With their love for all things travel, food and fashion, Brock Williams and Chris Lin of the Yummertime blog were the perfect NYC visitors to take on an itinerary from Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York during their recent stay in our neighborhood.
From salumi pizza to matcha lemonade, rooftop parties to street art, the San Francisco-based travelers discovered the trademark grit-meets-glamour character that makes the LES such a captivating playground — and started planning their return trip to the hotel.
Pocket their always spot-on recommendations and discover your own perfect trip:
Where to Eat
Pizza Beach, 167 Orchard St
Wood-oven-fired pizzas, locavore style, are the draw here. Yummertime recommends: the salumi picante or pineapple and speck.
Where to Drink
Cha Cha Matcha, 373 Broome St
Having gone every day of their stay, Brock and Chris are experts, and they say: order the matcha lemonade.
Where to Hear Music
Mr. Purple, 171 Ludlow St
Atop Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York, Mr. Purple offers panoramic city views and killer drinks (Yummertime tip: get the frozen margs). Catch a DJ or a special event; Brock and Chris saw St. Lucia play during the Uber Summer Concert Series.
Where to Stay
Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York, 171 Ludlow St
Yummertime was “obsessed” with the rooftop pool, Mr. Purple restaurant and bar, guest room with floor-to-ceiling windows and central location — the perfect home base to discover the galleries, restaurants and shops of the Lower East Side.
