With chilly weather and short days, winter is the perfect time to indulge in some self-love. How you do it is up to you: soak in the custom marble-clad bathrooms as you take in views of Downtown NYC or enjoy a fine wine with your closest friends and bask in the comfort of your new luxury home. The options for residents at The Woolworth Tower Residences are endless. To make these moments even sweeter, why not give way to some well-deserved treats? We’ve selected a few of our favorite destinations in the city for confections, cakes, and cocktails.
Duane Park Patisserie | 179 Duane Street
For almost 30 years, this charming, bijou spot tucked along Duane Street has been serving high-sugar content to lucky locals, making it the go-to spot for Downtowners to get their fix. Whether it's a decadent chocolate cupcake topped with a well-balanced chocolate icing or their renowned wedding cakes that can cost in the thousands of dollars, Duane Park Patisserie delivers quality in a throwback-style atmosphere. As you peruse the pastry cases filled with goodies and stacked high with sugary treats, be on the lookout for seasonal offerings, like the snowman cookie or snowflake cake.
Woops! | 93 Worth Street
Is there a better way to brighten up a gray day than with the brightly colored and mouthwatering French macarons from this shop? Woops! started as a winter treat for visitors to the Bryant Park Winter Village more than seven years ago. Today, there are multiple Woops! bakeries around the country, but the most important one is the one closest to you at The Woolworth Tower Residences. These flavorful treats are great to have solo with a cup of tea on the way home from work or for a big blowout party. You can even customize and personalize them. With almost two dozen macaron flavors and dozens of other dessert options, it may just take you the entire winter to find your favorite. And if you don't feel like braving the cold, Woops! delivers too!
Liquor Lab | 138 Wooster Street
Have you ever sat at a bar and watched the bartender mix a cocktail like some modern-day alchemist? A sprig of something there, a splash of bitters, a mix of fresh juice ... wait, now they are lighting it up ... what is this magic? At Liquor Lab, you'll learn the art of modern mixology in a chic setting with some of the most skilled professionals around. Whether it's fine wine or a hoppy beer or potent spirit that is to your taste, Liquor Lab will teach you the history, recipes, and techniques you need to elevate your at-home imbibing experience (and impress guests). Keep your eye out for upcoming classes that will teach you the best cocktails in the world—or for those craving a bit of summer in a glass, how to make a winter margarita. Trust us, there's no better way to warm up.
After enjoying a delicious sweet treat or inspiring drink, bundle up to take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Tribeca and back to your home at The Woolworth Tower Residences.
