Sofar Sounds NYC: Bringing The Magic Back To Live Music

Events On Going Sofar Sounds NYC Live Music Rooftop

If you’re into music, really good music, incredible artists and intimate events in unique spots, this is for you! Many have already heard of Sofar Sounds NYC, right?!

Events On Going Sofar Sounds NYC Live Music

It all started with a group of friends playing great live music in someone’s living room, back in London! People were chit-chatting during the show and this group of friends couldn’t really enjoy the band, as they wanted.

So, they decided to start hosting private, secret gigs, with fantastic upcoming bands, in their own living room. In no time, rooms were filled up and people were fighting for a spot at their events.

Then, their concept simply went global, and they started hosting events in several different cities and countries. Today, they are in over 300 cities and are still able to keep it private and secret.

How it works? You’re able to see the neighborhood the shows will happen, but you have no idea which 3 bands are performing. When you sign up, you need to wait for the confirmation that your ticket is confirmed. Then, the exact location is sent through email only a few hours prior to the show.

But wait!!! All Behind the Scenes NYC followers have a promo-code allows you to skip the line and guarantees you instant access when purchasing tickets! WUHU!

The code is: BEHINDTHESCENES (Code might change every now and then, so contact us if it doesn’t work!)

NYC’s Sofar scene has now grown and they host almost 100 events a month. Lucky us!

Take a look online at the upcoming shows and go online to save your spot! Don’t forget to use our promo-code!

Our Contributor, Cris Peixoto, wrote about a different type of experience in the City! Skip the shopping and come try Flower School NY! Experience flower arranging classes in NYC.

People visit New York for many reasons: the amazing museums, awarded Broadway plays or the incredible variety of restaurants. We have one more to add to this extensive list: Flower School NY.

Located in the trendy Chelsea neighborhood, the school is a place to explore your flower arrangement design skills. You might also want start a new profession or just spend some time relaxing and getting creative.

Eileen Johnson, the Founder, decided to open the school after realizing that there wasn’t anything similar in the city: “I always wanted to have my own business and I love to entertain. I had thought of having a cooking school, but there were already so many…”.

So, she saw an article in the NY Times about a flower arrangement program in Paris and was intrigued. The experience was really enjoyable and when she came back to NY she decided to start the Flower School wanting “to highlight the artists who are in New York”.

Moreover, the program is really extensive, with classes for all levels, available year-round. You don’t need any previous experience to join. The professional program lasts 8 weeks with a month-long internship in a real flower shop.

In the Spring, the Flower School NY offers a trip to Holland where students can experience the unique flower auction in Aalsmeer, visit local florists and attend workshops with some local masters.

The trip is opened to anyone interested. Plus, it’s an opportunity to learn the behind the scenes of the flower industry.

Speaking of masters, Eileen brings the most renowned ones to give workshops throughout the year. Names like: Christian Tortu, Oscar Mora, Olivier Giugni, Shane Connoly – Prince Charles’ personal florist, just to name a few. Each one with his or her own technique and style.

Like great chefs we are highlighting the art and artistry of great florists”, says Eileen.

I have, myself, attended the professional program. Besides the professionalism from the instructors and the staff, the classes were just delightful and therapeutic.

Eileen has big plans. Next is the Perfume School of NY for people who want to learn the art of perfume making with some of the best perfumers of the world.

“There’s a resurgence of interest in artisanal perfuming and we are interested in being part of it.”

On your next trip to New York City, put aside the shopping and try the Flower School and their flower arranging classes in NYC!

In addition, you enjoy this type of activity, you might want to try the community-driven classes at Brooklyn Brainery and a unique Korean cooking class in a gorgeous kitchen in Manhattan.

Lastly, for corporate activities, let your experts organize a fantastic experience for your and your team.

During Business School, Jenny and her husband Matt, found it difficult to find a comfortable environment to meet interesting strangers and talk openly with friends. So, they started the I Forgot It’s Wednesday dinners with a unique mission to actively engage people on a deeper level.

Jenny is a professional chef and has a background in fine dining. Most recently she was part of the team at 2 Michelin starred Atera, in New York City. Her husband, Matt, a self-taught mixologist, recently won the Star Chefs Cocktail Competition. Amazing duo, right?

Since January 2014 they’ve hosted 70+ dinners, including 3 large scale popup events.

They just relaunched their dining experiences in New York City last month, after taking over San Francisco by storm last year.

They were named the “#1 supperclub in SF” by the prestigious 7×7 magazine, over Michelin-starred Lazy Bear! In addition,  SF Weekly, Eater and other renowned publications featured them!

Their February relaunch was profiled by UrbanDaddy. They’ve since been written up in Huffington Post and Epoch Taste as well!

I Forgot It’s Wednesday Dinner Series:

  • Location: Artist Loft in Chelsea – 18th and 8th Avenue
  • Dates & Times: Dinner – one Saturday a month at 8pm
  • Price: 7 Course Dinner | 4 Cocktail Flight: $85 | $30
  • Website & Menu: Check online

Today, the dinner series does not happen anymore, but they created Studio ATAO. It’s a 501(c)3 is a nonprofit, mission-driven immersive events company that creates exhibitions & live experiences at the intersection of food, art and social impact.

Last, if you are looking for other dining experience in NYC or would like a private and catered experience for you, contact our experts. On the other hand, we also work with companies of all sizes to organize corporate events and dinners.

The Natural Gourmet Institute was founded on the principle that what we eat significantly affects our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Of course, we couldn’t agree more with this statement, since we are huge believers of “we are what we eat”.

They’ve created a framework for healthy food selection. It’s based on high quality ingredients, concepts of Eastern & Western nutrition and a variety of dietary paradigms.

They offer different types of courses, like the ones below:

  • Summer Immersions: A summer course where you learn not only the theory, but also have hands-on classes;
  • Certificate Programs: Students work and meet accomplished chefs, industry experts and partners;
  • Classes: Some last 5+ days, other 3 days, others only a couple of hours. Student go home ready to experiment in their own kitchen;
  • Professional Training: You’ll master the art of healthy cooking through 600 hours of rigorous, life-changing culinary education.

Furthermore, most of the products used are organic, which we particularly enjoy, since we only shop organic.

Plus, they offer a super unique Friday Night Dinner. This three-course vegetarian dinner is both innovative and beautifully presented. Something New Yorkers love! They charge $45/person, which is a super reasonable price for a NY dinner. And last, it’s a BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle), so feel free to bring in which ever drink makes you smile!

And don’t forget to check out their book store. You’ll find amazing books that are actually pretty hard to find out there.

Alternatively, to organize an experience with friends with true NYC cooking classes or to put together a corporate activity for your clients or team, contact our experts to learn more. It will be an amusing activity for everyone!

Location: 48 West 21st Street, 2nd floor
