We’re just about halfway through the summer and despite the unbearable temperatures and humidity we’ve been facing here in NYC, this summer has not been a bummer! We’ve compiled a list of some of the things we’re favoring in NYC this season:
On The Sea:
What’s better than oysters & rosé on a boat? Probably nothing. Spend your Summer Fridays on the Grand Banks oyster boat overlooking the Hudson River with views of the Freedom Tower and Statue of Liberty.
If you have an Instagram, then you know that this season’s hot spot outside of Manhattan is The Surf Lodge in Montauk. Currently dripping in rainbows courtesy of artist Jen Stark, the place is also dripping with celebrities.
On (Roof)Top of the World:
The S’well team is #blessed to have this view at the S’well bottle HQ. You might see an employee or two run up the staircase to hold whatever food of choice in the air with the skyline as the ideal background.
You have not experienced ice cream until you’ve tried Van Leeuwen’s recent special flavor, Honey Comb. This frozen scoop of heaven is unbelievably creamy and complimented by chunks of crispy honey comb that mixed in. Run and get a scoop before team S’well eats all that’s left in the city.
Our friends over at sweetgreen just released their Late Summer Menu and it is not to be missed. The Watermelon + Feta is the perfect salad to cool down with. The Guacamole Greens is like a burrito bowl, turned into a healthy salad, that can only be described as delicioso.
Best Rainy/Too Hot To Be Outside Day Activity:
The New Whitney is a must this Summer. Raining? So hot that you might melt? Retreat to the New Whitney in Meatpacking. Every detail of even the building is perfect; not to mention the actual artwork. The outside area with the rainbow color chairs is every instagramers dream. Don’t forget to visit Danny Meyer’s new Untitled below the Whitney for milk and cookies.
When it comes to our summer drink of choice, we’ve got 3 simple words for you; Rosé. All. Day. With that in mind, we made the best summer accessory for you, the “#OnlyRosé” S’well bottle! Pour a full chilled bottle right into this 25oz bottle and bring it anywhere from a beach getaway to a rooftop party. And don’t worry about condensation getting on the inside of your bag. The double-walled lining will keep your bottle sweat free!
In honor of “Wine Wednesday” or wine any day, follow our Winesday Pinterest board, highlighting all things we love about wine.

It’s not quite breakfast and it’s not yet lunch. You know it as well as we do, it might be the best meal of all; brunch. There’s something about waking up late, rolling out of bed and recalling memories of the previous night with friends over runny eggs (with mounds of avocado and hot sauce of course) and some hair of the dog that bit you the night before.
If you can’t tell, the members of team S’well are pro brunch. To honor our devotion to our favorite meal, we’ve created a Limited Edition Breakfast Club Collection featuring “Put an Egg on It” (it is the year of the egg after all) and Brunch!
We’ve additionally created a bottle being sold exclusively on KEEP, boasting everyone’s favorite summer drink, “#OnlyRosé.” The 25oz S’well can hold an entire bottle of wine and will keep it cold for 24 hours so you can Rosé all day this Summer.
This weekend, we’re hosting a launch event for the Breakfast Club, over Brunch of course, at the Surf Lodge in Montauk in collaboration with KEEP. Stalk the photos with the hashtag #keepbrunchswell and live vicariously through the runny egg avocado toast, frittatas and lox. The S’well bottles will be available online for purchase on Friday afternoon, while supplies last.
Happy World Oceans Day! To celebrate this holiday, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite beaches broken up by ocean. To show our best beaches, we have used photography courtesy of our friend and famed photographer, Gray Malin.
So whether you’re buying a Gray Malin photo to frame so you can have your own virtual vacation or you’re taking advantage of your Summer Fridays to book a spontaneous trip, any of these beaches will be sure to please. Don’t forget to pack your S’well bottle and post up in the sand with your drink of choice cold for 24 hours. If you haven’t already, take a look at our Textile Collection with linen inspired prints, perfect for a trip to paradise… Rumor has it there will be a new member of the Textile Collection releasing tomorrow too so stay tuned!
