While We Were Young

I know I'm not the only one that often times chooses a restaurant or bar based on the atmosphere or aesthetic. In all fairness, the atmosphere can make or break the experience so it's better to have that in check before you venture out.

During my latest trip to New York, my friend and I spent the morning exploring Meatpacking District, Chelsea, and West Village. After several hours, we took a break from the heat in this tiny, insta-worthy hot spot in West Village, While We Were Young.  When I walked in, I recognized it from posts I had seen on Instagram taken several weeks prior during fashion week – I knew it was going to be a fun visit.

Everything about this kitchen and bar was so cute, from the crafty cocktails and marble tables to the peach toned sofa seating and floor to ceiling windows. Next time you're in New York City, consider stopping in this West Village gem.
