NEW YORK CITY IS KNOWN as The City That Never Sleeps, so it should come as no surprise after-hours fun — from bars and clubs to world-class art and entertainment — is easy to come by. In fact, the sheer variety and number of entertainment opportunities in New York City is astounding. From age-old pursuits like seeing a play on Broadway to experiencing some of the best cuisine in the world, here’s where to let your hair down in the Big Apple.
New York’s club scene splits its time between Manhattan and Brooklyn, though the two offer different experiences. Manhattan specializes in glitz and glamour, with velvet ropes and high-end bottle service, while Brooklyn knows how to throw a massive rave. You might spot a celebrity at Provocateur or Le Bain in Manhattan, while House of Yes specializes in offbeat, over-the-top ragers open to anyone with a driver’s license.
The LGBTQ scene in New York is one of the country’s most prominent, thanks to historic spots like The Stonewall Inn, a bar in Greenwich Village credited as the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement. The scene lives on there and at newer spots like Nowhere, Ginger’s Bar and Cubbyhole.
The city’s dining scene has never been more exciting, with dozens of new hot spots. No longer are New York’s top spots concentrated in Manhattan only; now travelers might find the best meals of their lives in Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx, and each borough brings a range of diverse options. Tap into the heartbeat of French elegance at Le Coucou in Manhattan, try a range of excellent Chinese dumplings at Dumpling Galaxy in Queens, or partake in adventurous riffs on new American cuisine at Prune in Manhattan.
Among the many things for which New York is famous, shopping certainly ranks high on the list. Whether you seek vintage treasures, rare art finds or high-end fashion, this city has you covered. Iconic shopping streets like Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue and Broadway are packed with retail, while the Chelsea neighborhood remains the go-to spot for art galleries. Seeking one-of-a-kind treasure? Try Brooklyn Flea, with its large market of vintage and handmade treasures.
It’s impossible to ignore New York’s world-class arts scene. From museums like The Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim that house classic works to Chelsea and Lower East Side galleries that might house the next famous work, it’s impossible for an art fanatic to get bored here. See a legendary Broadway play, catch the opera at Lincoln Center or seek out renowned comedic performances at spots like Caroline’s and Comedy Cellar. No matter your preferences, you’ll be endlessly entertained in New York.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
