Maryjane’s at the Hard Rock

If you’re hip, you’re up late, and you’re looking to munch, you’re going to walk across the street from virtually any bar you might be at downtown and head into the futuristic coffee shop in the Hard Rock Hotel, Maryjane’s. Open until 3am and serving up sticky buns, burgers, and salads, you not only want to eat at Maryjane’s, you want to be seen eating at Maryjane’s. The Hard Rock is always the coolest place to go, even after everyone else has gone home.


BASIC Urban Kitchen is so good! Located in the east village downtown in a 1912-warehouse-turned-diner BASIC offers up tasty grub until 2am nightly. You can order up a thin crust brick oven pizza at 1:30 am and swallow down your beer before all the cabs leave downtown. A great place to hang out that keeps their delicious kitchen open until last call, BASIC is a staple on our list.
