New in the Big Apple: The Bar at the Dream Hotel offers eclectic quaffs such as Arrogant Bastard Ale, best enjoyed in one of the venue's cigar-brown armchairs upholstered with menswear fabrics. The stylish 216-room Midtown hotel also offers the rooftop Ava Lounge, which can host up to 150 people for private events (or up to 300 using other spaces on-site).

At sunset, head down to Chelsea Piers and Classic Harbor Line's new Schooner America 2.0, an elegant 85-passenger yacht that takes in the sights of New York Harbor and the Lower Manhattan skyline. Cruises can be themed to architecture, food and more.
