Tag Archives: Take Her Word For It


Hey boys, I’m excited to host the “Take Her Word For It” segment on Inside Hook! It’s a Gent’s Guide to Navigating NYC in Style! I’m showing you guys the ins and outs of NYC so you don’t have to. From where to take your first date…to where to shop…and where to get fit! In-the-know gents of NYC, it’s time to take note.

#1. Where to book a table at right this moment?

Chinese Tuxedo:

5 Doyers St.



Perfect if you’re looking for an elevated Chinatown experience. This stunning restaurant is situated on the cutest block: Doyer Street. The best street to explore before you sit down at one of the banquet booths with a good glass of vino to calm your nerves on that first date. Once you walk in, you’ll love its romantic ambience, stunning decor, and super cool scene. It’s certainly a trendy place to impress your dates…with a delicious new twist on classic Chinese dishes. I whipped out my favorite dress, inspired by the cheongsam. Time to book that reservation asap.

#3: Where to get kitted out?

The Space in Brooklyn:

99 Scott Ave.


The Space is both a workshop and by-appointment showroom of Helio Ascari, maker of super handsome Ascari Bicycles and Max Poglia, a metal and leather smith. These two Brazilian gents have mastered cool and unique swoon-worthy men’s style. Of course, they’re super handy when it comes to making exquisite and detail oriented products. The Space carries a variety of bohemian, vintage inspired men’s clothing, shoes, and accessories that will get you looking dapper in no time. We’re talking everything from faded denim blazers to the latest most coveted man bag to snag for the office. It’s the best place to find some cool, new designer labels. Oh, and you can always take a seat at their barber’s chair should you need that last minute trim.

#3: Where to get your sweat on?

Gotham Gym:

43 Crosby St.



Gotham Gym feels intimate…and of course, it’s super badass. It’s small with no crowds, no lines, and no nonsense. They’ll whip you into shape by focusing on cardio, intense pad work in the ring, and full body conditioning. Trust me, girls like guys who box. Just don’t go creeping on gals or trying to impress them with your bench presses. Stay cool and avoid the pitfalls mentioned above. You’ll be sweating like a star in no time.
