You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so go with one of these fool-proof first date destinations. We can’t insure your date will be top shelf, but at least you’ll look like a catch for picking the perfect spot to get to know your next ex.
Put down a blanket and snuggle up in front of The Miami Beach Soundscape Park’s WALLCAST™ (a.k.a WALLCAST™.) Showings of classic movies play every Wednesday, or catch a broadcasted symphony on the lawn on a Saturday. Either way, you can't go wrong with this smart-chic venue that is sure to break the ice. Just remember a bottle of wine, glasses and a great blanket to keep you both cozy.
Equally effective for an anniversary or a home-run first date, this garden in the sky offers sparkling views of Miami beach and beyond. With a sexy menu of ceviche and European-influenced dishes that wont leave you too full to have fun later. Swanky lounge music and soft breezes gives a new twist to a classic “top of the tower” experience.
3 Living Room at the W
Specialty cocktails not found elsewhere in the city will get things rolling from this art-filled hotel lobby that smells divine. It's also a perfect jump off point: if things go well hit up Mr.Chow or The Dutch. If things aren’t great meet your friends later at Wall, and if they’re really great, cozy up in a cabana poolside with a craft cocktails with fresh muddled blackberries.
4 Your Private Club
Membership has its privileges so show them off. Whether you take your date to the screening nook at Soho House, dinner at Riviera or hit the courts for a game of tennis and lunch at Fischer Island (that might just end Love - 40 if you're lucky.) Showing off your club is the best way to reel them in.
5 The Patio at Smith & Wollensky
Sunsets are sexy…and southing. Ease the way on your first date with drinks and spectacular views at this famous South Pointe steak house. But keep in mind, going for the surf (ie steamed lobster) might be even more impressive than the turf. Afterwards take a walk around the park to work off all that drawn butter.
