We’ve hand-picked some of the city’s hippest, happening and highly desirable hangouts below so you can mingle with like-minded people in NYC. And you never know, you might just meet that very special someone to light up your life.
Whether you’re looking to dine out, dance, enjoy some drinks or celebrate at a big bash, we’ve got all the details you’ll need below.
Kitty’s Canteen on the Lower East Side
Jazz and Jewish soul food is not your everyday combination but Kitty’s Canteen does both beautifully. Kitty’s is small but perfectly formed and if you can get a seat at the bar here any night between Tuesday and Saturday, your senses are in for a real treat.
If you don’t find the partner of your dreams at Kitty’s Canteen, you can console yourself with the loveliness of the venue itself which will leave your heart glad. And when you make your way out (possibly as late as 4 a.m.) you’ll be hooked and desperate to return.
If you’re lucky enough to be invited to an event at Capitale, you can look forward to an evening of luxurious quality. It’s a NYC mainstay for weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, extravagant birthday celebrations or any other big get-togethers, this is the place to meet other young Jewish professionals in the city who’ve been invited along too.
You’ll find Capitale at 130 Bowery and an evening of decadence and sophistication awaits you.
Sammy’s Roumanian Steakhouse
Sammy’s has been attracting hungry Jewish families, couples and singles for more years than we care to remember. Its main draw is the traditional Eastern European cooking which will bring back memories of your Mom’s favourite recipes.
It’s often said that music is the food of love and at Sammy’s there’s always some fantastic entertainment going on.
Imagine yourself out on the rooftop on a hot New York summer’s evening with a cold drink, great band and lots of other singles. JCC Manhattan plays host to regular gigs and provides an intimate and relaxing atmosphere to socialize in.
The oldest deli in NYC has been serving customers here since way back in 1888. While you certainly won’t meet a partner here who’s that old, striking up a conversation over breakfast could be a good way to form a new relationship.
This famous venue is always busy, thanks in part to its big screen role in When Harry Met Sally. Maybe you’ll meet someone special here and get to write your own script.
There are few better cities in the world to go dating in than New York. So head out to any of the places above and enjoy yourself.
