Last chance: The best things to do in NYC that close in June

Written by
Jennifer Picht

If there's one thing we hate, it's missing out on all the cool events and shows that roll through NYC. We also hate losing some of our favorite restaurants and bars before we’ve had the chance to give them a proper goodbye (a.k.a. sob into our plate of food or glass of beer). 

To avoid a serious case of FOMO from happening to you, we asked our editors and critics to share the previously ongoing events and performances that are coming to an end this month, including some beloved restaurant closings. There’s still time to check out the below, so don't waste another minute!


Ends June 17: Travesties
Watching Tom Stoppard’s devilishly clever Travesties is rather like solving a puzzle of the cryptic British crossword variety, whose intersecting clues are witty little games in and of themselves.

Ends June 24: Three Tall Women
Glenda Jackson gives a towering performance in the exquisite new revival of Edward Albee’s brutally truthful 1991 drama, Three Tall Women.


Ends June 27: The Voidz Residency at Elsewhere
Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas plays with his other band, the Voidz, a group's that released two albums of unabashedly weird indie-rock. The crew settles in for a monthlong weekly residency at Elsewhere, with opening sets by rising indie bands including Surfbort, Dilly Dally and Priests.


Closes June 13: Má Pêche
Fans of the David Chang restaurant located inside the Chambers Hotel should cancel their current dinner plans and opt to break bread at this restaurant which, sadly, closes tonight (June 13).

Closes June 23: Caffe Vivaldi 
This magical 32-year-old eatery shuts its doors on June 23, so make sure to check out the spot's live music offerings and savor menu items like pizza and bruschetta before then. 

Closes June 30: Mas (farmhouse)
James Beard Award–winning chef-owner Galen Zamarra is closing his Downing Street gem. At least you have until the end of the month to dine at the homey, French eatery!
