Subzero temps and sub-resolved resolutions aside, January’s been the gator’s ade — to wit, secret drinking clubs, custom suits in NoLita, and the most intimate Valentine’s Day gift idea ever. Here’s our best of:

Bower Hill SocietyBower Hill Society
BHS is a club of deliberate imbibers who bring like-minded folks together for “rare, unique and local spirits” in a massive, loft-style DUMBO office with postcard views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Check it out



Oliphaunt’s a clandestine art consortium offering quarterly “object subscriptions” – basically, mystery art delivered to your door. Like this 18k gold pendant encapsulated by a pyramid of New York rooftop honey. Check it out


White ChalkWhite Chalk
The first in our “Made By Hand” series, this gleaming NoLita atelier crafs bespoke suits with extra personality. Like, say, “a 1920s houndstooth meets David Bowie” number with silver buttons. Check it out


Pudding PadPudding Pad
A sleekly Scandinavian lakeside cottage in Putnam Valley, owned by the proprietor of a Fort Greene coffee shop and formerly occupied by famed jewelry designer David Yurman. The ideal winter weekend getaway. Check it out


Personalized Sex ToyA Unique Valentine’s Day Gift
What to get the woman who has everything for Valentine’s Day? Well, there’s always a trip to Paris. Or you could, you know, enjoin a cabal of tech goofballs to make, yes, a personalized sex toy out of your manhood.  Check it out
