the grown and sexy date night
Welcome to the jungle! Undercote is a jungle-inspired cocktail lounge under Cote, the Michelin-starred Korean steakhouse located in Flatiron. With delicious cocktails and snacks, Undercote will blow your mind and taste buds. All of their cocktails are uniquely crafted and look like works of art. Our favorites include the “Illusions” (gin, Cocchi Rosa, apple, lemon, salt, butterfly pea) and “Milkiss” (Bertoux Brandy, almond, saffron, lemon, soda). If you’re feeling something non-alcoholic, don’t worry, they’re got you covered with the “Triumph” (coconut water, green tea, lime, coconut, fever tree club soda) – all options being super Instagrammable ofc.
Their food options are equally delish, with our favorites being the Crispy & Gooey Koren Gnocchi and their Steak Is For Winners tasting dish (dry-aged USDA Prime, American Wagyu, A5 Japanese Wagyu). If you’re looking for a veggie option, their Crudites are super fresh and yummy. Their speakeasy bar is gorgeous and their lush decor sets a vibrant and lively ambience. This spot is perfect for a sexy date night.

the newly reopened classic w great cocktails
Temple Bar is a chic and sexy cocktail bar located on Lafayette St in NoHo. This gorgeous spot was the “it” bar in the 1990s, with retro vibes and delicious martinis, but unfortunately closed in 2017. It was brought back to life recently, and we’re so glad! We love the plush and old‑fashioned decor, and the dim lighting def gives it a sultry and elevated ambiance. The drinks here are to die for! They have an extensive cocktail list, with their martinis being the star of the show, but they also have excellent wine, beer, and non‑alcoholic options to choose from. Our fav has to be their “Dirty Vodka Martini” which never goes wrong, but their “Blue Negroni” (gin, blue kampari, blanc vermouth) which is a crowd fav is also delish. Their food menu is great with several small plates, including gluten‑free and vegetarian‑friendly picks. They have table seating, but our fav is their bar seating which screams glam. The vibe is lively and sophisticated, making it the perfect spot for drinks w friends.

the chicest rooftop in town rn
Overstory is a gorgeous cocktail bar located on the 64th floor above SAGA which is the talk of the town and our favorite FiDi restaurant rn. This spot has the most stunning 360‑degree views of the NYC skyline with its panoramic windows. They have incredible, hand‑crafted cocktails, as well as non‑alcoholic, beer, and wine options. We love the “212” (Whiskey, Vermouth, Cocoa Nib, Amaro, Black Pear) and the “Yucateco” (Mezcal, Gin, Banana, Hoja Santa, Chile, Lime) is to die for. If you’re looking for something non‑alcoholic, you have to try the delicious and refreshing “Sim Simma” (Ginger, Hoja Santa, Banana, Lime, Soda). The vibe is super chic and elevated and has a “behind the curtains” speakeasy feel to it ‑ with bar seating, table seating, and a terrace. We love this spot for date night.
