QUICK COOL GIRL GUIDE TO NYC

Man Repeller recently wrote an article on being "cool". Leandra questions its very meaning and how she battled with achieving "cool" status in her early twenties. I think we can all agree this is something most of us have dealt with throughout our life. I am going to be honest here -- do we not all aspire to be "cool" in some way?  Living in New York there is plenty of cool to aspire to and find. Fashion, music, art, food -- all lend to the status of "cool". Let's be cool together! Here are some of my top picks for being cool in the city and will 100% up your coolness factor outside of the Big Apple.

Cool Girl Restaurant- Lalo

Chinatown used to be a section off Little Italy that was for dim-sum and late night drinks. Now, restaurateurs are opening a whole slew of hot-spots that are the farthest thing from Chinese food. Lalo, this Mexican jaunt by Chef Gerardo Gonzalez (El Rey) combines Cali influences with a focus on all the veggies your heart desires. Don't be fooled by its laid-back vibes, the scene is super sceney and attracts the crafty crowd of artists, editors and stylists. The food is on point too, because we know how much New Yorkers love a good meal AND a good crowd.

What To Wear:



Cool Girl Bar- Up & Up

Up & Up opened a little less than a year ago and has been a go-to for the cool crowd for a while now. Make your way past the stubborn, no-nonsense doorman to discover a bumpin' basement with tasty cocktails and cool vibes. Situated on Macdougal Street, this spot attracts the group aching for something beside the beer bar that makes up most of Greenwich Village. 

What To Wear:



Cool Girl Dance Party Club- Paul's Casablanca

Paul Sevigny, consummate club opener, party-goer and brother of Chloe, opened Paul's Casablanca late last year in what was once the renowned New York club Sway. Unlike other dance parties in NYC, this place is not somewhere to go and find KISS FM'S hot 100. Dance the night away to 90's classics and songs you forgot you loved from the aughts. Play it cool if you happen to bump into a celeb though, you are cool... remember :)
