Cupcakes and wine...do I need to say more. This spot serves imported beers and wines with artisan cupcakes serving up a savory menu later in the evening. The Obamas first date was going out for ice cream, so dessert dates can be sweet on so many levels. Take someone here to seduce them with dessert and win their heart.

One of the sexiest places in Gotham baby! The art is dedicated to the art of the Himalayas and surrounding regions. Every Friday night it's free, there's even a DJ, making it one of the best date spots in NYC. There is a cafť on the first floor that always has delightful smells of spice or vanilla floating through the air. Grab a drink or cup of tea and sit at one of the table to enjoy the beats.
Hudson Bar, 356 58th St. between 8th & 9th Ave., New York, NY
This hotel bar is an awesome spot to go to grab a small plate, relax or have a sexyrendezvous! There is no hassle to simply stroll into the hotel and enjoy this spot.

The Gutter, 200 N 14th St. at Berry Street, Brooklyn, NYC
This place is delightful, it's a dive meets bowling. It couldn't be more fun. You can bring your own food or have something delivered, but get your beer and wine at the friendly bar. The prices are right and it is a laid back environment. It is a great spot for couples who want to do something fun without a lot of hassle. However it is also great for single people, because it is easy to chat it up with other people who are also bowling since it is an intimate place.
