Ballin’ On A Budget In NYC

AUGUST 8, 2019

New York City is synonymous with glitz and glamor. But you don’t have to break the bank to visit NYC and have a ton of fun. We locals know how to have a great time in this place we call home and still manage to pay our rent, so let us show you how to make incredible memories all while ballin’ on a budget.


Broadway Shows
Sure, Broadway tickets can be pricey, but our team knows how to save you money. Did you know there are plenty of shows with tickets under $50 per person for travelers and groups?

You don’t have to worry about being “too proud to beg” to see 2019 Tony®-winning Ain’t Too Proud or fret that you’ll miss out on Come From Away. Looking for a Broadway experience that has stood the test of time? Both Chicago and The Phantom of the Opera have affordable group tickets too!

Jersey Boys, Bat Out of Hell and The Sound Inside also have great ticket prices for groups. Visiting during the winter holidays? The Magic Flute, a beloved holiday tradition, returns to the Metropolitan Opera and is the perfect choice for families looking to indulge in holiday cheer—and still have money left over for presents.


Workshops
If you really want your group to get the most out of seeing a Broadway show, then treat them to one of our workshops or behind-the-scenes tours. Taught by Broadway professionals, our workshops and master classes are a great way to enrich the theatrical experience.

They’re perfect for students of all ages, social groups, and corporate team-building—plus workshops can be tailored to fit the needs of any group. You might think something like this would cost a pretty penny, but you’d be mistake. A bunch of workshops start at just $25 per person.


Food
Our city is home to a ton of Michelin-rated restaurants for bankers with expense accounts, but you don’t have to shell out big bucks for a full (and happy) stomach. We’ve got spots for pizza, tacos, dumplings, sandwiches, and noodles for $5 or less.

Traveling with a group and everyone wants something different? Take the subway to Columbus Circle and stay underground. Seriously. You’ll find the Turnstyle Underground Market, which hosts a plethora of different cuisines at reasonable prices. We’re big fans of Chick’n Cone and Bolivian Llama Party, but we promise there’s something for everyone there.


Those are just a few of our tips for having a fabulous time in New York City without blowing your savings account. Be sure to get your tickets to any of the shows we mentioned above by clicking on their show page, and if you have any great spots you like to frequent around town that are equally affordable, share it with us on Twitter or Facebook!
