Choosing the ideal date night bar spot in New York City is a delicate balance. You want to choose a place that’s casual enough to feel low pressure but still stylish and current. It’s also a good idea to select a venue with a high-quality food and drink menu and maybe even some in-house entertainment. Enter The Bridges, an ideal blend of gastro pub, speakeasy, and billiards hall, located conveniently on the edge of the Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO.
The Bridges is the perfect Brooklyn date night spot because the entire bar is gleaming with polished natural wood bars, exposed brick and beadboard, and just enough lighting for a nightlife vibe. The pub is divided into different sections; the upstairs has a traditional bar and billiard hall feel, and the downstairs event space feels like a swanky lounge. This means you can feel out how the evening is going and play it by ear.
If you want to keep your date friendly and casual, belly up to the bar, indulge in some draft beer, and dive into some sliders and tacos for dinner. Finish off your night with another round of drinks and a few games of pool. Do you feel like kicking things up a notch? Ask to be seated in the event area and take in a live burlesque show while you share a couple bottles of wine and enjoy some gourmet deviled eggs, fresh mussels, panko fried calamari, and creole shrimp and grits.
The beauty of The Bridges is you can go where the evening takes you, and that’s what New York City is all about. Don’t box yourself in; keep your next date open, exciting, and full of possibilities.
