NYC Singles Overview

Aria - Wine Bar in NYC

Entering any singles scene can be daunting, but the New York singles scene requires a degree of patience all its own. With thousands of people moving into the city from all over the world meeting Mr. or Mrs. Right or even Mr. or Mrs. Right Now can be a complex experience, but can also result in memories to last a lifetime if you know where to look.

The Lower East Side and East Village is packed full of young professionals and college students, making these neighborhoods meat markets for anyone looking to meet singles. Bars like Gallery Bar catering to hip twenty-somethings provide the right mix of music and booze conducive to tangling with new people in a place busy enough to mix and mingle, but quiet enough to have a conversation. During the summer, the Standard Biergarten hosts an array of New York's stylish in-the-know singles catching drinks at the communal tables or bonding over a game of ping pong. Not to mention if things are going well you also have the Standard Grill for dinner, or the Standard Hotel located over the bar. Enough said.

On the weekend mornings, people flock to brunch bars to recap last night’s adventures or start the day off with an alcoholic adventure. Boozy brunches like Bagatelle’s infamous party provide the perfect opportunity to offer that attractive stranger across the room a glass of champagne and ask them to dance all before the sun even sets. The Frying Pan in Chelsea is the perfect low key place to drink off your hangover and chat up other Sunday Funday revelers looking for a last minute weekend memory of a hot someone to get them through the week.
