On the evening of December 10, New York's elite real estate and art crowd visited the penthouse at 7 Wooster Street for the real estate and art collectors night hosted by Jared Seligman, Arielle Patrick, Kipton Cronkite, and Diana Burroughs. Guests including Nicky Hilton and Zac Posen mixed and mingled at the stunning location, which is one of Douglas Elliman's most coveted listings. Delicious drinks were provided by Drizly (the app that delivers alcohol to your door!) and were the perfect accompaniment for viewing pieces by artists Alexandra Posen and Zac Buehner.
Last night, footwear designer Paul Andrew celebrated his CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund win with a cocktail party at the newly opened Gordon Bar at Sixty Soho. The annual award grants talented, emerging US designers $300k to support their lines, which in this case is Paul Andrew's namesake line following designing stints at revered brands like Alexander McQueen and Calvin Klein. The magnitude of such a prestigious award wasn't lost on the guests; dozens of Paul's close friends, fellow designers, and industry leaders were visibly excited for the British-born designer. Even during our interview with Paul, we were briefly cutoff for an immediate shoe request for a celebrity, something that's becoming increasingly ordinary for the brand. Nonetheless, the designer was totally humble, and more keen on enjoying the chic space and tasty cocktails with friends.

We are huge fans of trendy night spots with a low, subdued ambiance. We also love old school decor and staff that dresses black tie, specialty cocktails that take us back to prohibition, and the feeling that we're doing something wrong (even though it's right). We've compiled a list of our favorite trendy speakeasies, ones you have to go through a back door or know a friend of a friend to get into. Whether you're a tourist or a long time resident of NYC, you should get to know these hard to find places, as they'll serve you right after a long day of work.
Last night, Matt Levine brought back his LES Beat party in a major way. Partygoers walked down an unassuming Wall Street, showing little indication of what was to come in the underground space across from the New York Stock Exchange. It was clear that despite the neighborhood, the event vibe was far more Bushwick-warehouse than a Gilded-Age FiDi event space. Black-lit painting, a bouncy castle, an all-night open bar, and performances by throwback hip-hop stars Mystikal, Petey Pablo, as well as underground regular Scrap, made for one of the most unique parties of the year. Click through to take a look at the wildness that ensued throughout the LES Beat!
Last night two New York icons came together to celebrate their shared history in the city they love. Stetson and the New York hat shop, JJ Hat Center, held a 20’s-themed party at the Fifth Avenue store. Special guest hosts included bloggers Lisa Dengler (Just Another), Marcel Floruss (One Dapper Street) and Moti Ankari (The Metro Man). Guests sipped cocktails created by Raines Law Room, including a seasonal apple cider punch and a build-your-own Old Fashioned bar, using Stetson’s own Kentucky Bourbon. Dengler, Floruss, and Ankari were sporting their Stetson hats as they greeted friends and snapped pictures.
Last night, Women's Wear Daily and the Howard Hughes Corporation hosted a special event downtown at South Street Seaport's Seaport District, announcing the annual Ten ofTomorrowparty. The event, held in a pop-up tent that resembled a luxurious igloo, honored a select group of designers and retailers innovating the fashion industry while also celebrating the rise of the evolving Seaport District. Honorees included Simone Rocha, Marco de Vincenzo, Scott Studenberg, Paola Russo, and more. Guests were treated to cocktails and a variety of hors d'oeuvres. For an inside look at the event, be sure to check out our slideshow!
Last night Tommy Hilfiger and GQ hosted the GQ Men of New York party, celebrating some of the most talented and stylish men in the city. Held at the enormous and elegant Tommy Hilfiger 5th Avenue flagship, the event followed the annual GQ Men of the Year party held in L.A. This party was just as enticing, with models, actors, and other cultural influencers showing up to celebrate and help raise awareness for the non-profit organization Save The Children.
