First Date Spot: Lounge/Wine Bar????

Looking for a lounge/wine bar/ casual restaurant or hotel bar for a first date on Sunday night. Need to stay between Chelsea/Flatiron and the UWS.

Any creative or unpredictable suggestions for a good glass of wine and laid back conversation?

  1. Wined Up (Bwy between 20th and 21st) is supposed to be great.

        second Flatiron Lounge - great atmosphere and drinks

          I third Flatiron Lounge. I had a first date there a few months ago, and found the atmosphere to be absolutely perfect. Plus, they have one of the better drink lists in town.

      2. Wined up is great. The offer all their wines as flight for five dollars each.

        1. Barcibo on Broadway at 69th. Super cute intimate spot with great wines and small plates. Very quiet. Love it there!

            I love the window seats @ Barcibo, I only wish they had more than 4.

          2. Vintage New York (93rd & Broadway). Great wine selections, small selection of foods. Their SoHo location has a more extensive menu.
