Sean’s Favorites

My intention with Location Rebel is to be as approachable as possible.

One of the things I pride myself on the most, is that if you meet me in person, I’d hope that I am exactly who you expect me to be.

Same personality, same sarcasm, same goal of being as genuine as possible.

And I believe one of the best ways to get to know someone are to know some of the specifics about what they like – after all, it just takes one shared interest to help grow that relationship.

So on this page, you’re going to find a list of all of my favorite things. The majority of these have absolutely nothing, to do with business. But it’s my site, and whether you’re trying to find the best bar in the world, or you simply want a good book to read – you’ll find my recommendations here.

On my quest to hit the top 50 bars in the world, so far the best drinks? The Elephant Bar at the Nomad Hotel in NYC. Hence the reason it’s 4pm and I’m debating my third cocktail. So good.
