Sophisticated men require two things: the right drink, and deep knowledge of his city's underground offerings -- but while the former's easily acquired, the latter's elusive, especially if you're content sitting at home, slowly sipping the right drink. Fortunately, the right drink's here to help: Jameson's Insider Discoveries.
Founded in 1780 and now the world's fastest growing whiskey, Jameson's taking the savvy only a 228-year-old man of leisure could possess, and applying it to pinpointing NYC's smoothest under-the-radar action. The lineup:
Late-night at Sew: The first Wednesday of December (and then semi-regularly throughout the year), this bespoke tailor will stay open late and serve drinks while fitting for button-downs, suits, jackets, seven-fold ties, and even jeans -- because why have a fitted shirt if your pants balloon like denim topsails?
Free Shipping on the Baddest Cufflinks Ever: Steampunk Cufflinks curiously changed their name to the less-nihilistic "Watch-Cufflinks.com", but their 'links remain classily aggressive, using Swiss watch guts for an industrial-chic look that takes the micro-brilliance of precision timekeeping, and relegates it to clasping together a piece of cotton. Click here to check 'em out and get free shipping by entering THRILLIST at checkout.
Shane and Shawn Discount/VIP: Mention "Thrillist" when purchasing any of S&S's eponymous line of athletically enhanced leather lace-ups, loafers, and half-boots, and get a free shirt and hat (combined value = $74); then head back to their Moroccan-styled VIP room to inhale exotic flavors, and ponder why a shoe shop has a hookah lounge.
Special Cocktail at Citrine: Hit this ridiculously plush lounge between Thanksgiving and the Holidays, and ask the bartender for the off-the-menu Rose's Pear Juice and vodka "Partridge in a Pear Tree". Then go hang on dance-friendly banquettes stuffed with pulsing sub-woofers, whose vibrations will make you feel like a "Housewife on a Washing Machine".
