The Most Romantic Date Spots In NYC

15 of the most romantic spots for a date night in the city.

Published August 01, 2021

While New York may not be the city of love (@Paris.Bucketlist is the account for that), New York is a magical place to explore with someone you love – or someone you like enough to swipe right on. I mean there’s a reason New York sets the scene for so many iconic romcoms (When Harry Met Sally, we’re looking at you 👀). Whether it’s your first date and you’re looking to impress or it’s your 100th and you’re happy to just leave the house, look no further than below for 15 romantic ways to elevate your date night.

AIRE Ancient Bath

If you’ve been stuck in a small studio apartment for almost 11 months with your SO, there’s nothing you two deserve more than some rest and relaxation. While there are plenty of places to get a massage in the city, there is only one where you can experience a massage, an ancient thermal bath and a Himalayan salt ritual – all in a day’s work. AIRE Ancient Baths, hidden in the heart of TriBeCa, offers a tranquil repose from city life with Roman, Greek & Ottoman traditions of different temperature baths.

Sola Pasta Bar

Escape to Capri under Sola Pasta Bar’s golden rose adorned canopies. Golden-hued roses and twinkling tea lights set the scene at this romantic SoHo locale. During the colder months, their private cottages are equipped with hanging heat lamps, floral displays, fur blankets and mouth-watering pasta dishes, including stuffed gnocchi, squid ink pasta with 24K gold leaf, black truffle tagliatelle and more. *Drools in Italian*
