No need to leave Harlem for NYE 2015,  celebrate at your favorite watering hole, restaurant or club in Harlem!  Last year almost every spot up and down Frederick Douglass Blvd (Harlem Restaurant Row), Lenox Ave and everything in-between held festive celebrations uptown.

Support your local businesses and neighborhood restaurants and bring in the new year with neighbors and friends.  Last year was very successful if it is any indication of how busy this year will be, so make sure to call and make a reservation ahead of time.  We have highlighted each venus website below for your convenience.  It is not too early to plan New Year’s Eve is right around the corner.

Minton’s and Cecil Two New Joints in Harlem with Old Appeal Coming this Fall

These new long awaited restaurants will take Harlem up several notches this fall.  Cecil is opening in September and Minton’s Jazz Club will open in October.  Minton’s as many may remember goes way way back to the 30’s in Harlem.  It has been restored and updated and definitely will play a part in bringing Harlem back!  We have been waiting for both of these for a long time and are very happy that they are just weeks away from opening.  We will be there for both Grand openings and look forward to this addition to classic Harlem.

In the meantime you can follow both on facebook and twitter (see below).  Stay tuned for upcoming dates and more information.
