New York City Guide with House Producers Walker & Royce

||||||||||||

Following last week's visit to São Paulo, we continue the My City series with another urban jungle - New York. Home to the Empire State Building, Times Square, Statue of Liberty and Spiderman, we simply couldn't avoid taking a trip to the city that never sleeps.

This week's tour comes from New York City's Deep House duo Walker & Royce and the boys have taken time out of touring the West Coast to give us a guide to their hometown. Walker & Royce's track "Connected" quickly became a house anthem, and further releases have set the stage for a diverse range of sounds from the pair. Check out Walker & Royce's latest release "My Dream" here:

Best bar for a few drinks?

The Woods in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) - This place is a sweaty hipster mosh pit on the weekends but has a really big backyard with food and cheap drinks. We also know all the bartenders which helps a lot.

Best club for a few too many?

Le Bain in the Meatpacking District (Manhattan) - On the weekends this part of town can be a nightmare, cheesy frat boys, stuck up girls falling over drunk, but Le Bain has managed to always keep the music fresh and different, plus you can't beat the view of the city from the roof.

Place you go to clear your head or gain some inspiration?Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO (Brooklyn) - This is a park that is in the middle of all this chaos yet somehow is one of the most peaceful spots in the city, good for collecting your thoughts.

Favourite restaurant for a dinner date?

Maialino in Gramercy (Manhattan) - A warm and rustic Italian restaurant with amazing food and great atmosphere. A bit on the pricey side but you get what you pay for.
