Good Night Sonny is a cocktail bar in the East Village, and it’s perfect for when you need a nice place to meet up near St. Mark’s. Bars in that area tend to be divey or touristy, but this one isn’t either. It’s just one long room with plenty of windows, a few little tables, and a big bar to sit at. At night, it gets a little more intimate, and you could definitely get away with bringing a date here. And if you get hungry, you could even eat dinner at Good Night Sonny. They do oysters, sandwiches, and small plates like steak tartare.

The Commodore is bad. Bad because merely looking at the food here will jack up your cholesterol thirty points, and worse because everything is so good that you’ll crave it all the time.
2nd Floor Bar & Essen
2nd Floor Bar & Essen is a semi-hidden bar above 2nd Ave Deli on the Upper East Side. It’s perfect for date night, and the food is great.
Bill's Bar & Burger
We had hoped that instead of conforming to Midtown, Bill’s Bar and Burger would make Midtown conform to it. It did not.

The Spaniard is a big West Village gastropub that’s a fun place to get drinks with a group, and a less enjoyable spot to eat elevated bar food.
Death & Co
Death & Co. feels like it was built just for us. The drink list is ridiculous…it’s nearly impossible to settle on something because each beverage is intriguing and awesome. And thankfully the food doesn’t suck either.
