“…When you tell a Brit there’s a rooftop pool with a cocktail bar attached to it…you can guarantee attendance …”
Locate me: The Ivy is tucked down the alley of 330 George Street,
2 minutes from Martin Place Station.
Arrive before 10 and avoid the $20 charge
You can choose between two entrances. Which ever one you choose, you’re going to be blown away.
Leads you to the Main Bar. The space is huge and caters to any manner of taste:
The big sofa’s to chill out on
The dance floor
The outside/inside courts
Eat some Thai or simply take a seat on one of the balconies
You can relax or move in a variety of comforts. Yah, it’s cool, but it’s also very corporate. If you go between 7 and 9 the atmosphere is buzzing. The suits are looking good and the evening has that happy Friday feeling. Past 10 it takes on a club vibe and a different style of dressed attitude to accompany the scene.
I prefer the early hours when the nights just kicking off, whatever your mood or taste – come and have a look. Dress a little nice, too, its that kind of place.
You’re now in the pool.
Need I say more?
More you say? There’s a regular happy hour kicking off at 5-7pm.

While in New York the Sex & the City Tour was top of our list and you should ensure it’s on yours, too! Please don’t let this ridiculously fun trip pass you by when you’re in the city, think dildos and cupcakes – it’s a sure recipe for smiles.
Screen Tours offer this trip at $46 (£29) and from past experience they’re reliable to be on time and guide you through each stop of New York with the excitement and profanity this tour requires.
Highlights include: A cocktail at Steve and Aidan’s bar “Scout”
and a cupcake at Magnolia Bakery aka. Heaven.
We actually ended up booking an evening meal at Buddakan, the restaurant where Big and Carrie have their rehearsal dinner. They serve Asian cuisine on 9th Avenue and it’s a real treat, meaning rather expensive, with an atmosphere for dimly lit romance and seriously delicious dishes. Just by the bar they have square tables and long bench-like seating which makes for a sociable evening.
*If you’re tempted make a reservation while you’re on tour
or pick up a business card from the bar and call later.

One of Paddington’s best memories was visiting Central Park, New York, where he met a very jolly book-worm. To this day they’re good friends and remain dear pen-pals.

- Picnic with friends
Sometimes it’s a big bite situation
One of the many taglines from our trip to New York, just before we inhaled our last breath before devouring the American sized version of bagels – please indulge yourself, too.
* Found in every other diner, along every other street in NY City. Spectacular.
