If you’re feeling like your energy is low during these cold, dreary days, but you don’t want to just stay home all the time, here are six places where you can go to just veg out:
1. Aire Ancient Baths
This bath house in Tribeca is three stories tall and contains a variety of hot, cold, saltwater and multijet pools where you can lounge for up to two hours. You can also pay extra for a massage.
2. Dream Hotel
You can actually win a night in the luxurious Dream Hotel—the Fever app has a raffle going on right now. You’ll get to live like a king in the lavish Silver King Room, featuring spectacular skyline views, a 40 inch TV, and wifi. You’ll also get complimentary breakfast.
3. AMC Loews 84th Street 6
Here you can watch a movie in an incredibly comfortable reclining chair. Tickets for these showings usually sell out, so be sure to book them in advance.
4. Museum of Feelings
Yes, there is actually a Museum of Feelings in NYC. But are you really that surprised? The exhibits are designed to awaken our senses and make you feel calm, joyful, and optimistic, which you might need now that the days are colder and darker.
5. Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
This cozy bookstore is a great place to have a cup of coffee and read, or meet up with a friend for a chat. And you can feel good about your purchases: all the proceeds go to help homeless people living with HIV.
6. Brooklyn Brewery
You can drink five beers for only $20 in the Brooklyn Brewery’s tasting room. You can also play cards, order pizza and hang out for as long as you want. It’s the perfect winter weekend plan.
