The Best Brewery And Beer Bar In New York City

threes-brewing-backyard

After being a little late to the game, New York City is now one of the best beer cities in the states, thanks to an amazing crop of young breweries, second-to-none international distribution, visionary bar owners, and close proximity to high-quality pizza. Public transportation allows you to hit three or four or five breweries in a single day and still end up at a beer bar for dinner. Get your drinking shoes on. It’s time to hit the streets.

Welcome To The Coco Club

Leaning in to the old adage that time is the greatest luxury, Chanel has created the Coco Club—a new space in New York for fans to unwind and pamper themselves, and to promote its new Boy∙Friend watch collection.
This Sunday, the luxury brand will be taking over the SoHo location of The Wing (a women-only work and social space) redesigning the already bright and feminine rooms in the French house’s traditional minimalist aesthetic. Luxe cream and black furniture adorned with the label’s interlocking “CC” logo are juxtaposed with vintage picture frames and trinkets, as well as the neon pink photo booths where guests will have their portraits taken for their club “passports.”

Who is it? In her role as head of social media at optical brand Warby Parker, Jen Rubio was clocking up over 300,000 air miles a year. On her travels she noticed that, monogrammed-trunkers aside, she couldn’t find a luggage brand that any of her peers loved or would recommend. Setting up with her best friend and then-colleague Steph Korey, Rubio sought to follow their eyewear brand employer’s direct-to-consumer business model, in the hopes that that...

Where To Find The Best Food And Drink In Greenville, South Carolina

00-story-image-greenville-south-carolina-culinary-guide
Greenville, South Carolina, might not be on every epicure’s list (yet), but it’s only a matter of time. It’s currently touted as an emerging food-driven city, following in the culinary footsteps of Charleston. Greenville is a big city with a small-town feel, nestled between some of the South’s biggest players: Atlanta, Charlotte, Asheville, and the aforementioned Charleston. Mayor Knox White can be credited for bringing vibrancy downtown, along with Carl Sobocinski, president of Table 301 Restaurant Group, who has helped bring the city’s culinary scene to life. “It’s unbelievable to think that not so long ago we were the only ones in town,” says Sobocinski. “The Greenville culinary scene has evolved—rapidly—and with new spots being announced all the time, it’s...

Beast In Toronto

BEAST_LEAD_TorontoCityGuide
GO HERE: for meaty whole-animal feasts and one of the best brunches in the city, if your ideal brunch includes house-made biscuit sandwiches and booze. Chef Scott Vivian is an unofficial ambassador for Toronto’s food scene, lobbying out-of-town tastemakers like Anthony Bourdain to experience the city and bringing in guest chefs from all over the U.S. to host one-night-only dinners at his small restaurant, tucked away on a downtown residential street. It’s always been a popular spot with restaurant industry types. ORDER THE: whole menu. Parties of three or four can probably tackle all 15-ish dishes, which change often and frequently hit Mexican, South American, Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, and Korean notes. The whole-animal dinners, which feature a different part of a selected animal...

Where To Eat, Shop, And Party In London, According To Lady Clara Paget

Photo by Bartek Szmigulski.
You would hardly know from looking at Clara Paget’s Instagram that her proper title is Lady Clara Elizabeth Isis Paget. Her account is a frequently updated mixture of goofy videos, memes, pictures from late nights out, and the occasional cameo from BFF Cara Delevingne. But maybe that’s why we like her so much—Paget is by definition an “aristocrat,” but she handles her pedigree with an ease that is both approachable and irresistible. The 28-year-old feels just as at home acting in front of the camera and posing on the red carpet as she does posing for selfies with her glamorous pack of girlfriends. And through that very feed, you can’t help but get the sense that Paget is the woman...

THE EXTERIOR FACADE OF MAISON LOUIS VUITTON VENDÔME, ORIGINALLY DESIGNED BY JULES-HARDOUIN MANSART, THE ARCHITECT OF THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES.

Located at 2 Place Vendôme, the grand 18th-century building was where the brand's story began over 160 years ago. It was here—below two hôtel particuliers and behind a facade designed by Jules-Hardouin Mansart, the architect of the Palace of Versailles—that a young Louis Vuitton opened his first store. Today, the address has come back to life with the help of architect Peter Marino.

The city has hired a PR team as part of its feverish efforts to boost tourism after a string of terrorist attacks.

Why was Rihanna meeting with the president of France? In late July, the pop star wore a comically oversized navy blazer and an ostentatiously classic French designer purse (Dior) to meet with President Emanual Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, at their residence, Elysee Palace. “I <3 Madame First Lady #girlpower” Rihanna captioned her Instagram story pic of herself with Brigitte, who wore faded skinny jeans for the appointment.
