Bugaboo luggage: chassis, cabin case and laptop bag

New York is the business traveller’s terra firma. A city that never sleeps, things seem to move more rapidly here, so you’ll be in your element with your Bugaboo Boxer complete with detachable laptop bag. Finish up business downtown, drop off your laptop and add-on briefcase before hitting the town to work the city by night.

TO STAY

Crosby Street Hotel, Soho

Crosby Street Hotel joins quirky contemporary design with homely comforts for a characterful yet classic stay. Kitsch interiors are characteristic of designer Kit Kemp’s flair, seen in textured wall-coverings, patterned wallpaper and colourful artworks. After a busy day jumping between meetings around town, you can’t help but be buoyed up by the hotel’s vibrant aesthetics – though you may want to crash in the state-of-the-art cinema.

TO EAT

The Grill

Sidestep the power lunch and head straight for dinner at this confident midtown spot in the former Four Seasons space. Run by the people behind Carbone, the steakhouse serves up classic dishes and punchy cocktails and lethal prices. The theatrical Seagram Building space is sure to impress even the testiest of dinner guests.

TO DRINK + DANCE

Bathtub Gin

This drinking den is heralded among in-the-know New Yorkers, making it a hot spot to have up your sleeve if you’re entertaining clients. Enter the speakeasy through a coffee shop, sidestepping the vintage bathtub placed centre stage upon entry. The name and decor are inspired by Prohibition era “bathtub gin”, when poor quality spirits were mixed with other flavourings and steeped in a tub for several hours (and sometimes days). Moody lighting and sharp cocktails seal the deal.

TO DO

Shop at The Apartment by The Line

In the heart of SoHo, this on-trend concept store presents one-off design objects and luxury clothing in the intimate setting of a home. Storied objects span fashion, interiors and beauty items as well as original works of art. You may be here on business, but it’d be rude not to shop while in New York.
