With the temperatures in New York continuing to hit sub zero it’s time to put on a warm coat and forget all about it, as instead we take a look at 5 things that every gentleman in New York should be doing right now…
1. HAVE A TRADITIONAL SHAVE AT: THE ART OF SHAVING
From a ‘traditional shave’ to a ‘haircut and royal shave’, every true gentleman knows that this is the place to be groomed to perfection this month. With 7 destinations to choose from across the city, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is just which service you’re going to go for.
2. DRINK (AND PLAY) AT: THE NEW PING PONG BAR – SPIN
Ping-pong and drinking? What could be more fun! This new wave of bar experience has been popping up all over the world and the latest one to hit New York is set to be one of the best yet. Open all day and until the early hours of the morning, they are fusing 17 ping-pong courts, a full bar, restaurant, pro-shop and private VIP room to bring you one hell of a party.
3. GO AND SEE: CAPTAIN LINNAEUS TRIPE AT THE MET
This stunning and highly anticipated exhibition of around sixty photographs traces Tripe’s work from his earliest images made in England (1852–1854), to those created on expeditions to the south Indian kingdom of Mysore (1854), to Burma (1855), and again to south India (1857–1858). The comprehensive scope of his work offers the audience a virtual tour through a foreign landscape, rendering it knowable and preserving sites already bearing traces of colonial rule.
