With half the summer already behind us, we’re sharing our weekend guide for you to enjoy the very best of what the city has to offer for the remaining warm weeks. Watching sunlight dance steadfast amongst the cars, crowds, and concourses of New York City, the alluring views from S’well Bottle HQ have us busy making plans for soaking up the sun.
Start your weekend off right by taking a stroll along the Williamsburg waterfront. Bring a few pals and your appetite and check out Smorgasburg along the way: a vendor collective, only available on weekends, and perhaps Brooklyn’s most eclectic bazaar. The food extravaganza provides everything from Blue Marble Ice Cream to Ramen Burgers. Between the flea markets, vendors, and elevated bars, we’re sure you’ll find something sweet or savory. Remember to bring the 9oz Smokey Eye from the Glitter Collection. Fill it with something sparkling and watch your bottle glisten from the inside out.
Guggenheim Museum, Upper East Side
Travel around the world and back again by visiting the Guggenheim. While promenading the museum’s scrolled paths, you’ll find a few steps can take you from the epic expanse of african sculpture to the occult domain of 21st century Expressionism. Match the museum’s blanc backdrop with our 9oz Moonstone bottle from the Stone Collection. As you engage in the unendingly explorable ethos of the Guggenheim, you’ll be happy you have a travel buddy there to quench your thirst.
Tip: Keep an eye out for S’well bottles on sale in the Guggenheim gift shop.
Baby’s All Right, Williamsburg
Invite your special someone to swig and shimmy at the treasured Williamsburg locale, Baby’s All Right. The 5,000 square foot space is sectioned into a bar, lounge, and music venue- so there’s a little something for everyone. We recommend chowing down on house favorites like the Risky Chicken or Creque Madame, while grooving to the likes of En Vogue, Chuck English, and Sonny & The Sunsets.
Tip: Watch as lights beam from the disco ball and reflect off your 9oz Silver Lining bottle from the Shimmer Collection, it’s certainly a sight to remember.
Rockaway Beach, Queens
Spend a Summer Friday at the beloved oceanfront made famous by S’well favorites like Woody Allen and the Ramones: Rockaway Beach. After traversing the ever-expansive boardwalks and capturing the ocean’s charm via Instagram, you’ll find within this vast city an infinite miniature one. Sand castles encircle cul-de-sacs as friends turn the ocean’s bouncing buoys into a game of whack-a-mole. Pack a 9oz Opal Marble from the Elements Collection with a S’well Cocktail and enjoy our version of the classic mimosa for hours to come.
High Line Park, Chelsea
If you ever tire of the city’s hustle and bustle, we highly recommend catching some shade along one of the most sustainable parks in NYC. With its local sourcing and bio-based operations, our friends at The High Line are our bona fide kindred spirits. Watch your eco-elegant crown shine while sipping from a 9oz Smokey Quartz from the Stone Collection, for bringing a S’well will ensure you align with the park’s planet-friendly vibe.
Tip: Near the center of The High Line, during a clear weekend night, take a look at the sky and wait for the stars to smile back. You’ll thank us later.
