3 Spots for a First Date
November 5th, 2011
Somewhere between exchanging the first glance to going out on the first date, you vacillate from shivers of excitement to pangs of pressure. Does choosing the spot for a first date give you a panic attack? Relax. We've got you covered.
Relaxed atmosphere. To break the ice, suggest meeting for shots at Marlusse et Lapin, a bar snug in the heart of Montmartre. Slip into the retro-style room at the back and clink glasses while lounging on an old bed...
Intimate restaurant. "Would you like to go out for dinner?" You've obviously taken a step forward by setting the date, but to avoid taking two steps back, choose a table conducive to a private tête-à-tête: Le sourire de Saïgon.
Let's get serious. Hide away in Rosebud, a cosy velvety cocktail bar that hasn't bat an eyelash since 1962. Sit at the table where Sartre and De Beauvoir used to meet. Sip a Pick me up, cross and uncross your legs, exude allure.
If that doesn't make him take you in his arms and kiss you passionately in a doorway...
