Discover the Hidden Gems of the LES

November brings with it sweater weather, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, majestic autumn leaves, and crisp breezes to a city packed to the brim with one-of-a-kind experiences. All the best things to write home about are located only a short walk from our hotel. Here are some of our favorites.

Spirit Bazaar

Take a walk down to the Bowery and get your fill of seasonal cheer at the 9th Annual Holiday Spirit Bazaar. This is your chance to sample cocktails and spirits from the finest bars and mixologists in the city, all under one roof, and choose the winner yourself via text-to-vote. Using only top-shelf products, the city’s drink experts will craft you wintry punches, holiday cocktails, and tasty treats.

Poetry Slam at the Nuyorican

Engage with a little modern culture at the site of the first ever poetry slam in 1989. Still offering bleeding-edge performance arts from tomorrow’s up-and-comers, you’ll see a mash-up of poets straddling genres, setting trends, and showcasing the barest, rawest moments of the human condition. You pick the winner and decide who will be coming back to perform next time.
