View Full Version : Good NYC First Date Venues

I used to have the best first date spot but they renovated it last year and completely ruined the vibe of the place. I tried a ton of places before I found that one and came up with several priorities.

Seating next to or better yet, perpendicular to your date. It's so hard to get comfortable with someone with a table (even a small one) in between you and your date. Perpendicular is the best because you don't have to sit awkwardly to maintain eye contact and it makes getting physical very natural.

Semi-private seating. Kissing at a bar can be kind of lame but with your own secluded booth or area you have the privacy to go for it without your date being uncomfortable.

Quiet. Being able to hear each other is very important so the hottest new spot isn't a good idea. You don't want it to be dead because then the whole staff has eyes on you so you want a few other patrons to be there.

Does anyone know any venues that meet these requirements? I'm really amazed by how much my success ratio has been effected by not having these attributes. The two I found that are close are.
