Dating places in los angeles
For one of the best and most beautiful restaurant bars in Los Angeles you have to head to Faith & Flower Downtown.It’s a beautifully designed “Art Deco” type space that makes for ideal first date ambiance. Sometimes location is key, so if you’re in the Hollywood area the best place to meet for a nice drink would be at Gwen. Stemming from it’s own classic French bistro style, Cafe Stella‘s romantic lighting and first class mixologists makes this a first date staple. It’s casual enough that you could even start with just coffees on the patio, and if all goes well transition into a couple of some of the city’s best craft cocktails. We’re all about big first impressions in LA, and whether you’re swiping right or meeting people IRL, I’ve listed out some first date spots that will at least set a good vibe. [Belle Vie] Located on Sunset Blvd in the heart of Silverlake, this dimly lit bar is the place of cinematic “LA-meets-Paris” dreams. Los Feliz is one of the best neighborhoods for a date, and if there’s one place to start the afternoon or evening off, it’s Big Bar. Tinder, Grindr, Bumble, Ok Cupid, Hinge, Hitch, and something called Coffee Meets Bagel rule the romance world and there’s probably no going back. The space is leafy and bright, and it’s usually full of people drinking cocktails, eating longganisa sandwiches, and generally treating it like it’s their neighborhood hangout (even if they drove here from Santa Monica).Still, we remain staunch believers in the art of the first date. Make a reservation because this place fills up even on weeknights.Esters is a wine bar where you’ll never hear anyone use the word “mouthfeel,” which is exactly how we like it.
If your date is a foodie or an appreciator of particularly good cocktails, Gwen is the jam.
Located in Culver City, The Wallace is the perfect bar/restaurant to first grab a drink and then sit for dinner, if you so feel like it. I take that back – my actual all time favorite restaurant.
Not to mention Culver City in general is turning into the date-spot hub with cafe lights lining the streets and a plethora of bars/activities to choose from for any post date strolls. Gjelina is located on Abbott Kinney in Venice – aka America’s “coolest” street – but the key is to definitely get a reservation, otherwise you’re stuck at the communal tables. Whether your and Eastsider or Westsider, the effort to dine or drink at Salazar is beyond worth it. BUT Cosa Buona is a bit more affordable than Gjelina, a bit more casual, and also in Echo Park – aka Oh Marvin.
Outfitted with a bar and an entire arcade, you can get cocktails for under six dollars and bowl for under . Runyon is just short enough that you’re not committing to spending too much time together, but it’s just long enough to have some decent conversation! You could finally see that spectacular star show you’ve been saying you’d catch at the Planetarium for years! So this might be a long walk, but it’s a fun one on a nice day and you get to enjoy the Venice Beach Boardwalk and the Santa Monica Pier along the way!
Plus, if you need to run from your date, this would be a natural environment in which to do that. Walking, talking, people watching, Ferris wheel riding… Whether you’re in the mood for pedal boating, a light walk, a picnic, or just some ice cream, Echo Park Lake has all kinds of fun things in store for a fun first date! It looks straight of of the 1930’s, they’ve got a full bar, AND a full kitchen with some pretty serious Neapolitan style pizzas to boot.
