Hell's Kitchen, New York.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Once a blue-collar, Irish-American neighborhood and underworld enclave, Hell’s Kitchen is now a flourishing residential area filled with artists, actors, and creative young New York professionals.

During the day, hipsters and alternative types stroll past the poster-plastered brick walls of Ninth Avenue on their way to grab a bite to eat at the funky and affordable Greek and Mediterranean restaurants, then return at night to join the well-dressed patrons from the Time Warner Center and Columbus Circle shops as they stream into the laid-back dive bars and small eateries to unwind.

Plenty of cozy bars and warm lounges offer young couples a place for some light drinking in a relaxed atmosphere, while tourists tend to flock to the vicinity to catch live tapings of The Daily Show or 106th & Park.

Despite its name, Hell’s Kitchen is by no means the wildest neighborhood in town, but it is packed with hidden dining dens and unspoiled nightspots perfect for a low-key evening.
