Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 19th, and if you’re still trying to figure out last minute plans, boy do we have a list for you.
This Father’s Day, give Dad a break from all of the shopping in NYC and treat him to a manly trip downtown. (Don’t worry, you’ll have fun too!)
Without further ado, hop-off the bus & enjoy our favorite things to do in NYC this Father’s Day:
Go back in time when you step into McSorely’s Ale House in the East Village. Established in 1854, this charming, hole in the wall bar has become a New York institution. Famous for the McSorley’s Ale, this manly Irish joint is the oldest bar in the city. Sit back, relax and enjoy a few beers to celebrate Father’s Day.
15 East 7th Street, New York, NY 10003-8001 (212) 474-9148 mcsorleysnewyork.com
If you can only hop-off at one of these locations on the list, Standard BierGarten is hands down the place to go. Located in the trendy (is that still cool to say?) Meatpacking District, Standard Biergarten has community style tables, $8 German draft beers and fresh-baked pretzels the size of your head. Cheers to Dad!

After hanging out in the Biergarten, walk a few blocks south to Highline Park– a public park built on an old elevated rail structure. This concrete jungle is a New Yorker’s version of hiking in the outdoors.
529 West 20th Street, Suite 8W New York, NY 10011 (212) 500-6035
This multilevel, year-round driving range has been featured in a ton of movies! Practice your swing and get ready for a fun round of golf with Dad.

5. Wall Street
It’s every mans dream to work on Wall Street. Hop-off and explore the cobblestone streets, take a picture with the bull & gaze up the noble steps of the NYSE.

End the day with a huge, traditional Italian feast in Little Italy. Our Night on the Town Tour and Manhattan Comprehensive both include a yummy dinner at Grotta Azzura. Founded in 1908 by the Davino family, Grotta Azzura is one of New York City’s famous and oldest Italian Restaurants in the heart of Little Italy.
