Whether you're here to party, marry, or hang with your new husband, the city that never sleeps has something for everyone. Here's where to sleep, eat and what to do in the Big Apple for your bachelorette party, wedding or honeymoon.

The Bachelorette Party
Stay: Wythe Hotel
Check out Brooklyn by checking in to this buzzy hotel by Williamsburg's waterfront. Hit the hood's hot spots, all in walking distance, then head back to the see-and-be-seen rooftop bar in time to score a table.

Eat: Gallow Green
Hit the all-you-can-nosh brunch at this restaurant atop Chelsea's McKittrick Hotel (home to popular Macbeth offshoot Sleep No More) and chill to live jazz while throwing back Bellinis and cold fried chicken with honey sauce.

Do: No. 8
Strap on the stilettos and buckle up for a bacchanalian dance party among the Beautiful People. (Jourdan Dunn's a fan.) The ballroom provides the glamour; the rec room has a laid-back boho vibe.

The Wedding
Stay: Viceroy New York
Steer out-of-town guests to this sleek hotel with a primo Midtown location and roof bar overlooking Central Park. Bonus: Every room comes with a free Uber ride. (A safe trip home for all!) Doubles from $264;

Eat: Dirty French
Have your rehearsal dinner at this happening Lower East Side restaurant at the Ludlow Hotel and you'll impress guests with tasty global twists on French bistro fare and inventive cocktails. (Chai bourbon, anyone?)

Do: Ellis Island
For iconic I do's, wed with a view of the skyline, then party in the grand Immigration Museum. Or score points with your hipster friends by saying your vows at Brooklyn's industrial-chic Green Building or SoHo's cozy-cool Housing Works bookstore.

The Honeymoon
Stay: The Towers at the New York Palace
Spend your newlywed nights at this hotel within a hotel featuring private elevators, an attendant to unpack your things, and chauffeur service in a Maybach. Baller. Doubles from $495;

Eat: Il Buco
Descend into the cavelike wine cellar of celebrated Italian eatery Il Buco for killer vino and sexy Mediterranean dishes that change daily. For dessert? A romantic stroll down the cobblestones of Bond Street, hand in hand.

Do: Queen of the Night
This decadent interactive dinner-theater show at the Paramount Hotel is so hot, Cara Delevingne and St. Vincent were seen slow dancing together at a performance.
