My secret sexdate
Grab a drink at any of these great happy hour spots and get a feel for the situation. Hit up bars like Fat Cat, Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, Burnside, or Barcade to get your blood flowing for whatever might come later. But finding a grill and setting up shop in one of NYC’s many parks is total FWB zone. But I’m talking about the Boobie Trap, a Brooklyn dive bar with a focus on beer, barbecue, and... Decked out with rubber boob blobs and limbless, topless mannequins, this bar has everything you and your “friend” will need to have a laid-back, casual evening with not-so-subtle sexual undertones. Plus, you also have the best view of Times Square in maybe the world.If it’s going well, you can be totally honest that you lied about having plans later. Add to that a cooler of well-concealed beers and a quick bee-line to your apartment and you’ve got it made. And Times Square is at its best when 1) you're not right in the middle of it, and 2) your pockets are becoming more and more full of breadsticks while you look at it.The term “dating” in New York tends to make us recoil in fearful disgust, because it oozes with eau d’commitment, and that’s not a New Yorker’s favorite scent.We call it “hanging out,” mostly because we’re probably “hanging out” with three or four people at a time. These dates can be slightly more romantic than the FWB dates, but not SO romantic as to let your partner think he or she is the only one on the menu.Hit one of New York’s many breweries, where you can both discuss your mutual love of IPAs and overall dislike of Belgian wheats.
If you’re dating for sex and sex only (and as long as both parties know this), you don’t have to put in that much effort. Consider spots like Berry Park, Northern Territory, Cantina Rooftop, or Welcome to the Johnson’s, Rudy’s, Grassroots Tavern... One of the greatest dives in NYC is Milano’s Bar on E Houston.
There are now a few outposts of this beloved Williamsburg #foodporn extravaganza, which means there are now several locations from which to choose if neither of you lives in or near Williamsburg.
Whichever one you opt for, make sure you have a divide-and-conquer tactic and then meet up over some beers to share your spoils; because nothing says casual romance like offering someone a bite of your ramen burger.
At Rockwood there are three separate stages and often you can catch sets late into the night.
Plus its Lower East Side location puts you within a stone’s throw of tons of great bars and restaurants should the night want to go really late.
Maybe you’re going here because you hooked up the night before, or maybe you are just meeting up for daytime debauchery, which will then lead to hooking up.
