It’s going to be a busy summer and spring season in NYC, and especially in the East Village! Rogue House Salon has called this place our home for the past six years and we’re happy to be a part of this community!

NYC Pride Month

New Restaurant Openings

One thing we LOVE about East Village is the food. Summer means a few things to us city dwellers but it always includes exploring the new eateries that just opened! Japanese, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Jamaican, and Italian — you can find them here in one of the best dining neighborhoods in NYC.

Here are some of newest hot spots in East Village that are worth checking:

  • Rowdy Rooster (149 1st Avenue, East Village)
  • Calle San Marcos (113 St. Marks Place, East Village)
  • Singlish (17 East 13th Street)
  • Viva Cucina (85 2nd Ave – Corner of E. 5th St. NY, NY)
  • Gongo (15 St Marks Place, New York, NY)

Tons of Dog-friendly Places

NYC Dog Parks

New York City is ranked as one of the most dog-friendly cities in America, with dog parks in all five boroughs and an estimated 500,000+ pet dogs living here.

Needless to say, NYC is as much a playground for pets as it is for people. Walk around East Village and you’ll surely find dog-friendly restaurants and pet-friendly hotels. The area also has accessible dog parks that you and your furry friend can enjoy.

When dining, do take note of the following:

  • Non-service dogs are allowed to dine with you in outdoor seating areas, at the discretion of the restaurant owner. (Please make sure to ask)
  • While dining, dogs should be on a leash or in a crate (plus naturally they can’t dine at the table or share your dishes)
