The Perfect Summer Date Night in New York

Stumped on where to go and what to wear for a summer date night in New York? The search ends now. To give you some inspiration, we crafted a list of New York's most innovative date spots for a hot evening out, and our genius outfit ideas to match each occasion.

Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Jane's Carousel is a dazzlingly restored merry-go-round tucked under the Brooklyn bridge. If you’re taking a ride on the antique carousel, strolling along the promenade, or setting up a picnic lunch, the views from Brooklyn Bridge Park are tough to top. While in the area, don't forget to stop at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory for locally made Philadelphia-style scoops with your love.

Wearing a playful top with balloon sleeves or ruffles and be a kid again!


Milk and Roses

This restaurent features a secret outdoor garden, live music, and a cozy library bar with a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf. You’ll definitely be into the long list of pastas and even longer list of wines - nothing says romance like tortellini and a Tuscan red, after all.

Forget the LBD — jumpsuits get our vote for the must-wear item this summer date night. Throw one on with a few standout accessories and you’re ready for whatever comes your way.



Island Oyster

This 32,000-square-foot venue contains a waterfront bar, a separate white-marble oyster bar and four large, communal mahogany tables for sipping warm-weather cocktails alfresco or trying those craft beers. Enjoy gorgeous views of Manhattan and sip your cocktail as the sun sets — perfect for a romantic couple.

Combining the basic white tee with something bold, like a faux leather mini skirt with ruffles, studs or zip details.


Gansevoort Park Avenue Rooftop Pool

Summer in NYC can sometimes mean it's too hot to do anything. The most nothing-esque activity we can think of is taking a dive or dip into the rooftop pool at Gansevoort Hotel. Not to mention, the view is one of a kind and offers unobstructed 360 glimpses of numerous NYC towers including the Empire State Building.

Check out those swimsuits and cover ups that make you feel comfortable, confident, and sexy both in and out of the water!


Rooftop Movie on the YOTEL New York Terrace

Why spend these warm summer nights couped up in a movie theater when you can spend them high above the city watching movie, crunching popcorn, and drinking cocktails? With panoramic views and stunning sunsets, movies have never looked so great!

Embrace the easy, breezy charm of summer and keep your night look fresh and airy with those colorful dresses!
