The last time I went to Brooklyn Bridge park was for High School Prom photos in 2010- memories no adult wants to revisit. Needless to say the area has come a long way since those days. And thankfully so have I…. I can’t believe it took me so long to get back there. It’s amazing now. Full of public sports fields, luxury buildings, chic hotels, quaint coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Here are some of the spots we found and of course, some clothing details 😉
Coffee at Neighbors Cafe – 60 Furman St
I love the airy and minimilistic ambiance of this joint. Conveniently located right on the water, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Great pastries and cappuccinos.
1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge
After coffee, walk around the corner and check out this amazing hotel. The decor is on point, with an industrial foundation accented by warm organic furniture and embellished with greenery all along the walls. Saddle leather couches, layered fur rugs, wood furniture and woven poufs- it doesn’t get better.
Clothes: I’m wearing my comfy walking day staples-
Shoes: Nike Air Max
Jacket- Massimo Dutti
Bag and Hoops: H&M
Restaurants/Bars- The Binc at 60 Henry St.
This place is a hidden gem. Walk away from the water and leave the tourist crowds and overpriced restaurants with long lines behind. 7 minutes walking distance away from the center ferry area, you’ll find this intimate and romantic little bar. They serve outstanding cocktails and small plates. It’s dark and candle lit with 50’s music playing all night long and a bearded hipster mixologist to top it all off. $9 cocktails until 7:30, even on weekends. Get the parmesan fries! And I’ll leave you with this idgaf iPhone pic because by that point we were 4 drinks deep into heaven and forgot to take a decent picture for you. Just trust. Cheers 😘
