“Oh, I forgot about him,” is a typical phrase I’ll hear my friends say while attempting to balance a relationship with grad school. Since I rarely see my husband, we typically try to head to new places in the city whenever we can. I’ve researched the next spots on our list, and wanted to share them with you in case you are interested in your own date night in the West Village… (Also, if anyone wants to subtly pass these suggestions on to my husband, go for it!)

Start your night with a 6pm happy hour at Amelie Wine Bar. We can’t guarantee they’ll have any specials, but it’s a great place to grab a glass of wine before it gets too crowded (typically, around 7pm).

Keep the wine flowing and grab some dinner at dell’anima, one of the best Italian spots in the West Village. Although crowded with a lively atmosphere of friends and fellowship, you’ll still be able to hear each other to converse about your recent research in Linguistics–or perhaps your dog!

Next, cool down at the Comedy Cellar with a stand-up comedy show! Lineups can be found on their website with shows starting as late as 10:30pm or 11:30pm to accommodate for your dinner plans!

Still thirsty? Grab one last cocktail at The Garret (West) nearby. Hidden behind stairs in the West Village Five Guys, this speakeasy is worth seeing whether it’s on this date or at another time!

End the night at Karaoke Boho – West4 where you can either rent a private karaoke room with your friends OR spot a celebrity like Amy Schumer singing in the main room.

And finally, if needed for your commute home on 1, Bleecker Street Pizza once won “Best Pizza in New York” and can satisfy your late night hunger.

Now, go out there and enjoy your night on the town!
