January can be cruel, like temperature dipping, negative windchill, freezing cold cruel. While we all want to decamp to warmer destinations (Hello, Bahamas!) unfortunately we can’t always jet whenever the wind starts howling. Plus, winter in New York can be a wonderful experience, as long as you take the necessary precautions and add a few warm-up stations to your neighborhood list. Lucky for us, plenty of cozy locales exist, all within walking distance from Wagner Battery Park. So just when you can’t take it any longer, pop into these comfy destinations for a fun warm up.
The Wagner Battery Park: You’re in luck. All you have to do is head to our lobby for a lovely warm weather rejuvenation before venturing back into the cold. Inside Wagner Battery Park is our very own Illy Coffee cart, serving up the brand’s signature roasts plus soul-satisfying hot chocolate. Grab a seat and soak up the warmth.
Black Hound Bar and Lounge: Warm up with a hot toddy at this cozy little pub hidden in the bottom of the Financial District. It’s a great place to stop by for some craft cocktails and an authentic New York experience, not to mention its stellar soups will satisfy even the weariest, chilliest guest.
iPic Theater: When you need a solid two hour warm up after a long morning outdoors, there’s nowhere better to brush off the chill than iPic, a luxurious movie theater experience at the South Street Seaport, featuring lounge seats with their own tables for snacks and sweets, as well as beer, wine and cocktails.
Century 21: After a day spent outside, is there really a better way to up your body temperature than shopping at bargain prices? Nothing gets our mojo going like a fantastic pair of shoes at sale prices, and Century 21 features all the designer name brands at a fraction of the retail cost. Spanning two-plus floors, it’s easy to get lost in there and before you know it, you’ll feel hot from all the killer savings you just scored.
