  • Cellar 58
    Like any good basement, Cellar 58 is full of secrets. Hidden in the back of the East Village eatery is a wine-tasting room that shelters more than 150 different bottles, including some that hail from overlooked countries, such as Greece and Bulgaria. In addition, the wine bar's frequently changing selection features more than 30 wines by the glass. From the Press "Wine enthusiasts eager to explore new territory should take a seat at one of the long marble tables at this mural-adorned East Village wine bar." — Time Out New York "It makes for the ideal venue for lingering over the international wine list comprising the world's major, minor and up-and-coming varietals, vineyards and vintages." — Gayot "The pours come from all corners of the world, and not just the currently budget-friendly Chile and New Zealand- Greece, Austria, and Bulgaria all make an appearance." — New York magazine Beyond the Wine List There is also a surprising treasure in the front dining room. The marble-topped tables play host to entrees and small plates prepared by chef Fabio Bano, who comes to Cellar 58 from the ultraprivate Soho House. Using cooking methods that he learned and perfected in Italy, Bano handcrafts pastas and inventive desserts, which, like top-secret memos, melt satisfyingly upon entering the mouth.

  • Capoeira Nago Academy
    At the age of 14, Contra Mestre Andre was introduced to the sport of capoeira—the ancient Brazilian martial-art form—in his homeland of Brazil. After traveling to the states, Andre began showcasing capoeira's explosive kicks and effortless backflips for Sony, Red Bull, and Fashion Institute of Technology events. Andre also gained experience as an Equinox trainer, obtained a black belt in jujitsu, and was a mixed-martial-arts fighter in the 2008 Ultimate Fighting Championship. Now, Andre’s career has come full circle as he shares his love for capoeira in Nago Academy’s spacious studio. He and his team of supportive trainers help students meet diverse fitness goals by offering five different types of classes, including cardio kickboxing and fitness. Zumba sessions fuse upbeat tunes with Latin dance moves for a sweat-inducing cardio workout, whereas a Zone Fitness class kicks choreography up a notch by adding kettlebells with resistance training. During capoeira sessions, two people in the center of a circle pantomime the movements of one-on-one combat by exchanging rhythmic kicks, full-powered spins, and up-to-date insurance information.

  • Bhagavat Life
    Located in the East Village, Bhagavat Life thrusts its doors open to welcome passersby pursuing healthy living through vegetarian dining and the ancient Ayurvedic holistic healing tradition. An Indian form of alternative medicine, Ayurveda is the practice of balancing five physical elements––earth, water, fire, air, and sky––to fuel the body and nurture a long, healthy life. Onsite chefs implement the nutritional and bio-energetic value of pure ingredients into their culinary and food-fight skills, delivering prepared wellness meals to customers' homes throughout the week. During cooking classes, chefs trained in Ayurvedic dining help newly minted cooks prepare four-course meals with a variety of vegetarian items and raw or gluten- and dairy-free victuals. Adding to the cultural exploration, the center's resident Sanskirt poetry expert, Divya Alter, teaches a Sanskrit chanting workshop, in which she explores the musical, spiritual, and technical aspects of the bhakti texts.

  • Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals
    Spotlighted in Time magazine and the New York Times, Music for Aardvarks and Other Mammals is a nationally renowned program offering a unique take on musical education for children 3 months to 4 years old. Classes consist of 45 minutes of singing, dancing, musical storytelling, and jamming. Children's songsmith David Weinstone designed a curriculum celebrating the urban environment as well as universal concerns of youth via his classes, which have exploded into the national spotlight since their humble beginnings in 1997. Rather than being strict and results-driven, the teaching style at Music for Aardvarks is based on adult modeling and exposing children to ideas and sounds without dumbing them down. Parent participation is strongly encouraged for atonal squealers and former Yes drummers alike. Check the Music for Aardvarks website for the drop-in sessions and 10-class series schedules.

  • DROM NY
    Rather than the colored spotlights that scurry across many a modern dance floor, Drom’s performance space twinkles beneath the glimmer of its massive Turkish chandelier. In its glow, Layla Isis, Mariyah and Sira move to gypsy rhythms, undulating through live performances. During the spinning spectacular, Layla showcases the same fleet-footed prowess that landed her a role in Sex and the City 2 and a spot on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, though by that time, Conan had been successfully replaced with a snowman wearing a clown wig. An artist of the beautiful, she blends traditional belly dancing with her stunning reimagining of the Danse Serpentine—a medium created by Chicago native Loie Fuller and popularized in Paris in the late 19th century—with billowing reams of cloth and striking changes in light. Due to the success of these performances, Drom's dancers have started to teach classes. On Saturday, before the night ramps up, the talented dancers twirl into classrooms to teach their art to curious students.

  • Church Street Boxing Gym
    A right jab to the jaw sends a mist of perspiration across the blue boxing ring before Joe Louis's eyes. His looming visage peers down at sparring athletes from the walls covered in old flyers, magazine cutouts, and posters recalling the sport's storied history at Church Street Boxing Gym. Legends including Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis have trained here, but the staff, which boasts experience in more than 300 combined fights, guides men, women, and children of all skill levels in the combat arts. Instructors lead muay thai, jujitsu, boxing, and wrestling classes, during which they challenge students in old-school and modern workouts. On the wrestling mat, they demonstrate gripping an opponent in a headlock, and those training for boxing or muay thai skip rope and pummel heavy bags until they agree to stop throwing fights. Athletes can attend classes to prepare for serious combat competition or to get in shape with exercises designed to sculpt the whole body.
