3 Reasons Why a Seafood Happy Hour Is an Excellent Date Idea, Manhattan, New York

Planning a date is tough, especially if your relationship is new. Trying to juggle each other’s interests while still finding a way to have a fun time together takes a lot of work. Heading to a seafood happy hour, however, is an excellent way to create a fun date experience. No matter where you are in the relationship, you’ll both enjoy your time trying new foods and tasty beverages at a happy hour.

Why Seafood Happy Hours Make Fun Dates

1. Casual & Fun Setting

If you or your partner are nervous by nature, a seafood restaurant offers a casual dining experience that takes the pressure off you both. Since most seafood restaurants don’t have a fancy dress code, you and your date can feel comfortable in your usual attire, which can boost your confidence and allow the conversation to flow. In this casual setting, you’ll both get a chance to learn more about each other without feeling confined by restrictive formalities.

2. New Food Experience

Whether you start the date off with a familiar appetizer such as chips and salsa or head for uncharted territory with something like Belizean conch fritters, there are plenty of dishes you can try together. Additionally, you can order appetizers to share throughout the night and explore the menu.

3. Unique Cocktails

Pairing delicious seafood with a refreshing beverage creates a tasty date experience. You and your date can try some new beverages such as tangy mixes, different punches, or a new selection of wine and beer. If either of you is well-versed in cocktails, you can discuss them in detail and continue to try different drinks throughout the date.
