We all know we will have a good time on Cinco de Mayo but the bigger question is where? That’s where we come in. We’ve listed the top 5 lounges to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in NYC for 2019.
But wait, what is Cinco de Mayo?
What’s the Story Behind Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco the Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a date reserved to celebrate the victory of the Mexican army against the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862 during the Franco-Mexican war. The holiday is considered a minor one in Mexico but it has evolved into a day of commemorating Mexican heritage and culture in the United States. In the US, Cinco de Mayo is celebrated not only in areas with Mexican-American populations but among whoever wants to celebrate.
Now, without further ado, let’s talk about the top 5 lounges to celebrate Cinco de Mayo 2019.
If you are looking for a venue that will give you a nostalgic yet trendy feel then VNYL is perfect for you. VNYL stands for Vintage New York Lifestyle and it truly embodies the feel of a vintage New York. VNYL has 3 floors with over 7,000 square feet of space. The place has everything you will ever need from cocktail drinks, a small plate menu, and even a coffee shop.
So if you think that you want to spend Cinco de Mayo lost in a wave of nostalgia, good music, and some good old East Village partying then VNYL is perfect for you.
If ever you find yourself on the Lower East Side on Cinco de Mayo and you are looking for a place to chill then you’d probably want to head down to The DL. With a whopping 7,500 square-feet of area strewn across 3 floors, The DL is one of the go-to lounges in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
The first floor is a restaurant and the second floor offers a different experience with its sultry and sexy Red Room. The third floor, however, is where the best parties happen. Drink Cinco de Mayo away while enjoying the view of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Lower East Side skyline. Cinco de Mayo will definitely be much better staring at the night lights of Manhattan.
