Summer is the season of bikinis, rooftop bars, dancing, outdoor make outs and impromptu strangers with the perfect accent that comes along with unforgettable flings. Take this chance to ask the cute guy/girl from English class out on a date or rekindle an old flame. The big apple has you at the palm of her hand. Here are some ideas to flutter your heart.
Summer is the perfect time to complete the items off of your buckets lists. Jet skiing is a once in a lifetime experience, why not have someone company you while at it. Imagine your date sitting behind you with the wind through your hair, sea-water spray on your body and the smell of the ocean. Rockaway Jet Ski is NYC #1 Jet Ski Rental company offering multiple water sports activities and a new lens to the skyscrapers. By the time you grow tired, you can dry up in the bar Thai Rock Deck and Bar with fine entertainments.
Put on some funky skates and leisurely roll around the rink with your partner. Roller skating is a relaxing experience that anybody can enjoy. Roller Jam USA kept the 70s vibe and 50s jams for those of us that are so madly fond of the allure of nostalgia; you can be Gil Pender for the night. This is the ultimate setting to turn friends into more than friends. Whether it’s dancing to the disco music or trying to stay balanced on the rink it’s the perfect opportunity to hold your date’s hand without being awkward.
Take a walk around Central Park, stop by The Loeb Boathouse, and indulge at their lakeside dining with the view of the boat rowers. After a fine time of laughing at other people’s expense, grab an oar yourself and rent a boat from the company, and row to the heart of the Central Park. Not to mention boys can show off their perfectly toned bicep while girls let the natural sunlight shine their prettiest side. The pair can spend the time to get to know each other while enjoying a new perspective of the Essex House. On the other hand, if you are going for fancy, we have boat ride update 2.0 for you: Gondola. You can have authentic Venetian Gondola Tour right in the City with the delightful host. When it comes to it, being on the water is totally romantic and I bet deep inside we are all somewhat of a hopeless romantic.
How can one not fall in love with the idea of a revolving restaurant? You can enjoy 360 views of NYC’s skyline from the heart of the city, Time Square, away from the clueless tourists, smelly street, and the rude pedestrians. The impeccable experience and the breathtaking view makes somewhat of a great conversation piece. If things get saucy the restaurant comes pairing with a lounge. Who knows where the rabbit hole will lead us?
This place is one of my all-time favorites, it is such a package deal. Dutch Boy Burger is located on Franklin Ave, Brooklyn. It has a lot to bring to the table. When you first walk in you will see the 50s themed diner, as we continue down, the lights get dimmer and it is a room with retro arcade machines, from table hockey to Pinball as long as you have enough quarters the world is your oyster. Continuing down there is an old-schooled bar, the bar usually have movies projected on the brick wall, creating a sense of comfort. Throw it along with Trivia night every Wednesday destined to steal your heart. As the journey progresses, we are led to our final destination, an outdoor beer garden. With trees hovering over the sky and string lights running around the perimeter, it gives off the perfect summer vibe.
Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie is a hidden gem in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It’s located in a quiet rural area, unlike the City, this area can give you and your date some alone time together. The place was hard to find since it looks like a factory, but once you do the trip is totally worth it. The dessert shop offers pies and swindle while using only the freshest lemons. It’s very refreshing on a hot summer day. You can walk off to the shore bench, which offers a sight of Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan and bits of New Jersey. You and your better half can have some quality alone time together.
Gallow Green is a rooftop bar that’s modeled after a train station and enlightened with a view of Westside buildings. It’s located on top of the prominent hotel that Sleep No More takes place. The bar is designed with greenery along with shimmering lights, which makes it very dreamy. The live music adds to the enchantingness, which forms a secret garden allusion.
