Itinerary Alert: The Ultimate™ Girl's Day Out | NYC

Updated: May 1, 2022

If you're looking for the perfect girl's outing, the following itinerary provides the perfect amount of walking, shopping, dining and gallivanting around New York City's Soho.

Start out with dining at Grand Banks - a seasonal oyster bar atop a docked sailboat on the Hudson River. It opens for the season in mid-April and offers a light menu of cocktails and seafood inspiration with unparalleled views.

Reservation: Suggested | 7+ Days in Advance

Book online with a $25 - $100/per person deposit

Food to Try: We enjoyed their cocktails + brunch menu but nothing specifically jumps out as a must try unless you're a fan of oysters.

Time Budget: 90 - 120 minutes of dining

Money Budget: $$$ - $30-75+/per person


Next, walk over (1.1 miles, 23 mins) to the Lip Lab By BITE for custom made lipsticks. You'll work with a professional to create a shade that's exactly what you want, choose a finish, add a flavor and have it engraved all during your appointment. It's such a fun way to bond with your girl friends and compliment each other as you try to find the perfect lip shade.

Reservation: Required | 2+ weeks in advance for weekends recommended

Time Budget: 30 minutes per person in your group (3 people ~ 90 minutes)

Money Budget: $$ - $60 per custom lipstick


After finishing up with your new lipsticks in hand, spend some unstructured time walking + shopping around Soho - one of Manhattan's best shopping neighborhoods - before heading to your next reservation at Olfactory.


Located right between Soho and Nolita (.5 mile, 10 minute walk from Lip Lab), Olfactory NYC is a perfumery with make your own perfume sessions. You'll work with

an expert to explore different scent bases, mix the scents of your choosing and walk out with your own new signature scent in hand. It's such a blast to see which scents each of your friends are drawn to and which blend each person ends up choosing.

Reservation: Not Required, but Recommended | 1+ weeks in advance for weekends

Time Budget: 60-90 minutes per person in your group

Money Budget: $85 per custom perfume


By now, you've all probably worked up an appetite again which makes it the perfect time to stop at La Pecora Bianca SoHo (.2 miles, 3 min walk) for dinner. The restaurant vibes are immaculate and on warm days they open up the entire restaurant windows to create an open air atmosphere that's to die for.

Reservation: Not Required, but Recommended | 7+ Days in Advance

Food to Try: Whipped Ricotta Toast, Cacio e Pepe Fritters + Homemade Pasta with Burrata

Time Budget: 90 - 120 minutes of dining

Money Budget: $$ - $30-50+/per person


We finished out our Girl's Day with a heart to heart talk while overlooking the starlit water at Brookfield Place before strolling through the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit. Unfortunately, the current exhibit ends next week, but that opens up an entire world of possibilities for how you'll close out your girl's day. Whatever you decide to do, I hope that this itinerary has inspired you to find new ways to spend time with those you love that exceed the ordinary and add disco to all the details of your life.
