A Night Out

Where to Go in NYC After Christmas (and Before NYE!)

The holiday withdrawals are here. But we know how to deal with them.

The gifts have been unwrapped, the carols have been sung, and the holiday ham is long gone. But if you’re still in the holiday spirit, there’s plenty to do before the season (and 2019!) comes to a close.

DRINK: Hot Coco at Citizens of Chelsea

Christmas may be over, but the winter weather isn’t going anywhere. Warm up at this charming Australian café with a smooth hot chocolate. Treat yourself to one more present this year and add Nutella for an extra sprinkle of sweet holiday cheer. 401 West 25th Street (between Ninth and Tenth Avenues), Chelsea

EAT: Roasted Raclette and Ramen at Refinery Rooftop

Even an unexpected snow squall can’t stop New Yorkers from enjoying a rooftop meal (in fact, it might just make the view that much more spectacular). But what’s really going to blow your mind is RR’s new winter menu, featuring mouthwatering dishes (hello, butternut squash rings) by chef Dan Nistorescu. Refinery Hotel, 63 West 38th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues), Chelsea

DO: Toe-Tap With the Best of Them at the Joyce Theater

Dancer extraordinaire Michelle Dorrance taps her way through her own very special interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. With astonishing choreography and a team of equally talented dancers behind her, this show will put your right back in the ’tis-the-season mood. 175 Eighth Avenue (between West 18th and 19th Streets), Chelsea
