quality green spaces, and we are excited to now incorporate these book-sharing boxes to serve this mission," Lynn B. Kelly, executive director of NYRP, said. "Knowledge is power, and Little Free Libraries will allow New Yorkers from all walks of life to share resources and stories. We are constantly reimagining the potential uses of our NYRP parks and gardens and are now proud to not only provide a place to enjoy a book, but to get one, too!" Find the newly installed Little Free Libraries across these 28 locations: Manhattan: Union Settlement Maggie's Garden – 564 West 149th Street El Barrio Community Garden – 415 East
Imagine your favorite dive bar with its smoky air, dim lighting and cold beer on tap. Now think of your favorite ice cream with its creamy, cold, refreshing taste. And now imagine if they combined…yes, seriously. New York City’s Tipsy Scoop and Miller High Life teamed up to create this boozy ice cream concoction in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the ice cream bar. The tasting notes are like the aftertaste of a long night out—but in a good way. Here’s what the collaborators say to expect: Premium ice cream infused with High Life (that packs a 5% ABV) Delicious peanut swirl bringing the saltiness of the quintessential dive bar snack A hint of tobacco smoke flavor reminiscent of that unforgettable dive bar scent Gooey caramel swirl to incorporate the distinct sticky dive bar floor feeling only the real ones know A fun sprinkle of carbonated candy to provide the iconic Champagne of Beers effervescence in every bite All dipped in dark chocolate to evoke the dark wood and dim lighting ambiance that all good dives share Naturally, the Ice Cream Dive Bars are sold in a six-pack. Each pack contains six individually wrapped bars in themed limited-edition packaging. Photograph: Courtesy of Tipsy Scoop and Miller High Life. | Cheers to this Miller High Life and Tipsy Scoop collaboration.

New York City Restaurant Week comes but twice a year, and reservations for the summer, 2022 edition are open now. Tables are available for brunch, lunch and dinner at more than 600 restaurants citywide from July 18-August 21. This year’s price points are $30, $45 and $60 for two and three-course lunch and dinner menus on the days of each venue’s choosing. With so many sensational new restaurants, romantic spots and NYC classics, and so little time to taste them all, it can be hard to narrow the field. We’ve taken a loupe to the lot to spotlight the top options. These are the best things to order at the best places to visit during NYC Restaurant Week this summer. See here for a full list of what restaurants are participating in NYC Restaurant Week!
New York has no shortage of incredible food events, but one food festival is about to make waves. Queer Cafeteria, billed as NYC’s First LGBTQ+ Food Festival, will take place in Queens on Saturday, August 13. Led by Dave’s Lesbian Bar, the monthly Astoria pop-up queer bar, in partnership with Socrates Sculpture Park and Queer Food Foundation (QFF), Queer Cafeteria will gather dozens of LGBTQ+ makers, vendors, artists, cooks and more to feed, entertain and sustain the local queer community. Running from brunch time through dinner, 11am-8pm, the event is organized like an all-day cookout: Bring a blanket, buds (friends, but, well, you know) and sunblock to spend the day entertained by live musicians and dancers, participate in a yoga class and work up an appetite to taste your way through all the dishes. So what will there be to feast on? A lot.Fresco’s Cantina, a gay-owned and operated Astoria restaurant, will be doling out Mexican fare, with more vendors including Coleslaw Vegan, Tif’s Cakes, Bad Girl Hot Sauce, Kinky Taco, Nightcore Kitchen, Wilde Herbs, Slutty Sammys, Kau Kau and many more throughout the day. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Socrates Sculpture Park (@socratespark) “As a black-owned food truck we pride ourselves in diversity and inclusion and love of self,” said Akeelah, Kinky Taco’s owner. “We will use whatever platform we have to promote and support marginalized groups.” To drink, Boyfriend Coop will be raising funds for thei
Imagine watching the sun dip behind the Manhattan skyline, its golden light reflecting off the placid East River and the sound of water gently lapping against the rocky shore—it’s your front yard at the new NYC Glamping grounds. NYC Glamping is offering stays in converted shipping containers that have been placed at 1 Oak Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, otherwise known as Skyline Drive-In. The drive-in is known for its incredible views of the skyline and now it’s open to guests who book a stay. RECOMMENDED: The best places to go glamping near NYC Each container is comprised of a comfortable, cozy room with air conditioning, Wi-Fi and a bathroom with a shower, and has sweeping, unobstructed views of the city and the river. Each stay comes with free admission to the Skyline Drive-In movies and is within walking distance to Transmitter Park and several local restaurants and Greenpoint attractions. Photograph: courtesy of NYC Glamping Photograph: courtesy of NYC Glamping Photograph: courtesy of NYC Glamping Normally this kind of waterfront access and prime location comes at a hefty price. While it’s still no small fee, a night of glamping on the water is accessible for the price of a hotel stay. NYC Glamping’s standard queen unit is $280/night on a weekday and $300/night during the weekend. Its Suite (which is a double—two containers connected) is $380 for a weekday and $420 for a night during the weekend. Stays can be booked online or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org wit
Many of the best views in NYC are free. The best Statue of Liberty lookout is from a grocery store parking lot in Red Hook, the vantage point from the Staten Island Ferry is breathtaking and Astoria Park’s outlooks are unprecedented. But looking at stuff can also work up an appetite, so having some food and drinks to accompany the landscape is a must. Luckily, NYC’s best viewstaurants don’t just dine out on their looks. They also carefully consider their cocktails, curate their wine lists and create plates to rival their spectacular backdrops. Whether they're sky-high, on the water or beachside, these excellent restaurants and bars give you plenty to peep besides your phone–but don't forget to snap a pic, too!
If we were attractive, successful but sexily unsatisfied near-youths in a film, dinner would be set at Nudibranch. The new restaurant, which operated as a pop-up for six months prior to opening its 34-seat space in March, is both physically and fantastically in the East Village, the latter in the sense of seeming to have sprung from a sort of idealized notion of downtown cool. The vibes are on. It looks a little like a chic, farmhouse library, with a long high-top parallel with the bar near the entrance, a banquette along the far right wall and a row of wood grain-patterned tables in-between. It’s almost equally white and oak-hued across surfaces of exposed brick and shining tiles. Potted plants and a few populated book shelves are poised throughout. It’s electric, but humming, not blaring, surprisingly roomy considering the small space, and, in an infrequent acoustic feat, more or less fine for a low-stakes private conversations. Owners Jeff Kim (Atoboy, Eleven Madison Park, Momofuku Ssäm Bar) and Matthew Lee’s (Jua, Jungsik, Momofuku Ko) $75 tasting offers several options across three courses, plus occasional specials and planned seasonal tweaks. A duo of pear wedges from the Union Square Greenmarket is an amuse bouche for the stone fruit’s season, sprinkled with a bit of not particularly additive granola that blasts the bite back to breakfast. The first official round’s frog legs are a runaway hit, four juicy handhelds fried to pale golden perfection and topped with bea
A major Manhattan landmark has closed up shop. Trader Joe’s Wine Shop, located at 138 E 14th St. just below Union Square, permanently shut its doors on Thursday, August 11, marking the end of an era for budget booze shoppers. The next door Trader Joe’s grocery store is still very much open for business, with the typical store-long line of NYU students, summer interns and commuters grabbing dark chocolate peanut butter cups and bags of frozen cauliflower gnocchi while they multitask crossing off their shopping lists while inching closer to the very distant registers. It's true — the Trader Joe's Wine Shop — the only one in NYC — shut down today on 14th Street in Union Square. pic.twitter.com/Y2yw5LY52M — evgrieve (@evgrieve) August 11, 2022 “We have been operating our small Wine Shop in the Union Square neighborhood for over 15 years, and we thank you for all the business and support throughout the years,” reads a printed sign in the window of the now-shuttered shop. Trader Joe’s website confirms that this location is indeed permanently closed leaving yet another vacant storefront in Manhattan. Naturally, New Yorkers are devastated at the unpredictable loss—and right before the weekend! “Falling to my knees at the now out of business 14th st trader joe’s wine store,” someone tweeted. Many more shared their heartbreak on social media, with a devastating memorial thread currently being updated on Reddit. But not all is lost: the message also states that the shop is exploring n
Brownstone Brooklyn's newest attraction is a win-win for kids and parents. While you're sipping a hot chocolate (perhaps with a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream), your kiddos can whip around Court Street Tavern's debut ice skating rink. The newly opened Carroll Gardens restaurant has taken outdoor accommodations and upped the ante; while most eateries have opted for heated tents, this South Brooklyn spot has created its own destination for winter fun. Meet the Court Street Ice Rink. Photograph: Time Out / Danielle Valente Photograph: Time Out / Danielle Valente Photograph: Courtesy Emily Bartlett Perfect for ages 13 and under, the super-cute "glice" rink from Matt Shendell of Paige Concepts is open daily from 12:15–7:15pm for $25 per child (including skate rentals). Parents can make reservations on Resy for 45-minute sessions and walk-ins are welcome. For an additional $10, moms and dads can rent a skate aid seal—an adorable buddy looking to help your little skaters keep their balance. Note that lockers are not available, so be prepared to hang onto those winter boots. Plus, there's more good news. TVs are stationed right above the rink, so you can have your eyes on the game, your lil' winter Olympian and that tasty Hot Toddy. We told you this would be a win-win for everyone! Court Street Tavern is located at 449 Court St in Carroll Gardens. Most popular on Time Out - Awesome things NYC families can’t miss in 2021- New kids’ movies coming out in 2021 that you can’t miss

Update: The completely redesigned Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will now open in spring 2021 as opposed to February 2021. An exact date has not been revealed. We'll be sure to update you as soon as we know more. Looks like we're going to have to be patient. The Museum of Natural History's completely redesigned Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will now open in 2021 as opposed to this fall. But judging from the details, we have a feeling it'll be well worth the wait. On Feb 17, 2021, the family attraction will welcome visitors to the 11,000 square-foot space that house roughly 5,000 pieces from 95 countries. Guests can catch a glimpse of a 3,000-pound block of iridescent green and blue labradorite, the Singing Stone from the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago and the new "Beautiful Creatures" exhibit, which will celebrate historic and contemporary jewelry inspired by animals. Patrons will be able to find it in halls’ first temporary exhibition space. Plus, as an added bonus for the little learners in your crew, the Allison and Roberto Mignone Halls of Gems and Minerals will be the perfect spot for children with an interest in earth science, as it promises to be an invaluable resource for schools and camps.

Museums in New York City were given the green light to reopen at limited capacity on Aug 23. Although family attractions such as The Museum of Natural History and The Met started welcoming back visitors, most of our favorite children's museums only remain active online. However, the Children's Museum of the Arts just announced its plans in a Sept 18 newsletter. "After evaluating options to reopen safely, we have made the difficult decision to stay closed for the remainder of the year," the note read. "Though our doors remain shut, we are more dedicated than ever to pursuing our mission of providing transformational and accessible arts opportunities through online content and programs." There are still plenty of ways to enjoy the best of the attraction: Art pods, parent workshops and virtual kids' classes are some of the offerings that'll keep the creative juices flowing this fall. No matter your little artist's interest, CMANY has the perfect fit, from its graphic novel club to animation and character design, among other cool after-school programs. Check them out!
