Few places in the world can rival New York City. While I’m a fan of its booming cultural scene and hipster neighborhoods, it’s the Upper Eastside and the city’s endless amount of luxury opportunities that really seem enticing.

Just like in the movies, indulging in caviar and champagne can be a daily thing when you’re in New York City.

But, living the good life isn’t just for the rich and famous. You see, anyone can indulge in the high life — you just need to be willing to pull out the checkbook.

Indulge in the Golden Opulence Sundae

In this part of New York City, gold isn’t just for jewelry and ice cream isn’t just for kids. You’ll have to fork over a pretty penny for this ice cream sundae though. Coming in at $1,000 a sundae, the Golden Opulence is quite literally bathed in gold — a 23-carat gold leaf drapes the sundae! The chef also pairs the golden leaf with rare Chuao chocolate from Venezuela, caviar, and a few gold-covered almonds (because why not?).  It’s worth every bite, plus you get to keep the Baccarat crystal goblet! 

See NYC by Air with a Private Helicopter Tour

The best part about a private helicopter tour with Manhattan Helicopters is that you have control over every detail. Not only will the pilots and staff help to ensure your tour is perfect in every way, but they’ll also give you some recommendations for iconic sights to see along the way.

Relax at The Plaza Hotel

This French-chateau inspired hotel redefines elegance and vintage charm in a way few other hotels in the city can. Located in the Upper Eastside between 5th Avenue and Central Park, The Plaza offers incredible views of the city from virtually every room. A populr haunt of F. Scott Fitzgerald back in the day, it’s the attention to detail and the subtle modern touches that’ll really impress. From gorgeous art deco accents in The Rose Club to iPads within every room for each guest’s convenience to an Eloise Suite exclusively for the kids, you’ll never want to check out.

Try Nino’s Bellissima Pizza

This isn’t the pizza you ordered in college. Nino’s Bellissima pizza is for those with refined pallets, a love for seafood, and plenty of spare change. Covered in six different types of caviar and sprinkled with fresh Maine Lobster, the Bellissima costs $1,000 (the caviar alone is worth $820!) and tastes like heaven. It doesn’t come by the slice, so if you’re planning to give it a try I recommend you bring some (really close) friends.  

Book a Session with a Private Stylist

It’d be a shame to leave one of the fashion capitals of the world without an appointment with a stylist, right? That’s where Chic Inspiration swopes in to save the day. Customers can opt for a personalist stylist for aday and even a shopping tour of the city so you can find the best discounts, latest trends, and coolest neighborhoods too.

Pop Some Bottles at Flute

Surprisingly, very few bars within New York City still offer full bottle service. Flute, however, acts like bottle service never disappeared. Understated, quiet and classic — it’s a champagne bar set in a building that once called a speakeasy home. If you’re in town at the right time, be sure to look into the Champagne School at the Midtown location so you can taste test champagne and choose your new favorite for your bottle service that evening.

Become a VIP on Broadway

Two things that should be on everybody’s Big Apple bucket list are a Broadway show and seeing Wicked on Broadway. The Millionaire’s Concierge creates an amazing experience with a VIP Broadway showing of one of New York’s longest running shows. From there it’s simple: Decide if you’d rather have a house seat and the full make-up experience or keep it simple with great seats and backstage passes to meet the cast.

Propose with the Diamond is Forever Martini

Hey, fellas, if you’re stumped on proposal ideas, the staff at Uncorked Wine and Tapas in Midtown can help you get a ring and the perfect night in one go.  The Diamond is Forever is a dry martini served with a custom-made ring. The catch? Uncorked prices the drink at $10,000 and asks for 72 hours notice. It’s totally worth it if you’ve found the one.
