The Yard @ SoHo Grand Hotel – The Perfect Summer Hangout Place in NYC
Cute waitresses, good drinks, located in the happening neighborhood of SoHo and last but not the least, its outdoors!!! Ladies and Gentleman, say hello to “The Yard”.
Now some of you that actually read my “About me” section know that I just moved to NY (Shame on the rest of you for not reading it!!!!). Prior to moving here, I lived in Seattle for 5 years. And as most of you might have heard, living in Seattle = NO SUNSHINE FOR MOST OF THE YEAR. So most people from Seattle really learn to appreciate the summer because its pretty much the only time of the year when you actually see sunshine. As such, I try to go to as many summer friendly places as I can so that I can soak up the sun and enjoy the good weather. The Yard definitely serves this cause. It doesn’t have blaring music; so you can actually enjoy a conversation, and at the same time, is outdoors, so you can enjoy the weather as well.
Drinks are a bit on the expensive side (mixed drinks cost about $14) and the food comes in small portions…but hey, thats a small price to pay for a good summer joint and some eye candy walking around. I am looking into finding a lot more of these summer friendly places, so if you have any suggestions, leave a comment and let me know.
P.S…. I wish I had taken a camera. Totally forgot to. Photo below is one I found online.
