PLAN DATE: FRI / JUNE 21
This tiny Thai place is a Manhattan gem tucked into Hell’s Kitchen. It can feel crowded with only a handful of tables and a long bar with stools, but they open up the space with mirrors and big front windows. The crowd also guarantees one thing—good eats. They have all your favorite Thai dishes complete with housemade noodles and a plethora of curries with customizable levels of spice. They even play 80’s Thai music to complete the vibe.
After Thai chilis have you sweating, keep the perspiration going by busting a move at Hot Rabbit. Hot Rabbit is a huge queer dance party promising to draw upwards of 20,000 LBGTQ+ boogiers. Luckily they have a huge space to match: Stage 48, a massive four-level venue complete with a rooftop. Headlining is DJ Tatiana but there’s a number of talented DJs, performers, and artists scattered around the club.
