Hell\'s Kitchen featuring a bar, interior views and dining out
Discover the charm of what was once one of New York’s most notorious neighborhoods. Today it has a village vibe, a flourishing arts scene and great restaurants.

The once infamous Hell’s Kitchen is now one of New York City’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods. Come to this lively district to find locally owned cafés and restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, trendy wine bars and funky lounges, big green parks and a true community spirit.

Hell’s Kitchen had a bad reputation for many years, most notably when it was dominated by the Irish mob. In the past, it was a no-go area for many New Yorkers. Venture here today, however, and learn what a different place Hell’s Kitchen has become. Its proximity to Broadway has resulted in a thriving performing arts scene. It offers affordable housing that attracts young families and is particularly popular with the LGBT community.

Experience a bustling, buzzing vibe day and night in Hell’s Kitchen. By day, walk the busy sidewalks and visit delicious-smelling bakeries, quaint little bistros and well-stocked bodegas. Street vendors tout their wares, including everything from flea market curiosities to farmers’ market produce, amid a friendly, village atmosphere. Brunch is big business in Hell’s Kitchen, so join the locals and sit down to a hearty mid-morning feast in one of the area’s many chic yet comfortable restaurants. Whether it’s traditional eggs Benedict, sushi or feel-good grilled cheese sandwiches you are looking for, you will find it in this eclectic neighborhood.

By night, the neighborhood comes alive with a diverse array of bars. Hop between swanky wine bars, craft beer pubs and kitsch dive bars. The local dining scene has also gained Hell’s Kitchen plenty of attention from foodies in New York City and beyond. Explore the options along Ninth Avenue for a wonderful selection of ethnic restaurants.

Hell’s Kitchen is easy to reach by cab or public transportation. Once there, explore by foot. Take a stroll in the lovely big park along West Side Highway, or walk the banks of the Hudson River. Get out on the water on a kayaking or boat trip and enjoy the wholesome side of a once disreputable district.
