Sex and the City 2 Hotspots


Sex and the City 2 hits theaters on May 27th and like most of the shows fans, I can’t wait to get dressed up, get together with my friends, have a few cocktails and “Carrie on.”

Melanie and I are getting together with a group of friends for dinner and drinks before we head to the theater. After the movie we’ll dance the rest of the night away at a club or lounge. Maybe we’ll end up partying with a group of sailors (they’ll be in town for Fleet Week) like Carrie, Samantha, and Charlotte did in Anchor’s Away.

While we haven’t decided on our restaurant and club locations yet, we got tons of ideas during the Sex and the City Hotspots tour on Sunday.* I’m quite sure we were the only New Yorkers on the bus and while most of the destinations weren’t new to us, they were to the guests who’d traveled from England, Denmark, Germany and Philadelphia. While the tours hotspots may be familiar to New Yorkers, those of you coming to the city from out of town will definitely appreciate seeing the city through the lens of the series.

During the 3.5 hour tour we stopped at places featured on the show including Pleasure Chest, the adult toy store where Charlotte picked up her Rabbit; Onieal’s Speakeasy, the bar used to film the scenes at Scout, Steve and Aidan’s bar; and Buddakan, the restaurant where Carrie and Big’s rehearsal dinner was held, also the scene of Stanford and Anthony’s first kiss. I still can’t believe the two of them got together!

With just a week left until the movie hits the theaters, it’s time to get shopping (I still need to find an outfit), solidify dinner plans, and buy movie tickets. The tickets have been on sale for a few weeks at Fandango and MovieFone so get your tickets before they sell out. You don’t want to be left standing outside the theater in your stilettos!

On Locations Tours is hosting a special Sex and the City Hotspot tour called Midnight Madness on the 26th, with a visit from Willie Garson, who plays the darling Stanford Blatch. You can also visit a few of the Sex and the City hotspots on your own. A few locations that the girls visited during the series and in the movie are listed below. Now go on and “get Carried away.”

  1. Sounds like a great alternative to the typical double decker bus tours that tourists go on, esp. for SATC fans. I can't believe it's 3.5 hours long!

    Totally doesn't feel like 3.5 hours because you get on and off the bus like 4 times!
