Picture this - A night on the town with all your closest friends, dressed to the nines but unable to get into the most exclusive bars in the city. Sound like fun? Didn’t think so. Ori Mor feels the same. That’s why he founded Take Me Out, a NYC nightlife tour company that takes guests to the hottest spots around the city, handling everything from limousine transportation to reservations at each stop.
While it may be a nightlife tour, Take Me Out is aimed at everyone, not just tourists. The company prides itself on providing an alternative way to explore the city’s nightlife that won’t have you waiting in line outside for hours. Whether you are a New Yorker wanting to take the headache out of planning a night out, or just visiting the city and overwhelmed by the endless nightlife options, Take Me Out has got you covered!
“Take Me Out is a great way for everyone to experience New York City and we are actually one of the only night life tours in the city, said Mor “What makes us stand out is that we take our guests to exclusive places. These are places you can’t get in without a reservation. It definitely has a VIP feel.”
One of the Take Me Out’s tours includes the popular Mixology tour. This particular tour includes two charted limos, guides who whip up great drinks for tour-goers along the way, and stops at some of the city’s trendiest bars. If you’re the type who is looking for something a little different, try the company’s most popular tour, the Prohibition Tour. This tour transports you back to the 1920’s and takes you to secret bars and hidden speakeasies throughout the city, some of which feature burlesque and jazz shows during the week. Along the way, sip champagne, enjoy the limo ride, and learn about the era as you visit each stop.
Other tours on the company’s roster include their nightclub tour for those who love to dance, and a singles social tour. No need to worry about finding a date, as the company sets everything up! With over 300 tours in the last six months, tourists and New Yorkers alike have found that Take Me Out connects them to real, local experiences with ease.
“The goal with launching this company is that I wanted to create something that guests could enjoy and that stood out from the typical nightlife experience in the city,” continued Mor. “Everyone enjoys the tours, both locals and tourists. They are also perfect for events like birthday parties, and with wedding season right around the corner, it’s the perfect idea for a bachelor or bachelorette party!”
Take Me Out Tours currently offers five existing tours on their roster, but also offers custom events. Attendees can expect on average three stops per tour and each starts from $100-$150 per person. Tours run most nights of the week, starting as early as 5pm, with most starting around 9pm.
