Off the Beaten Path: Holiday Parties Outside of The Box in New York City

With so many interesting and delicious options off the beaten path, a holiday party in an unexplored area is the recipe for a memorable time that stands out against the sometimes blasé holiday soiree. Whether up north or down south, we’re here to give you the inspiration to navigate outside the city limits and embrace the unknown!


Kings County Distillery:

A trip to this Brooklyn whiskey distillery will leave guests feeling like they took a mini-trip to the rolling hills of Kentucky to sip on perfectly prepared moonshines and bourbons. The pairing of the venue tour and whiskey tasting creates an ambiance that is comfortable, creative and perfect for mixing it up this holiday season.


Tequila! At this East Village treasure tequila is the name of the game. Boasting extremely rare mezcals and agaves, an evening inside this subdued cellar is an exciting journey through 14th century Mexico. A change of pace from the traditional holiday party, Mayahuel is both memorable and cozy.


Brooklyn Nets:

A VIP sporting event with a private tour is the perfect way to break out of the downtown shell and show guests an exciting evening. The ideal time of year for a basketball game, the Brooklyn Nets never cease to impress when they are tearing up the court at the Barclays Center. After guests experience a game from the luxury loft suites it’ll be hard to go back to general admission.

Hopefully we’ve inspired you to break away from the expected and try something new! This holiday season is the perfect time to vary the standard Manhattan tradition.
