Okay, so you swipe right on tinder now what? Say the person isnít from here and wants a worth while experience. New York City has endless options for going on dates. Forget about a dinner and a movie, leave that for people in small towns. Make it a date they will remember. Dates should be fun. So, why not do something different?
Laughing in midtown west
Magnet Theater in Manhattan is an improv comedy theater and school. Itís a nice small, intimate theater. They have drop-in improv classes on Saturdays for just $10. Improv is acting made up as you go and is usually comical. Therefore, itís a playful, fun, and unique idea of a date. You might be nervous at first, but itís a fun way to break the ice. Also, you get a sense of your dateís personality. After improv, you can take a walk to Bryant Park. There are always different activities happening in Bryant Park. Even if there isnít anything going on that day, itís a great chance for good conversation.
Culture in Alphabet City
Nuyorican Poets Cafe is the go-to place for poetry, music, or theater. Itís a relaxed intimate place filled with inspiration. The crowd and the talent are diversified. I love how they have different types of performance arts going on. You can go there to listen to poetry, open mic, jazz, or see a theatrical performance. However, they donít sell food but you can order a soda, beer, wine, coffee, and bottled water at the bar. The atmosphere is great and it offers you an incredible night. No matter what night you go on, you wonít regret it. If you are hungry after you can head to Cafe Cortadito. itís a Cuban restaurant on the same block. Good food, great sangria, and a nice atmosphere. It ís like a little piece of Cuba in the middle of the city.
An energetic night
If you are more in the mood to party, then Johnny Utahís is the place. Johnny Utahís is a bar, but not just any regular bar. It has a mechanical bull which makes for a fun night. The vibe reminds me of the movie coyote ugly. They let women dance on the bar and pour shots in peopleís mouths. one plus is that they sell food, not just appetizers. Also, the drinks are good and inexpensive. It makes a good alternative to going to a club.
Another option is a rooftop lounge called, The Delancey. It has good drinks and a good atmosphere. The music is also good. So, if youíre in the mood to dance, itís a good choice. I love the vibe of the garden rooftop. There is also live music in the downstairs lounge you can check out. There 3 levels, so you have options. Itís a great way to end a date.
