Meet friends for a cocktail, indulge yourself at one of the city's best Italian restaurants, and then head to one of these great events in Nolita and Little Italy. And don't miss September's two-week blowout for all things Italian during the Feast of San Gennaro.

  • Restaurants
  • Nolita

Treat yourself to dinner and some dance theater at Socarrat Paella Bar’s Nolita location that'll be holding weekly Flamenco Nights every Tuesday. While you're feasting on traditional Spanish dishes like croquetas, sizzling gambas al ajillo, the classic tortilla espanola, and any of the restaurant’s signature paellas, you can be transported to Spain with live flamenco performances by dancers and guitarists. There are three sets of 30-minute performances at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30pm every Tuesday. Reservations can be made on Opentable or by calling the restaurant at 212-219-0101.
