PATRICIA FIELD BOUTIQUE

“My favourite spot in NYC will forever be the Patricia Field boutique which sadly closed its doors to the public in 2015. This place had something for everyone and was a complete wonderland to walk in to. You almost couldn’t believe your eyes upon entering. Catering to the club kid, queer, drag & trans and just out right stylish-crowd, Patricia Field (stylist of Sex & The City, Devil Wears Prada & more) really created a fashion forest that many people could call home. Including myself. I worked there for 6 years and to be honest, without this place, I would never have fully become the Dai Burger you see today. She continues to work with key designers and operates through an online website now. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! She is a living legend & I’m glad to have been brought up under such a prestige fashion Icon & stylist.”

JIMMYS CORNER- MID TOWN NY BAR

“Though a very tight bar, it hold so much history in its narrow walls. Not only is it jam packed with nostalgia, but the drinks are super duper cheap & its located in the heart of Times Square New York. Definitely a necessary pre-game pit stop on your way to the night club.”

HELLO BEAUTIFUL SALON & BOUTIQUE- WILLIAMSBURG BROOKLYN NY

“The absolute COOLEST spot for crazy coloured hair, rocking hair cuts, kawaii nail jobs & a store front boutique with many one of a kind pieces & accessories to complete your fab new look! The owner Rebecca Faye is one of my absolute favourite people ever, and sometimes i just hang out here to soak up vibes, promote & have some pure unadulterated FUN!”

MISS LILY’S 7A CARIBBEAN BAR & RESTAURANT

“Not only does this place do an amazing job of bringing a taste of the islands to NY, but they do it in such a cool trendy way. With in house DJ Rubie Lee (who also Dj’s for me when our schedules connect) you can always expect to come here, hear great music, eat great food, taste tropical drinks and just vibe out reggae style. You may even run into a few locals here, soaking it up the same.”

HAPPY ENDINGS- LOWER EAST SIDE NY –WEDNESDAY NIGHT PARTY

“This party really embodies the underground scene of pre-gaming SUPER HARD, rounding up ALL your friends, & turning some SEVERE looks, only to sweat in a crowded basement with the hottest DJ’s on the 1& 2’s. Its def a key- cameo spot to show off your latest & your greatest and get over your typical HUMP DAY in style.”
