NYC Date Ideas Overview

Nurse Bettie - Bar in NYC

In a city of over eight million jaded New Yorkers it's no surprise that the dating scene can be quite daunting. Having a few tricks up your sleeve for date ideas in New York is always a good plan when trying to woo that special someone.

Sports fans and the girls who date them, would be hard pressed not to enjoy watching their favorite team at female-friendly sports bars where the big game is always playing. At Bounce, commercials are replaced with pop music for a few minutes of dancing between time-outs. Or as Marilyn Monroe once said, "If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything," so laughing and relaxing at West Village staple the Comedy Cellar or similar stand up venues is something both genders can enjoy.

To impress that artsy type, the MET Rooftop in the summer is the perfect place for a stroll through galleries ending with a cocktail on the roof bar overlooking Central park at sunset. Or a romantic walk through Central Park itself, stopping at the lake for a picnic or at Delacorte Theatre for some Shakespeare in the park is bound to win a girl over with classic romance. For taking out one of New York's foodies, drinks at Booker and Dax followed by dinner at momofuku ssäm is sure to impress. Or if all else fails, Cienfuegos in the Lower East Side with its combination of fancy cocktails served in large containers, is perfect for impressing or getting drunk - depending on how your blind date is going!
