The best ways to spend 24 hours in the city that never sleeps…

New York, New York. Home to the high rise, shopping heaven, and a night-life that makes it quite different from anywhere else in the world. With so much going on at any one time, it can be difficult to decide how to spend your precious time. So we’ve taken the decision making out of it for you and have put together a guide to spending 24 hours in the Big Apple. Start booking those flights now…

 

Bounce on up at JumpLife: Shake off that jet lag and burn some serious calories with this super fun rebounding class (that’s trampolining to you and me). Based in a nightclub style setting, you’ll bounce the morning away to current chart tunes, toning up in a way that’s kind to the joints. www.jumplife.com

Breakfast at Dimes: Refuel at the Lower East Side hipster’s breakfast venue of choice with unusual favourites that include “Magic Toast” (rhubarb, fig, goat’s cheese and chamomile), Lavender Acai Bowls or the scrambled egg and avocado Breakfast Sandwich. www.dimesnyc.com

Be a culture vulture in Chelsea: Not sure of your way around the best galleries and current exhibitions? Simply download the See Saw App from the iTunes store. Giving you the ability to search by area and artist, it also gives you opening hours, visiting details and recommendations from editors. Free (iTunes).

Celebrity spot at The Butcher’s Daughter: Keep your eyes peeled for A-listers, (Karlie Kloss is rumoured to be a regular) and grab a juice at the best-kept West Village secret, The Butcher’s Daughter. Think cold-pressed juices and raw smoothies – plus salads and healthy stone-oven pizzas if you’re in the mood for something more substantial. www.thebutchersdaughter.com

Get the A-list facial at the Georgia Louise Atelier: Give your skin a post-flight boost at one of Manhattan’s most exclusive beauty locations. As the go-to therapist for Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence and Linda Evangelista, Georgia Louise is renowned for the unique Lift and Sculpt method she’s developed during her 15 years of experience. This year, as our new ELEMIS Consulting Facialist, she’ll be introducing BIOTEC treatments, combining hands-on massage with high tech and our signature “science meets nature” philosophy. After spending a few hours in the haven of her salon, sipping on herbal tea and watching Cire Trudon candles flicker, you’ll emerge with skin that’s fresher, plumper and dewier for the night ahead. www.georgialouise.co.uk

Have afternoon tea: If you’re going to indulge, you may as well stick with tradition and head to The Palm Court at The Plaza. In the decadent surroundings of this Manhattan hotel, you’ll sit amongst the palm trees beneath a glorious, domed glass ceiling as you nibble on treats such as cucumber sandwiches, freshly baked scones, key lime tart and macarons. www.theplazany.com

See the sunset in at The Frying Pan: After a stroll along the High Line, where better to watch the sun go down over the skyscrapers than beside this historic vessel? Docked permanently at Pier 66 Maritime within the Hudson River Park, the nearby Pier 66 Maritime Bar and Grill cocktail menu includes creative concoctions such as the Misty Sails (red berry vodka, blue curaçao, lime and cranberry) and Captain John (rum, amaretto and pineapple). www.pier66maritime.com

Dine under the stars at Sabbia: Continue the maritime theme at Sabbia’s pop-up Italian seaside rooftop restaurant. With oysters, swordfish, octopus and grilled vegetables on the menu, it’s like a taste of the Mediterranean in Manhattan. www.eataly.com
