Magic At The McKittrick And Southern Drinks At Porchlight Will Ease The Sunday Scaries
You know the McKittrick for Sleep No More, the immersive, Shakespearean theatre experience told through film noire. Head upstairs to The Lodge for Speakeasy Magic a work of mystical arts and deception that invites the audience to participate with purveyor of amazement Todd Robbins. Enjoy this night of whimsy like you've never experienced with New York City's best magicians. Explore the Lodge while you're here too. A garden hideaway with cabins, fireplaces, and even bunk beds, you’ll feel instantly transported to a mountainside ski lodge. Sip mulled wine and wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, and get away from the city without even leaving Chelsea. Shows runs Thursday to Sunday but make reservations early.
Later, make your way down the block to Porchlight, Danny Meyer’s cocktail bar with a Southern accent. The drinks are expertly crafted, the food menu is down-home Cajun, and the space is expansive. The best part? Because of how far west you’ve found yourself, you’ll enjoy the signature hospitality found in all of Meyer’s establishments, but without the tight quarters of a crowd. Head to the back, where you’ll find a game room with darts and retro board games.
