The city has many more places to offer lovers, but these special places make for a perfect date that the both of you will remember.
1. Le Boudoir, Brooklyn
Cocktails are the perfect way to celebrate your couplehood and also the ultimate drinks for first dates. Besides the fact the Le Boudoir serves cocktails that are no less than perfect, it also offers a unique wining and dining experience. The cocktail bar is built underground and to get to it, you and your date will need to open a hidden door that will lead you to the beautiful room designed after Marie Antoinette’s chambers. You can't get a better ambiance for a sexy date with your other half, or other half in the making.
2. Old City Hall subway station - The downtown 6 train from Brooklyn Bridge
Alcohol isn’t everyone's first choice for a date, so if you're looking for a truly romantic spot, don't go further than the downtown 6 train from Brooklyn Bridge. Unlike other subway stations, the downtown 6 train from Brooklyn Bridge has no trains that going through it. The beautiful spot hasn't been in service since 1945, and it offers a fascinating look into New York's past charm. The station is adorned with tiled ceilings, large skylights, brass chandeliers and other surprises that will make you fall in love with this romantic spot.
