The Act+Acre
Guide to NYC

Act+Acre Team

Our roots may be in Ireland, but our very essence is alive and well in the streets of New York. From our home office in Tribeca, to the many inspiring creatives that paint the city with color, to the character of each borough, this city acts as Act+Acre’s muse. And now that it’s summer and the world’s a  bit more open, we’re honored  to share the goodness that is NYC. And if you decide to swing by the Act+Acre  store on the Lower East Side , we’ll treat you extra nice. 


Eat


  • Emma's Torch —great food, with great impact. This restaurant provides culinary training to refugees while guiding them to find careers in the food industry.
  • Eatwith—Immersive dining experiences...at a strangers house. Diversity your palate as you taste your way through the city with homemade cooking and undeniable hospitality.
  • Jajaja—a team favorite, without a doubt. We love their playful menu, enticing ambience, and cocktails. And the churritos. The churritos!!
  • Pilot— “a seasonal oyster bar aboard one of America's most prized wooden schooners.” Say no more. We’re there.

  • Collective Retreats—set in Governors Island, find sanctuary in this unique escape just a 8-minute boat taxi ride away from downtown Manhattan.

Play 


  • Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farms—Dig your hands into the dirt, pick up a CSA box, learn about urban beekeeping, or connect with the natural cycles of being...all with an unbeatable view of the city. Part-urban farm, part-event space, and as the world’s leader in soil rooftop farming (cool), Brooklyn Grange is iconic and well worth the visit.

A journey, more than anything, Aire is where we go to unwind and relish in ancient bathing rituals. If only we were allowed to take our Restore Collection inside (hint, hint Aire).
