First-date ideas

Need some inspiration to make a good impression? Here are 17 favorite first dates, suggested by TONYsingles. By: Linnea Covington


Shiralee's favorite first date: “I’m a big Francophile, so the Bourgeois Pig (111 E 7th St between First Ave and Ave A; 212-475-2246, is perfect. I love the bordello decor and dark lighting combined with wine and fondue.”

Melissa's favorite first date: “I love Julius bar (159 W 10th St at Waverly Pl; 212-243-1928, because it’s laid-back with reasonable drink prices and a food counter to get a bite to eat. It’s a good spot to get to know a date, since there are plenty of places to talk.”

Paola's favorite first date: “When the weather is right, Prospect Park (Prospect Park West to Flatbush Ave between Prospect Park Southwest and Ocean Ave, Prospect Park, Brooklyn;, or any city park with plenty of trees and space. Isn’t that every city dweller’s favorite date spot?”

Ava's favorite first date: “It’s a tie between the Gutter (200 North 14th St between Berry St and Wythe Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-387-3585, and any nonpacked bar with the game Big Buck Hunter.

Lauren F.'s favorite first date: “I like to go to Mulberry Project (149 Mulberry St between Grand and Hester Sts; 646-448-4536,, because it’s the perfect mesh of tasty cocktails and an intimate setting."
