This true neighborhood haunt attracts locals with its Friday social night -- a weekly promotion that through its "don't leave single" tagline ostensibly lays the groundwork for bar goers looking to get laid (uh, or find their soul mate).
And if that’s not enough, they serve happy hour every night until 10pm, which gives you no excuse not to buy the cutie you’ve been eyeing a (cheap) drink.
Seven Grand also hides the sorta-secret bar The Jackalope in the back if you want to change locations without really changing locations.
This dimly lit dive has a dingy dance floor with vibrant music, meaning whatever happens on the dance floor hopefully doesn’t stay there.
This (not so) hidden, underground speakeasy rests in the midst of Hollywood Blvd and was once called one of our sexiest bars in LA, so it’s only natural it makes our list for best bars in LA if you’re single.
Bartenders serve up infused spirits, equipped with house made syrups and garnishes for young professionals looking for something fancy to sip on.
This lively, indoor/outdoor cocktail bar has become an Eastside respite for creative types, which means that the model-y person with the floppy hat you’ve been checking out while they dance to one of the venue’s rotating DJs is probably, uh, a model. This divey cocktail bar is a hotspot for Eastside hipsters who aren’t afraid to let loose.
Once inside, the bar's got plenty more to discuss, including live jazz music and burlesque performers on the weekends, as well as showcases from rock bands and the occasional tightrope-walker. This Southern-inspired saloon has a unique drink list -- including barrel-aged cocktails -- as well as suggestive house favorites like the very boozy Sex on the Bayou.
Close quarters mean spontaneous dancing to the bands playing on the overhanging balcony which range from swing, to blues, brass, and more, and the intimate, cozy, setup on the front-porch -- with rustic fireplaces and wicker chairs -- are also perfect for quieter getting-to-know-you-and-your-tonsils “conversation.” The Well’s a longtime local favorite for singles, thanks to low-key lighting, an excellent vodka selection, and spacious (dark) leather booths, which surround the elevated square bar in the center -- making scanning the room for other single people extra-easy.
I'm a native New Yorker, born and raised — I grew up in the East Village, and I live in Brooklyn now, with many stops in between.
When I was a kid, the internet was barely a thing yet, and also I was a kid, so I didn't spend a lot of time contemplating the best dating apps for New Yorkers. These days, I don't spend much time on dating apps — something for which I am also grateful — but when I was single, I dabbled here and there, and let's be real: I would've dabbled more in apps had I been working with a more up-to-date smartphone. But I've done some research, and I can tell you that some apps stand head and shoulders above the rest in terms of dating in New York, which is a difficult enough feat as it is.
No trip to Whistler is complete until you’ve been to Buffalo Bills.
