Best Time To Go: Happy Hour

New York is known for its mixing of various cultures including many from the Caribbean. At Negril Village patrons have the opportunity to be introduced to the culture of the Caribbean through drinks, food and music.

Negril Village is a full service restaurant, offering Jamaican style dinner, lunch, and brunch. Indulge in Caribbean favorites such as Jamaican National Dish Ackee and Saltfish, Trinidadian style Roti and Curry, or Jerk Rubbed Chicken. Pretty much every dish here is worth sampling.

The food isn’t the only taste of the Caribbean you get to sample here. In addition to the Caribbean inspired cocktails such as the Dancehall Queen and Pomegranate Rum Punch the bar allows patrons to sample Caribbean beer as well. Try the popular Jamaican favorite Red Stripe, Trinidad & Tobago’s Carib, or Shandy. Not quite ready to venture out? They also offer American favorites Guinness, Heineken, Amstel Light and Corona. This classy restaurant also offers $4 – $6 drink specials during Happy Hour, which is a great chance to mingle with young professionals.

What Caribbean experience would be complete without a taste of Caribbean music? Downstairs the Rhum Lounge warms you with its raisin interior and red lacquer floors. They have an in-house DJ who spins the best in Caribbean music, including Reggae, Soca, Calypso, R&B and Hip-hop. Feel free to enjoy your drinks or dinner down there as well.

We all need a vacation from their normal day to day routine every once in a while, why not sample a Caribbean getaway in your own backyard? Negril Village is a lively yet sophisticated place to enjoy good people, sublime drinks and a trendy ambiance.

Pros: Great food and drinks, Sexy people

Cons: Can’t think of any
