The Ultimate Local’s Guide to New York City || Gatekeepers

Last stop of the season: The Big Apple with hospitality veteran, Brett David. Whether it’s dropping into a burlesque show, chowing down on some late night food spots (pizza is a must), or even “hitting the links” of some golf simulation, Justin and Brett explore just some of the endless amount of possibilities in the city that never sleeps.

In every city there’s someone who’s connected, who knows where to go on a slow Monday night and can get a table anywhere they want on a Friday – in every city there’s a Gatekeeper. In this Thrillist travel show, we’re sending our host across the country to meet up with these Gatekeepers and experience first hand everything you should make sure to do/eat/drink, one city at a time.
