It’s finally happened, you’re not eager to join your friends as they hop from the hot happy hour spot to the next. Going off the beaten path here, you’ve got yourself a date. Hell yeah, you heard me, this intern has got a date. Why is this date different from all others you ask? Well, it’s the guy you contemplated swiping right on for like an hour anticipating if there would be any sort of outcome. This happy hour get together, a mixture of fun, casual, cool, and memorable could happen in a number of ways at a number of places. After going on 5 dates in 5 days, here’s what I learned about great places to go and what to expect while taking your tinder out on the town for an evening of fun.
On the first date there’s obviously going to be jitters and nerves about meeting a new person completely. This prime happy hour spot offers craft beer, cocktails, and even espresso in its two side by side dual storefronts. Located under the Queensboro Bridge on East 60th Street, you can either enjoy your Tinder date in the morning with coffee or afternoons seated at the bar in the midst of conversation and good company. This craft beer and cocktail destination offers its guests a diverse menu of over 30 custom beers and local brews served with the most care and precision. Whether you sit inside by the bar or outside in the beer garden, this is a great place to take your Tinder for a great beer and fun time. We ended up having a great time and trying some really funky beer while getting to know each other, and I’d 100% go out with him again.
The Kimberly Hotel
Hotel ChantelleAlright, I say this for any guy who wants to make his Tinderella his girlfriend… GO TO THE ROOFTOP OF HOTEL CHANTELLE. Your pants will be charmed right off by this wooing location. We started our night early by getting there while the sun was still shining and the sangria was still fresh. I was so happy to end my work week sipping a fresh fruity, alcohol-based drink. Honestly I’m not one for PDA, but the ambiance made me feel like I knew this Tinder forever. The night was spent rotating between sangria and rosé with a smile on my face, and later moving to the hotel’s basement dance club where we danced the night away.
After a week of dating various types of men in the New York area, I surprisingly only have four pieces of advice-
Go to a very public place in case you need to escape. However, if that is the case, why did you say yes to the date in the first place? Common sense, people.
Don’t say you have a type of guy that you specifically like; if you can’t commit to one type of chocolate how can you let yourself only like certain types of guys?
Use Tinder, you get to go to so many fun and adventurous places in the city that make for great stories
USE TINDER. Simple as that. It’s a great way to meet people and reconnect with old friends.
