Stonehenge 57 has it all! Not only does the pre-war architecture maintain the character and nuance of the time period, but its newly renovated lobby also has all the perks of a modern building: a spacious resident lounge, children’s playroom, and a high-end fitness facility complete with a peloton bike and yoga room. While we understand why you’d never want to leave your new home, Midtown East is just fun to explore.
Need a bit of help on where to begin? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Read on for a few must-try spots in your new neighborhood.
The Best Spot For…
A Cold Pint -- Draught 55
Whether you’re a beer snob or need to unwind at the end of a long workday, Draught 55 is the place for you. With over 100 local and international brews, you can mix-and-match to your heart’s content. But it doesn’t end with the beer list! Draught 55 also hosts an impeccable food menu -- Make sure to give the Meatballs or Heirloom Carrot Salad a try!
Your Kid’s Birthday Party -- A La Mode Shoppe
This family-run shop is the perfect place for your kiddo’s next birthday party. Not only is the ice cream superb, but it’s also made in a socially conscious factory that is 100% nut-, egg-, and sesame-free -- so you don’t have to worry about allergic reactions. A La Mode Shoppe’s bright design creates a wonderfully welcoming environment for children of all ages. Pop into one of their weekly events, or contact the store to rent the space for your next celebration.
Your Morning Bagel -- Tal’s Bagels
Locating your neighborhood’s best bagel is nearly as important as finding your go-to corner store. Tal’s Bagels covers all your basics -- including original and vegan blends of your favorite schmears. Only a couple blocks south of Stonehenge 57, it’ll become a regular part of your breakfast routine. However, this is a pretty popular spot! If you want to skip the morning rush, consider ordering online.
To Break A Sweat -- Equinox 54
You’d be hard-pressed to find a better gym in Manhattan, and luckily there’s an Equinox right in the Stonehenge 57 neighborhood. Their East 54th St location is home to a premium spa, top-notch personal trainers, and over 100 group classes a week. Finish your workout with a protein shake at their onsite Juice Press counter.
Girls’ Night Out -- Rosa Mexicano
If your idea of a perfect Friday night includes a salt-lined margarita on the rocks, then look no further than Rosa Mexicano. Right up first avenue from your new apartment, Rosa is the place for Mezcal tastings, bottomless brunch, or a low-key happy hour. Plus, they have the best guacamole on the east side of Manhattan. Cheers!
