The 36-Hour Spa Weekend: Brooklyn

image

I don’t know about you guys, but all this warm spring weather has me seriously itching to travel. While I won’t be able to get away for a long vacay this month, I can take a gander at Birchbox Man's first ever city guide to one of my favorite places: Brooklyn.

In the spirit of the New York Times’ mini-cation columns, these insider recommendations have all of the best spots to eat (steak frites at Prime Meat), drink (picklebacks at Do or Dine) and more. While the selections are geared towards the gentlemen, there are still decidedly lady-friendly spots that you should hit (with or without him).

Herewith: a guide to your 36 Hour Spa Weekend in Brooklyn
