If you’ve spent any significant time in Soho, you’ve probably passed by an ivy archway on Crosby Street with people (tourists) taking photos of themselves. We can’t endorse the archway, but we can endorse setting up with your laptop and drinking some coffee in their front patio area, which looks a little bit like a theatrical set of a forest. There’s a rule that you can’t bring any alcohol out here, but the inside glass-enclosed area is nice for some wine after work or shopping in the area. We can’t, on the other hand, recommend you order the food (we’ve tried). This is kind of a secret drinks move in Soho, so use it wisely.
