Well, fret not, because these 14 NYC bars more than fit the bill for the perfect first date.
If the charm from the U-shape marble bar and dark wood tables at this New Orleans-themed cocktail den don’t add a little fire to your date, the absinthe (there’s an actual fountain of it), oysters, and a beautiful outdoor garden that's straight out of the South should do the trick.
With a population nearly into the eight-figure range, it makes sense than New York harbors a teeming population of single men and women, and yet it seems like everyone you meet is taken.
So where are all of these mythical single New Yorkers hiding?
But that doesn’t mean that all bars make for the perfect first-date bar.
