Did you get your tickets yet for the NYC show on Saturday, Oct 1? ROAD TRIP ! ! ! !
- Comfort Inn Lower East Side
This is the closest hotel to Arlene’s, literally a block and a half. It’s similar to the Comfort Inn F.D. below, clean and seems like a good spot if you want to stay right in the heart of it all. But just to be clear, this part of the neighborhood is loud, so be ready to party.
- Hotel on Rivington
This is the second closest to Arlene’s. This was the first high-end hotel to come into the neighborhood so, lots of history as one of the first gentrification projects. It has an eclectic vibe. It also has a nice restaurant on the ground floor with a good brunch and is right next door to several brunch spots for those who might want to venture out on Sunday morning (we’ll still be up from the night before and probably need a refreshing Bloody Mary, so order a couple extra and we’ll get there).
- Sixty Lower East Side
This used to be called the Thompson Hotel. It was an awesome spot when we friends of ours stayed there. It’s the only hotel in the LES with a pool. So, y’all can get a little pool party time. There is also an open air bar and restaurant on the second floor called Blue Ribbon Beer Garden and one of the best sushi spots in the city, Blue Ribbon Sushi.
- Blue Moon Hotel
This is very boutique-like and small, but nice, and in an excellent location. The only thing about this hotel that we find amusing is that we never see anyone in the lobby during the day, which might mean it totally rocks at night. Party!
- Comfort Inn Financial District
About a 10-15 minute walk to Arlene’s (it’s not in the Financial District, even though that’s what they claim). Clean and reasonably priced.
- Howard Johnson
Hilarious that this is called the Howard Johnson Soho. It’s not in Soho, but tourists don’t know that. It’s smack dab in the middle of the LES next to Chinatown. It’s clean and is a good spot for the show, just a couple of blocks north of the first Comfort Inn listed above.
- Holiday Inn Lower East Side
This is in between Seward Park and Arlene’s. It’s north on Delancey Street, which starts to get into the noisy part of the neighborhood, so again, be ready to party.
We’ll be releasing our new single, Debutante, at the show! Share the news on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and tag #grubspoon (after you get your tickets of course).
