This Mailroom Is Serving Up Chic Cocktails And We’re Obsessed

hbz-mailroom-nyc-05-1513114228
The Financial District is known for classic establishments like Delmonico’s and Harry’s Bar, but the downtown area around Wall Street has begun to move away from the stuffy banker’s bars of decades past, heralding new trendy spots that would make any New Yorker relinquish the Lower East Side and move even further downtown. Case in point: Mailroom. Situated beneath WeWork’s latest concept, WeLive, the space acts as part mailroom to the residents that live above, and part speakeasy bar to the fashion set and young professionals alike. While WeWork has become known for its shared office spaces that foster small businesses and freelancers, WeLive aims to create a living space that fosters community, flexibility and those looking to forgo the traditional living environment. Their New York City location, right on...

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...

GO HERE: for chef Nick Perkins’ down-to-earth but beautiful Mediterranean-leaning food. He does wonders with fish and local vegetables, making you question how food so simple could be so dang good.

Could Traveling To Green Destinations Make You Happier?

green-landscapes
I had woken up at 6:00 a.m. to get to Waimea Canyon State Park on Kauai by sunrise, squeezing it in ahead of a packed day. After about an hour of driving from the Grand Hyatt in Koloa, I pulled over at a lookout and leaned against the metal fence, staring out into the gorge where chestnut browns met emerald green hues. I stood there for 10 minutes, completely entranced by the rugged terrain and distinctive grooves that ran through the hills, before jumping back in my car and continuing upward. I stopped at three more viewpoints along the way, ending in Koke‘e State Park, catching glimpses of Kalalau Valley and the Na Pali Coast, and spent about an hour completely wrapped up...

The Trans-Siberian Railway Might Soon Take Passengers From London To Tokyo

trans-siberian-railway-1505307567

A journey on the Trans Siberian Railway is often hailed as the trip of a lifetime, mostly because the 6,152 mile route between Moscow and Vladivostok is believed to be the longest you can take on just one train. Yet the historic railway could soon become even more spectacular, thanks to an ambitious proposal from the Russian government.

Russia has recently announced its plan to link the Trans-Siberian Railway from London to Tokyo, The Independent reports. Beginning in Britain's capital, the 8,400 mile route would take travelers through Germany, Poland, and the Russian mainland before finishing in Hokkaidok, the northernmost of Japan’s main islands, where it would link with the Japanese rail network.
