  • When Mad Men creator Matt Weinert is brought in to interpret one of Carl Jungs paintings than you know it's a cool place.
  • At the "Count Your Blessings" exhibit (opening Aug 2), you will find some of the strangest Tibetan prayer beads. One is made from the vertebrae of a snake. Another set is from a human skull.
  • Need plans for a Friday night? Free Fridays from 6-10 p.m. at Rubin Museum of Art is a great place to hang with friends! Check out MetroFocus for other museum deals throughout the city.
  • Full bar (K2 lounge). And movies are free some nights if you get $7 in drinks, but get there a little ahead of time as it fills up fast.
  • Come on a Friday night for a cocktail and some culture. This spacious museum boasts a prayer inducing collection of art from the Himalayas.
  • One of the sexiest places in Gotham baby! The art is dedicated dedicated to the art of the Himalayas & surrounding regions. Every Friday night it's free, there's a even a DJ. Great for a date!
  • Acoustic jazz concerts can be enjoyed on Friday nights here in a room that has the best acoustics in NYC. Add this place to your to-do list and check out our other local jazz picks on MetroFocus.
  • The Tibetan Prayer room on floor 2 is the coolest installation ever!!
  • Wed evening happy hour from 5-7pm. Great to start your evening there. Not your typical bar ambience in a good way.
  • Friday openings draw a swanky high art crowd; as long as you don't need silence to appreciate a painting you get the best of both worlds: an interesting crowd and interesting exhibits.
  • Free with an NYU Card? Sweet!
  • It's not kid friendly and the food is okay, good for senior citizens
  • NYC's tastiest museum.
  • Free Friday night admission 6-10pm, 2 for 1 happy hr 6-7pm!
  • Get a coffee and something to eat elsewhere because the wait for either is ridiculous and nobody cares when you ask where your order is. Half empty and the staff are totally unable to cope
  • The BEST giftshop. Ever.
  • Great jazz series on Friday evenings - enjoy the cafe before or after the concert!
  • I loved the museum...and at the shop u can find some unique things
  • The stairs are cool.
  • The cafe here is a great hidden gem for lunch. The rice bowls are delicious and under $10.
