Field Trip: Due West

Elevated and Funky Neighborhood Go-To

Name: Due West

Vibe: Trendy

Address: 189 W 10th Street (2.1 miles from Ollie at Carmel Place, and 5.0 miles from ALTA+ by Ollie)


If you’re looking for a classic trendy NYC spot, Due West is where you should go. An interesting combination of club-meets-restaurant, there’s a lot going on and little space to move about, but the energy in the venue is upbeat and fun. Their cocktails are super creative (and strong), definitely get the Dead Reckoning (pretty sure this one comes in a tiki glass!) or Old Diablo for an extra kick start to the night. This is good for a late tapas-style dinner, but try to come in a group of four or fewer and expect at least an hour wait to be seated. However, there are plenty of people just there for drinks, so you can kill time before your dinner with a cocktail or two!
